I take it there's a whole bunch of enhancement ideas etc in the to-do list, so I was wondering, have you considered opening some of them as open source development projects?
What I'm thinking of is that if there are specific, isolated things to be designed, coded and so on, this kind of task could be opened on the site and (possibly selected) members could join it to create the functionality.
Don't know, but I would guess that there would be interest in this kind of collaboration.
One possibility is that the end result could also be an article stating the problem, discussions about the implementation and of course the result code.
Now that is a good idea. But this would require all of the code to be open - you can't just make a bit of it open and not the rest.
I think there were some people who were allowed to make changes already (Mike Dunn or Paul Watson come to mind, as they had the site builder CP icon next to their name). This could also be a first step: promote some good willing followers to site editors (again).

Wouldn't it be a good idea to have prominent links to the Indian and Chinese forum directly from the home page? As it is, the links are buried in the community menu, and only in English (instead of Chinese / Hindi / Tamil / whatever)
Finding these links is probably like trying to change your phone's menus back to English after accidentally setting them to Korean.
A few weeks ago I thought I bookmarked an article, but I couldn't find it back in my bookmarks. Eventually I found the article back through google. Bookmarked it again, and still couldn't find it though the bookmarks. So I take a closer look, turns out the article was a tip and not an article. I had totally missed that (though I don't care if it's an article or tip). After looking even closer trying to find the bookmark I found the link to the tip and tricks bookmarks, that was not very obvious I have to say. Maybe for power users the difference in type of bookmark can be useful, but for the average joe like me it's quite confusing and wasteful of my time trying to find something back I thought I had bookmarked.
Just for reference, this was the tip (when you land there from Google, it's not quite apparent that this is a tip either):
I have a doubt about my reputation. Iam posted answer for two question in codeproject today. but i did'nt get any reputation for this. why? actually iam expected 20 points. Anyone can explain this why? Please provide detailed explanation?
One of biggest dream in my life is MVP in c++ of Code project. so i worked hardly for that. So i just little care about my reputation. That's why i asked sir. You are an experienced proffesional. iam a fresher. so any mistake from my side is my own fault. So give me a better feedback sir.
CP doesn't award MVPs in individual disciplines. If that's what you are after, then you are aiming at the Microsoft MVP awards. CPs awards are based on helping out in the forums and with writing articles.

It could be nice to be able to add a non-english(may author's first language) version of an article from its author. I mean an english version must be, and a non-english version could be. This may expand the domain of codeproject.
As non-english native speaker I can understand your point but, on the other hand, I think that would make it much more difficult to maintain from the view of content-accuracy or even spam.
In my opinion, that would drastically reduce the quality of the contents, because all other non-speakers of that language would not be able to make improvements or corrections, to give opinions or even reporting the abuse of the rules.

Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
First I thought OP had made a good point with his proposal, but in your comment you raised a couple of good points that made me change my mind. Going that way would open up a can of worms figuratively speaking.

I've noticed that I haven't gotten any rep points for posting QA solutions (like it never happened )... with all of this rep point mess, I'm not sure if it's the same problem or not, just figured I'd reported as a bug.
I'm also noticing I have no life posting to CP at 11PM at night on a Saturday...
 I should say working at all, you do seem to get the points when someone upvotes your solution or it gets accepted, just not when you initially post it.
I've just uploaded some new code (speaking of 11pm on a Saturday night...) that has fixed the final few rep issues the error logs have been showing (and the error count is still at 0) so if you are still not seeing rep points accumulating then please let me know.
Just because you don't get the points doesn't mean you have not helped someone who is probably at their wit's end trying to get something to work. Focus on that.
...just thought I'd report it because I noticed it this last week and it's still happening. Last solution posted to QA was at about 40mins ago. I switched over to the C++ forum now and posted a solution there, I didn't see those points either. It doesn't show up on the points history as ever happening.
following on from Alberts post yesterday, I have to confirm I have had this problem too (please this isn't a moan about rep points), since you announced there was a issue around the reputation points. because I use the rep history to navigate to previously answered questions.

I want to Know -
Are upgrades of Codeproject have been completed?
What about lost reputation points?
In my case there is also another problem when I answer any question in QA I did not get any authority points(not getting these points from 23 Nov) and also it does not comes in my Reputation History.
I dont know whats happening?
Dave, I have also noticed that I don't venture into the forums as much because of the new collapsed navigation menu. Your suggestion might solve that, but I would rather be able to see the whole menu.
I actually just came across this CP page[^]. Forget about the page content and look at the navigation bar. It really is very long and I can see why they decided not to display all of it, but I think I would like to have the option - perhaps in the bar where you set up the other forum options (Profile popups, Spacing, etc.).
