I would like to join the contest, but I don't want my idea/app description to be "borrowed." Can I be assured that nobody else (besides the project administrators) will see it? IOW, I don't want the world at large/other developers to see it. .
Whilst working with (and updating) an article I have stumbled into a potential issue with licensing. The article code clearly states the source of the code for several of the methods and if you go to that source then there's a licence statement that may possibly give rise to some issues.
I didn't want to identify the article directly, in the public domain, but I could not work out how to report it privately (e.g. private message), so here it is. Let me know how to proceeed, private message or reply to this thread or an article comment.
This article is fascinating and I find myself wanting more. Would you be willing to add some info? 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? What problems did you encounter along the way and what did you learn?
If you have any questions about this please let me know. I look forward to getting your updated article live on the site.
I am the first time to write article in this site, I am so confused about that the programmers who review my tip said I should add a link to the tool that I use for the convenience of understanding for the readers, but after I add, the webmaster delete my tip for the reason of too many links, I am so confused, what should I do? please tell me, I will not be confused when I write the next article in this site.
In this specific case if you're writing on a third party component you merely need to make sure it is in that section (I have moved it for you). You can see our full set of rules for this section here: http://www.codeproject.com/info/submit.aspx[^]
Can we delete a draft? There is a garbage can icon but I was afraid to try to click on it. I couldn't be sure if it deletes the whole article or only the draft.
Links are different, but I want to be sure.
Published Article: Delete.aspx?aid=####
You can. But if you've never published that article before, that will indeed delete the whole article. If you have published the article and delete the draft, that draft will not be able to be recovered, but the article should still exist. There's a few barriers in front of this, though. "Are you sure you want to delete this draft? Y/N"
Hi, i create my article, has been aproved but i dont can see the images, for that reason i have update the article many times, but now i discover that do that cause that my article have to wait to revision.
some idea for what the images dont load? Primality Test[^]
I put the images back. Do you happen to have the HTML of the original article? Please email it to me so we can make sure the final version is perfect (I suspect a few images are missing in places on the current version).
Pending status means that an article is awaiting approval from the Code Project community. The vast majority of new articles on Code Project need a couple of tiny improvements because they do not sufficiently explain the code within the article.
I can see your post has been approved already. Typically you won't wait longer than 24-48 hours unless you're in the process of fixing up your article that requires some continued community feedback.
This week's newsletter mentions Kenneth Haugland's article: Finding prime numbers[^], which has won the monthly award for best article. I just came across this submission[^] which covers the same subject, although possibly not written quite as well. Should we accept the second one also or reject it on the grounds that it really does not offer anything new?
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
have you not asked who closed it for more information?
Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce, served in a Provençale manner with shallots and aubergines, garnished with truffle pate, brandy and a fried egg on top and Spam - Monty Python Spam Sketch
Apologies if there was any confusion or it seemed abrupt in any way. Each "Closed" message is accompanied by an offer to go back to your article and update it and comes from the submit address where you can respond for clarification or suggestions (that might be a bit unclear, we'll reconsider).
If this is regarding the article I believe it is, I'd be happy to work with you on getting it published. It may be more suited to a Tips & Tricks post, but we also have CodeProject Mentors who are lovely, wise, experienced authors who are willing to help get articles published if you're interested.
Does this mean it's ok to have a small notice @ the bottom of my article?
How about something even simpler? Why not, in your bio (which appears at the end of your articles) just include something tasteful like "I hope you enjoy my code. It's yours to use for free, but if you do wish to say thank you then a donation [link] is always appreciated."
You need to increase your rep. Post a few more articles, get a few more downloads and up-votes and you'll be good to go. 1000 points gets you live links in your bio (and I've just added a note to this on the rep listing page that will be visible in a day or two)
but I have reported two comments as they state things such as my article contains "no visible code"
There is no local version of the download. As we've said previously, having a local copy is important - even if it's an older version. Links to external sites break, or are blocked, or developers just move on, and so having only an external link means articles get orphaned from their code and become unusable.
