This is definitely more of a place aimed towards "make whatever sounds like fun" and not somewhere to try and make an income (although, if you can....then do it!).

As for "customs" - just be friendly.  We try not to moderate when it isn't needed (and honestly, it's VERY rare for moderation to happen for anything other than spam, or just to split off a post into it's own topic so the main thread doesn't get derailed).  I wouldn't say this is an "anything goes" place, but the users here basically self-moderate for the most part.

As for your software suggestion, I haven't seen it personally, but it is well established that any suggestion of any single thing on this forum can be expected to have alternatives suggested in its place haha.  Coding Snacks aren't always picked up quickly, and the userbase generally understands this so attempts to give other options for people to use until somebody codes the custom solution :)

If you have any more questions, then feel free to drop them, or you can also drop by our Discord to chat with us and mouser!

Ok, cool.  (I was thinking more about if it's a place where the coders come to make an income or just to hang out and code fun stuff.  Again, back to my example of r/slavelabour on Reddit.)

And I guess I got lucky with my request, it was picked up right away.  Which probably also effected my read on what kind of culture this place had.  I honestly was expecting to have to wait a bit.

I think I'll be fine here.  Probably, lol.  I did have one comment misread a bit (not the one with CodeZwerg), but while I'm wysiwyg and can be direct, I'm not a hater, ha, I can say that.

Thanks!

Honestly, some snacks can be picked up within minutes, others can go unanswered for weeks.  It's 100% "luck of the draw" and there's no real logic to it haha.

As for "what should I donate" - donate whatever you feel is appropriate for the work done.  Nobody here really EXPECTS a donation, so when we do get one, it's a nice surprise!

hi Jasong,
lots of people here aren't coders. If you make a request, people will make suggestions of software that might do that already (why reinvent the wheel) and people will make suggestions of workarounds (fwiw they may or may not be coders, doesn't matter...).
In the thread you posted in, a couple of people were negative about the idea of coding something cause they felt the workaround was a better, or a good enough solution. Everyone who posted in that thread was being helpful -- naturally that doesn't mean you agree with or follow their advice.

People who code 'snacks' or apps do it if they want (and have the time) and don't if the idea doesn't interest them. Re donating: it's always nice to donate to say thank you. If you request something, you could always ask per private-message (PM) what the coder's expectations are. I reckon a lot of people donate according to their means. One could also donate to someone who has given particularly helpful advice. There's no rules about any of it though.

Ok, thanks, noted.  I recall one person, who commented in this thread also and to whom I'm about to reply to, posted they weren't interested and I thought nothing else.  On reread I see they did actually suggest one thing.  The other thing was just using regular system functions, or at least that's how I read it.

And then on the coding- noted.  I guess I'm looking to orient myself if this is like a place where hobbiests hang out and help people out when they want, or is this more like a place where people come to earn income. Like r/slavelabour, on Reddit.  And places can have customs or conventions/expectations that are unspoken, and if there were any, I'd want to know as a guy is about to finish my request.

Thanks for your thoughts, appreciated!

If you are manually making the list of games, you could just import the list as a CSV into Google forms and use that (drop-down for selection and such).

Probably how I'd do it just because it's easy and quick haha

Hey guys,

Just a real quick update:

Tech News (on its own) was absolutely BORING to research, write out, record, etc, so...I scrapped it, redesigned the entire show, and am relaunching under a new format that will be far less tedious to produce and be more fun to listen to!

I'll still be covering tech news, but that will now be reduced to a segment on the show (where it's needed, and maybe not in every episode cause there's not always anything of note to talk about).

I'll now be talking about tech, science, innovations (etc) in a more general manner!

I'll close this thread as the new show is now detailed on the following thread:

NEW PODCAST SHOW INFORMATION: https://www.donation....msg443281#msg443281

The show is returning very soon, so if you have anything you want me to talk about/any shout-outs, etc, then feel free to let me know!

I am looking to buy myself a good microphone as I want to start streaming, which one would you actually recommend me, or in case there is anyone who is streaming in here, which microphone are you using?

Not for live-streaming (but I could), I use a selection of Zingyou (Chinese) Condensor Microphones + a Behringer (u-phoria um2) interface (to provide 48v power and physical gain control).  I know people don't usually recommend Chinese stuff, but honestly, these microphones I got were both super cheap (<£50 each), came with everything they needed (telescopic arm, leads, pop filter, etc) and I have had 0 problems with a single one of them!

I'd highly recommend a telescopic arm for your microphone + a good pop filter!

Also, as for software, a mixture of Voicemeeter and CARLA (for VST plugins/effects) should be more than enough.

Hey guys & girls!

After a bit of a rethink about the Tech News podcast I was doing, I have completely revamped the entire show!

Instead of being "Tech News", I now discuss Tech, Science, Innovations, Games & Other random fun stuff! 

The relaunch is happening VERY soon!

:-[ Are you still having such an awesome fundraiser? I have been using lots of the stuff here over the time and I would like to contribute seeing how much it helps you going on.

The 2018 Fundraiser has long since ended, but if you wish to make a contribution to the website (and get yourself a lifetime key to DC software too!) then you can do so here: https://www.donationcoder.com/donate

Once you have donated then you can choose to donate it all to the website, or you can distribute "DonationCredits" to users (You choose how much and to who).  You can do this by clicking on a users profile (after you have donated), scrolling down on the first page and clicking "Make a donation to this user" - for example, https://www.donation...p?action=profile;u=2 - this link will take you to mousers profile (mouser being the owner of DonationCoder.com), where you can see the option :)

*edit*

I just wanted to apologise for the delay in approving your message on the forum.  On the weekends, first post approvals move a little slower :)

Haha, as if the mugs would actually exist... they stopped being shipped last year!  :P

Thank you for another round of NANY, everyone!


Stopped being shipped?  What is that a reference to?

God only knows.

Shipping for the mugs will be slower than normal, but they have not been stopped.

Epic Games Store is giving away a new game each day for the next two weeks: "Drop in daily to collect up to fifteen FREE games."

Skylines is 75% off, not free for me :(

You missed it by two days. There's a new free game each day for 24 hours.

Yeah I realised after I posted haha - turns out I owned Skylines anyway so didn't need it :D

I won't be updating this thread each day, but figured I'd post about the offer. And while I'm here, I should mention that today's free game is Cities Skylines.

Skylines is 75% off, not free for me :(

Scratch that - I just noticed you posted 2 days ago so I probably missed it haha

Your Facebook Friends Are Wrong About The Lockdown:
http://www.wrongaboutlockdown.com/

I'll take my pandemic advice from qualified Virologists and other scientists, rather than a historian with delusions of grandeur.

Agreed, but that moves this to the basement, so I refrained from commenting.  It might be better to nip this here- or transfer the whole thing to the Basement.

Y'all can move it to Basement if you want....I like to live in my little bubble where I forget that place exists :')

Agreed though, bad move on my part to comment on it

Let's nip it here and carry on with the thread as it was!  :D

Hey,

I'm really sorry but this project was done like 7 years ago on an old computer and I never saved the code so I have absolutely no way to add anything to it.

If you need anything added to it then you will need to post in Coding Snacks or somewhere to ask someone to make you a new bit of software (I haven't coded in about 2 years now except for tiny utilities for myself).

Sorry again,

-Stephen

I assume you mean on mobile?

I just took a screenshot of Netflix (PC) with no problems  :huh:

(Edit:)

I took the screenshot via the browser version of Netflix, not the app - are you using the apps?

I see in Sumo that someone is running a version 2.55. Am I missing a newer update/download somewhere?
Best,

The latest version of Sumo is 5.11.8.469.


He's talking about the version of CH&S, not Sumo.
