@pagan Thanks for letting me know. They are fixed again.

We discussed allowing the author of a question to be able to choose an Answer as the "Accepted" answer, as is done on StackOverflow. We ended up deciding not to implement the feature because we felt that most of the questions asked on Primes don't have a single "correct" answer, that each author can have a different correct solution to the same problem.

So we don't want to mark a question as Answered because that would discourage others from contributing their own unique answers to the problem.

You can already see if a question has answers or comments by looking at the number of replies indicated in all of the listings of questions.

The "Your Contributions" tab shows threads that you started/participated in that have been updated since you last viewed the page. So it is not intended to show all of your posts.

@Christopher2222 The notifications sent out by a different sever than the one the MaplePrimes website lives on. Any updates to that will not affect the main site's performance.

This is a known issue as I describe here. We hope to fix it soon.

The student forum has been replaced with the Student Tag. MaplePrimes automatically suggests that users who chose "Student" as their segment when signing up add the "Student" tag to their questions and posts. This helps to keep student questions segmented. 

The tag doesn't support stickies, and there may be value in adding that. However, Maple itself contains lots of useful getting started information, so locking that information to the top of MaplePrimes pages may not be too useful.

I just copied the Favicon from the old MaplePrimes over to the new Primes. This is the same icon that we use for Maplesoft.com as well.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Alex's Answer has turned into a seperate conversation. I have branched it into a new Question. @Axel, this means that your comment has been turned back into an Answer.
