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.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
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 had the right to remain silent, but I didn't have the ability!"
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.).
Recently ,for my question somebody posted solution.I thought solution is good but not i asked for , hence I gave 3 out of 5 (single vote). Now he is complaining its down vote. Is it correct?Its down vote.
A 3 is neutral in the fact that it doesn't give negative or positive reputation points, but if a post has already got one vote of 5 and you give it a 3 then you are bringing the average down to 4, so effectively downgrading the 5. Similarly, if a post has a vote of 1 and you give it a 3 you are upping the average.
I think this is perfectly fine. In this case it is an answer in QA and if the OP felt it did not resolve the problem, the average should go down. In any case it should not hurt the member posting the answer. I would not object if I answered a question and received a 3-vote.
Had it been an article, you could argue that it hurts the author to have the average rating lowered even if there is no change in points. I do wish Code Project would change the 3-vote on articles so you don't have to leave a comment. There are people who take offense to getting 3-vote as this thread shows.
Apparently this post[^] has been flagged as spam (at least) 36 times, but it's still there. Aren't they supposed to be removed after a certain number of reports? (The account was closed though, so it looks like it's working there.)
OK, gather round kids and I'll tell you a story...
Our reputation system grew quickly from a simple system that awarded points for posting articles to a system that was very fine grained. The initial code to award points was baked into the stored procedures that created articles, but as it grew we found we were mixing two patters: one which baked calls to the rep system into the sprocs, and one which used our modular code system that listened to "events" that occurred and would react appropriately.
When we moved our reputation system from a site-centric to network-centric system we, by necessity, had to pull out all the code in the sprocs and move them into message handlers (ie do it properly). We have 77 rep events and dozens of event handlers and we got a few of them cross-wired. However, since I had turned off ratings in the forums, this had masked the issue, because the rating and reporting systems were connected (again, another TODO: untangle them).
It was a straight out bug on our part, and it's the same bug I'm fixing, Friday night, bottle of red, to ensure points are awarded when you edit a Quick Answer question or answer.
But now, I have one more question. Regarding the 800+ points lost from people abusing the reporting feature, is there any way to overturn those?
They'll be back the next time a full recalculation is done. This may be done concurrent with the change, or might wait until more changes are queued up: The recalc takes a while to complete and often results in "where did my points go?!?!?!11eleventyone1" posts from people who see their total when the calc is only partially complete and panic.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
