Or will that get me a message deleted and a note from the admin?
Keep your personal, speculative, ideas in the blogs please.
Do I need to create a blog or is there a link.
Thank you very much.
i think this is a free country, so feel free to publish your idea or i think there is a 'Personal ideas' forum over here.
hit "blog" just beneath the "Physics Forums" logo up there.
Thank you I posted it in a blog :)
I have never had a blog before. :)
Note: Personal theories are not permitted on PF either in the main forums or in blogs. We have an Independent Research Forum specifically for discussion of such new ideas and theories, provided that they meet certain guidelines. We invite you to submit your ideas there.
how come logandiez is still around in the blog sphere?
If you find someone promoting a personal theory in the blogs, please report it.
PF is not a "free country." It's a privately owned forum, and the owner makes the rules. When you register here you agree to abide by the Physics Forums Global Guidelines. The relevant section is the one titled Overly Speculative Posts.
It depends on your idea of "idea". If it's a theory that doesn't follow mainstream scientific thought, you have to back it up with the same scientific rigor you'd expect in a published journal for example. Nothing over the top. Of course, don't get "idea" confused with "question"! We welcome questions here!
If you mean idea like a simple idea, "hey, if i put an engine in the BACK of my vehicle as opposed to the front, would I generate more torque", that's fine :).
The difference is that the blog here is a personal journal, it is not for active debate or discussion, that is what the forum is for.
So if there is discussion in the blogs, one should report them as well?
Blogs are not for homework or discussion of scientific and technical matters, but personal matters. Exposition of personal scientific theories, especially those at odds with the mainstream are not permitted. The PF Guidelines (to which each member agrees in consideration of participation) apply to the blogs as well.
I have reperted such threads and no action was taken against those.
Can I read in the PF rules what you just wrote Astronuc?
We do have some statements in the rules, for example:
Admittedly, these are subject to interpretation, which is why we are actively discussing the issue. Once we are done, we will clarify the Rules to remove some of the ambiguity.
It depends on how you are asking. There is a difference between a:
"Why can't we use the Casimir force to make a perpetual motion machine?" question
and the crackpot rantings of someone who believes they have disproved relativity/quantum theory.
I am looking forward to the new rule formulations :-)
