    WE WON!!! PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    I just checked physics.org and see they are in the process of awarding physics website awards. According to their twitter page PF has been nominated in the "Best revision site" category. Nominations close Oct 10th. Get out there and nominate us :)

    What's a revision site?

    We're the best site - period.

    We have LaTeX.

    hmmm not sure we really apply to that. Maybe Q&A category is better. I'm sure they will figure it out and we'll win :)

    I dunno, we do pride ourselves on the homework help forums.

    I'm sure it'd help if we were nominated in another section, too :wink:

    Agreed, or at least best forum by far...

    Could you take time off to invent sex? Wheels and bread are all well and good...

    Re: PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    I did that. I invented ex. Just put an s on it and that's about all it's worth too. So back to the wheel. Some day people will create a huge headache called CERN from the wheel. You'll see.

    Mmm yes all my plastering of PF posters at Math and CS departments has paid off :biggrin:

    I still gotta get the 'OK to post' sticker on them, they tend to stay longer if its approved by student government

    Did you drink my cough syrup??

    Re: PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    I did. You don't have a cough, I have a cough from all this stuff flying off the stone as I chisel out the first wheel.
    Now go out little monster and graffiti the whole city with PF fliers. And don't forget to put one atop the Chrysler Building.

    No idea what pysics.org is, perhaps it is PF that should have its own web awards system, and nominate physics.org in some category?

    Physics.org is a website with the aim to "inspire people of all ages about physics. Let us be your guide and show you the best physics places on the web," run by the outreach team at the Institute of Physics (the UK and Ireland's professional body for physics).

    That I was able to read on their site, but - with all due respect - it doesn't tell anything about the position of the site in the physics community. I guess I am just ignorant here, but I honestly don't know.

    Re: PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    Physics.org does not have the kind of traffic that PF does (alexa ranking of about 500,000, compared to 10,000), but its purpose is to point users to physics resources, so I think this undertaking is definitely something that they are a lot better suited to doing.

    Re: PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    That is certainly true, but they do have some organizational connections I should think and it would be helpful to be recognized.

    Re: PF has been nominated for physics.org award!

    I put in a nomination for best Q&A site two days ago. I hope we win.

    PF is top-drawer.

    I've heard of Physic.org, but never looked at it.
    I am frankly surprised that this is the first "science community" recognition of PF. Given the number of top-ranked professionals in our membership, I always assumed that the esteem was universal. Anyhow, I'm very proud to be associated with it, even though my contributions are meager and primarily humourous. About 1% of the time, I can actually help someone, and that makes it all worth while. (Not to mention the awesome friendships that have arisen from it.)

    That's great news! And it's no small wonder. There ought to be more awards for this forum...like in the Cosmology sub-forum, as a single example: many of those responders I consider to be on the Einsteinium/Hawking level of knowledge, and clear communicators! Congratulations to all!

    There's been no recognition yet. Being nominated is not a recognition, far as I can tell - anyone can nominate any site.

    As I understand it, the first "round" of screening happens late Oct, when the nominees are shortlisted by the judges.

    Bummer... :frown:
    It's a bit ironic. We have the firepower to mount an irresistible lobby campaign, but that's not the scientific approach to the matter. :rolleyes:
