Thanks.

- "You can add images to replies..." But you can add screenshots to new threads. Why not replies? If your server supports it, it's nice to upload directly to the servers of the forum that's going to use it.

Thanks for the link to snag.gy. This will be quite useful for me (No account!?

The "You left the wizard..." is not the problem. The problem is that after I end the wizard, he always comes back when I visit the translate pages.
a comment on the General Rambling Three Small Problems With Duck.co 3 years and 10 months ago
Hi,

I love Duck.co. It's one of the most beautiful sites I've ever seen and extremely easy to use. However, there are three problems I've come across which should be easy to fix:
- In translation menus (DuckDuckGo.com in English in Canada), the Canadian flag, representing the country, is off center, with a wider red band on the left than on the right. (It would be cool if this could be replaced by the circular icons in the DDG region-centric results menu)
- You can't edit your replies on the forum.
- You can't post screenshots in your replies on the forum.

I also have found that after I leave the Duck.co translation menus, the wizard follows me around saying "You left your wizard! He is lonely!". I found this rather heart-breaking, but I wish that after I Ended the wizard, he wouldn't appear again next time I go to the translation page.

Cheers,

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Images results page direct URL 3 years and 10 months ago
Perhaps it would be cool if:
- Going to duckduckgo.com/?q=world&inst=images would bring up images as the main instant answer.
- Banging with !i would go to the DDG images instant answer instead of to Google Images (!gi would go to Google)

Another problem I find is that if I decide I want to watch a video on DuckDuckGo through the videos instant answer, I have to enable the scripts through NoScript. Once done, it reloads the page, and loses my position in the videos tab. It needs to remember I was in the videos tab and probably my rough scroll location, probably through JavaScript.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Browser autocomplete missing? 3 years and 10 months ago
That would be cool...

If you don't mind still using the greasemonkey script, you might be able to get it to work with the JS by going to duckduckgo.com/settings, scrolling down to Auto-Suggest and turning it to Off.

I don't know if this will work but it may stop the JavaScript that is bringing up the auto suggest (therefore allowing room for the browser). ...perhaps...

Hope that's useful.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling September DDG Logo Ideas 3 years and 10 months ago
Thanks. I mostly use en.wikipedia.org/wiki/[date] and scroll down the Holidays And Observances section.

I might be interested in doing some other ones for fun if they were suggested. However, I can't guarantee I'll have time.
a comment on the General Rambling September DDG Logo Ideas 3 years and 10 months ago
Hi,

After creating a couple logos for August, I've created quite a lot more for September:
- 01: First Day Of School
- 13: International Chocolate Day
- 15: International Day of Democracy
- 22: Hobbit Day
- 28: World Heart Day

Hope you enjoy.

Note: I did come across a couple other observances for September, but couldn't think of a way to represent them:
- 15: World Lymphoma Awareness Day
- 16: International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer
- 18: World Water Monitoring Day
- 21: International Day of Peace
- 22: OneWebDay
- 23: Celebrate Bisexuality Day

I'd love to see if someone could tackle them.

As long as you're not in the tenth that is blown up?

Perhaps get from comments/prices on Amazon, Ebay and Craigslist...

Cool idea. I like it.

Hi,

As I understand, DDG has NOT joined forces with Apple. DDG is a search engine, Apple provides a browser (Safari). Apple now uses DDG as one of it's search engines.

Apple has no more joined forces with DDG then Microsoft joined forces with Google when it put Google as an alternative default search engine in IE.

Likewise, neither Ubuntu nor Mozilla joined forces with DDG when Canonical (the maker of Ubuntu) put DDG as a search engine in Firefox Ubuntu.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Save Settings 3 years and 10 months ago
Hi,

I believe there was an update to DDG's settings page lately and it may have caused disturbances. Try setting them again (the new settings page is AWESOME) and see what happens.

This may or may not be the cause. Hopefully the DDG staff can figure it out.

Cheers,
