@nm to echo the comment from @acer, we hope you continue to contribute to MaplePrimes! As your high reputation score demonstrates, your contributions are greatly appreciated.

Reputation is important for many MaplePrimes members, and we have made a change today to help us better track why it changes. I discuss that change, and reputation in general, here.

@Christopher2222 As Christopher noticed, the question and (now) answers have been reinstated.

As it says on our about page, MaplePrimes is "a Web community dedicated to sharing experiences, techniques, and opinions about Maple, MapleSim and related products, as well as general interest topics in math and computing."

By the very nature of our community, topics tend to revolve around Maple, but that does not mean that other areas of discourse aren't welcomed.

As @mmcdara mentioned above, we all have the choice to not respond if a topic doesn't suit your fancy. Belittling or demeaning a fellow member or their content adds nothing of value, and simply creates a toxic environment.

The spam button appears for moderators on posts where the poster's reputation is less than 10. When this is clicked, the message is removed immediately and the user is banned from MaplePrimes. This is a powerful feature, so it is limited only to users with a reputation of 10 or lower - we would never want a user with a higher reputation to be accidentally removed.

If a user with a reputation >10 posts spam, they will need to be reported and dealt with manually.


Thanks for your questions, and my apologies for the confusion. The pricing that you see for Maple Personal Edition is indeed correct. However, you will need to contact our customer service team to qualify for this price, and they will provide you with a code that you can use to purchase online.

The best way to contact us is via the Contact Sales form on the Maplesoft web site. If you would prefer to speak with someone in person, that's great as well and you can find the best number to call on our Contact page.


@Christopher2222 Thanks for bringing this to our attention! The question has been restored.


Thanks for pointing this out. We have corrected the issue, and you will notice that link to your homepage now works as it should.

Thank you for alerting us to this problem. All of your content has been restored.

At this point, we are not sure what caused this to occur and we are looking into it. I can also verify that this did not happen to any other account.

Please let us know if you enounter any additional issues.

@Christopher2222 Thanks again for letting us know about the issue. We have published some additional changes to the editor which we think have taken care of the problem.

Would you mind confirming how things are working for you now? Thanks!

Thanks for the details. Could you also let us know what browser & OS you are using?

@Christopher2222 - we made a small change to the editor earlier this week, which we reverted after hearing of your problem. Could you let me know if this corrected the issue that you were seeing?

If it doesn't, any additional details that you could provide would be very much appreciated.


@Carl Love You can currently find the tallies of these member activites on the member profile page. As you scroll down through the various areas, the number associated with each activity (e.g., posts, questions, etc.) is listed in the header for each section.

For example, if you look at your profile page, the various headers show that you have contributed:

  • 15 posts
  • 25 questions
  • 2825 answers
  • 3795 replies
  • 54 favorites


@Christopher2222 We are making good progress with the spam filter. I am hopeful that we'll have it in place within a week!

I wanted to provide an update about 2 fixes we implemented earlier today.

  1. We fixed an issue (mentioned by Ronan in a comment above) that resulted in being jumped to the end of a discussion after pressing 'enter' while writing a comment.
  2. We have addressed the problem where the 'import file' feature was not working correctly. A note that we actually implemented this fix last week, but the code uses Javascript and a browser's default behaviour is to cache the prior version of the code. The change we made today changes the browser's default behaviour so that it will use the updated version of the code.

Thanks again for all your feedback! Please continue to provide your comments, and let us know of any issues as you find them.

@Christopher2222 Thanks for the update. I'm glad that it's working now.
