MaplePrimes Suggestions

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

As of yesterday's updates to the MaplePrimes software, the ordering of the Answers in a User's Profile has been changed from reverse chronological to forward chronological. This sucks. If you have to change it, then at least make the ordering an option. I will note that the ordering of a User's Posts is still reverse chronological. It makes no sense for Posts to be in one order and Answers in another.

Also, I still cannot login on Firefox. I turned off all my add-ons, and it still doesn't work. It doesn't reject my credentials; rather it acts (for one screen) like it is logging me in as someone with a null name and 0 reputation.

When I edit someone else's material, it changes the author to me!!

In Internet Explorer, I need to update every page every time I view it. If I don't, I won't see the new material. 

I have not noticed any improvement in the amount of time it takes for updates to appear in the right column. It can still take a half hour from when the post/answer/reply was made.

I can post answers, but those are not shown

PS: would have done at other threads - but as alreyd said ...

PPS: how about testing? grrrrrrrrrr .......

Earlier today, we posted an update to MaplePrimes that introduces some improvements, and also addresses a few issues. The most significant & noticeable improvements are speed related, and the performance of virtually every function/page on MaplePrimes has been improved dramatically.  The average increase is approximately 2x, but some pages (for example, Recent Questions or Unanswered Questions) benefit from much greater increases!

Other issues/enhancements include:

  • There was a problem where MaplePrimes would occasionally send multiple notification messages when a single reply/comment/answer was added to a thread that you are subscribed to. This no longer occurs.

  • MaplePrimes has been added as a clickable option under 'products' when asking a question or creating a post, and MaplePrimes-related topics are now grouped together.

  • The lag between when a new thread is created and when it appears in the right-hand side bar (this lag was often multiple minutes) has been eliminated. 
     
  • We added a data-integrity restriction such that if an answer or a reply has been added to a message, that original message can no longer be deleted. Formerly, the original author was able to remove their post, and subsequently all related comments, at any time.

There were a variety of smaller issues corrected as well.

We hit a couple of small bumps in the road during the implementation of the update (for example, there was a temporary issue where replies or answers didn't work), but we believe these have been taken care of. If you encounter any additional issues, please let us know.

We hope that these enhancements and fixes continue to make MaplePrimes more enjoyable to use, and I'm looking forward to your feedback!

I can't post any Replies or Answers. It acts like they are being posted, but they just disappear. I've tried both in IE and Firefox.

Sorry for posting my appeal here but it is the only guarantee that it will be read by the Developer. I'd like to pay your attention that there is no possibility to copy and paste a piece of code directly from the Maple worksheet to the body of message in Mapleprimes. The copied piece of code from Maple is pasted into message box in Mapleprimes as an image! So every...

i noticed members use such tags in their post very rarely in mapleprimes

and i am confused whether ?

there is a list of special html tags that are supported in "HTML Source Editor" of mapleprimes

that are compatible with it ? or all tags described in html5 or html4 are compatible ?

i just tested a few of those tags and they work excellent ...

Comments to posts should also have the option to up vote.

Last week we added a new feature to MaplePrimes that provides the ability to sort the answers to a question by votes (default setting), or by date. Based on a few of your suggestions to that post, we have enhanced this feature today.

First, you now will notice that there are three options for sorting:

  • Sort by votes
  • Sort by date (oldest first)
  • Sort by date (newest first)

Consider a signal which is a real sine series, f(x)=2*sin(2*Pi*x) + 5*sin(2*Pi*6*x) + 9*sin(2*Pi*11*x).

Let F(w) be its Fourier transform. Answer F(w) is purely complex and expressed in terms of symbol Dirac.

Maple "plot" fails.

Plots of impulse trains like F(w)=sqrt(Pi)*I*(2*Dirac(w-Pi)+4*Dirac(w-4*Pi)) involve user intervention. Maple won't plot such expressions, because they are DISTRIBUTIONS (not FUNCTIONS).

Try plotting F(w) to see the engine's uninformative error message....

I made this new thread because I cannot make replies in the original thread.

The new option added to MaplePrimes about two hours ago----to show Answers by date----only shows the Answers in reverse chronologocal order. That's ridiculous! Even more so with the comments still being in forward chronological order. The reason that people have requested date order so vehemently is to preserve the continuity of conversation. With the reverse chronological order, the continuity is worse than before.

Earlier this afternoon we made an update to MaplePrimes to introduce some new features and to squash a few bugs.

The primary purpose of the update was to improve the context around how replies and answers are entered on MaplePrimes. The most significant change you will notice here is that submission/edit boxes now appear inline  under the specific message you are replying to, instead of at the bottom of each page.

Other improvements include:

Dear friends,

I have recently been calculating a sum from this link.

The problem here is to calculate the sum sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/(n^2+a) with a some positive real number. You probably all agree that it is preferable to express it using elementary functions from basic calculus as opposed to the Gamma, Zeta and Digamma...

I just posted and then clicked 'logout' (upper right on the page).

After going back I recognize I am still logged in. Strange. Does
the page not clear the data (= cookies?) for that demand?
