What's happened to it? 

As some of you noticed, we launched the new version of MaplePrimes today. Unfortunately, we have ran into server problems with the new site, and have switched back to the old version of the site. We are working on figuring out what the cause of the problem is, and will be re-launching the new site soon.

UPDATE: WE have made some changes to the site that have fixed the problem we experienced before. Please enjoy the new and improved MaplePrimes!

The optional e-mailing about new replies to the participated topic would be useful.

I thought of a couple of new forum subtopics ... just an idea

Maple training beginner to advanced
 - not sure of the formalities here but this could be sub-forum-topic where one could go to get a better grasp of using maple however I think that comes with time anyways, as I said just a thought.  Lots of tutorials out there that do similar things anyways.

Using Maple in interesting ways
- This would be a subforum where users could post their finished projects.

For the past few weeks I have been unable to upload image files to MaplePrimes. Here's what happens.  I press the green up arrow and locate the file to be uploaded (typically a .GIF file). After I say OK and press the Upload button, the preview shows the last file I successfully uploaded.

Is this, by chance, a problem with my account - or my browser, or is it a MaplePrimes problem.

I don't know what additional information  you need. Please let me know and I'll do my best to comply.


Something's wrong with the file upload feature. Look at my list of files; it now shows at least three copies of the same file, two from this morning (and the original one from some days ago). The first copy is fine. The last two are supposed to be a different file (p1.gif). I can select this file through the file browser, but that file is not the one that is uploaded. All I get is another copy of the last file I uploaded.

This looks like it's a bug in the MaplePrimes system.

It would be good if we could flag for admin scrutiny not just posts but also user handles.

It might help with this kind of nonsense.

Dear Moderator,

What is the reason that I have to request one-time password again and again?

This annoying behaviour started a few months ago.

Thanks,   Sandor


hmm, unless I've missed something.  In any of the forums here, the first welcome post, sticky, just says hi welcome.  No explanation as to how to use the forum.  Unless one knows to navigate to books -> mapleprimes help there is no link in the first sticky post to go there and no rhym or reason why someone would go under books to find the mapleprimes help page.  I believe it should be a link available in the first sticky post of any forum.  Just my two cents.

I'm having a ton of trouble trying to insert a picture into a post.  I got it to work the other night however it's not a simple 1 step procedure.  First I upload the jpg file using the file manager which inserts a red x on the body of text then I have to click on the red x and click the insert edit image button for the picture to actually appear in the post before I post the message. 

The Search facility for Mapleprimes is broken. Recent posts containing the relevant keywords are not being returned in search results.

For example, searching for either Azul or Rossler does not return a match with either relevant, matching post currently on mapleprimes' front page.

It appears as if the searchable terms database is not being updated with recent results (since the last mapleprimes system overhaul. some months ago?!).


I'm having troubles to log in into my account lately - Maple Primes doesn't seem to recognize either my username or my password. When I request a new password and then change it in my profile, the same problem comes back the next time I want to sign in. I'm using my e-mail adress as my username - could the problem be this? I was able to sign in quite easily until recently thoug.



This is sure to become a pressing issue. Maybe adding some kind of visual character recognition gadget for new users with fewer than 10 posts?

P.S. the kind of visual test I routinely fail, yes.

A Frequent Answers section of MaplePrimes, where users can contribute detailed answers to issues that frequently arise, would be useful.  Responders to typical posts could then add a link to the appropriate answer rather than having to recreate it each time.  Note the suggested title; that seems superior to the more usual Frequently Asked Questions because, quite often, the question is not being asked.  For example, a common problem is using ?sum when ?add should be used.  The corresponding entry might explain why this is an issue, give examples where each

When I click on my Maple Rank icon on the upper-right of the site I am taken to:

The content reads:

"The table below shows the number of points that each user receives for each type of posting The number of times that OptimusMaplePrime has posted each type, and how many points that OptimusMaplePrime received for all of their posts of that type"

(Note that periods are missing on the page, not just in my quotation of it.)
