I think we need a few more dark layouts like Cobalt but ones where we can read LaTeX and there should be more colour than just black.

I use ad block plus to do those sort of things.

We need better rules.

I will try to think of some rules which aren't already in place.

I think we need a homework template which includes:

1. Homework Problem

2. Relevant information (formulas, theorems, equations, concepts etc which may be helpful in answering the question)

3. What you have tried so far (even if fruitlessly)

We do have a homework rule but when I ask to show work usually someone else just gives them the answer.

Make a rule that unless someone has made substantial effort, you can't give a full solution.

The measure of any set of rules is the police force that is designed to enforce it...

What should happen to anyone that breaks that rule?

A small warning? If they forget the rule then it's okay, but if they do it intentionally they should be dealt with anyway.

That just happened yesterday or so. I asked a person for some effort and someone else just came in and gave it to him.

That's because we don't have a rule yet.

Better organization

Combine all Personality (in profile) stuff with Display (maybe Signature can go under Personal).

This may sound too simple but small things matter most.
