I've just noticed the site adds some bogus newlines in C/C++ code snippets after the C++ styled comments. It looks horribly, especially if there are multiple lines of it, or if a line of code is followed by some short comment (e.g. to describe some structure members).
How do i know under what license https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/285/Transparent-group-box
is? But I suspect i will not get a reply from the author either since I can tell from the author's profile page, that he has not logged into CodeProject since this article was posted about 17 years ago.
it dates back to the point in time where CodeProject went through a "re-birth" - if you look at the dates, this article was posted 5 months before the author's profile was created.
If you go and look at the first thirty "questions," you'll see that most of them are heavily down-voted, many falling into the category of requests-for-code. I haven't the stamina (or eyesight) to examine a larger sample.
If this is the current state of the C# forum, why can't we re-route these questionable questions to QA, where, hopefully, they'll get soon removed, or better yet, kill them pronto ?
I can't see the value of a C# forum full of OT posts, and the formulaic replies often made to them.
«When I consider my brief span of life, swallowed up in an eternity before and after, the little space I fill, and even can see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant, and which know me not, I am frightened, and am astonished at being here rather than there; for there is no reason why here rather than there, now rather than then.» Blaise Pascal
I don't think so; they still have a purpose. They provide a better "discussion" format than is possible (or at least easy to maintain) in QA which is a lot more "solution" orientated.
It only becomes a problem when students post their homework, or our ex-resident Help Vampire finds something new.
What it needs is better users ...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
