I get that on PF we value real scientific discussion, however I do have some suggestions to make this place more welcoming. These, I have noticed, attack the roots of problems that some people have with PF. 1. Have a separate forum for personal theories. A lot of people have them. While you may think it is nonsense a lot of people value it as a learning source. The bigger one is 2. Less ridicule...for everything. Sometimes on PF, those of us who are less educated say something an expert would deem stupid, such as throwing in a bad term or just outright getting a concept wrong. Making these mistakes make you subject to all types of ridicule on the forum, such as people talking to you as if you were an idiot, people being very rude to you (sometimes outright calling you an idiot) and even a warning for spreading false information. While PF is a wonderful community, this sometimes makes me stray from it, and I can tell from many posts that it does the same to other people. As for the part about adding a bad term in, people will spend an entire post saying that you can't, for example, "derive" the Schrodinger equation. However, when I ask how to derive the Schrodinger equation, you definitely know what I mean: I want to know where it comes from, how Schrodinger came up with it, etc. People get so caught up on the technicalities that they focus their entire post on them and not answer the implied question. This is just my feedback on problems with PF so that the moderators and Greg can make this site a better place (not that it is not great, but as with everything there is always room for improvement). Thanks!
