That is regrettable. I think MHB was a very good forum for its target audience, with high quality facilities for mathematical writing and effective non-intrusive moderation. I would rather have seen MHB exist separately alongside PF.Big news!
MathHelpBoards.com (MHB) has merged with PF! Welcome MHB members!
Lots of dust still, please be patient. (I know some inline equations are not rendering)
Here is what this means for us:
- MHB math threads have been moved to our relevant math forums using an MHB prefix. A few forums have been dumped into General Math. I'll work on permanent homes for these areas/threads soon!
- MHB users have either been merged with PF members if emails and usernames match. If not, then duplicate usernames will have a 1 after the MHB username. DM me if you need your MHB username merged with your PF username.
- We've gained a POTW initiative run by MHB members @anemone and @Euge
- MathHelpBoards.com will eventually redirect to PF
Personally, I'd also have liked MHB to continue, but I also realize that traffic was too low and an end to it was inevitable. As such I'm happy that PF was willing to take us in and to see our history preserved. I actually think Greg and Jameson did an amazing job there. Thanks Greg and Jameson!That is regrettable.

The prefix is only for threads migrated from MHB, and threads in PF are not supposed to use it. Maybe @Greg Bernhardt could do something to restrict/prevent that prefix from being used/showing up?Since it shows up as a thread level instead of A, I or B, do you think it makes sense to add it to the page describing those levels? Would make things much less confusing I think. Just a thought.
