There is some difference between this[^] light green and this[^] green.
First green will be displayed if your answer got more than 3 votes and the second will displayed if your answer accepted. So, don't confuse. Your answer might be accepted and later rejected by OP. Still you got 3 votes, so its showing light green.
I dream of a CodeProject Prime membership option, where members pay $100 per year for the privilege of seeing (or not seeing) rep points displayed; this includes access to a secret Prime rep-points forum.
One quirk of Prime membership is that a member can pay for multiple Prime memberships; the member doesn't get any additional benefits, but each Prime membership comes with a bonus 1,000 rep points.
In addition, Prime members will have the distinctive Prime mickey-mouse ears displayed above their member icon.
You may interpret my post as a "complaint," and as an indication I am not "over something," and as having something do with "vanity smears." Of course, I have no control over your interpretation, deo gratia.
But the interpretation you create sounds to me like your own psychodrama related to your own experience, not mine. If you've had a bad time lately with rep, I'm sorry.
The "vanity" thing was your invention.
My question was a simple question about if voting on Lounge posts is 'forever.' And, it was phrased in a way meant to be humorously and paradoxically self-referential: there is a wealth of connotations ... literary and otherwise ... to the term 'false modesty.' And to imply I would not ask if my 'virtues' would, like my 'sins,' persist forever because of "false modesty" is a form of a certain type of rhetorical jest, a reductio ad absurdum.
In the post that was down-voted I said what I meant, and I am perfectly comfortable living with the consequences: with the caveat that, like any other person in CP, if I observed what might be a pattern of negative down-voting for some personal reason ... some vendetta ... I'd bring that up here.
The only thing in this that, at all, disappointed me was the confirmation that putting content in the Lounge that attempts to improve CP by advocating using its current structure as it is intended to be used ... with the assumption the OP would actually be helped with a technical problem thereby ... is a waste of time.

I have noticed, that articles from my blog were not submitted to CodeProject about 5 days.
So I recreated the 'Feed' again.
The new feed was created and it tried to poll the blog, but I always get the following message:
Your blog has been successfully submitted but no Technical Blog entries were consumed.
My articles, as always, contain the required anchor tag. It always work, but somehow it stopped to work for me. So now, I am not able to submit articles from my blog.
