C# Corner New Features Announced

In a set of new feature announcements, this week we launched some new features on the C# Corner website. Please provide your feedback on these new features.

Please let us know what your perspective on these features is by posting comments below.

We have implemented the emoticons for more clarified feedback on each article, news, or blog. We have also taken into consideration points raised by the users in the post earlier about the “Thumbs Down” emoticon. When the user dislikes any content, he/she can provide a reason for the same.



Statistics and follow feature is now available on all the content which is posted by the author.
