MaplePrimes Suggestions

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

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,


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 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 ?

At one point mapleprimes was fun and enjoyable ... until you get thumbed down with no explanation, it's really a kick in the teeth to see such things.  Because I see the thumbs down is still operational as it was to be removed.

This forum is not about some power trip and getting points thumbing people down or up and destroying the order of posts.  This is about sharing information and helping people get answers, if the answer is not good then let...

On the topic of the quality of rendering of (2D) Math on websites, could that also be re-examined for both Mapleprimes and Maplesoft's on-line help system?

Right now the on-line help has pages with missing images in Examples. For example, the `int` and `sum` on-line help pages, here and here.

On that

   The recent flow of spam into MaplePrimes gave an opportunity to recall some pages fallen out of our memory: interesting questions, deep answers, and rich in content posts. It suggested me the following idea which I would like to discuss with the  MP members. Maybe, it would be reasonable to create a new heading "The best of MaplePrimes" in MaplePrimes. For example, every month experts choose a few candidates to be included in "The best of MP". Then the...

I will never understand, why spam postings are deleted - but the user is not locked or trashed.

Today again the same is flooding again.

I recently upgraded to Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 x64. I was unable to get the "Insert Link" or "Insert Content" buttons of the "File Uploader" to work. I found that enabling "Compatibility View" seems to resolve the problems with those buttons in the "File Uploader."

Unfortunately, even with "Compatibility View" enabled I seem to be unable to comment on posts. When I hit the Submit button I am taken to the post view however my Comment does not appear.

We are currently working on a set of updates to MaplePrimes, which you can expect to see rolled out sometime during the first quarter of this year.  Most of the changes have been taken directly from your comments and feedback about MaplePrimes, so thank you very much!

Some of the changes you can expect to see include:

  • Down-voting will be removed entirely.  Up-voting will continue to work as it does now.
  • An advanced search feature will...
