no love for my meta post? I would expected an answer by now, haha
 
You have to wait for those in charge at SE to see it @ZachSaucier No one actually at the site controls that.. it takes SE staff.. and they may not check in over the weekend unless there's an emergency.
 
I see
 
1:56 AM
nice find though, I never would have spotted that
 
I have an eye for design details, unlike the rest of you ;)
 
the hackathon is over now, the finished product: ss15-kipcast.divshot.io/# (use Chrome)
(so please don't point out any design bugs or you might make me cry)
I'm already aware of at least 3 :P
 
haha
weird, so I enter the visual username, not the acct one
what if there are dupes?
 
visual won't work, only the "vanity url" one
 
that's really awesome though!
@JohnB I see
is it okay if I use it with friends or is the server fragile?
 
2:02 AM
i.e. whatever your it says for http://steamcommunity.com/id/<your profile>
use it all you like
 
sweet
 
if it fails, it's probably YQL :)
the theme of the hackathon was static web applications, no custom server back end
so we scrape all the steam stuff using YQL. and it can be flakey. So we try and cache as much as we can
 
still awesome
did you win?
 
we won't find out for a few days, we have 24 hours to edit our team page (judging instructions and other stuff)
then there are two rounds of judging
I think maybe next week we'll find out

lol
 
2:06 AM
:)
 
totally useless log other than for comedy xD
 
haha yeah
 
@JohnB do you have a Twitter?
 
somewhere...I don't use it though
 
I rarely use mine
was just going to tag you when posting your tool
 
2:13 AM
ah, well thanks!
you can tag @staticshowdown, that's the organizer twitter
 
should update your about page with usage statistics
I'm sure my friends will give it a try
 
ah that would have been a good idea, not allowed to edit anymore unfortunately though

we won't find out for a few days, we have 24 hours to edit our team page (judging instructions and other stuff)
I thought you could edit your "team page"?
 
yeah, only markdown can go on there though. Example: 2015.staticshowdown.com/teams/this-is-sparta
(ours isn't written or published yet)
that one I linked did a very nice job as well
 
ya, that's why you can include statistics so far :)
 
2:20 AM
ah that's a good point
 
will those links be permanent?
 
the app link? Pretty sure but they don't really tell us
our app from last year is still up at least
 
I like your submission for this year better :)
 
me too, we did a lot more planning this year
you can do all the planning you want before hand, no programming of course
 
I feel like this question should have better tags, but the ones I think of aren't made
I flagged several questions today... I don't usually. 6 in the last 24 hours
 
 
1 hour later…
3:47 AM
edited, thanks
