I'd love to say we hand colour everything by hand, but we don't. We have scripts that do that.
Our auto-language detection does need work, but the main problem was you had <...> in the code and it wasn't HTML encoded. Our scripts can partially deal with this, but sometimes they think you're adding special HTML and try and close open tags.
I... had... okay, you're right. Absolutely did not see that one while hand-encoding the stuff. I first thought I'd need to write that HTML file and started from the template, but eventually took a look at your submission "wizard" (form) and there was that WYSIWYG editor. Thanks for fixing it then.
That is the XML/HTML autocomplete thing jumping in. You have to use the < and > HTML character entities to prevent that. I still think that the XML/HTML autocomplete system should be turned OFF in code blocks.
Look at this page: Windows Runtime
Are you changing something or is it broken?
It had General and How-to sections. Now it only has Sponsored articles. And it looks like the most of recent related articles disappeared from this page.
Update: it looks like articles from this section can't be edited: look at this message
I can't edit my article either. For this one I got message that I have no permission to edit it.
And for my and for some other articles from this section I don't see revisions history.
Well, looks like it has been fixed today. I still wonder whether you did something about that. It would be nice to have few words in reply to such bugs. Just to be aware of what happend.
I'm wondering whether I should have another go at a d3js article, and if I do it would be nice to make the examples come alive. That would require the ability to add scripts to the page, like: <script src="http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js">
If it is so easy... could we add the section for industry/automation programming as well (we already spoke about a time ago)?
If you want I can send you a draft with a division in possible subcathegories.
Is the addition of article or tip/trick cathegory more laborious as the addition of a forum cathegory?
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 of all this seems not like a bad idea - But the CPOL says under artcile 3e the following rules about distributing an article:
The Articles discussing the Work published in any form by the author may not be distributed or republished without the Author's consent. The author retains copyright to any such Articles. You may use the Executable Files and Source Code pursuant to this License but you may not repost or republish or otherwise distribute or make available the Articles, without the prior written consent of the Author.
Most of the articles are published under the CPOL. Every author would have to give the permission for downloading his or her article which would cause a major chaos because you could get some of the articles for download and some not.
And I don't know if the other available licences even would allow you to download the article.
Since the sync problem between the different servers is still existing and the rep points for some members are still going wild - For Bobs sake let the hamsters first fix these bugs and do not bring up additional options where they can add other bugs!
...permanently shut off the friggin' notification bar at the top that's constantly reminding me that I can "Sign up for our free weekly Web Developer Newsletter."
If I click the close button, it closes, but it reappears a few minutes later.
It is true that I am not signed up for the newsletter, and I don't care to be either because web development is not interesting for me!

I just gave my approval for an article, and the system stated there are '3 Reports'. I think that should say something along the lines of 'X Approvals', as the word 'reports' may make people think they clicked the wrong thing.
It's not just counting approvals - the value includes all reports, positive and negative. It just indicates that your vote has been counted, without telling you how others have voted. I think the idea is that it doesn't affect your vote - you don't change your vote to "follow the herd" as might happen if it told you "1 approval, 4 'No way José'"
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I have to say this also caught me out when I first approved an updated article. I was super careful the next time and went to check the Latest Reputation Events to makes sure the two approvals showed the same activity.
My 2 cents: The text says Approve or report this article and the popup menu has a Publish section (with the approve menu item) and a Report section. Given that, I think most people would be surprised to be told they just added a report when they in fact selected the approve menu item.

So I noticed there was a warning message while browsing Insider news telling me I needed to confirm my email to post, so I did, got the email, clicked the link, got a confirmation page and then...the message is still there. Have a similar warning in this forum too. (Already tried the obvious, refresh, clear cache and refresh.)
EDIT: Seems to be gone now...either fixed or I was just impatient (the email came basically instantly, guess I figured my account's email status would update as quickly )
It might be nice if, on the page of a question asked, a list of the same-user's other recent posted questions (either Quick Answers/Forum) were shown with date/time (sorted from most recent) and title (as links).
( In Quick Answers, perhaps on the right, above/below the Top Experts lists. In Forums, maybe a popup/hover/???. )
If we see a (very) recent question with the same or similar title, we can check if it is really the same question or not.
I (like most of us, I expect) go through the Quick Answers in the presented order (most recent first). We will not necessarily see that the question is a repeat. And in the Forums, it is even harder to detect cross-posting.
