I have this in my Rep. history: "16 May 2012 12:20 PM Newsletter opt-in (undo) Participant MailoutType Feedback -50". The only thing I changed yesterday was checking the box that allowed private emails to my messages. As far as I can see, I'm opted in to all the newsletters. So what gives?
Now the article is ready to be published. But when I uncheck the box "Work in progress", the article still keeps in "Composing" state after publishing it, rather than changing to "Pending" state.
What is wrong here? I know that the article submission wizard is still beta. But how to solve this problem now?
I tried with Safari Web-Browser on Mac as well as with Opera and Chrome on Windows. So it doesn't seem to be a browser issue.
In this response[^], on the C# forum, I selected the paragraphs that appear preceded by numbers (one at a time), and chose "indent."
No error thrown, but no indenting in final result.
I wonder if auto-line-wrap somehow comes into play here ?
"Humans are amphibians ... half spirit and half animal ... as spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy, therefore, is undulation: the repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks.” C.S. Lewis
I posted a new article on 05.13.2012 and my score was about 19500. Yesterday my score was about 20300. When I deleted the article my score becomes about 16500. So I don't know where these thousands of points are gone.
Is this a bug?
Also, I am facing an issue with some tips I've never posted. When I delete them, they appear as deleted but when I refresh the page they still be there. I can't delete them from my tips tab.
Thanks for letting us know about this. We'll dig into your reputation to take a closer look.
As for the tips, it could be you are attempting to delete tips that are in composing status, which I don't believe you can do. Would you like me to delete them for you? Are you looking to delete these?

What you're seeing is an issue with caching of old data. We've had a long, long project of updating the rep points to reflect changes in rep policies (modified limits, new ways to score points etc) and as a bonus this recalc will fix an issue whereby removal of some points was not being reflected in overall scores.
As part of a quick fix we made it that certain events will trigger a resync of points, and so that's what would have happened with you. The underlying points were correct, but your published total was more than it should have been.
For most fora, which get a lot of traffic (C#, Lounge, etc.), I like the Show setting of "Last Week"; for others, which get less traffic (Algorithms, Hall of Shame, etc.), I'd prefer a longer time span (Last Month), but it seems that we have one setting for all fora, see if you can do something about that.
I'm not sure what that means either, but you can see there are no revisions on it and this one says it is in "Draft" mode.
However, it looks as if people can see my article because I've had over 600 views and a good number of downloads on the code.
Hope this helps track these issues down so we can fix it for others.
It looks like you've saved a draft of something you were working on, but not published it. Is the "new version of the currently published article" the one you wish to see live? (the article that is in "Draft" mode)
Thanks for looking into this. I noticed that the version info. changed again though I have done nothing. I'm just going to leave it in its current state until I understand that it needs to be changed.
Thanks again for the help.
