This forum is for any and all questions for Code Project Article Writing:
Have a question about writing an article?
Having trouble posting?
Blog aggregation not working?
Not sure about your article topic?
Is your article still pending?
Is there a crazy formatting problem in your article?
Not sure how to update your article?
Having problems with the submission wizard?
Need help making a change to an existing article?
As a basic overview CodeProject articles have a certain layout to follow, so that users can learn the most from them. Each article attempts to answer the following questions: What problem does this solution solve? How does this help someone else? How does the code actually work? What is going on inside the code snippets?
Here is a submission from a first time author who did a terrific job, just to give you a basic overview of what a beginner article might look like: Avoiding InvokeRequired[^]
I just finished and submitted an article under the following category:
Articles » Third Party Products » Reviews on Third Party Products and Tools
and after 30 minutes i got an email from a stuff member saying:
Thanks very much for your contribution to CodeProject. However, your article '' in the Reviews on Third Party Products and Tools section at
has been deleted because it does not quite match our submission guidelines. Unfortunately this feels a bit more like a review of features rather than a review of someone who solved a problem using a particular product.
Yes of course it is a review can't they see the listed category !!!...
And yes of course the reviewed features are there to solve problems. that's why it is called e feature.
And the more ridiculous thing is that the article is not anymore available for editing.
Anyone else had the same issue ?
Any advice beside (Read the Manual)
On the one hand, it's nice that they aggregated all the relevant code to get a compileable, working version, something I've been meaning to do for awhile but haven't had time. On the other hand, it would have been nice to have been asked about it first.
Someone did something similar to this years ago for another one of my articles, but In that case they asked for permission first (though it may not have been required, I don't know); I happily said yes.
Why such advice when you already know the result of raising there? I want to be sure that it is not under category where it should not be considered advertisement. In a recent case, one article was missing a note and as a result,it was reported in SA watch,article got deleted and author was about to go.

The format of this blog[^] is quite messed up and there is no message board to tell it to the writer.
Would you mind to have a look?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
