MaplePrimes Suggestions

After making a search for applications in the applications center, they are ordered in some crazy unknown way. 

They do not appear to be ordered alphabetically by author, nor by title and also they have no date published attached to the searched list. 

Searching for all titles by product Maple 16, we find that TEST APPLICATION created July 31 is actually listed behind Robert Lopez's Classroom Tips and Techniques: Slider-Control of Parameters in Numeric...

This is a problem I've had with the new mapleprimes. Contributions listed as "answers" to a question are listed according to the number of votes they receive. This is a system used on forums like mathoverflow, for instance, websites designed to provide answers to specific questions, websites where "discussions" are discouraged. But, in my opinion, mapleprimes is both a discussion and question/answer forum and the "rank by vote" is not suited to it.

In the example I...

I am finding, if you add to an old question directed towards someone at maplesoft before the weekend but after a maplesoft business day has ended, your question may not be answered or addressed. This is because your new question in the thread has been swamped by newer questions and yours has trickled down the list and essentially becomes buried or lost. 

I also find too much information related to posted questions are being summarized in the top level making it...

There is no option to change your original email address and save in mapleprimes. 

**edit add**  Sorry the option is there but the option to save the new email is not.

Half of posts under firefox look cut. For example:

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/128564-Any-Way-To-Reclaim-NAG-d01akc-Allocated.

It depends on minimal font size. If set to 15 error can be seen.

Please reconsider order of messages in posts acorrding to option reply. I don't understand why my answer

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/127969-Encapsulated-Transformation-Of-Expression

( Moments ago by to Axel Vogt) appears at the end of list instead to be in that branch where it should be.

I also know that branch menu is completly for other purposes, not for this.

Sometimes if code is not made available to download it must be transcribed or copied (I prefer the select content, crtl-c (copy), crtl-v (paste), route.  However sometimes the code must be decoded due to the way 2-D math is interpreted when it is copied to Notepad. 

For example,

a:=(x,t)->5*x+3*t*x^2    

in Standard mode looks like       a := proc (x, t) options...

I've noticed times are off in mapleprimes. 

For example, Foreign exchange post I replied to (yesterday morning? I'm sure it was, it was not last evening).  However this morning 7:58 am Sept 29 the post I replied with says I replied Yesterday at 8:45pm (something is amiss with am's and pm's or something)

 

Several things are broken on mapleprimes right now, including

- embedded (full) worksheets as displayed 2D Math, etc

- reputation plots for several (if not most) members

- both moderator badge updates

 

We have published an update to MaplePrimes today that addresses a number of reported issues with the site, and also introduces some new features.  Much of what has changed has been in direct response to your suggestions and feedback, and I sincereley thank you for that!  

Please note that we have plans to make other substantial changes in the not-too-distant future.  I have written in the past about improvements we want to make to search (including adding an advanced search feature...

Down votes seem to disappear and "Add to my favorites" is showing instead.

The ongoing spam problem has made this site unusable. Even after spam is removed, it's effect on the "recent" pages persists. This is a months-old problem.

And after over a year the site still has no good support for displaying mathematics, or for entering 2D Maple input.

And there is no indication of any clear and concrete plan to properly address either of these problems, despite repeated requests and inquiries by members.

Most of the time I don't know what or why things are happening here on the mapleprimes site. 

I don't want it as a post or question as it gets shuffled down and is useless later on anyway. 

I would like a news section to inform me and everyone else of what is currently being worked on (ie the site programmers are currently working on ....  currently tags for posts are being updated), what is currently happening (spam attack - although this seems to be on the upswing lately...

Comments to the answers are not counted as replies in the list of recent posts, and adding a comment to an answer doesn't move the question up. 

Only answers and comments to the question are counted and adding them leads to moving the question up.

Why is it possible for http://www.mapleprimes.com/users/abraham to continue posting spam ? It is incredibly irritating for me, and I presume it must be for other bona fide users. Why can't the account be disabled, made inactive, or whatever is necessary to stop this ridiculous activity ?
