Did these forums get upgraded again? I’ve noticed some changes in the Graphical User Interface. (I have not been here in a while )(Feb 26,2016)
@printcoder_eric I’m not aware of any changes. What sort of changes have you noticed?
Well, there are no more tags such as python, bootstrap, and homework when creating a topic and on the https://codecademy.com/learn if you click your profile picture you get something like this:
But in the old one, the “view my profile” looks the same as “my account” and “help”, instead of having your pts and profile picture.
@printcoder_eric Oh yeah, we got rid of tags a while ago since we didn’t really need them.
And yes, the menu definitely changed What do you think of the new one?
Also, notifications have been changed into a dropdown, rather than an entire page.
You mean this thing?:
'Cause if you do, it’s been like this for me since I started going to the forums.
@printcoder_eric No, sorry - the notifications on the main site:
(I wish designers with their fancy Macs would remember that
overflow: scroll; looks bad on the majority of computers )
What do you use? mac or pc?
How do you get the code? Or do you guess?
Also, what is "hipster technology? Just some slang?
Oh, Linux, always
I’ve just used CSS, and happen to know which property/value causes a scrollbar to appear when there shouldn’t be one.
I’m not sure there’s really any real definition. If you watch tech news, you should understand after a little while
Hipster developers are (in my opinion, usually) devs who want the fanciest, coolest new tool. For example, that’s why a lot of people like Macs; they have a shiny/fancy interface and make doing simple stuff easy. (I don’t mean to bash on Apple, a lot of their stuff is high-quality*, but they’re a well-known brand, so I’m just using them as an example)
So hipster technology would (I guess) usually be the tools a hipster developer uses.
*A lot of people who need the high-quality of Macs don’t need the quality, a $100 Chromebook would be fine for them.
I can say more, but this is NOT a Mac vs. Windows vs. Linux debate.
Aww, but it would be so much fun to start that debate!
This is offtopic but:
It’s a bit old, and got closed because although it was funny the comments got a bit heated.
It’s here if you want to continue to discussion as it’s been re-opened but keep it civil
Thanks. Time to do my work. Muahahahaha…
