I've written an FAQ on plagiarism to help authors understand what is plagiarism, as well as help members identify it. It is here: CodeProject Plagiarism FAQ[^]
If you find an article that is plagiarized you can either submit a report on the article itself, marking it as "Plagiarized," or you can report it in the Spam and Abuse Watch[^] forum with your evidence and a link to the members account, or you can email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org if you suspect plagiarism or have further plagiarism questions or concerns.
This forum is for any and all questions for Code Project Article Writing:
Have a question about writing an article?
Having trouble posting?
Blog aggregation not working?
Not sure about your article topic?
Is your article still pending?
Is there a crazy formatting problem in your article?
Not sure how to update your article?
Having problems with the submission wizard?
Need help making a change to an existing article?
As a basic overview CodeProject articles have a certain layout to follow, so that users can learn the most from them. Each article attempts to answer the following questions: What problem does this solution solve? How does this help someone else? How does the code actually work? What is going on inside the code snippets?
Here is a submission from a first time author who did a terrific job, just to give you a basic overview of what a beginner article might look like: Avoiding InvokeRequired[^]
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.
Seems like both. I had to update my article 3 times before it showed. The site was not very responsive in other areas. For example when I went to look at comments. It is probably just my PC, it is pretty old.
Just out of interest, over what time period, roughly, did you update the article those 3 times? The cache expiration is what it is, and so editing multiple times won't speed things up. However, if you had time to edit 3 times then either you're way more efficient than I am, or our cache expiration is way too long to be sensible.
I have a draft version of an article and I don't want to preserve that draft. I want it so that the next time I click "Update Article", it gives me the most recent published version, not the draft. Yet clicking "Revert to last published version", while it does give me back the published version on the main page, doesn't seem to work when I opt to update again--then it gives me the draft version that I don't want. How do I discard the draft version so that the next update gives me the published version?!
PS. I also posted this question as a "regular" question and on the "Bugs and Suggestions" forum. I need an answer ASAP, as my ability to further edit the article in question depends on it!
"All the resources in your group should share the same lifecycle. You deploy, update, and delete them together. If one resource, such as a database server, needs to exist on a different deployment cycle it should be in another resource group"
