MaplePrimes Suggestions

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

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.)

Some key words will take a lot time when search for something by text

It's fast when search for something by topic in Help system

Can I stop the search progress?

Maybe the search function canbe developed,more quickly.

Perhaps it would help to be able to flag not only replies but also parent forum and blog posts.

what happened...

my god

For the past few weeks I have not been receiving any of the auto-generated e-mails notifying me that someone has responded to a forum, blog, ... that I have contributed to. I checked my settings in MaplePrimes, and this feature is still active for my account. I've not found these messages in my junk folder.

Is it just me, or are others not receiving these e-mails as well?


Is the "math" typesetting in the forum working? Example Sum((-1)^n/n,n=1..infinity)

I noticed that highlighted text in a recent submission of mine was changed to hyperlinks to Maple help pages, which is much nicer. Is there a convenient way that I can do it myself?  Ideally that would entail selecting the name and then clicking a "make link to Maple help page" button (i.e. it should be just as easy as making it bold text, which is what I originally did).

When I upload a file, say Dynamics1.mws, it is stored in the following location:

However, the link associated with the file name -- on the left-hand side in the Filename column -- is incorrect:

Rather silly and surely easy to fix.

I'm guessing that the following behavior is a mapleprimes feature.

In the forums, when a thread loads, the display always jumps to the bottom of the page to an insertion point waiting in the reply box.

I like to read messages, before I reply.

Is there a way to turn off this "feature" ?

I just searched the mapleprimes site for information on how to mark all forum messages as "read".

In July 2005, somebody asked how to do this.  William Spaetzel responded by noting that there is no such feature and that he would think about adding it.  He repeated this statement, about two months later.

In March 2006, somebody else asked how.  There's no mapleprimes response to that message.

In July 2009, I'm asking again.

Has the suggestion from three years ago been officially rejected by mapleprimes?

There is no Bugs (or Possible Bugs) forum in MaplePrimes at all.

1) Report a bug using this link
isn't encouraging, because nobody (except maplesoft staff) will know who found the bug.

I am not receiving email notifications from subscribed threads since about two days ago, without any change on my side. Has anyone else experienced this same problem?

hi all,

                            I  have a program written using Matlab, how can I change it into a program written using Maple.

the program:


function [xmin, fxmin, iter] = PSO

success = 0;      

Please would someone point me to a list-by-date option in mapleprimes' advanced search.

I wanted to find out if there were messages about "maple tags", found a thread dating back to february 2008 in which a series of problems which I am experiencing were described, so naturally I wanted to know if more recent posts had addressed similar issues, with possible solutions or hints. But I couldn't find an option to list messages by date, say by "most recent" (as in google groups).
