MaplePrimes Suggestions

Have a problem with MaplePrimes? Want to suggest a possible improvement to the site? Please post it here.
Try to typeset the word "style" in a pre tag, it doesn't work. For example, upon entering
<pre>plot(pts, style=point);</pre> I get

plot(pts, >

Note: this particular post doesn't exhibit the problem, it merely mimics it. It is posted using the plain text format; HTML tags have no effect.
Though I am able to edit my responses in other forums, I don't appear to have that ability in the Maple Commons forum. I noted a few errors in my recent response but am not able to edit it. That is, there is no "edit" field available.
I just posted a question on the "How do I...?" forum and when the line is
long it does not automatically wrap to the next line, just as this
does on the first line. It's not a 'big deal' - just a minor
inconveniemce. Or is there something I'm not doing?
Have just previewed this and the output to the forum looks OK. However on input the text goes
into the third column and cannot be seen - that's what I'm talking about.
It appears the output is OK but the input text is only obscured on long lines.

Can we have ... well, there will be a lot of requests :)

At the left and the right there are kind of 'overview' informations
while reading in a forum or a topic. At that time this is not
needed for orientation.

Might it be possible to have that available through a button
or list or whatever in the header so it is shown on user's
wish only?

That would give much more space for the things to read ... or write

Could you add the option to attach files to reply messages? Currently it is possible only for the initial message of the thread.
As the title states, the pre tag should act like a LaTeX verbatim environment. For those not accustomed to the Joys of TeX, a verbatim environment duplicates the enclosed text. I thought that that was what the pre tag, however, that doesn't appear to be the case. That is, less-than signs (<) in a pre "environment" muck up the html. This makes it quite inconvenient to post snippets of maple code; we have to replace `<' with `&gt;', not particularly convenient. For example,
<pre>
proc()
    if x<y then true fi
end proc:
</pre>
is rendered, more or less, as
It is nice to receive an e-mail message telling me when there is a posting in a thread that I am following in MaplePrimes. When I click on the link in the e-mail, I am taken to a page that reports "Access Denied" (when I am not logged onto MaplePrimes). I do not know what happen if am logged in. There is no indication that the problem is that I am not logged in. I would find it much more informative (and friendly) if the response from the MaplePrimes site was to ask me to log in (showing the login window by default). Assuming successful authentication, I should then be taken to the page with the message.
Click the "How do I..." link under "Popular Places" (left side of Maple Primes website). Now click "Experienced Users How do I Forum". This goes to the newbie link, not the experienced users' forum. Also, fix the (varied) misspellings of "Users'". You could just eliminate the apostrophe and few will notice (the link to "forum" is distant and one could argue that the possessive isn't really applicable), but to be precise (I think) go with "Users'".
I noticed that the urls for forum topics are of the form: beta.maplesoft.com/forum/forum_topic_urls The url is formed from the title of the topic. What happens when there are multiple forum posts with the same title? I assume the software is smart enough to deal with, but I wanted to make sure. I was going to do a test, but I figured I'd just ask instead. Darin
Is it possible to set a cookie to store my login information?
Or would engineering be under "Applied Science"?
Forum pages do not seem to have a printer-friendly version option as the Maple FAQ section pages. Is it possible to add it? Alejandro
What is the point of the everthing but forum? It seems like the topics that might go in that forum could be just as easily (and perhaps more appropreately) posted as blog entries. Do people really want to discuss their hobbies in the Maple Primes forum? I think it is better not to have off topic forums like this because it might confuse less savy (or ESL) users.
This is more a question than a suggestion... under the "new content" tab, what does the "red star" beside some of the topics listed mean? At first I thought it indicates new topics added since I last logged in. But it doesn't seem to be consistent since I remember reading some of topics with "red star" before... Also, is there a way to list only those topics/threads with new materials (replies)? Currently, the new content tab seems to be listing ALL topics/materials in reverse posting order. But some threads/topics added later might not have new replies while some older topics would have new responses... this makes it hard to quickly locate what is new... (I know RSS would probably work in this case... but I kind of like to have a page of listing and quickly browse through it...)
