If your article has gone through the editor process, you can't modify the original text. What you need to do is send your updates through to the CP team (along with details of the article that they relate to), and they update it for you.

The user didn't even offer a reason. The message's body was a single character: "-"
So, Fredrik's article was depreciated for absolutely no reason. I don't think it's fair. It's an outright vandalism. But the damage has already been done. Does CP have a policy, to take action in such cases?
As soon as a couple (5?) of people click the "vote to remove message" button, the message and its associated vote get removed, restoring things to normal. The same twat downvoted my recent article, but he got what he deserved. And I reported him in the sug&bug forum.
You should have a Modify link in the upper right hand corner from your blog once it is approved. Then you should be able to move it. But if you want to let me know what section you want it I'd be happy to move it there for you as well
I have made the below article post to code project via my technical blog, but as it was taking more than 24 hours to be approved to publish in codeproject, I thought of deleting it and repost from my blog again, but seems this is not working, so can you do the necessary to make the below article of mine appear in codeproject as normal article?

I'm writing article about a C#/.NET port of MetaWidget project. I'm planning to embedd into it a YouTube screencast about usage of this tool. I already made some. Please tell me what You think about sharpness of video, sound etc.
Comments, constructive critisism are welcome
VIDEO temporary deleted, new version should be online soon
I think this is terrific. I'm very excited to hear of a .NET Metawidget port, and would be very keen to work with you to help you as much as you need.
That said, I have some concerns about your port as it stands. Looking at the YouTube video, the API of your port (the structure of the methods, the annotations etc) appear to differ significantly from the original version. I am worried this would cause confusion for people trying to 'evaluate Metawidget' as a brand, because if they evaluate it on one platform they will have a very different experience to another platform.
I'd be keen to either work with you to bring the API of the port in line, or I'd ask you not to call it 'Metawidget' or a 'port' as such. You could still call it a '.NET UI Generator' or something like that. A good example of a 'port' would be the Hibernate/NHibernate project, where the NHibernate API closely mirrors the original.
I think it would be good if i change the title of this project and make an article to let people know there are ways to make them more productive. And then i will consult with You and write entire port from scratch.
Thank you for being so understanding. I am sorry to be so 'lawyer-ish' about this. Good luck with writing your article.
If you'd still like to tackle a Metawidget .NET port (which would be fantastic), some key goals would be:
1. Close similarity to the original API
2. Interprobability of Inspectors (ie. have a .NET frontend generated from a Java back-end)
3. Base classes with shared functionality across .NET techologies (ie. WinForms and ASP.NET)
Of course, in porting Metawidget to a new platform you may encounter deficiencies in the API and I would love that feedback: a key goal of Metawidget is that it should adapt to whatever front-end/back-end architecture you use, so the API needs to be very accomodating.
Look forward to hearing from you,
P.S. Could you please re-do your YouTube video so that it doesn't call the project Metawidget?
P.P.S. How did you make that video? I really like it and should do something similar for the Java version.
And yes, we have Code Project Mentors to help people get articles ready to publish on Code Project (they don't do the writing for you, but make suggestions)
The best way to start is to go to our submission page and read our guidelines. Then do your best to follow them and post the article, and if it needs help after that I will ask one of our Mentors to see if they can help
So, if you click on the first (incorrect) link, the site shows this message:
<<Page Not Found
Unfortunately the page you requested was not found.
The following is the most likely location
Nicolas Dorier Updated: 10 Nov 2009>>
Although the message above shows that the article has been moved, I think this big bold "Page Not Found" message on the top may suggest to many of the readers that Nicolas' article has been *deleted*. Besides, all other links in that survey page point to the correct url. I think it would be fair to correct that link to the correct article url.
Now that your article has been edited by our editors, the only way to update it is to submit the updated source code and HTML to us. You can use the “Get Article’s HTML” from the link in the upper right hand corner of your article, and send both updated HTML and zipped sourced code to us at either my email address, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the process.
