    Does Physics Forums Still have "independent research section"?

    I remember like in 2011-ish physics forums had a section called "independent research section" I can't find it on the main dash, unless it is hidden somewhere :P

    What was the main reason why they removed it if it was every announced?

    Bottom line is it required a lot of moderators' (volunteer, unpaid) time compared to the amount of value it added to the forum.
