I suggest you read the comments to the OP before the question is closed.
At one point the OP ... responding to comments ... writes:
What are you talking about? this is my first program that I am trying to write. I've only been studying C# for a few weeks and as it is mid term I can't speak with anyone in my class for guidance. I was only asking for some advice there's no need to berate me for being new to this area of study, I'm sure you were a beginner at some stage.
Of course, one could take the position that it is the OP's responsibility that they waited until the mid-term to get started, and, further, that the question is of debatable appropriateness/value because it gives no evidence the OP has even started trying to write code.
But, since it's not quite Halloween yet in any corner of the globe, does the OP's whatever deserve being called a "horror" ?

A lot of people on code project make horrors for newbies not thinking they are new to Cp or even to programming.I have experienced something like that earlier and i had left Cp for months now also i am experiencing same
Pete, I really feel that this guy is more of a liability than an asset.
I get that there's a tendency to want to maintain quality here. To me, that's enshrined in the articles and tips. True that there are sometimes really dumb questions on QA. I'll often have a stab at getting the poster to improve the question and how, OG is especially good at this practice. I hope that I'm never perceived as rude, although (true Brit as I am) I am direct. SA is frequently rude and aggressive and, worse, he often doesn't fully read the question. He berated me recently for pointing out a C++ error in a posting that had both VB and C++ ridiculing me for using C syntax in a VB post.
A better home for him, IMO, is SO where the quality of the questions and answers is everything. There's no doubting his technical abilities, but his attitude sucks. CP is a much friendlier and more collaborative place than SO. I use both as a resource, but my "home" is here!
Life is like a s**t sandwich; the more bread you have, the less s**t you eat.
I think that every one should specify the reason for down voting the Answers of others, It should not be the case that anyone could come and just down vote others answers without being reasonable for it.
This has happened to me that i do not know for which reason my answer is being down voted and by whom(At least specify the reason.
So its a suggestion to have the reason to be specified compulsory by the person who is down voting the answers of other.
The issue here is that we then end up with the noise from "reasons I don't like your answer" outweighing the focus of the page, which is to get an answer to a question. Maybe someone downvotes your anwswer - but that doesn't mean others won't upvote it, or that the person posting the question themselves won't find your answer useful.
I understand your concern,but there should some way to get it on system. At least the person who posted the answer should be able to know that what is wrong with answer which is many times explained in comments but not all the time.
He will be always in dillema that what went wrong.
I also think like that simply downvoting not commenting anything whether is a mistake or error we can clear it next time,we can learn.If there is nothing like that is simply spam making CP a difficult environment for teaching and learning programing which affects all of us
I was on stack overflow for some uploadify help, and stumbled upon job or career postings. So I applied for one just as a test, and stack overflow said I was declined because I could not prove I was a programmer.
I'm really surprised that Code Project doesn't have a programmer for hire section for small code jobs, thus the name Code Project.
I thought that forum was for swindling people into working on our projects.
Just kidding but sort of truthful!
I think alot of us could use some extra cash, and a single source site like Code Project in which verification of skills and competence merged with job listings would be a smooth transaction for all parties, unless my math is wrong with total level of competence or all members.
In Quick Answers, there are some tags around such as NoEffort, IAmLazy, GimmeCode ... In my opinion, tags should be objective and indicate what the question is about, and votes are to indicate the quality of the question, so these tags are useless and should be removed.
What do you think?
The quick red ProgramFOX jumps right over the Lazy<Dog>.
The navigation menu on the left is fully expanded and I guess I'm supposed to scroll down to the bottom of it. But as there are only a few messages, everytime I scroll down, some script or whatever always scrolls back up (or at least tries to do so while occasionaly just breaking the page layout) as it thinks there aren't any messages down there to display.

First time around was about a week or two ago. I've written an article (in firefox), and hit the submit button, a popup appeared asking if i'm sure i want to leave the page, and I got the "pending" icon on the article. Nothing happened for a couple of days, and resubmitting through firefox did nothing. Eventually, I tried it through IE (I know ... ), and it was approved.
This time around, I was working on IE, and the the editor crashed twice while writing the article. When trying to save, I got an error message, but going back into the article shows me the updated data.
I'm afraid I didn't take a screenshot, but it was a black page with some cute graphics, saying there was an error, and pointing to what it guessed was the issues (something about the state, and a very long string).
I've finished the article, hit submit, and depending on the browser i'm on, I will see the "pending" icon on the article, and a message saying my article is ready for a community review, and whether I want to view it or edit it.
I'm not quite sure the update was actually submitted, and there is no simple way to check it as far as I'm aware...
Anybody else experienced this issues, or have some suggestions about how to check if my article was actually sent for publishing or not?
A public/private queue of articles waiting to be processed ? Some less cryptic message ? what about the popup asking if i'm sure i want to navigate away upon submission? anyone you can email and ask this questions?
Cheers, and thanks in advanced.
