I think it might be cool to have a member contribution forum, where, if you feel like writing an article, you can submit it for all to read, and mods/Mathsisfun could select good ones every now and then and format them into Mathsisfun quality articles!

They could even be about cool theorems or papers you would like to share. Even though we have 'This is Cool', it doesn't quite fulfil the purpose I think.

Actually, it would probably go in this forum. But lets face it, how many people are going to writing articles for MathsIsFun?

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

I am happy to put up good articles, like Ricky's two: http://www.mathsisfun.com/sphider/searc … h&search=1

well i guess the problem is there aren't that many members who are experienced/knowledgable enough to write good articles. If they're used for teaching the author should really know it inside and out as not to mislead the reader.

Well, sometimes you are knowledgeable enough! People need to know how to do simple things, too.
