Eric, you have left, amongst others, the following recent samples of "projects".

09/10_3200_high-end PCB_jenniferzhao_ Spam


You have allowed these to remain.



Only through ignorance. I didn't know that these existed and they weren't on Stan's list.

Look, Ross, weren't not being capricious about removing projects. This is a learning process for myself and others. Ok? I'll take care of those.

Ok, I removed the 4 plus the other one about the shoes, noted above.

Let me know of any others.

Concerning the New Project / Add Project page - if changing the greeting/notification text please fix this item -- Replace Academy with AVR Smile

Quote:
Please do not submit unfinished projects! The Academy Projects area is a place to share your completed projects with others. If you have a project in progress, or a project looking for contributors, please post a thread in the Academy Forum to gain feedback. Once your masterpiece is complete, of course, we would love to see it here in the Academy Projects section.

Good morning Eric.

A better looking day greets me here.

I refer you to Stan's list at

http://www.avrfreaks.net/index.php?name ... 979#891979

This has direct links to the projects, amongst which are:

3119, no posts, attachment (downloaded >100 times) is the school assignment document ... not the solution. Flush candidate.

3109, from "Trolll" (maybe a hint Laughing ), links to suspect website about health insurance. Flush candidate.

3096, no posts, no code etc. Flush candidate.

3072, no posts, no code etc. Flush candidate.

3040, no posts, just "hi plz read first", user does not exist, no code. Flush candidate.

I could go on and on, but I think you should get the idea.

Cheers,

Ross

Stan sent me a PM about this list (Thanks, Stan! Smile ). I've removed the projects off of that list.

Again, please let me know of any more.

It would probably be helpful to Eric if discussion ceased in this thread and just one person were to make empty project post notifications, appending them into the current/last post such that they're not scattered. Then Eric would not have to search and could more easily place a notation in that post upon deletion of the included items. This was my intention a year ago when I was maintaining a list like those two above, but things didn't work out.

It would also be helpful to allow a few days empty/spam projects to accumulate, so Eric could check in once or twice a week and delete the projects in one swell foop. Of course if there is an especially offense project post then Eric should be pm'd about it. I'm sure Eric has better things to do than spending significant time in dealing with each individual empty/spam project as it arrives.

To make formatted entries like I've done above, I can provide a worksheet formula for Excel - where you would (1) copy the entire project text and paste it into a worksheet, (2) type the four digit project number from the url into a cell, and (3) enter a comment about the project into another cell (4) then copy the cell containing the formula and paste into your post. The formula will manage font color, boldness and create a link to the offending project. I can try doing this in Open Office too if requested.

Hi Stan,

Do I hear you volunteering?

Cheers,

Ok, I deleted the ones that somehow didn't get deleted.

It was probably because I was trying to delete a bunch of them in parallel and somehow they didn't take. Sad

OK, but a few changes and rules to make it work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sticky: Dead/empty Project reports - report here for deletion
Rename to -- Sticky: Dead/empty/spam Project Report [Cliff: done]

Only two posts in the topic, the announcement by cleaner and one by myself, enforced by the admins and moderators, no discussion. The cleaner's announcement post should reflect this new method of reporting - this needs to be edited (much more than just the "for you"): [I'll give a chance for some discussion about this then pare the thread down to what you suggest]

Quote:
This thread is for you to report any entries in the "Projects" section of this site that appear to be empty/unfinished/spam. The only valid projects in that section are complete/documented ones. Anything else should be reported here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topic: OLD: Dead/empty Project reports - report here for deletion
Rename to -- Topic: Dead/empty/spam Project Discussion

Discussion continues here with current sticky grafted to end.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am open to suggestions if anyone has a better idea.

My past project reporting.
When I was maintaining a list in October of last year, like I've proposed here, I sent the offenders a PM giving them a grace period of nearly a day to fix/delete their project. I maintained a half dozen PM's with boiler plate ready to send off, but added a paragraph or so characterized to the miscreant's offense. Being mindful of grammar and coherency I spent too much time composing, often these came up at inopportune times for me.

Going forward.
I will no longer give grace periods, will send more generic PM's. I intend to keep a running list of offending projects - new ones added at the bottom with deleted projects being noted so. With the cleaner's post as the sticky place holder I can delete my current post (the last post in topic!) and make a new one with the updated report - triggering the unread flag. I don't intend to PM admins/Eric unless a week goes with no deletions. I'm not scanning AVRfreaks 24/7, so don't get bothered if it takes me 12 hours occasionally to update the report with a new bastard project.

Next Up.
Lame projects - I will start a discussion of what constitutes a valid project. Will present my idea of the desired and minimum project information. To include another report with links and comments as examples. Give me a week to gather before posting.

Stan

A proteus screen shot and nothing more.

http://www.avrfreaks.net/index.php?module=Freaks%20Academy&func=viewItem&item_id=2847&item_type=project

To me, this one is incomplete. A fairly sophisticated (code wise) 8x8 led project with no schematic. It can be traced out from the photos and code, but really should have a schematic. Use your judgment.

This project states that it is for the avr32 GNU toolchain, but the only code posted is for the SX18. (PIC on steroids)

Date_ Link_ Description_____________ Author____ Offense
10/23/05_451_I Ching Machine_Baz_Baz_ PIC code

The compiler was previously "GNU avr-gcc" for this project and for the posted date, "2005-10-23", the "AVR32 GNU Toolchain" did not exist.

It appears that the indexed compiler drop-down listing was edited, where an admin decided that "WinAVR (GNU GCC)" and "GNU avr-gcc" were redundant and replaced the indexed "GNU avr-gcc" with "avr32 GNU toolchain" rather than adding it to the list.

This occured in mid-February 2009 for all projects where compiler "GNU avr-gcc" was selected now show "AVR32 GNU Toolchain."

My previous comments on this compiler drop-down issue: AVR32 to AVR8


The linked code in this project is indeed assembler for some sort of PIC.
