I don't know what the TechEd keynote speaker has been telling you, Chris, however please consider the possibility you misunderstood it somehow. Testing, locating bugs and fixing them still earns you all kinds of points, don't let MS sales people tell you otherwise.
Luc Pattyn [Forum Guidelines][Why QA sucks][My Articles] I only read formatted code with indentation, so please use PRE tags for code snippets. I'm not participating in frackin' Q&A, so if you want my opinion, ask away in a real forum (or on my profile page).
And of course, someone will create, or at least claim to have created, an App that scams the system and artificially inflates your man-points. Of course, clicking on these Ads result in a drastic reduction in your man-points.
There is a link at the top of each programming forum "View unanswered questions in the ASP.NET forum".
This link states: Note that a question remains "unanswered" until the member who created the question explicitly marks an answer as a "good answer". This means that a question could appear on this list despite having a number of answer-type replies.
My question is, since it's already being tracked if a particular answer is marked good by Enquirer or not, do reputation system takes care of it as 'Answer Accepted'? Does the points of 'Answer Accepted' awarded to OP for it or just an up-vote points? Logically, based on the work-flow and to keep consistency, answer accepted points should be awarded. (if they are not!)
In Quick Answers a member receives points if their answer is marked accepted. The author of the question does not get points for this, however. But maybe they should.. We're not doing this in the forums at all. I'll add it to the TODO. Thanks for spotting this.
After inspecting the code, I think I know what happened.
You had a slow or bad connection to The Code Project which resulted in retries on the call to post the comment. The Code Project received and processed each request and sent emails. Fortunately we don't store duplicate comments. For some reason, your browser did not get the response from The Code Project, which resulted in the retry.
Maybe you caught Chris in the middle of an update for TechEd
I use dan g's fabulous ToDoList application a lot to keep track of almost everything I do that has to do with programming.
Because I use a lot of different computers for development, I often find myself in the situation where I have to install, reinstall or update the ToDoList application to be able to open my ToDoLists.
But I always have a HARD time locating dan's article here on CP, because no matter WHAT I write ("ToDoList", "ToDo List", "To-Do List", "To Do List" etc) in the search box, I NEVER get dan's article as a result of the search.
Does for me as well now, but it certainly didn't an hour ago when I had to install the program. Then I got 5 pages of replies, and his article was NOT among them. And it's not the first time I've had that problem with that exact article.
But I guess it's just random monday strangeness...
BTW: I have had the problem with other articles as well when searching for articles I KNOW is there using search words I KNOW is in that article...
