I just finished editing an article named "Start unit test code coverage by Jacoco" (or something like that if I do not remember correctly), but when I tried to submit it, I get an error on the web page, and I then lost the article.
I have tried to save the "Draft" all the time, now I do not even see the draft. I am not sure if you can help me to recover the draft.
Any help is appreciated, so I do not need to re-do the typing.
1. Yes, I did submit (with editing not to make public checked). But after clicking the submit button I then see an error page (the page shows a picture some bugs and some broken wires). I then clicked the back button on the web browser (I do not remember what the back button gave me, but it was something that was meaningless), when I refresh the page, I no longer see anything related to the article that I am working on.
2. I used the codeproject's submit wizard to edit the article. It tells me that the draft will be auto-saved. It does save automatic draft based on my previous experience, but not this time.
3. I do not remember if I have previously pending articles.
I know we get some absolute rubbish in there, but several seem to get closed down for no real good reason ... e.g. Path trough command?[^]
I worked out what he meant, clearly SA did too... although I never did get to see what he posted. Only 2 people quoted as deeming it unsuitable ... up to 5 maybe??
the list of reporters is another thing, if the reports get counted in different cathegories only the one with the biggest number of "votes" gets listed. I think the weight of the reporters (based on rep) has to do something as well, but not sure about it.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
The question has got 3 reports, and 2 of the people who reported it chose "Unclear or Incomplete", and the third one chose another option, so that's why it just shows two people.
The number of reports used to be 5 but this was changed to 3 when we got a spam wave. We still get spam, but less spam than during that wave, and just 3 reports seems a bit few so I'd go for 4 reports.

It seems a bit low getting only 10 points for publishing a tip and trick. It will be better if we got lets say 25 points. It still requires enough work, not as much as an article, still more 10 for sure.

So. What are you going to do with the reputation points?
If you're aiming to be get a platinum rank it might be an easier and faster way to just publish good articles/tricks/tips instead of just lots of them. And the privileges for platinum authors should be for members that write good content. Quality over quantity.
Not meaning any offense, but: How does it matter then?
Considering the efforts: As far as I can tell a great article seems to be a lot more work than a Tip/Trick...
The other side of the coin is that many are now publishing something as an article which is a Tip at most.
You say, I should mind my business when it comes to writing? Well, I'm writing an opinion of when it comes to reading. The worth of a good article exceeds the worth of a good tip/trick by far. But that really depends on the article. And if the reputation points are something to encourage writing something I'd rather see more good articles instead of Tips/Tricks.
I've changed my email today and now I waiting for the confirmation email (I've a notification telling me, that I have to do this) since a few hours.
Is it sent out with the daily newsletter mail job or any other "asynchronous" way that it is taking so long?
