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?

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.

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

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.

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

1. Ganesh's daily posts

2. Posts in the "Members Only" section
