Under Construction - What's left?

6 votes

This site is currently still under construction (shout out to Einstein here, for building this amazing site from scratch). This is a list of things that we haven't yet added to the site, just to get things started. If you have things to add that I forgot, please don't answer, but edit the question and add them. Hopefully this will be one single to-do list that will contain everything we have to do.


  • LaTeX not rendering properly in several cases. See this answer, this question, and this question.
  • Close vote and flagging reasons (as described in the close votes meta post)
  • The Q&A and Questions tabs seem to have the same things in them
  • Not many tags - maybe import those from Physics.SE?
  • Full chat room, for moderators and non-moderators, with functionality like that of the SE chat
  • Meta and normal site separation (easier to switch between the two)
  • Remove "banned" users tab
  • Auto-fit of image size (See [this question](http://physicsproblems.nfshost.com/?qa=145/moment-of-force-exerted-by-water-on-tube) where the uploaded image has been literally cropped out while being uploaded)
  • Currently while editing any previous answer there is a constant shaking motion in the preview (with a message at the left bottom saying "Processing Math") which seems quite distracting. We need to stabilize the preview (like in the Stack Exchange sites).
  • Pinging Users: Currently if we reply to a certain message all the people who had participated in the comment thread get notified. Single user pinging should be activated like in the Stack Exchange sites. (Maybe multi-user pinging too?)
  • Optimization for mobile browsers like in Android or IOS.
  • Removing the accounts of bots.
  • Edit system: Whom should we allow to edit posts? Should there be peer review system of edits before an user reaches a certain reputation? This is something to discuss.
  • Close vote/review system - systems for this like on SE; this goes with the previous one.
  • Maybe an Android and IOS app too? (This should be placed last in order of priority.)
  • It seems to be impossible to delete comments, whether you are a moderator or not. This would be a good thing to add (deletion of your own comments for non-moderators, deletion of any comments for moderators).
  • Flagging comments is not yet existent. This would be reasons such as obsolete, spam, not constructive, too chatty, etc, like the ones on SE.
  • Moving comments to chat - this obviously depends on having chat.
  • Make acceptance of an answer allowed only by the user who asked the question.
  • Weird problem - the notifications tab is not showing up centered for one user. It is occurring using chrome on a windows 10 operating system:
  • when adding an image to a question/answer, you are unable to upload the image from your computer
  • Upvote/downvote/answer/comment notifications seem to be showing up twice in the feed.
  • Formatting/in-text links not working in comments


  • Logo
  • Background/site design
  • The current design i.e. white screen on a large grey background should be replaced with a single background. The screen space is getting wasted currently on the extra large grey borders
  • Site name
  • Legalese - terms and conditions
  • Debate over the rep system - what are appropriate amounts? Are there any changes we need to make?
  • Advertising the site on Google and using Search Engine Optimization plugins.

Again, please edit the question and add any things you think of.

Okay , but what about the 1st one ?
how to see hide posts ?
Hiding a post is like deleting it, other users can't see hidden posts.
If I want to see the posts which are hidden by me . Then from where I can see it ?
how to make text bold/italic in the comments ?
