Deleted messages?

How come when I delete a message (for instance, just to clean up my orangeboard area) it doesn't actually delete the comment- instead it just hides the comment behind something that says it's been deleted, but it's still there cluttering up my orangeboard? This also seems to happen in the instructables themselves. If I make an error in a comment, delete it and then re-write it correctly - there I am with my message, and another one below it saying it's been deleted or removed etc. Why don't these things just go away when we delete them?

Flame Message

Hey everyone, this is my first post and i was wondering how i would spell out a message on the ground in flames for a special occasion. I saw this sort of thing in the movie Daredevil, i think... where the police officer threw a lit cigarette on the ground and it ignited "DAREDEVIL" in flames on the ground... i noticed it burned for a while as i was watching the movie, and i talked with some other people about it and they suggested it could be some sort of gel... any ideas?

Arduino messaging system

Hi everybody, Not long ago I had an idea about a messaging system based on a simple client-server architecture. Nothing new so far, but my idea was to optimize any exchanged message or sentence for a 4x20 LCD display, so that an arduino client could be easily coded. In fact, I liked the idea so much, that I already wrote a server prototype, as well as the arduino client. I gave this project the name "C0ldWater". The client is based on an arduino board, which uses an ethernet shield for internet connectivity, a 4x20 lines LCD display as an output device and a ps/2 keyboard for user input. I also bought a VPS, on which I run the server and a blog. You can reach it at www.c0ldwater.com and you will find all information and instructions to build such a device, as well as all code to be downloaded. So why am I posting here? Easy question, so here's my easy answer: because I already went through a first sort of alpha testing on my own, but I still need some help from anyone who's interested in this project, to get some feedback about his/her personal user experience in order to understand what sort of modifications I eventually need to implement. Nothing difficult or boring, just connect to the service and use it as a normal user: register, read, send, forward, delete or list messages and so on. I'd like to receive any suggestion, criticism or just your first impressions about the project. For those interested, but without the required hardware, I also wrote a simple linux client that can be downloaded from my site. It just creates two threads, one for receiving and one for sending data. Anyway, if you're still stacked with the win OS, you can download "netcat" and use that to connect to c0ldwater: "nc c0ldwater 8889" or "nc 5.9.252.156 8889". Thanks in advance to all of you! Cheers

I hadn't seen this bug reported. Private message without title cannot be opened. Instructables Robot should not allow to sent untitled PM.

Annoyingly disjointed words in messaging.

To the staff writing software for the site's message program, There seems to be a character limit per line when viewing messages. The sentences display from one side of the text field to the other then simply stop and continue on the next line. While that is a good thing, preventing scrolling across the screen, it also tends to cut words so that the message can be quite taxing to read. I'm viewing this in firefox on a windows 7 os.

Site messages and other changes

I've just pushed the first significant release after a couple engineering vacations.  Rested and refreshed, I offer you these updates: The confirmation/error messages that some processes give are now 'modal', meaning that instead of an easy-to-miss orange bar at the bottom of the page, they are now a box in the middle, with a button to remove them.  We found that many users did not see the bar at the bottom and were confused about whether the site did what they wanted, or why it apparently did not.  We've done some work on removing confirmations that are common enough that it would be annoying to have to close them all the time, but if we've missed any of those please don't hesitate to let us know. We've reluctantly implemented a 3-contest limit when you publish a new Instructable.  We just had too many cases where someone, for example, entered their Arduino Instructable into, say, the cupcake contest.  It became a real load on the contest managers to keep removing ineligible Instructables.  We hope that a 3-contest limit will help authors select the appropriate contest(s) to enter. We made Facebook login a bit more obvious Clarified the Pro payment page to make it clearer that there is a free account always available Couple of bugfixes around PDFs, ebooks, and patch sending That's it for now, as ever if you find problems with these or any features, let us know by adding a forum topic in the Bugs section.
