Can we have a feature so that the user can add articles to his/her favorite list so that at a later time browsing the articles becomes easy? Or do we already have this functionality and I have no idea about it?

Yes, you can bookmark articles. There's a frame in an article at the right side of your page ("About article"). Into the frame, there's an image within a star and the text "Bookmark". Click on the image and the article is added to "My Bookmarks". I don't know why, but I don't see the image with the star now. I think this is a bug, but normally the image is shown.
In some cases, my signature will be longer then my message...
At the very bottom of each page, left hand side, in the footer in fine print is the name of the server you're currently on. Can you please try doing a Ctrl+F5 to force a full refresh, then if you don't see the bookmark image, take note of the server you're on and let me know.
CP's reputation system is quite well for which i often like to solve problems here.Nothing to say more about this wonderful point system,but i have a suggestion to add a feature with it.
Those who solve problems in question/answer section,an acceptance rate(answers that has been accepted) may be added beside their reputation points.So when a member(who make the question) see the solutions of his question,according to acceptance rate he can rely on someone's solution.It also be a pleasure for solver to have a good acceptance rate which makes him more confident to solve problems.
Suppose,a member has given solutions of 200 questions,75 of them are accepted.So the acceptance rate will be 37.5%.
I also think about that.One possible solution will be the rate of Upvoted answers,which can justify a solver's efficiency i think.Because people who upvote an answer is nearly acceptable to the problem according to their thinking.Isn't it?
Same situation; many of us really don't worry about the reputation system so we don't upvote every answer that we think is a good answer. Most of the time, I tend only to upvote answers that make me laugh.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
I see the logic in your idea, but my personal belief is that this will just cause the amount of sock puppet questions rise dramatically which then defeats the entire purpose of what you are suggesting.
Maybe having less points makes him break a little and take care of quality of the answers instead of quantity of the answers. It is obvious he is in Reputation Hunt.
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.
These days appear more-and-more spams, that are clearly not from human origin. But as I see, they are evolving. Today I have seen one with image and in the "quick answers" section as an answer. As I see, they are trying to find the weaknesses of the page, and they have found some. And these spams are growing in number really quickly.
- The html input white-listing should be reviewed
- The authentication cookie should expire if idle
- Introduction of a captcha on login
So for an extremely small number of abusive accounts we make life painful for everyone else?
Sorry, I don't believe in solutions that just make things painful. Spammers don't care if they have to go through a few hoops - they pay people to post this crap - but regular members do care if it's painful.
I am sure, they are automated. If you look carefully at the pattern over time, you will see it too. It is a progressive attack. The content itself does not matter, it is only there to make one believe, that it is posted by a person. I am sure, that the site is currently tested by a zombie network. I don't know what the purpose of it is - I suppose, finding an XSS leak.
Yes, the access to the site without those restrictions is making it really seamless. But it is among the few that did not introduce some sort of defense. I would not consider those as painful - maybe a little bit inconvenient. I, for myself, I am finding those spams more annoying than a capthca would be. There was a point yesterday when more than the half of the questions on the first page was spam. That was painful.
But, your site, your decision. Let's be confident, that locking out OPs will be enough.
