http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/pythagorean-triples.html - Spelling mistake at the bottom of the page, next to the 'Here's More' section. Nothing major though. smile

It says 'Pythagoraen triples - Basics'.

Re: Our New Forum

I spent 1.5 hours solving the "Who owns the fish?" and 30 mins solving the "Who owns the crococile?". Well, it's real good practice!!!

Who owns the fish: German
Who owns the crocodile: Hannah

Hopefully I did not get them wrong!

Re: Our New Forum

What do we plan to do when the domain expires, BTW?

I know it's a long time away, and not necessarily relevant, but I just couldn't help asking.

And what does the future hold for MathsIsFun.com? I can sense that it's going to be something good.

Question: How come 'PM' turns into a capital 'p' with with a lowercase 'm', when they both should be capitals? I think it is part of the word censoring.

Re: Our New Forum

Nope, nothing to do with the word censoring. I just looked at the list of censored words and there's nothing there that would do anything to PM.

And.

It looks OK to me anyway. hmm

Testing again:

It only happens if you put a full stop after the letters.

Re: Our New Forum

Conclusion: I'm cursed.

It's appearing fine for you...but not for me:

P.M.

A bug, maybe?

OK, this is weird. Now it's appearing fine for me, but it still shows the mistake in the original post. I'll try the refresh button.

Re: Our New Forum

Are you sure you didn't just type P.m. by mistake? If I quote you, I see P.m. there as well, which implies that that's what you wrote. Any changes the forum makes happen only in displayed posts, not in the quotes. For example, if I say:

"Little Jimmy drags up his orange juice loudly."

Then the forum filter inadvertantly changes one of those words, but you can see what I meant by quoting me. I'd have thought it'd be the same for you and your P.m., but it's not.

No, I had made no mistake - It happened in Ganesh's 'Oral Puzzles' thread, and it's happening hear now.

No idea why...

Replace the "o" with an "a".

Found under the I section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

Found under the M section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

Whitespace in the word 'and'.

Found under the P section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

No space needed after "Deviation". tongue Found: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

EDIT 6: Another mistake;

Whitespace in "Fractions".

Found under the S section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

Found under the O section here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/math.html

EDIT: And another;
