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[^]
I don't want you guys to republish my article neither I will beg you re activate my account.
All I want is a copy of my article, I composed it all on your site with lot of time and effort, I don't have copy of it.
I've emailed you the HTML, though I had reservations about doing so. Please, read up on what plagiarism is so that you can rewrite your article and properly cite it if you plan to publish it elsewhere.
Thanks for sending my article. I read about plagiarism but it's not my intention to just publish an article here.
I searched on Internet and couldn't find any writeup describing these 2 FCM message types very well, I spent time to understand it first and then thought to sum up all info in article.
It's OK to close my article as per your description for plagiarism. But can I ask what's this?
"Your account at CodeProject has been reported as The member is being abusive or is a troll 10 times and is now deactivated."
This was my first article in 13 years in CodeProject, the article is deactivated, after that I haven't did any action on CodeProject and I just code this email.
Can I ask how I abused? by visiting CodeProject site too much? or by posting my first article in 13 years?
If you guys want me to not use your website just tell me straight, the new account I created to get back my article, I'll close this account too.
The question that I asked was simple, but it was a topic I wanted to know more about. The question that I asked: Is there an api that would indicate whether a program was running in interactive mode or batch mode. I'm of the old college where I worked on medium range computers in a mfg environment(BOM, INV, and related)* and there was a lot of questions asked just to get the job done. But in looking around this site, there was an indication that an answer was given to my question. But Sean Ewington, in his infinite wisdom, deleted it. And so, what was the answer? What a bite! I have asked questions in other internet places and received answers, whether they have been useful or dead ends. But I have kept going. But the actions of Sean Ewington are really un-execusable; even though he has keys to this kingdom. But, life must go on and I'll keep learning. Thank you, and hope you have a happy day. vbfingers.
* PC and/or Networks and etc were still in their very infancy, not yet in full development. (Kinda before Sean's time.)
Unfortunately I can no longer see the precise circumstances behind this. Did you have a link in the question? Was your question unanswered for over a week? If the former, it may have looked like spam. If the latter, we have a policy to remove unanswered questions older than seven days if they have been reported. The reasoning is that, after that amount of time, it is unlikely they will ever be answered.
But in looking around this site, there was an indication that an answer was given to my question. But Sean Ewington, in his infinite wisdom, deleted it. And so, what was the answer?
1) If an answer was deleted by sean the content won't bring you further. I am 99.8% sure it was something against site policies (spam, site driving or similars).
2) Check your email, it you don't have switched it off, you have got a copy of the answer in the email account you used to register here.
2b) If you have switched the option off, then you are partially guilty on not knowing what an answer was given to your question
2c) If you do have the email and the answer is against the policies of the site, then come back and apologize to sean, because he was just doing his job.
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.
When in the article editor there is an "Upload Files" control on the right side. Use the "Browse" button right of it to select the files on your PC to be uploaded or drag and drop them from the Explorer to the input field. Then click on "Upload Files".
Once uploaded they are listed above and can be referenced manually by inserting HTML image tags or by clicking on the icon with the yellow arrow.
