I understand that, however Chris seems to have OKed it, so please do bring it on.
IMO a disclaimer of some kind might be useful in your article to indeed avoid confusion; a judicious color scheme may finish it off.
It has been a long time since I didn't post anything to CodeProject, and I have been a bit out of touch with the site for some years. I am planning a new article but I would like to ask a few things first.
The first is about article submission dates[^]. Two years ago there was a problem (at least I understood it as a problem) in which the date you first saved your article (even if if wasn't published yet) was going the be stamped permanently as the date of first publication. This was a bit unfair, since if I was working on an article since January, but only decided to publish it now, at the time I wouldn't be able to join a monthly competition for the current month. I would like to know if the last improvements in the article submission process have changed anything about that.
The second question also regards the article submission form. If I am to add a second author to any of my articles, will he also be able to open and edit the article using the editor?
And the third and last question... If an article with multiple authors wins a monthly competition, must one author take all the prizes, or prizes can be sent to different addresses?
Well, I hope I am not asking too much!
Best wishes for all CodeProject supporters, authors, staff and members
A few of the team are on holidays this week so my apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I'll have to follow up on Q1 next week.
Q2: Co-authors can edit the article. That's why they are co-authors
Q3: Prizes are shared among all authors. Those who freely provide prizes often don't have the ability to split prizes or get hold of more than they have already committed to, so we have to leave this up to the authors of the article as to how they split the loot. However, if a prize pack contains multiple items then we can certainly arrange to split them between members for you.
I am sure Q2 seemed fairly obvious, I was thinking on the possibility that only of the authors would become responsible for sending/managing the article, as it happens in some journals/conferences. Glad to see it is not the case.
I am sorry about the bump; I never occurred to me it could have been a holiday week!
So I am currently writing a new article. I uploaded and inserted some images, but found out one of them was to big for CP standards. I cut of some of the edges and uploaded it again. However, when I insert it into my article I see the old picture within the bounds of the new picture. This makes for some weird effects.
Also it seems I can't add a picture after I've uploaded one. I click the 'Add' button, but nothing happens.
I tried inserting the modified image again (for approximately the fifth time) and it shows correctly now.
I'm afraid this might not be the right forum section, but I was wondering why my Windows Phone Crosswords article is not included in the current Mobile dev competition. Maybe I haven't tagged it correctly?
I have an idea to write a short 'thing' about my experience (as a beginner in most things - if not all!) of choosing a VCS. Only I can't work out what type of 'thing' it is, is it a tip or an article - it felt like a short blog item but I see that's for linking to external blogs rather than a CP hosted blog item.
I've created this article via the Wizard and added the tags but am struggling to find the right section, any chance you could have a quick look at it for me? I wanted to choose Application Lifecyle but can't, or at least there's no section of that category that fits...
It probably falls into the same class as my previous article, i.e. being more like a blog, but I don't have a blog...
Finally, wouldn't mind a mentor having a quick look over it if that's ok?
