Weekly Update 57: Ten million searches, bug hunts, and Meetup events!
As you might have heard, we've recently crossed ten million searches a day, which means that a whole lot of people are going to see your work.
So I think it's time for us to go on a bug hunt. Test our instant answers on https://duck.co/ia, and tell us if you find anything wrong with the results that you get. Maybe it doesn't work in your country or maybe things don't work as you'd expect. We'd love any kind of feedback on them!
New Instant Answer Ideas:
- Games Cheat Sheet
Help us create cheat sheets for popular games! There's already one for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.
- Project Euler Questions
Find Project Euler questions right on DuckDuckGo.
- Julian Calendar conversion
Convert regular dates to Julian calendar expression.
- Emacs Cheat Sheet: Wrong source URL
The URL doesn't link to the correct Emacs Cheat Sheet source.
- Seasons: Wrong dates for Southern Hemisphere
Typing in "first day of summer" in the southern hemisphere doesn't give the right results!
- Color Codes: Goes to an empty results page
On Safari, the URL leads to a blank page.
- HackagePackages: Find new data source
The old API endpoint no longer works. Help us find an alternative that we can use!
Some CSS selectors in the cheat sheets won't work on IE 8.
- Indeed Jobs: Implement new footer design
There is a new footer design which would suit the Instant Answer better. See if you can implement it!
Have a good weekend!
