I've replied directly to the post and suggested a better approach is to create an alternative article that will be linked directly to your article. However, to answer the underlying question: as long as the author attributes the code to you, doesn't remove any of your copyright notices, and identifies that the code is under the CPOL, he's fine. That being said, it's your code and your article. You can assign the rights however you wish. However, if you ever feel that your code and/or article are being used in a way that goes against your wishes then we're happy to talk to those involved to get a resolution.
I may have posted something similar to this already, but I love Code Project's articles, i read several of them every day. I hate the website though. It looks like a bunch of random posts all grouped together, messy like. I know there is a system to it, but when I first look at the page it just looks like a jumbled mess, this thing where I have to expand a reply, and then expand another reply for one thread sucks. On my phone it really sucks. I like when a thread has its own page, or multiple pages, but that thread isn't mixed with another.
Not trying to be a troll or anything, I tried all the layouts. I just don't care for them. I'm glad Code Project took the time to provide different layouts, it's just not what I'm looking for. I think the 'preview' layout is probably the best, but still not it. uhm, again not trying to cause trouble, i am in no way affiliated with any other boards or site (except my own small personal site), but I was thinking of something like DaniWeb's. Not that they invented that style, it's just the only one I can reference right now. Thank you for the suggestions, I won't be talking about this anymore. -Cj
p.s. - Still love the articles, and will continue to read them every day. (the good ones anyway :P)
today i have just changed my password because i logged in from my friend's laptop .and after changing the password its still logged in my friend's laptop and he is using my account with no difficulties and teasing me :P P.
and i have unchecked the remember me option from my settings.
so it should be like this if i have changed my password,it should not let me allow to use any functionality of website until i logged in again.
I forgot my passowrd at home, so I requested a new temporary password (Forgot pwd. link) that was sent to my email. Logged in, works. Now at work I open Chrome, navigate to CodeProject site and my login still valid with old password (Cookie). I can download too. Shouldn't that be impossible ?
If it's just a cookie that says "MemberID=555;LoggedIn=True", that seems less than ideal.
Shouldn't the cookie contain some encrypted info so each request can be authenticated? For example: "MemberID=555;EncryptedMemberID=S435lL53G".
Each request, the server would compare the cookie's encrypted member ID with the encrypted member ID stored in a database. When the password is changed, that database encrypted member ID would be changed, and any subsequent request would fail as unauthenticated.
In reference to this Tip/Trick [^], which I have responded to at length explaining (I hope) my vote of #1.
I "agonized" over this Tip/Trick, considering whether to report it as inaccurate, and/or down-vote and/or respond to it. It's obvious to me it should never had "made it through" to be posted in the first place, but I felt hesitant to be the grinch that down-voted it, the only respondent to date.
So, I down-vote, and write a long response, and suggest a resource for the poster to use to reach a better understanding (partly out of guilt).
The question is: as I so often experience in other areas of CP (as on the Lounge when technical gems emerge ... that should imho go on an appropriate forum ..., and are washed away, in the flood-tides of on-going debate, rant, and discussions): what long-term value does my down-vote, or response have on CP ?
Did I just waste my time taking fifteen minutes to write a detailed response that no one will ever see again, and the OP may well never read because they will be either pissed-off, or in damage-control-mode, because of my down-vote ? Well, who knows how the OP may respond.
I'm thinking I should shift to writing articles, tutorials, etc. But, there is now such a glut of mediocre-to-abominable tutorials on CP, that I hardly see the point, since the "great tutorials" that are present, are diluted by being surrounded by crap.
My heuristic in reading tutorials on CP is simple: if they are written by one of the fifteen or so "saints" I follow on CP, reading their every word, I read; if not, I may take a quick peek.
the "great tutorials" that are present, are diluted by being surrounded by crap
Should the great tutorials not already stand out due to their ranking or popularity ? ( While writing that, I realize that an article must first be voted for before having a good average rate, and that until that, it is indeed diluted in the mass).
I think words like 'destiny' are a way of trying to find order where none exists. - Christian Graus
Do not feed the troll ! - Common proverb
Should the great tutorials not already stand out due to their ranking or popularity ?
That's a good point, and "over time," I would hope that would be true.
CP does provide, in its search facility, the ability to filter by rating level, but, imho, that is limited in value by the fact that an article with one vote of #5 will have a rating of #5 ! Verify that yourself, if you wish, by executing a search like this: [^], and taking a look at a few articles.
Now, what the CP search engine does when your primary search criterion is set to "Relevance" (the search shown above is filtered by "Date Created Descending") is unknown to me (to my knowledge the "algorithms" or "heuristics" are not publicly disclosed); for all I know, it may take into account not only rating, but number of votes, number of times the article has been bookmarked, and/or number of downloads, etc.
In any case, I have no "complaint" whatsoever about the way CP is right now, and I'm happy to be one of nine-million Each of us has to figure out what values and principles guide our behavior on CP: if I have some ambiguity, some cognitive dissonance, within myself: I have to work that out, but feedback from others ... really helps.
