Physics Forums History

  1. Jun 30, 2008 #1
    Over the years we've gotten many questions regarding the technicals and history of Physics Forums. With the help of the library we now have setup a history page.

    I'm sure to add on to it as I remember things. If anyone has a story or something significant that I forgot, please let me know and I'll add it.

    Perhaps an entry on Physics forums medals, and what they mean would be useful, since the question has come up on several occasions.

    I don't know if that really fits well into this topic though. Hmm. Maybe I'll start one an article on it and see how people respond.

    I think a lot of people have questions about that. Some people think it's automatic after a certain number of posts, and it's not, it's about knowledge and the willingness to help.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I think this is because a lot of other web forums award members based on post counts. I'm working on a library article for this. Give me a half hour and I should have it done.

    OK! You'll find my article in the library moderation queue. Tell me what you think before I approve it, just to make sure their are no errors.
