In one of the Bizarre Emails, Smrithi Vijayan informed me that my article
"Image Inpainting using Texture Inpainting " ( I dont know the link 'cause is no more) is deleted as I hosted the code elsewhere.
The mail: "has been deleted because it lacks any source code. CodeProject is for sharing of source code and is not just a shareware or file sharing site so we do require that all articles include source code."
In all my articles I have hosted the code in my domian. That simply means all my articles violate your TOC probably? Delete them all then!
And I am going to post 100s and 100s of article links where code is hosted at a different domain. Delete all of them.
And please let me understand your source code submission guidelines. Provide Code ( If appropriate)
And define 'appropriate' instead of leaving it that way to help people know more.
If you do not allow articles without code in codeproject than mention it.
An article is an article which offers a solution to a problem. I had given a simple algorithm which even I have not yet published in a paper! A code is for lamers who cant work hard to copy paste the codes in the article to make a working system.
And, please dont come bashing me here. I do not intend to run into any arguments.
"Code Project is for sharing source code". Thanks for letting me know this most hilarious quote! And also thanks for letting me know that "Algorithm section is also meant for Sharing Code" and also that "article must be also about code".
We can certainly remove your articles if you wish, though while we ask that a local copy of your source code be provided, we're also more than happy for you to provide a link to an offsite copy if that helps.
The reason that we ask that at least a local copy of your code is that, in our 12 years of experience in hosting and sharing code, we see an extremely high rate of broken links in offsite sources. In fact, at the time we implemented this policy we were seeing a 100% broken link rate.
CodeProject is an article and code hosting site. We're not a links site, but we also don't require exclusivity. If you wish to have your code exclusively on another site then that's certainly your choice. For us, though, the most important thing is ensuring that when a member reads an article there is always a download of that source code (even an old one) available to them.
Did any member inform me to upload a local copy of code or any such things? Have in my record I have ever not responded to any senior member or editor's message? Where I am supposed to load the file? Article's link is missing from author's panel :(
When you submit an article using our upload form for posting by editors you should pack everything (HTML, images, zips) into one package and submit that. http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/Submit.aspx[^] says "Write your article, gather your images and download files, and zip them all together in one file."
If you post using the submission wizard then the area to upload files is on the right of the editor, and is labelled "Upload files". Click the Add file button, choose your file, then hit "upload files".
Ok, I have figured that out. I searched it in Google and traced the actual URL and changed it. But do you think Deleted code should be deleted from Author's Control panel also? How am I suppose to incorporate the necessary changes?
Here is a plethora of resources on writing articles. Tips are similarly structured, but often smaller in scope, solving smaller, specific coding problems in a "tip" or "trick" fashion.
Please let me know if you have any questions or require clarifications and I would be happy to help.
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[^]
