Yeah, it's really annoying, as I don´t like to see my posts that have nothing to do with programming (they even are written in non-english) published here. People complain about them, downvote them, and report them as if I was intentionally publishing it. I totally understand it, but don't like it.
The worst part is that I cannot even delete them. The systems says "article successfully deleted", but it's still there...
ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated !!!!

I sent you an email on Friday, but I'm starting to think it got lost in the ether. There's some blogspot issues I've been testing with another user. Would you be willing to try something out? Please fire me an email at sean[at]codeproject.com and we can get this sorted.
Is there a way, CodeProject can adopt it? In fact I have been suggesting this for many people and a good number of people have been benefited by the same. A few of them have raised suspicions because of the article update date. I think, it is our community responsibility to make the article conquer its due credits and the author needs to be recognized even if they are not active. Of late, I could see one article called 'BlakeSharp' and in my view, this can be one of the algorithms which could be piggybacked onto XCrypt itself.
If you are brought to a Lounge discussion from a link, the page navigation takes you to page 1 instead of, you know, the next page. To replicate, click the link below, then try to go to the previous page (e.g. to continue reading on a thread), and you should land at page 1.
I seem to be getting a fair number of "We have tried to add your answer 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry." when posting QA solutions, but if I check then it has posted successfully - there doesn't seem to be that many people on the site (42K, but I've seen more).
I'll try to check if it is any particular server - the last one was web02, but I hadn't checked for the preceeding 5 or so.

It's there now, and has not been answered. This means it is open for anyone to answer it. If you are referring to the unanswered questions in the Q&A forum, that does not include questions in the specific forums where you posted. We see those as unanswered as they are flagged as "New" from the last time we scanned the forums.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
1. Bug: the Minimum Score filter in the Articles section does not filter out articles with zero votes - an unknown rating shouldn't be treated as >= 3 stars.
2. Please add checkbox filters to allow hiding chapters and sections we are not interested in.
3. Please make the RSS link context-sensitive, so it can reflect filters you have selected.
For example, the www.codeproject.com/WebServices/ArticleRSS.aspx link
could be enhanced with querystring representing a filter like ArticleRSS.aspx?minScore=4&excludeChapters=7,12&excludeKB=ultrabooks,game
I have just had to unsubscribe from your article RSS because of excessive Ultrabooks "spam".. But I would love to be able to subscribe again if it can be a more targeted list!
It is probably just something that I'm missing, but I noticed this[^] member on top of the Daily Q&A list, but this member has only answered 2 questions in the last 24 hours and hasn't posted in the forums with much of anything either. Just seems strange.
Here is what happened on the first page (referenced first, above):
1) I failed to post with the usual message "...tried three times... server overworked"
2) After that, I found a missing work in the post added it and hit Submit again.
3) The result was two slightly different solution.
4) I edited older solution to say [Re-post due to the problem on server, to be removed — SA]
5) Then I deleted the older edited solution.
6) After next re-loading of the page, second solutions appeared to be deleted too.
I tried to add the same solution again, but each time it appeared deleted immediately.
That wasn't a glitch... Sorry Sergey.
I happened across that answer shortly after you posted it and noted two answers that looked identical from my view, so I killed the newer one thinking you had been bitten by the double submission thing. Our timing must have been such that the you saw the symptoms you have described above. I didn't notice then that both answers were gone, but did some time later when I happened across the unanswered question again.
Well, thank you for helping me. I saw some idea in your reply; and it helped me to post this answer finally (you can see it now ).
But it was a "magic" fix: I edited one of the deleted posts to a brand-new context, and only then I was able to post the real solution again. So, still, this is definitely some defect, if not a glitch. First, double posts still happen, and against my intent. Also, the "overworked" message is not always true: often, re-loading of page reveals that the post was actually submitted. There is no a way to see the difference from this message: in fact, a post could fail to submit or succeeded. And finally, the situation I described, which I reproduced after you killed my post (which would be fine as I could always restored it if you deleted it by mistake). It created near dead-end situation not related to your intervention anymore. That was a defect. And of course I did not get adequate error responses. In the past, I already reported the problem I described above in the sentence "Also, the overworked message is not always…", but that "auto-deleting" situation is new to me.
When I'm going through Quack Answers, I will read through the entire thread before going on to the next one. To facilitate this I must scroll back to the top to click prev/next. How hard would it be to have thise links at the bottom of the page?

I think it would be nice if this site contains some left and right padding to the content.
e.g. 10 px should be padding left and same on right, it will be nice while reading and posting questions and answers.
I wonder, is it possible to know if some member is still logged in or not. I ask this because , when I expect answer or comment from somone it seems that he or she, has been disconected, logged out.
Perhaps there should be some kind of notification labbel that shall show, On or Off line status of member. Just like there is notification label when someone post new coment or message to me in upper right corner.
Perhaps when I click on the name of member or float with mouse pointer over, there shuld come up status message.
All the best,
