I've written an FAQ on plagiarism to help authors understand what is plagiarism, as well as help members identify it. It is here: CodeProject Plagiarism FAQ[^]
If you find an article that is plagiarized you can either submit a report on the article itself, marking it as "Plagiarized," or you can report it in the Spam and Abuse Watch[^] forum with your evidence and a link to the members account, or you can email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org if you suspect plagiarism or have further plagiarism questions or concerns.
This forum is for any and all questions for Code Project Article Writing:
Have a question about writing an article?
Having trouble posting?
Blog aggregation not working?
Not sure about your article topic?
Is your article still pending?
Is there a crazy formatting problem in your article?
Not sure how to update your article?
Having problems with the submission wizard?
Need help making a change to an existing article?
As a basic overview CodeProject articles have a certain layout to follow, so that users can learn the most from them. Each article attempts to answer the following questions: What problem does this solution solve? How does this help someone else? How does the code actually work? What is going on inside the code snippets?
Here is a submission from a first time author who did a terrific job, just to give you a basic overview of what a beginner article might look like: Avoiding InvokeRequired[^]
Thanks very much for your message. It looks like you tried to submit an article that needed a little more work. Would you be willing to make some changes to your article?

Next, a pure code dump with little to no explanation of how it works, nor examples of usage.
Lastly, template content left in article:
Step by Step Walk-throughs
For walk-through style articles, ensure your screenshots, code samples and code are up to date, or at the least, ensure you're clear on what version of a technology you're discussing. APIs change!
The other question is, how did this article get a 5* rating???
I have done no reading of the the article to check spelling and grammer as it is already approved...
I am not sure how this got approved. How many of those approved the article actually vett it? A bit of a concern.

While we are more than willing to help those that are stuck, that doesn't mean that we are here to do it all for you! We can't do all the work, you are either getting paid for this, or it's part of your grades and it wouldn't be at all fair for us to do it all for you.
So we need you to do the work, and we will help you when you get stuck. That doesn't mean we will give you a step by step solution you can hand in!
Start by explaining where you are at the moment, and what the next step in the process is. Then tell us what you have tried to get that next step working, and what happened when you did.
Even if we did do your homework for you - which we don't - this would be very much the wrong place to post this!

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 helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I was thinking… once I publish an article on CodeProject, does CodeProject own any copyright rights on that article and code?
Can I publish that article text or code in some other place as well? Use it in my presentation without mentioning CodeProject?
Also, Editor made some changes to the text… spelling, grammar, style changes. That is some work contributed to the article. Who owns copyright now to that version/revision?
