MaplePrimes Suggestions

Have a problem with MaplePrimes? Want to suggest a possible improvement to the site? Please post it here.

I've just published an update to MaplePrimes that fixes a few minor bugs and adds one new feature:

  • Your Bio is now displayed on your profile page. This can be edited on your edit profile page
  • The paging between Answers, Questions and Posts on a user's profile is now working.
  • The rendered image from the 2-D math button is now up 300px wide, which should cause most math to appear better.
  • When creating a post, the date is now stored correctly instead of 4 hours off as it was before.
  • The "Mark Page as Read" button now works on the Recent tab.

Several of my posts were voted up or down, and I couldn't see who did that. It would be a useful feature to be able to see who voted posts up or down - at least for your own posts.

When I want to look through somebody's (including my own) posts, who has several pages of them, neither clicking the arrow nor clicking another page number works - even if the new page says something like page 2 of 6, or page 3 of 7, it shows exactly the same posts that were on page 1.

When I tabbed on the recent tab I thought I was back home at the old mapleprimes.  The layout is much nicer there.

Will you be transforming the rest of the site to that layout?

On another note, I made two posts, but I had disabled scripts at my end.  And it doesn't look like they were posted (this one re-doing and another) I've turned it back on and I will see if it posts.

I just finished a post and it said it was posted 4 hours ago?

I like to read everything here. I don't want to miss any reply, but I also don't want to have any subscriptions. Would it be possible for the new site to have another right-column section entitled "Recent Replies", whose header would be a link to an expanded history (only of links to replies)?

I noticed when a later post gets more votes it gets shuffled up to the top of the chain.  However if it's a long thread and some posts get more thumbs up than others you will have an extremely out of sync or chaotic type thread.  Where an answer to the original post may refer to or even answer a later question further down the line which may confuse the reader ... err sorry, will confuse the reader.

I suggest that you don't bubble the most thumbs up answer to the top of the thread. 

Some of the links from google link, link to the old mapleprimes which are now broken. 

Links to images in some posts are gone as relevant in one of my earlier posts here http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/87740-Different-Size-Points-For-Pointplot-And-Transforming-To-3d-With-2d-Symbols 

which as of a couple of days ago when the old mapleprimes was still active, all images in the post were visible.

What I like about the new primes - it has new graphics.

What I don't like - I think the new format has taken away the ease of use of the site. 

Firstly, in the top level of the tree categories the user picture and ranking comes first , I don't know about you but I was taught to put the most important thing first to grab the users attention.  The way it's set up means the user is more focused on who wrote the message rather...

In the "Unread" and "All" tabs pages, information is still missing about the nature of the "Last Action": whether a comment, an update of the original post or what.

2-4*x*BesselI(1,x)-x^2*BesselK(2,x)

2-4*x*BesselI(1,x)-x^2*BesselK(2,x)

The too short 2D math area width is still a problem (I have requested the solution of this problem many times along the beta period)

Edit: timing of posts is still an issue (it was also an issue during beta...

I am a bit missing orientation, but that may come, hopefully.

Where can I find my own blog posts? And in the old board it was easy to track my postings or threads ... And in some cases the blog was used as reference by others ... Is it gone?

Then: I do not want to automatically subscribe to each thread where I write a comment - is there a personal setting to switch that off again?

Writing these comment a capital letter T has a size of 2 mm in height,...

Is it possible to import the branch structure of discussions from the old MaplePrimes?  In many cases it looks like all the replies are put into a flat list.

The badges list makes for some interesting self-evaluation of my time, what I've posted, and how I've made my posts. But, I think the layout could be improved.

First, put the information in columns. The first column is the icon. Other column include my tally, the number needed to earn the badge, a description of the badge, AND an explicit indication of the badges that I've earned (or made progress towards).

It might also be nice to be able to sort this list in different ways. Alphabetically, according to whether I've earned the badge, progress towards new badges, most common badges within the community, ....

Lastly, the tab title "Badges" might be more informative if it were changed to "My Badges". It took me a little while to realize this list was reporting my tallies toward each badge. The columns will help, but this title change would make this even more clear.

Looking forward to seeing how the new MaplePrimes continues to evolve,
