Math Challenges Proposal on StackExchange!

Hey everyone,

Two months ago, I started a proposal on StackExchange on Mathematical Challenges for "enthusiasts wanting to create and share their own mathematical challenges at all levels, including recreational mathematics."

The link is here: Math Challenges - Area 51 - Stack Exchange

The example questions are questions that would be typical on the site. Please note that they should be original (created by yourself)

Currently, it is in the Definition phase. If there are 60 followers and 40 questions with a score of at least 10, then it will move on to the Commitment phase. After this it will go to beta (where users can actually use the site!)

As of now, it has 64 followers and only 9 questions with a score of at least 10.

If you are interested, I would be very grateful if you could propose more example questions as well as upvoting them to reach the score threshold of 40. To propose a question, you need at least 50 reputation, so the best way to get this is to

  • follow the proposal by entering your email - it will not be displayed to anyone else
  • you will be directed to a new page and press "Confirm and Create Account"
  • Next, click on your profile picture on the top bar of the page
  • Click on 'Send email verification' and verify your email to get 50 rep
  • Finally, go back to the link above and scroll to the bottom. You will see a box where you can enter your example questions!

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask them here, or discuss on the Area 51 Meta site:

Thank you!
