    Hello MHB Community,

    As many of you already know, we encourage members of our community to share information of a tutorial nature in our "Math Notes" forum, and that we have asked that be followed.

    Part of these guidelines is the creation of a commentary thread which links to the tutorial thread, and then a link to the commentary thread in the original post of the tutorial thread. While this is a good system allowing a tutorial thread to preserve its flow uninterrupted while at the same time allowing for comments and questions, the process of following through with this is tedious at best.

    So, we have created a custom feature whereby new threads posted in our "Math Notes" forum will auto-generate a commentary thread, and the post content of the first post in the tutorial thread will be appended with information containing a link to the commentary thread. This will make creating threads in our "Math Notes" forum much simpler and more straightforward.

    When you go to our "Math Notes" forum, you will now see the button to begin a new thread says "+ Post New Tutorial":



    When you create a "Math Notes" tutorial thread, upon clicking "Submit," you will see the following redirect message:



    Your post content will be appended as follows:



    And the commentary thread will have the following format:



    In order to avoid any posts in "Math Notes" threads by anyone other than the thread author, no one except the author (and senior staff) will be able to reply to such threads. Everyone has been great about following our guidelines regarding using the commentary threads for comments, we just felt it would be good to include this safeguard.

    We feel automating these necessary but tedious steps might even encourage more people to share such useful content. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to post in this thread.

    -MHB Staff

    Excellent work, Mark! I'm very much hoping that our users will be encouraged by this development to post a lot more Math Notes, and that MHB will house a veritable encyclopedia of math!

    Although the actions of the senior staff is a team effort, the credit for the original idea goes to Ackbach. And anemone spent a great deal of time beta testing, helping me to eliminate many bugs.
