The integration of Codeplex was also the first thing that came into my mind. The sandbox was used. It only didn't get much love in the current version of C9. Thumbnails, gone! File upload, semi-gone! Well hidden, true!
If you could attach Codeplex projects to your profile that would be enough I guess. And these might then surface in an own forum, where you get the logo (thumbnail back), a short description, a title and a link... Maybe the possiblity to add comments?
What do you think?
@Channel 9 down: it seems that the servers are doing something over Seattle night. Since I'm here I never got these problems anymore. Would be nice if the team investigated a little bit into why C9 is slow in other parts of the world, other than US.
@Tech: I hope we get improvements there too. There are just so many nasty problems, like the one that you mentioned, that should ge fixed. It doesn't impact the commenting on videos expierence but it surely does the forums experience. Maybe that's why it never got fixed?
@Nine guy: I think the one on the right assembles the real one the best. The left one has some issues with his antennas...
Edit: another common problem: you click on edit to edit the post. You change some text. You click on edit to save the post. You see the updated post in the thread. You press F5 to reload the page (just to make sure). You click on edit to edit the post. You get the post as it was before the last edit! I get this one so often!
