I just created a login on CodePlex. It was a very painful process. The reCaptcha would simply not work. I tried many times on 3 difference browsers over more than half an hour. Eventually, it worked, though I don't know why.
Logging in to CodePlex was also a pain. It took several tries and many seconds for the login to succeed.
How to make a pull request was not immediately obvious. There are multiple tabs for a project, but the one I want is under SOURCE CODE. First, you have to Fork. Then, you have to name your fork. (Why?) Then, you clone. Then, you push, Then, you Send Pull Request. Then, you have to type in a subject – whose length is strictly limited – and you are required to have a comment.
The problems with login are probably related to network issues or software bugs. (I've never had that kind of problem with reCaptcha before, however.) It could be that Microsoft has not done much testing with long-latency connections.
The other problems are just UI/UX bugs. Some of the basic steps are the same as GitHub, of course, but GitHub does a lot better job at making it easy and pleasant. For example, if you have a single-commit pull request, GitHub reuses the subject and body of the commit in the pull request. And there are a lot of other small things that add up to make the GitHub experience much better.
(I've been tainted by so many years of Git usage.)
As the article mentions, there is a “well-known advantage for being listed first on the ballot.” Guess who was listed first under the president options on my ballot.
