Project log feedback

Hi everyone,

I'd like to get your opinion about project logs. Personally, I find the forum pages suboptimal for sharing projects because the type of content that can be displayed is limited (text, code and images) and it's very difficult to make them look good. In addition, ongoing projects where the author regularly posts updates quickly become messy, which makes it difficult to find the most up to date code, schematics or any type of information.

That's why I made hackster.io. It allows sharing hardware projects in a cleaner and more structured way. It also has dedicated project repositories "slash" communities pages for all hardware platforms and there's one for Arduino: hackster.io/arduino

I'd really love to hear what you guys think about it. First of all do you think that's useful? How could it be improved? Any comments, suggestions or critics are welcome.

Thanks so much in advance for your feedback! Cheers, Ben

Do you have a link to a sample project that does a good job of using the features available? With a quick browse, I didn't see any projects with prominent schematics or code, so it's hard to say whether it's better or worse than (say) github, google code, or instructables. I didn't care for the two-column layout...

Sure! Here's a handful that I think do a good job at it: http://www.hackster.io/cedric/twi http://www.hackster.io/mattthebaker/metalamp http://www.hackster.io/cincodenada/controller-pro http://www.hackster.io/rayburne/the-qbf-signal-generator

Well, we've seen that last one mentioned before, as Ray is a frequent contributor here, so if all the others are that good, it's a goer!
