This forum has been really inactive lately...

I've noticed that some sections of the site are really inactive e.g. Coder's Corner, Science HQ, and Math(s) Teaching Resources.

We can make them active again by posting there, right?

But nobody is (I did in Coder's Corner about hexapawn, actually).

I've posted about this before, as well as transitioning to a different forum software, seven years ago.

Let m,n be positive integers. When m/n is expressed as a decimal, three consecutive digits after the decimal point are 1,6, 7 in order. Find the smallest possible value of n.

Re: This forum has been really inactive lately...

I posted a thread about "Formal Methods in Mathematics" but nobody seemed to be bothered

Re: This forum has been really inactive lately...

I've looked at the admin controls and we don't seem to have a 'move post to another topic' option. I think it exists in FLUXBB but you have to download extra modules.  So I'll re-post it in Exercises.

As regards to underused areas of the forum and users who seems to have given up posting, in both respects that's up to folk.  A topic gets as much action as members want.

Nobody seems to be bothered about areas like Coder's Corner, Euler Avenue. and Formulas now.

Re: This forum has been really inactive lately...

Fortunately, some members are active now, like Agnishom, Mathegocart and relatively new members  like 666 bro, pi_cubed too are active.

An Administrator bob bundy is always around helping members, and Moderator zetafunc is also doing his best.

1. Ganesh's daily posts
2. Posts in the "Members Only" section
