Writing a good article can be hard, but it is rewarding. First of all, take a look at articles by the likes of Sacha Barber[^], Marc Clifton[^] or Nish Sivakumar[^] to see examples of what good articles look like. Notice that they are all a good length, and that they explain what the problem is, show relevant parts of the code to show how they solved it and they explain their thinking as well. These authors don't just dump code and walk away. They explain things.
Having understandable English is important, as well, so the use of text speak is out, proper capitalisation and punctuation needs to be present. The good news is that there are people who will be willing to help you with your article. When you have written it, don't publish it. Instead, keep it at composing status and approach Sean Ewington (have a look on this forum for his posts, and click the email link on any of them to email him directly). Ask him if a mentor can help with your article, don't forget to give him a link to the article in question. Sean will ask the mentors, who are all experienced authors, and they will try to help.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
How can I apply a border to my table, including it's cells? I've tried using border="1px" but that doesn't draw anything in the preview? Even, the toggle borders on the table is on. Is there any other way to achieve this, without using inlne styles?
Yes, it does, I have to insert a table in my article and i can't get the borders drawn!. The contents are quite long (enum values), so it is hard to recognize that content is of which row and might create confusion.
We actually have an official one. Please see below and let me know if you have any questions:
<table class="ArticleTable"> <thead> <tr> <td>Tables with borders. This cell a bolded and colorized border because of thead</td> <td>This cell in this row ALSO has a bolded and colorized border because of thead</td> </tr> </thead> <tr> <td>This cell in this row is not bolded and colorized</td> <td>Neither is this one</td> </tr> </table>
