Fortunately, using the "trick" that ProgramFox disclosed here: [^], I was able to recover the post, and re-post it on a previous question by the same person: [^].
I do not object to QA posts being removed for cause in principle. In practice, I do think that at times QA posts are removed too quickly.
I do think an issue worth considering is: what if a post that is down-voted heavily has replies to it that are possibly technically valuable to other QA users in the future ?
Suggestion: once a post is removed, and someone who posted a solution clicks on the link to their "disappeared" solution: re-direct them to the hidden version link that ProgramFox showed how to access.

I am not sure about the deleted content but one of the answer is to this question : Convert excel to pdf using C# in asp.net[^] which leads to some site where you can get some code to implement this functionality.
I am not at all clear how this can be considered as Spam? Any specific reasons?

I haven't seen all the answers, but the (only) one I deleted there lead to a site which seems to belong to a SW manufacturer who sells a commercial library to solve the problem (and the code would've worked, but *only* if you used|bought the dinky 3rd party library).
I will never again mention that Dalek Dave was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel.
1. I've posted an article and I don't receive any points for it.
2. It's viewed more than 1000 times but nobody has voted for it. Maybe the viewers had no idea what the article is about, anyway I'm delighted with the average of 5
3. The download rate also seems wrong as my points due to download is 19 and in my article page it says it's downloaded 31 times. Maybe you don't count downloads from same user. I don't know.
I successfully tried the console example given here at Code Project to interact with my workspace by storing the single file. Next, I'll have a go at pushing a directory and making revisions after reading a bit more.
1) Is there a good overview anyone can recommend so I can get a picture of the concepts of git ? I assume the way of thinking might be different from the thoughts used with SourceSafe (CVS).
2) Is there a good GUI client (for Windows sadly) that might help speed up my process of becoming acquainted with the options ?
I hope Code Project will add some of this info as a link under hints in the WorkSpaces area.
One month ago I published an article about an open-source library I made.
For the first 2 weeks ratings swinged wildly but I got around 5000 views and around 150 downloads but then all traffic suddenly dropped from 500 views per day to 25 on average!
This doesn't look normal.
Please don't tell me it sucks, I'm pretty sure it doesn't 8-
all traffic suddenly dropped from 500 views per day to 25 on average
This doesn't look normal.
It is normal that you lose traffic after some days, because after some days, the article doesn't appear anymore on the homepage or on the first page of the "Latest Updates" section on the site. This means that you lose some traffic. And if some people share your article on social media, then it also won't be very visible anymore after some days. So, it's very normal that you lose some traffic after some days.

We enjoyed the possibility to include links in comments (<a href="...">...) until recent time, maybe even yesterday. (It's a good thing: referencing rules for asking questions and a lot more uses.) At this moment, posting of the question converts it to escaped HTML code. I did not try other HTML markup...
I was about to report it. I have tried to edit the comment to re-write the "<" and other key symbols, but it brought nothing
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 helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
After my IE8 browser prompts with a security bar and I allow download, another message (red-ex) says that "download.aspx" can't be found on this server. This new "workspace" thing also has two flavors. One shows a "click here" the other no such work-around.
I find if there's no "click here" alternative, there's no possibility of accessing any code, download or otherwise ...

I was trying not to go there, but you kind of forced me . When I reported it, I could not believe it had not been reported before, but I checked about 10 pages back (I have my forums set to show 50 posts per page) and I found no posts about it.
