I was noticing many of my posts were not posted as "Answer". I was thinking the default behavior changed. Thought that was odd.
Now I think that it is actually when editing. It seems the edit modifies it (not sure about all forums. I will check this post to see after it is posted) to be "general" rather than the original (e.g. Answer in the programming forums).
Edit - Yep, I am seeing right now the Message type has moved the radio button to "General". Not sure why anyone would want their edited messages to change from the initial message type.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
But I came to know another bug from this if you can listen to my query.
The problem is I cannot see the reputation changes beyond page 13 now. For that reason only I could not check the reputation changes added for that acceptance of answer.
And yesterday when I got a comment on that answer, I thought that OP has accepted the answer yesterday and put some relevant comment accordingly.
This happened, as I had forgot that the answer was accepted before and unfortunately when I check on recent reputation changes, I could not find it in any of the pages.
So, I assumed that my points were not added.
What I am trying to say that, if we can be notified (in mail) of the answer acceptance actions (which are not being done currently), then I would have a proof of that.
Due to lack of this, I posted this as a bug. Sorry for this. I also lost so many points due to this...I am really worried...
The double forums (private/public) on updated articles is a bit confusing. My recommendation is that you put them in tabs so that you do not have to scroll past one to see the other, and so it is more clear that each forum serves a different purpose (the descriptive text is too long to quickly realize each forum is different).
I've written a long comment that has been truncated.
When I've tried to modify it after seeing it was not the right thing, I've got the same result.
I can't modify that comment. It is the first time I can see a subset of pages in that thread. Don't know if this can have something to do with it...
FOUND WHAT IT IS:
mmmm... I've seen that the problem just happens after I've written "n<MAX ...." all from the n has disappeared...
PS: I've noticed that in here (writting this post) the < sign has broken it too... the difference is that here the only "bug" is that it is not getting represented in the post, but when I edited this post the content was there, but in the Q&A the content is also lost.
I notice that on the Cast your vote section, Best C# article of June 2012 list instead of Best C# article of July 2012. We already have June winners in July and I think it's listed by mistake and needs an update.
While this video does not appear under "Videos" in the profile tab, it is part of videos on The Code Project. If you are interested in hosting a video on a coding solution on Code Project, email us at submit [at] codeproject.com.
I imagine that's at the top of each video article. It seems to me the purpose of putting "sumbit [at] codeproject.com" is so crawlers won't pick up that email address and spam you. Very clever indeed, except...
You have also set the HREF to be a mailto with the actual email address. I suspect the crawlers may be smart enough to pick up on that.
I suppose my suggestion is to either not bother with the "[at]", or remove the HREF. I'm sure that address has been picked up by every spammer on Earth already, though, so perhaps the former would be the more appropriate option. Either that, or create a submission form that emails you all on the server side (you can then require login and/or a captcha to avoid spamming).
Both the tips and the articles can have alternatives but I think that it's not always true that an alternative to an article is also an article.
Lately there has been many times that an alternative to an article is added which actually would fit to the tip category. However, if a tip is added, it cannot be binded to the article so it's not seen in alternative list.
So the suggestion is that when an alternative to an article is posted, the author could select if the alternative is also considered as an article or is it simply a tip. I believe that many small enhancements to the articles would fall the latter category.
When clicking the title of several of my post i get automatically redirected to completely different post.
My Technical Blog posts are converted to an article automatically by the Code Project.
I don't know how this occurs, I have only edited the section and tags of the blog post in the code project and published it.
When I am editing my article and upload documents they go in fine and the images work. However when I delete an old uploaded file and then put the new version by the same name in when I come back I see repeats. Its not effecting the article in any way because I redo all the links but I have a lot of images and repeats are becoming a pain and I am unable to clean up because there is some bug in your delete an uploaded file logic that is causing the file not to effectively be deleted and shows up in the following edit to the article.
I tried to replicate this situation and deleting old files and adding new ones instead worked fine for me.
If/when it happens next time for you, can you please let me know the steps that leads you to the problem?
Sorry for the delayed reply. I disturbed you twice thrice for that option couple of months back. Finally you have implemented that option recently & it's fine. In new workplace they blocked all mail sites but now I could see the notifications through this option.
I want to see all MVC related articles on particular section. Now I could get those by using our search but want to see those all at a place. So please create a section for that. And other possible categories jQuery, HTML5*, [Windows 8, WinRT & Metro], etc.,**
*I found only less articles there[^]

I would be careful having relations with other members here. People talk. Just saying...

Assuming that on a Forum you have set the reading mode (Layout) to "Thread View."
Let's say you are reading a long article like Mehdi Gholam's superb 'fastJSON' article[^].
Now, you are reading the comments on the article: you open one of the comments, and, you click to open the comments on the comments: shazam: you are now at the top of the page again.
Or, now: you've read all the comments on the comment you "expanded," and, now: you click "View All Threads" to return to regular Thread View: shazam: you are at the top of the page again.
Now, maybe this is really picky-picky, because the "End" key on my keyboard will get me back to to the bottom of the page again. And, that's only one measly keystroke !
But, there is bigger problem related to the same Thread View behavior on articles with multiple pages of comments: try this:
1. go to page #4 of the comments on Mehdi's article
2. expand one of the comments with several responses
3. okay, you are at the top of the page again, no big deal: just hit the "End" key, and you are looking at the expanded original comment.
And, now: the nub of the rub:
4. click the "View All Threads" to return to collapsed view:
You are now back at the top of the page, but when you go to the end of the page: you are no longer on page #4 of the comments, but on page #1 of the comments.
What's the problem ? imho: the perceptual continuity of the reading process is disrupted.
a. bias: I certainly would find it distracting to see the whole "set view" interface on every article, every Tip, etc.
b. Consider the behavior described in point #4, above, a bug, and fix it ? So: expanding the comment on an article will take you to the point in the article (at the bottom) where the expanded comments are, and collapsing the view will keep you on the same page of an article with multiple pages of comments.
c. Disable thread view outside of forums ?
