As promised a while ago I've spent a bit of time working through the labyrinth that is our rep points system. We have an on-going issue whereby our rep point summary by rep type is out of sync with the raw data, meaning I need to resync these occasionally which results in a change in your reported rep points.
As I mentioned before, the raw data is accurate, but the rep point total you saw at the right of your name at the top of each was not accurate. It was, in some cases, high. The resyncs set your rep points to what they should be, and no points have been "lost". It's a correction, not a losing of points.
I know that this still sucks and a technical explanation of a bug doesn't really help. What I do hope will help, though, is a reworking of the way we sync points in an effort to ensure we stay synced all the time, while also ensuring a minimal load on the system.
I'll be keeping my eye on things, but for now we're back in sync and I can get cracking on those MVP certificates.
I find it passing strange to see a Lounge thread with first post removed, with, as I write this, now, 96 responses [^].
What's the point? Why not kill the whole thread if the top-level post is removed?
"So long as … social condemnation, which, in the face of civilization, artificially creates hells on earth, and complicates divine destiny, with human fatality … so long as three problems of the age: degradation of man by poverty; ruin of women by starvation; dwarfing of childhood by physical and spiritual night: are not solved: so long as social asphyxia shall be possible … so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, books like this cannot be useless." Victor Hugo, "Les Misérables," 1862
Is one or more servers down? I saw an article I was interested in reading in the past but failed to bookmark the article. So I just now tried searching with several search terms and 0 results each time.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for attending my query.
I am a very old member and it has been part of my routine to read daily news from CP forum.
I am receiving them back now.
One more small request, I am reading most of the articles through news feed of facebook now a days from the pages I like.
I have added code project app to my app list but do not see any news feed from code project in facebook.
I was wondering why there is no update coming from code project where as all other forums keep updating.
Code project can have online TFS support for the projects.
Like the CodePlex CodePoject can also provide support for the projects.
Doing so will give it's users a new features, increasing site's usability, users then can share there project more easily and user's all over the glob can work together to make solution more useful.
Well, those were good references.
And sorry that I did not mention one thing: that is,
We can have multiple source code control systems (SSCS) like you mentioned git etc...
And about the overhead, we can put responsibility of the previous (older) project to be added in SSCS on users, let them choose if they want to put there project in SSCS or not.
This suggestion would add a lot of cost and overhead to Code Project. One real problem would end up being that code would be updated in the source control system, but would not be updated in the article text. This would render the article pretty much useless.
The key thing here is that the focus of Code Project are the articles.

For the last 5 or 6 days (fuzzy since I've been away and back and on different computers), I am not able to login on (at least) my Vista computer using Firefox 17.0.1. The symptom is that when I show up on CP, it has me logged out (despite prior 'remember me' setting). When I attempt to login at the clicky symbol in the upper right hand corner, it accepts my login info, the popup disappears, screen blinks and I am back to the 'logged out' state. If I go to the CP login page (https://www.cp.com/script/Membership/LogOn.aspx) and login, it takes my info and gives me the same 'logged out' status on the main page.
I am currently using IE (not my browser of choice or habit) to login and submit this bug report. Attempting to login on firefox while I am logged in with IE gives me the hamsters (ha ha - that part might be working correctly).
Any attempt to login with firefox now gives me the hamsters (IE works fine). The hamsters report 'invalid viewstate', server is Web02.
I don't know if this is a different problem or not but I am a devotee of the Daily News messages. I don't always read them the same day, but I always read them. I note that I haven't received any Daily News messages since Dec 21.
I deleted my FireFox CP cookies and was able to login.
No new daily messages however; still none since Dec 21.
Glad you got the login fixed. Way-back-when, Firefox had lots of issues with cookies and clearing them was the only way to fix these issues. I haven't seen firefox issues for a long time, so it seems they have crept back in.
With regards to the Daily News, we took a hiatus on these during the break so that we could, well, have a break! They will be back for the New Year.
Using my IE8 (WinXP, SP3) I can log in when I hover the mouse over the "Sign in" link in the top right corner and fill out the pop-up login form. But if I click on the "Sign in" link and try to log in from the "Member Log-on" page, I get the hamster error just as on my phone.
Unfortunately I don't know how to get the "hover log in form" to stay open when I use my phone.
After reading the post from H.Brydon above, I tried clearing the cookies on my phone and using relaxed settings (accept all cookies, do not send "Do not track request to websites"), but it still fails.
