You should have a Modify link in the upper right hand corner from your blog once it is approved. Then you should be able to move it. But if you want to let me know what section you want it I'd be happy to move it there for you as well
I have made the below article post to code project via my technical blog, but as it was taking more than 24 hours to be approved to publish in codeproject, I thought of deleting it and repost from my blog again, but seems this is not working, so can you do the necessary to make the below article of mine appear in codeproject as normal article?

I'm writing article about a C#/.NET port of MetaWidget project. I'm planning to embedd into it a YouTube screencast about usage of this tool. I already made some. Please tell me what You think about sharpness of video, sound etc.
Comments, constructive critisism are welcome
VIDEO temporary deleted, new version should be online soon
I think this is terrific. I'm very excited to hear of a .NET Metawidget port, and would be very keen to work with you to help you as much as you need.
That said, I have some concerns about your port as it stands. Looking at the YouTube video, the API of your port (the structure of the methods, the annotations etc) appear to differ significantly from the original version. I am worried this would cause confusion for people trying to 'evaluate Metawidget' as a brand, because if they evaluate it on one platform they will have a very different experience to another platform.
I'd be keen to either work with you to bring the API of the port in line, or I'd ask you not to call it 'Metawidget' or a 'port' as such. You could still call it a '.NET UI Generator' or something like that. A good example of a 'port' would be the Hibernate/NHibernate project, where the NHibernate API closely mirrors the original.
I think it would be good if i change the title of this project and make an article to let people know there are ways to make them more productive. And then i will consult with You and write entire port from scratch.
Thank you for being so understanding. I am sorry to be so 'lawyer-ish' about this. Good luck with writing your article.
If you'd still like to tackle a Metawidget .NET port (which would be fantastic), some key goals would be:
1. Close similarity to the original API
2. Interprobability of Inspectors (ie. have a .NET frontend generated from a Java back-end)
3. Base classes with shared functionality across .NET techologies (ie. WinForms and ASP.NET)
Of course, in porting Metawidget to a new platform you may encounter deficiencies in the API and I would love that feedback: a key goal of Metawidget is that it should adapt to whatever front-end/back-end architecture you use, so the API needs to be very accomodating.
Look forward to hearing from you,
P.S. Could you please re-do your YouTube video so that it doesn't call the project Metawidget?
P.P.S. How did you make that video? I really like it and should do something similar for the Java version.
And yes, we have Code Project Mentors to help people get articles ready to publish on Code Project (they don't do the writing for you, but make suggestions)
The best way to start is to go to our submission page and read our guidelines. Then do your best to follow them and post the article, and if it needs help after that I will ask one of our Mentors to see if they can help
