Dear all

I have n, p two integers greater than one

I would like to minimize the following real number by a fixed positive constant if its possible

(n/(n+p))^(n/p)-(n/(n+p))^((n+p)/p)

Many thanks

The content in all comments posted on any Blog posts are missing.  What happened to them?

Below I have pasted the recent post of a spammer who's title was http:// 

First of all, I thought those spam filters had taken care of those. 
Secondly why isn't there an http:// with a zero rating user poster filter on this forum yet?

 

 

Important Question
Anyone figured out how to upload a worksheet since the revamp? Big green up-arrow appears no longer functional

Less important question
Mapleprimes input window can no longer be stretched horizontally - is this deliberate?

When I made the suggestions about new ways to delete spam, I specifically requested that there be no confirmation dialogs. I even emphasized it. But I see that there is such a dialog. Was the author of the spam asked to confirm whether they wanted to make the post? So you're saying that my time is worth less than the spammer's. Every time that I need to answer that dialog, it's an insult, a slap in the face direct from Maplesoft.

The new look and feel of MaplePrimes is ugly and disfunctional nearly beyond belief. Please put back the old look and feel ASAP. I am not commenting here about any new controls or features because I haven't tried them yet. The wasting of space on the screen is incredible. The windows with sharp corners are ugly. The grey colors make it look like selections are inactivated. Most of the controls that can be clicked on are not highlighted in any way.

Just as an example of the waste of space, I now need to scroll down three screens just to get to the Active Conversations stack.

Once again, anything that you can do to make the look and feel similar to any StackExchange forum would be an improvement.

Today we have published an update to MaplePrimes that includes a variety of improvements. Many of these changes are a direct result of member feedback and suggestions, and I am very appreciative for that!

What follows is a brief summary of the changes. As always, we remain very interested in your thoughts and feedback, and look forward to your further suggestions.

Also, a note that, as mentioned in a previous post, we have already begun working on a further update to address the influx of spam we have been receiving. This update will be published within the next 2-3 weeks.

Updated Look and feel
The most obvious change is the updated interface. With a few exceptions, the previous layout and functionality has been maintained, but with a cleaner, more responsive, and more appealing look.

New message editor
This update includes a new text editor called CKEditor. This editor provides a simpler, cleaner experience for posting your messages and also aligns MaplePrimes more closely with the Maplesoft product suite.

Notifications
You will notice a new flag icon in the upper right hand corner of the interface. This is the new MaplePrimes Notification feature, and it provides similar functionality to what we have become accustomed to on other social media sites. The icon is displayed in an orange color when you have notifications, and then when opened, your new notifications are highlighted in blue. Clicking on a notification will take you directly to the item being referenced.

Improved flow for removing spam messages
As any MaplePrimes moderator could tell you, removing spam on MaplePrimes was a cumbersome process taking 4 clicks. In this update, this process has been streamlined to 2 clicks, which will make the process considerably faster for our legion of spam fighters. In addition, the ability to remove spam is now available on all message types – comments, replies, etc.

Identification Badges
There are now 3 identification badges that are used throughout MaplePrimes wherever member information is displayed. These include:

 Denotes a member who works at Maplesoft

 Site moderators are the heart and soul of MaplePrimes, and are now identified by this new badge

 A member who also particpates in the Maple Ambassador Program

Other fixes and improvements
In addition to the changes mentioned above, several other minor fixes and improvements were made.

I don't understand why the spam issue has not been resolved yet.  A ton of spam this morning!

Here's some more help. 

Any title or question of a post containing http:// should be automatically deleted. 

Clearly there is a name generator in place somewhere creating new accounts.  Is there not some kind of higher security name creation account done here at mapleprimes?  Ironically you would think this being a math type forum it would be hard to spam.

While looking at the tags you will find a sizeable link to pages tagged garcinia (http://www.mapleprimes.com/tags/). There are no posts with this tag as the posts with this tag were indeed spam. Please remove all the related tags.

In order to change Maple for the better, I use to submit SCRs. However, as i was kindly
informed by Bryon (a copy of his e-letter on demand), MaplePrimes are under reconstruction and do not
work properly. At least my three messages sent through the Contact button were lost.
I have  unsuccessfully tried to reach beta.maplesoft.com (see the result of ping in the screen screen.29.08.16.docx).
Please, help me!

What's up with Mapleprimes's timing today? Every time I click on a Post or Question, the main post loads at the normal speed (which is slow to start with), and then it takes a full minute for the Answers or Replies (or lack thereof) to load. This has been consistent for every Post or Question that I've read today. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hello,how can i find the roots of this equation? "5lambda.tan(lambda)-1" and lambda=0..10

I have recently taken a few comments and questions about moderation, and thought it would be worthwhile to clarify our policies.

Although financed and hosted by Maplesoft, MaplePrimes is a community-run site. Our members provide thoughtful posts, answer thousands of questions each year, and generally keep things running smoothly by removing spam and moderating content. Moderation and management capabilities are granted automatically based on a member's reputation, which is a measure of how their content is valued by other community-members. Once someone's reputation score reaches 500, moderation privileges are granted. There are currently 69 members who have moderation capabilities.

We have had this system running for years, and by and large, it works well. There are occasional problems, of course, and these have been dealt with on an as-needed basis, and will continue to be dealt-with going forward.

What is the intent of moderation?

Quite simply, moderation capabilities are provided to maintain a high-standard of content. We want our moderators to help maintain a well organized and technically-sound site, without altering the intent or context of the original post.

Common examples of acceptable moderation scenarios include:

  • Removing spam or messages that violate our community guidelines
  • Editing the tags, categories or product(s) associated with a question or post
  • Correcting incorrect technical content such as bad URLs included in a post or poor formatting
  • Correcting a typo or improper spelling is appropriate in limited scenarios when the mistake made the original message confusing. In general practice, however, it is best to not edit someone else's grammar or spelling.

 

What is moderation not for?

MaplePrimes members cover a very diverse range of backgrounds, languages, technical skill with Maplesoft products, and familiarity with MaplePrimes. It is therefore normal that posts and questions within MaplePrimes reflect this diversity.

In order to respect the author, as well as to maintain the context of the original question or post, there are some scenarios where moderation should not be employed. For example:

  • Many members are not fluent in English, yet the context of their message/question is very clear. In cases like this, correcting improper spelling or grammar (unless requested) is disrespectful and should be avoided. 
  • Do not edit or remove another person's code, even if it is incorrect or incomplete. Doing so can completely change the context of the message and makes the message very confusing for people who read that thread in the future.
  • Do not edit the context of a message to make it 'read better'. Even if your intentions are good, edits like these are can be seen as disrespectful, and in some cases, even inflammatory.

In general, I recommend following this rule: If you're not 100% certain that your edit will be helpful and appreciated by everyone, do not make it.

 

What can I do if I disagree with a moderator's changes?

MaplePrimes moderators are invaluable for keeping MaplePrimes running smoothly, and as mentioned above, they do a great job. From time to time, however, a change may be made that you disagree with. Often such changes are a result of a misunderstanding on the part of the moderator, or perhaps just an honest mistake.

In situations like these, my recommendation is to contact MaplePrimes administrators by flagging the post as 'other' and providing the details. We will then look into the issue and (hopefully) reach a speedy resolution. During this process, we will contact the poster and/or the moderator to discuss the changes. If needed, further actions can be taken, from further education up to and including suspending or removing moderator privileges. 

 

I hope this has been helpful, and I'm looking forward to your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below.

     I want to understand what the forum rules I break? And why do me constantly interferes Markiyan Hirnyk? A recent example: he removed my comments in the subject  http://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/203796-Equidistant-Surface-

At the beginning of the theme I have provided the text of the program, and then gave a description of the algorithm in words. In removed by Hirnyk examples I have quoted only the formula, because the text of the program has not changed.

I have long known Hirnyk for Russian-speaking forums and personal correspondence. Communication with him for a long time I stopped, because it is extremely unpleasant man, and it seems very angry and envious. In addition, the level of competence is very low and is away from the content of my subject. I am convinced of this. I will not say he is constantly trying to harm me on Russian forums.

     ( Хочу понять, какие правила форума я нарушаю? И почему мне постоянно мешает  Markiyan Hirnyk? Из последних примеров: он удалил мои комментарии в теме http://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/203796-Equidistant-Surface-
В начале темы я предоставил текст программы и потом дал описание алгоритма на словах. В удалённых Hirnyk примерах я привел только формулу, потому что текст программы не изменился.  
Я давно знаю  Hirnyk  по русскоязычным форумам и по личной переписке. Общение я с ним давно прекратил, потому что человек он крайне неприятный, и, похоже, очень злой и завистливый. К тому же уровень его  компетенции весьма невысок и находится в стороне от содержания моих тем. Я в этом убеждён. Не буду говорить, как он пытается постоянно вредить мне на русских форумах. )
