Question Database Needs Your ContributionsI have spent a lot of time and effort working on the software to support the Question Database, and now it is ready (I hope) for a big input from everyone. I am continuing to develop the software, but your help is needed to make the questions. Questions Needing Attention Add a Question But you can also try: Make a Quiz (All Questions) Make a Quiz (Checked Questions) And give feedback at the bottom of any question that has a problem. But another way to add questions is from this forum, by clicking on "Make Question" at the bottom left hand corner of any post (as mentioned on this thread: Question Bank ) I have begun this process by gradually going through each post in the Help Me! forum for 2005. If someone would like to nominate a Year (or even a month) of the Help Me! topic that they would like to make questions from, please step forward! My HOPE is to have thousands of good quality Questions for people to practice on. Just a few questions added or checked per week from every regular member would soon see a really useful resource.

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsThere are currently 246 questions on the database but none of them have been checked. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20090601 08:35:40
Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsI've just signed up as "mathsy", and I'd be happy to help check the questions. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20090601 09:38:39

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20090601 09:43:26

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsHi bobbym .... something odd happened, you had no password at all. I wonder why? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20090601 19:08:51

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsThat seems all perfect. Eeek! Why is it failing for you? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20090604 16:23:56

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsThanks bobbym and mathsy, I notice that we are starting to get some "checked" questions now! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #18 20090629 07:40:41
Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsUpdate: We now have 263 Questions, but only 117 have been checked. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #19 20090629 08:49:41

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsI shall post more problems in the near future. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #22 20090629 17:45:57

Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsSure, I wouldn't, bobbym! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #24 20090629 20:52:53
Re: Question Database Needs Your ContributionsI've been checking some as well. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #25 20090630 02:26:14
