I am glad you wish to contribute to our community. One of the best ways to do this is by asking good questions, as noted in the comments. Be clear, concise, and considerate of future readers who may have a similar problem but not understand your circumstance as well as you do. You will find that many of the best questions are posted by users who do not ...

Try to hit 5,000 reputation exactly, and take a picture. Or pick a humorous or interesting number for your milestone: Also, the real "celebration" starts at 10,000 -- celebration for the moderators that is, because you'll see all the deleted junk and (1) have sympathy for us (2) accept the mantle of responsibility for reviewing our delete actions. :...

First off, I am really touched that a lot of people care about my well-being. Thank you, all! The amounts I have gotten will not only pay for clinical tests, but apparently my entire treatment course of four months (assuming my doctor does not tack in a new prescription based on my test results). I will be getting tested in a few hours, and I hope it goes ...

The problem with presenting a set of styles and asking someone to choose one, is that the choice depends on the personal tastes of each user and I'm loathe to suggest that there is only one right way to follow. However, we, as a community, have identified certain preferable characteristics in code blocks (I don't have references for these, but it's based on ...

As I have already posted in chat, you guys are awesome and I am truly touched. Within the few days over the Easter weekend, you donated over 1000 Euro. As you might have noticed, there is no donation from me yet. As I have to transfer this from my own bank account anyway, it would have been a loss to first donate it via Paypal and then get the money back. ...

Probably a combination of many factors. I will list some differences between SE sites (M SE in particular) and Wolfram Community, which I consider important in this context: Historically M SE (this site) is a successor of Stack Overflow Mathematica tag, which was the place where the original smaller group of enthusiasts had enough time to gather and build a ...

It seems not custom that the newly elected says some words but I will do it anyway. I thank everyone who voted for their trust and I will do my best to help the community. This is my first night as a moderator and as you all can imagine I'm quite anxious. I double-check every mouse click I do, always afraid to accidentally delete our beloved site. I'm sure ...

I'm not sure how widespread this neologism is used, but it does seem to be the way things are going. I wouldn't mind adding it to the logo as long as it takes second-billing, like: Could be a harmless goodwill gesture. Edit halirutan: A more suitable preview with the suggestion of Szabolcs to make the second line not all caps (note that the logo and the ...

Can anyone shed any light on why Wolfram would want to create its own Community Q&A forum after witnessing the remarkable growth and success of Mathematica.SE? perhaps because the remarkable growth and success of Mathematica.SE opened their eyes to the benefits of having a dedicated online community that can serve as a poor man's "Premier support"? ...

IMO, best answered by the community. My attempt is primarily so we aren't starting from a blank slate. Guidelines for helping others help you with your code ordered according to importance for reproducibility and attracting help. Try to focus in on the issue. Do not copy all the contents of your notebook. Do not try to explain all the irrelevant parts. ...

status-completed The syntax highlighting colors have changed. Here's a screenshot of some code taken from this post. Old: New: System symbols have gone from black to blue, brackets from black to dark red, and user symbols have gone from blue to black. The old styles are closer to what is seen in-product, and it would be nice to have them back if ...

Tags should be used for categorization, not for giving additional information. There are bugs which are present in all versions from 8-10, which already takes up 3 tags out of the 5 maximum. One more is taken up by bugs, leaving only one more. Tagging for each version will force us to remove more useful tags from the question, which is bad. Not ...

This question was discussed a lot when the site was originally proposed. In fact, the SE team even rejected the proposal at one point on the grounds that it overlapped SO too much. However, a great post sums up the reason for the site's existence (and, along with community support, likely had much to do with the reversal of the rejection).

SciDraw – Publication quality scientific figures SciDraw (by Mark Caprio) is the successor of LevelScheme. It is designed for the creation of publication quality scientific figures. It requires more work to set up a figure than with Mathematica's standard graphics and plotting functions (it's not for quick and dirty plotting), but it also gives much more ...

Personally, I think these questions should be allowed and for a number of reasons I want them to be allowed. Why should they be allowed – the objective part Questions like this are in line with the spirit of the site: this site is for the users of Mathematica and for the problems they encounter while using Mathematica. Package installation problems are ...

Kuba I don't think I am a good candidate with respect to human interactions but there is a lot to do content-wise which I think I enjoy and do anyway. How would you deal with a user who produced a steady stream of valuable answers, but tends to generate a large number of arguments/flags from comments? The only reasonable answer is "it depends". ...
