@eclectic Use the Report print function (three dots in the top right corner). For the reason, select Other a write the category suggestion you have 🙂
We might implement a better way in the future, but at the moment, this would be the best way to do it.

Hi,

Thanks for this site. Could it be possible to have the option to write the description in markdown for prints?

We used to use markdown, but we have since replaced it with the much more user-friendly WYSIWIG editor.
So just use that for headings, tables, bullet points, adding images etc. 😉

much more user-friendly WYSIWIG editor.

What's friendly depends a lot on the user. The best would be to have both options.

@marvin @dmarting We do support both to an extent 🙂

If you type "# " it will switch to a heading instantly. If you use "*" it will switch to bold text, etc. 

We have to pick where to spend developer time and try to use it as effectively as possible. WYSIWYG editors are now present in almost every text editor/web form (including this forum), so that's what we primarily use as well. The support of markdown is there, but it isn't 100%, if you copy-paste text, it won't get translated. We could spend more time on that, but I don't think it's a very high priority task, we better work on stuff that everyone will benefit from. Like we did in the past with collections, 3D viewers for STL/3MF/G-codes, notes for files, folders...

A big thanks for PrusaPrinters, it's a really nice site and I hope it will grow into a great alternative for Thingiverse. My initial impression when first landing on the site was: what a breath of fresh air.

There are a few usability issues I've run into though:

  • Links on the internet should not include the language (e.g. /de/) in the url (or at least cause it to change), this changes my language which is set to English, just by clicking a link, then this setting is saved until I change it back. A better place to store language could be user account/cookie/local storage.
  • Cookies / session storage should not be used for login redirect, I keep multiple tabs open and every time my browser decides to log me out, all my PrusaPrinters tabs are redirected to one and the same page, I often lose things I keep open and want to remember for later. A better place for login redirect is the URL because it will work across tabs, page reloads and closing / reopening the browser (with restored tabs).
  • When browsing prints through multiple pages (infinite scrolling), if I click a print and then return via back-button, the previous position (i.e. print in focus) is not restored, it's easy to lose the place where you were. It's not entirely bad since you at least land on the same page as before, but you also can't scroll back up and you can't return to a previous page. This usually forces me to open prints in new tabs and I end up with even more tabs. 😆
  • Collections are limited to 10, would be nice to be able to create any number of collections to help with organizing cool stuff we find on the site.

These are most of the annoyances I've run into while hanging out on the site, I hope you can take them under consideration. Keep up the good work!

Been a while and I'm still seeing that second point where _all_ tabs logout simultaneously and redirect to the same point. Have a bunch of tabs open for things you want to read about? Too bad, auto logout and it's all gone.

Had hoped this would be a good alternative to ThV but bothersome quirks like that are all too familiar.

STL preview would also be great.

Is there any official stance on linking back to Thingiverse in case of remixes?

3D viewer

We have already added an interactive STL, 3MF and even a G-code viewer 🙂
And there is nothing wrong about linking back to the source of the original model, Thingiverse or elsewhere.

At least in Windows, if you "look at a file" with an application like Prusaslicer, Cura, etc., instead of explicitly downloading it, Windows downloads the file to your temp directory and then opens it with your chosen application. Therefore, you have downloaded it, and unless you have disabled it in Email notifications, you will receive an email to rate the file.
