Deleting User Samples on GotDotNet

User Samples is the most popular GotDotNet feature. Over the last few months, I've received emails from numerous customers complaining that they could not delete a User Sample of their own creation after submitting it. The most common reason for this request was the release of the wrong version of a sample.  There being no easier way to justify a feature than to slap down a pile of emails on my manager's desk (metaphorically speaking), I set out to fix this problem. If you are the not-so-proud owner of a User Sample on GDN, you can now delete it from the Edit Sample page. In addition to enabling sample deletion, we also added a handful of new attributes so that you can more easily identify the technologies to which your samples relate.

My team is working hard to make GotDotNet one of the most informative and immersive websites for Windows and .NET programmers in the world. If you have ideas for how we can continue to improve GotDotNet, please feel free to email me directly. I may not respond to you quickly but rest assured that I am listening. Thanks for sharing your great code snippets, samples, and How-Tos with the rest of us! You are changing the world, one line of code at a time.
