I assumed that , to prevent plagiarized article being published here, Moderators do extensive due diligence before approving the article. But For some reason, mine was approved in few minutes after informing Sean about image issue. Sean answered that he cannot fix the issues on pending status. So my question is, does it not make sense to put the article back in moderation queue after Sean fixed the bug?
I am not complaining, actually I was pleasantly surprised at fast approval and just wanted to make sure,there is no loophole for article to be published ,when image issue happens.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
Every few days, the site seems to forget my settings - the layout gets reset to "fixed", the forum display options are reset to the default, and the "email me" and "allow private email" options are re-selected.
Is there a bug lurking somewhere, or is it just me?

I find that if you visit one of the forums without being logged in it will randomise the forum display messages. When I then log-in it keeps these random settings rather than loading my saved ones. Perhaps this is what you are seeing?
... Do you hash message content and check the forum for hash matches?
Because if so, I think I just got a false match in the lounge.
Tried several times to post a lounge message:
I know what you mean, but I'd have thought it would shred it rather than accelerate it that much - like trying to push a water balloon out of the way by hitting it with a cricket bat! :laugh:
but every time I got a "already posted" message. Checked the moderation queue and the forum in a different tab several times, but it wouldn't post until I changed the final space to a newline. Then it went straight in.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Even though plagiarism often results to closing the account I'd suggest that when an article is closed because of plagiarism, all points earned from that article (writing, votes, downloads etc) would be also removed.
This way the 'benefit' would be removed but perhaps more importantly the remaining articles and posts (if any) would show correct amount of total points for the author.
My acount is closed as few of the member reported me as abusive. Please check my answers or article that will reveal I am not abusive to any one.
I request you to please review my answers and article if you feel that I m not abusive then please reopen my account.
Thanks and regards
Can we have something similar as with articles where people with the right amount of reputation can still see deleted messages / questions.
When I go to report someone I often want to verify that the person truly deserves it, but most of the time the message / question is gone.
As it is now, more than once we have to go on the judgement of the person posting the link in the spam forum.
Just occurred to me, this might already exists but I might not have the needed reputation, if that's the case just ignore this.
