Following the spam hunts that are ongoing on the Spam and Abuse section I came to the conclusion that 10 reports are way too many to allow proper spammer deletion. It happens often in facts that spammer reported on the Spam and Abuse section remain even after days since the report, until the post is pushed down to the other pages to be forgotten forever - and the spammer accounts are still there.
My idea is to lower the reports needed with a reputation criterion. This ensures that one-shot accounts may be removed easily, while keeping safe from abuse active members of the community. The "right" number should be 3-5 reports, to allow fast deletion of the spammers.
I was doing a search for spammy terms to look whether there would be old spam around, and I saw that some search results contained a link to a spam message that already has been removed, which shouldn't be in the list anymore.
Can these messages please be hidden from search results?

I would like to request that article owners with sufficient reputation/points be allowed to pin posts to the top of the discussion forums associated with their articles.
This would allow me (in this instant) to prevent important threads falling off the first (latest) page of posts.
Then when I am sure that a certain thread has died naturally, I can unpin it whereafter it can either stay at top but now be subject to dropping down the order or it can be relocated to its correct chronological position.
We can't even ask questions, never mind engage. I can understand the US only for answerers, for now, but you have a healthy list of countries that may ask, with one glaring omission. Did we do something wrong?

Helpouts on partner sites is currently available for anyone in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Russia, Philippines, and Japan who needs help; however, to become a provider and give help, you must be in the U.S.
For the moment Helpouts will be only for US members. An email has been sent out to those in the US to help get them started, with other countries coming online as soon as possible.
But why?? I hear you screaming to the heavens.
Partly it's dealing with the legal requirements in each country, and partly it's because at this point the notifications and registration require SMS access which is its own can of worms. Changes in the future will make this a moot point, but for now we're stuck with what we have and would rather launch than continue to wait.
I think this explain it all.

Can you display the amount of reports your own profile has (only visible to the profile owner)?
That way upstanding members who get reported by troll accounts (or accumulate 12 reports (or however many are needed) over as many years) can take action before it's to late (ask here to have them investigated / removed) and won't have to rely on fellow members to ask, or create a new account just to ask to have their main account opened again.
Dear CodeProject administrator,
In August 2013 I won the codeproject prize in the competition of the best webdev article but I never received my Prize. This is the link of my article :
I tried a lot to find a way for talking to you. I never got any email or message in codeproject about how to get my prize. Finally I asked a question in the forum and one of the guys gave me your email. So, please help me to get my Prize since I have tried a lot for this article.
I am looking forward to your response and more guides
Thanks for reply,
Here when i am writing right now the Firefox built in spell checker is working (shows type mistakes with zigzag red line under word), but in article editor it is disabled and there is no option in the UI to enable it.
