Just wanted to let you know that i came across an issue with the points for answering a questions when the the ajax post fails.
I was attempting to submit an answer to a question and i got the 'We tried 3 times but it failed' message. I tried a couple more times then went for lunch and tried a couple more. It finally posted but i noticed i received like 200 points for all the times it tried to submit the answer. I don't mind the extra points but i just thought i would bring the issue to your attention.
Don't comment your code - it was hard to write, it should be hard to read!
Earlier at the home page it displays Article/Blog/Tips needs approval. now I dont see those from the past 2-3 days. thought there isnt any article/blog. but not sure was it me or anyone having this issue in recent?
Is there any update on the system which restricts the view?
The status on this has definitely changed. Bob says I have over 500 points in the last 12 hours never mind the last 24 which is clearly ridiculous. However it's no longer making a dent in the Q&A 24 hour top list, so perhaps now that list at least is counting correctly?
OK Scratch that it's not a fix in progress but another bug I just bounced back up the board in one go from nowhere. It now lists 565 which is about what I estimate from the points table for the last 12 hours so it could just be an artifact of the algorithm. Best forget it until the main issue is fixed.

Every time I post a solution in Q&A I get the response: We have tried to add your answer 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry.. However, if I refresh the page, or load it from a different browser tab, the post appears to have been successful. If I use the question or comment link, it works fine.
Dear Code Project Team,
One thing which i feel might be a very good feature if included in the code project will be "User must be given a option to like or follow any post " so that in near future he wishes to refer that article he must not search it again or look for it any where else. In this case where ever user logs in on whatever location he will be having a quick access to his liked links or bookmarked links.
Ashish, you can already bookmark a post or article. If you look at the bottom of a post, there are a list of options - one of which is Bookmark. In an article, look to the right hand side. There's a section called About Article. Below the tags in this section there are three options - the first one is to bookmark the article.
To see your bookmarked items, hover the mouse over your name at the top of the page - the drop down shows an option called "My Bookmarks". If you go into that page, you can choose the different type of bookmark you want to look at.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
Whenever I click the "Submit your solution!" button, it takes some seconds, till I see the message "We have tried to add your answer 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry.". I tried several times during the last hour...
Well actually I have the same problem, even though my solutions are correctly submitted.
And when I look at my reputation history I can see multiple lines corresponding to my answer and each time, points seem to be awarded and if I come back to the question page I can see my answer has been posted.....
error while casting a column name[^]
when I update this answer,
1. and submit it, it was posted as new answer solution 2
2. it was showing error posting answer (some lines above solution in red lines) as below We have tried to add your answer 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry.
so I re-click button to posting answer successfully and then I got 10 points 23 times = 230 point
may be I have click button 23 times but strange thing is entry in post as solution2 only not solution3,4...23,
In short for single solution I got 10 point 23 times
hope you understand what I say
so, please correct that and remove entries of 10 points which I got 23 times for single solution "error while casting a column name"
Same thing happened to me. I droped in here to post the same bug. I even have a screenshot too here[^]
