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 email@example.com 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[^]
When I previewed the article I noticed there were a lot of spans in the blocks which I formatted as Swift code, but I couldn't get them out.
I was guessing that publishing the article might fix it, but it did not.
Can someone take a look and let me know if there is something I can do?
Don't post this here - if you got the code from an article, then there is a "Add a Comment or Question" button at the bottom of that article, which causes an email to be sent to the author. They are then alerted that you wish to speak to them.
Posting this here relies on them "dropping by" and realising it is for them.

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.
1) You've posted this in the wrong forum. This forum is for asking questions about writing and publishing an article on CodeProject. Questions about Silverlight belong in the Silverlight / WPF forum[^].
2) Silverlight is effectively a "dead" technology. Microsoft ceased working on it in 2013. Almost no browsers support it. And all support will cease in October 2021, which is now less than three years away.
3) If you want examples, use Google - or your preferred search engine - to find them.

I think there's really an issue with capturing the points since this weekend or something. I've checked the scenario you were describing and it seems like this is also true for forums post, votes, answers, comments etc..
Also sometimes, my reputation points turns to 441 from 56.2K on some refresh. I'm not sure if this has something to do with caching.
I have created a class which derives ultimately from MFC CObject. And I am including the DECLARE_DYNAMIC macro in its definition because I intend to use it with the RUNTIME_CLASS macro (for example when using CMultiDocTemplate).
However, I get a linker unresolved external error for the following 2 methods: GetRuntimeClass() and GetThisClass() which I had presumed my class would inherit from CObject.
The MFC documentation says that, all you need to do in order to use RUNTIME_CLASS macro is derive your class from CObject and declare DECLARE_DYNAMIC inside class definition, all of which i have done. Then why am I getting these unresolved external errors?
I'm thinking of writing articles. I have a doubt that what if the topic i write already exists in the article section. For example there might be a article for Login in Android. Is it ok if i write an article with same topic.
Of course it is. If your article presents a new way of doing it or is a better, more comprehensive version of a topic then there is no reason for you not to write it. If you're merely repeating the same content and not presenting anything new or improved, then ask yourself if it is going to be worth your time doing this.
