2 – Specific. The more details you can provide, the better. Heck—you can attach files to ideas or a reference link to show us what you want!

  1. Sign In button jumps left when Facebook button arrives!

    In my case [FireFox 33.1.1 on Win 7 64bit] the "Sign In" button jumps left when the slothful Facebook button finally appears. The timing places the Facebook button under my mouse pointer at exactly the same time as perform a mouse click -- hugely frustrating!

    I suggest you move the Facebook button to a position under or above the Sign In button.

      • Few more details for 3D printing

        The 3D printing should show the output design diameters for confirmation after uploading the STL file. Now there is an 3D image of the design and volume being calculated. I would like to see the volume units and general diameters for confirmation of my design. If I saw that my print dimensions match the ones on the site it would be very helpful. I would imagine that this would make things very clear and lower the ordering threshold from customers also.

        • LinkIt ONE updates

          LinkIt update requests:
          -Antennas for the LinkIt to be on the board (at least the GPS). The GPS is heavy.
          -Make it so that the SD card can be accessed at the same time the serial to computer is running.
          -Have an external power pins for powering the unit and charging the battery.
          -Move the microSD card away from the USB connection.

          • stop overcharging for shipping Fusion PCBs

            Please charge customers for the correct shipping weight instead of the maximum for PCBs of any given size. Most companies do this.

            For an example, Arduino (shield)-sized boards are only one third the size of the 10cm x 10cm board category that must be used to buy them, but they are only ONE THIRD of the size and weight. We have to pay (express) shipping for TRIPLE the weight of the actual order and this can be substantially more expensive.

            Please use the actual board size to compute the proper weight. Many other lower-cost PCB prototyping services do this, and…

            • "Service and Gifts" -> "Service" and "Gifts"

              Please split the category of your shop's website for "Service and Gifts" into two categories "Service" and "Gifts". These categories have nothing to do with each other, and it makes getting to Fusion services a little more difficult.

              I'm guessing that new people to the site and going to have trouble finding the PCB service ("Fusion") if they don't know that it's called "Fusion" and would not think to look in a "Gifts" category...

              thanks

              • Lotus version with a Picaxe chip

                The idea of combining the Grove system with an ATmega chip in the recent Lotus board is great. Working in the field of education, also using Picaxe chips along with a free flowcharting software (Logicator) we are dreaming of a same type of board with a 28x2 chip.

                • Please review shipping package box material being used.

                  My 1st ever order from Seeed for Sark110 Vector-Impedance Analyzer arrived via Postage Service but the packing box was badly crushed and some damage to Analyzer (that i had to repair) had occurred. The small size outer packing cardboard carton box was simply not strong enough for International Shipping.

                  • should a new customer enter an incorrect phone

                    should a new customer enter an incorrect phone number then updating the user profile does not fix the incorrect phone number that appears when the customer is asked to select the address that the parcel is to go to.

                    Excuse the lengthy sentence fragments.

                    This might cause people to re-enter the profile edit mode only to cancel an transaction that is well under way...
                    That transaction cancel-ation due to user editing incorect phone number in mid transaction can cause (did in my case) the session / transaction to kick the user out of the website into its home-routers/modems homepage...

                      • Optional 3.3V jumper for MCP2515 on CAN-BUS Shield

                        Just hate ruining a nicely designed and brand new board like this to use 3.3V on the MCP2515. I can understand the design as the Uno is based on 5V logic and is also a requirement for the MCP2551 but for added compatibility it would be nice to see in future revisions.

                          -Customer should receive no refund for the completed work
                          -Customers should be able to receive a store credit for work that is not complete yet.
                          -i.e. If customer pays for PCB + PCBA and cancels between PCB and PCBA, customer pays for PCB but not PCBA. Customer can make changes and then pay for a new order.

I found your site hard to navigate and find what i am looking for easily or even just to browse like an online store. On the other hand your competitors like SparkFun Pololu are really easy to navigate. I often find my self just browsing things on there store for hours. With this site i just don't feel like it give the feel to stay and "shop". I come in like i do when I go to radio shack retail…

                                  • Shield bot Design

                                    I just received my two shield bots that will be used in my classrooms, they are nicely made and and have a nice layout. My suggestion is with the tires. On both of my bots, the wheels are falling off. While the 3d printing is a neat feature, even with the splined axle they are not staying on. Everytime I pick one up and turn it to its side, one or more will fall off. I am not sure why you have the expansion cut in the hub, but I can not see a lot of customers escpecially using this…
