A few weeks ago I thought I bookmarked an article, but I couldn't find it back in my bookmarks. Eventually I found the article back through google. Bookmarked it again, and still couldn't find it though the bookmarks. So I take a closer look, turns out the article was a tip and not an article. I had totally missed that (though I don't care if it's an article or tip). After looking even closer trying to find the bookmark I found the link to the tip and tricks bookmarks, that was not very obvious I have to say. Maybe for power users the difference in type of bookmark can be useful, but for the average joe like me it's quite confusing and wasteful of my time trying to find something back I thought I had bookmarked.
Just for reference, this was the tip (when you land there from Google, it's not quite apparent that this is a tip either):
I have a doubt about my reputation. Iam posted answer for two question in codeproject today. but i did'nt get any reputation for this. why? actually iam expected 20 points. Anyone can explain this why? Please provide detailed explanation?
One of biggest dream in my life is MVP in c++ of Code project. so i worked hardly for that. So i just little care about my reputation. That's why i asked sir. You are an experienced proffesional. iam a fresher. so any mistake from my side is my own fault. So give me a better feedback sir. Thanks sir
CP doesn't award MVPs in individual disciplines. If that's what you are after, then you are aiming at the Microsoft MVP awards. CPs awards are based on helping out in the forums and with writing articles.

It could be nice to be able to add a non-english(may author's first language) version of an article from its author. I mean an english version must be, and a non-english version could be. This may expand the domain of codeproject.
As non-english native speaker I can understand your point but, on the other hand, I think that would make it much more difficult to maintain from the view of content-accuracy or even spam.
In my opinion, that would drastically reduce the quality of the contents, because all other non-speakers of that language would not be able to make improvements or corrections, to give opinions or even reporting the abuse of the rules.

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 helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
First I thought OP had made a good point with his proposal, but in your comment you raised a couple of good points that made me change my mind. Going that way would open up a can of worms figuratively speaking.

I've noticed that I haven't gotten any rep points for posting QA solutions (like it never happened )... with all of this rep point mess, I'm not sure if it's the same problem or not, just figured I'd reported as a bug.
I'm also noticing I have no life posting to CP at 11PM at night on a Saturday...
 I should say working at all, you do seem to get the points when someone upvotes your solution or it gets accepted, just not when you initially post it.
I've just uploaded some new code (speaking of 11pm on a Saturday night...) that has fixed the final few rep issues the error logs have been showing (and the error count is still at 0) so if you are still not seeing rep points accumulating then please let me know.
Just because you don't get the points doesn't mean you have not helped someone who is probably at their wit's end trying to get something to work. Focus on that.
