A Polite Request for Those Who Post Code

Lots of samples flying around - I think we released new versions of just about everything we publish in the last twelve months, so everyone is publishing all kinds of tutorials and how-tos online.

In observation of this, I have one simple request - if you're going to post sample code, please be sure to include any references you add to the project and the using statements from the head of the file. Thanks. 🙂

    While we’re at it, here are some more reasonable requests:

    – use decent variable names, avoiding the "this.button5 syndrome"

    – adhere to some kind of consistent standard, even if it’s Madman LuNaTiCase (syallabic capitalization with word-shared letters dropped)

    – would it kill you to leave in your pseudocode or sprinkle in a couple of explanatory comments (ex. why is the private Graphics member declared volatile)?

    – please take out unused stubs:

    /// <summary>

    /// Summary description for Form1.

    /// </summary>

    – try to leave in whitespace formatting when you can.
