blueshift9 left a reply on Ordering Forum Threads On Last Post • 5 days ago

Well, It's doing exactly what you are telling it to do, you are telling it to order by when it was created. I assume you want to order descending by the last bit of activity, so you need to look at not just the top level post, but it's children too; and then find the one UPDATED last, not created.

oohhhhh an internet tough guy made fun of my face!

grow up. No wonder he dumped you, it's obvious you have zero idea what you are doing, and aren't too bright. Have a nice day.

blueshift9 left a reply on Taylor Otwell Cancelled My Account Without Asking Me • 2 months ago

OK, here's a comment: You were being an entitled jerk, and you don't deserve 10 days once you start insulting and assuming.

I'm sure Taylor would have helped you until you insulted him.

You must be fun at parties.

"I feel you just get the setup script from a online tutorial that works and tested in some major systems and then you have no clue how to administer and fix things and make your system compatible with all possible variations of virtualization technologies (like VMWare and OpenVZ). Fixing one possible collision in my VM may fix for other customers too. But seems you cant understand that."

Well, you started assuming things and then insulting him, I don't blame him. If you think Forge is just some custom script he grabbed somewhere, you are sorely mistaken.

There are two sides to every story, and I highly doubt someone would refuse making money off you unless you were unreasonable.

There is probably a reason you are the only person with this complaint.

Packagist was down this morning, apparently.

Might as well bail out now @Jaytee lol - OP is obviously a help vampire who is just copying and pasting and not really thinking about what they are doing.

Something on your end, most likely a browser plugin. I'd check that out first.

@sutherland Oh man, I'm with you on that - it definitely hurts usability for me too.

blueshift9 left a reply on Envoyer And Database • 7 months ago

What makes you think Envoyer is dead? Jeffrey sure doesn't run it, Taylor has obviously been busy working on other Laravel things - I'm sure he's devoting the time to where it is needed and decided Envoyer is not where the time is needed. You don't see a lot of people commenting here about it since frankly all we can do is guess.

If all you are looking for at the moment is simple CRUD, check out Voyager or some other "do it all" admin package, you can be up and running quick, aside from MAYBE some MS SQL specific weirdness if you run into any issues with it.

That being said, the reason CRUD with old procedural code comes easy is because that's what you are used to. Laravel really is the easiest framework to hit the ground running, but there is still a learning curve. Give it time. The extra time you give now will pay dividends shortly.

You must be running a way old version of Laravel.....wasn't "scan" dropped about the same time as annotations and then Laravel Collective has it in the annotations package since then? So, yeah - Snappy is correct in that it does exist in Laravel per se.

....and you just made it easier for the uninitiated to find....great job! Should have DM'd him on Twitter or the like.

That being said, I'm sure he is already well aware this happens.

blueshift9 left a reply on 'Kint' Dd() Style Debug Tool • 11 months ago

Yeah, I believe it was recently overhauled as well. At least with the previous version sometimes it would have issues with massive objects but that was pretty rare and a tolerable tradeoff.

blueshift9 left a reply on Laravel.com's Accordion Sidebar • 11 months ago

I'm saying if you are going to bring up something like that, at least put it where it belongs and why anyone could possibly thing here is the correct place is beyond me.

User feedback is great - but it literally seems that sometimes every single minor change people make you will ALWAYS have people complaining.

blueshift9 left a reply on Laravel.com's Accordion Sidebar • 11 months ago

You're right, this is nowhere near the right place. Take it up with Taylor, not random people on Jeff's site.

Don't you also think Taylor or whoever does the official site thought about the ramifications before changing stuff like this and decided it would work better?

It's right in the menu to the left (or bottom, on mobile).

blueshift9 left a reply on Signature At The Bottom Of Every Post? • 1 year ago

We all come here for answers or to help others. Signatures are just a distraction. I've always like how Stack Exchange does it. If you just HAVE to do something like that, you can put it on your SE profile.

  • To be honest, it feels like a mixture of insult and torture. By now I'm properly stressed out, even shaken, each time I visit the site (it may have a part in it that my similar request has already been dismissed once). This shouldn't be happening. *

While I can see what you are asking - it's quite a reasonable request, actually - obviously Jeffrey made a decision to do it that way, and is just catering to the masses, which I also totally completely understand.

I can also understand if Jeffrey reads this, he's just going to throw it out anyway since your quote above comes off as a bit meldramatic, don't you think?

You've got to click on one of the suggestions. Definitely agree it's a little weird.

Jeffrey literally pushed an all new design yesterday. Plenty of people have already mentioned it, give him time.

I think OP got it mixed up with your Laravel Snippet podcast.

Nothing to be confused about seeing it done different ways - you'll find as you progress there's multiple ways to solve a problem.

blueshift9 left a reply on Error Laravel5_example • 1 year ago

I don't think that particular starter has anything to do with Laracasts...... don't know why you're using the term "your project".

22nd May, 2015

blueshift9 left a reply on Getting Started? • 2 years ago

Well, first of all Laracasts is a GREAT resource for using Laravel, but I don't get why you are bitching here. Laracasts didn't create Laravel, so frankly your criticisms need to be directing toward the right place. Honestly, if you'd have followed the videos here, I can guarantee that as long as you were comprehending the videos, you should have little trouble. If you get stuck, post your EXACT issue and we can help you through it. You will also get more help if you aren't "ranty" about it.

Also, if downloading a few things to get started with a new framework upsets you, you probably shouldn't be bothering even learning anything like Laravel as any technological framework will require some effort to solve issues.

That being said, honestly, you probably should not have went the WAMP way. Homestead isn't perfect on Windows, but it's honestly the best way to get started on Windows. Good luck!
