In case you don't follow Tim Gowers' blog, the latest post talks about MO quite a bit, among other interesting things...
He has a new post on his blog. It seems to me that it should be fairly easy to implement a first approximation of a preprint feedback site using the mathoverflow software. Namely one can have a new site or a section of mathoverflow.net where instead of questions people post descriptions and links to their preprints and instead of answers they get feedback on their papers. The point system of mathoverflow is slightly different from what Tim Gowers suggests, but on the other hand I don't think that it is possible to create the perfect way to award points before some working implementation actually exists.
Do you think that making such a site makes sense? Would the people behind mathoverflow be willing to do it? It seems to me that the changes to the mathoveflow backend should be minimal. Actually one could already use mathoveflow.net to post links to preprints if the rules allowed it.
as usual, we can't actually change the backend in any way; it's not our software.
That said, it seems at least plausible that we could explicitly allow "request for comments" questions on arXiv preprints. I suspect that this would in practice work very badly (in particular, the fraction of "requests" coming from the crank section of the arXiv would be unpleasantly high), but I'd be interested to at least have a discussion of the pros and cons.
+1 to Angelo.
In particular, if one wishes to (as in fact I do) to be up-to-date with what is happening on arXiv, one can anyway subscribe to the daily-mailings of arXiv (in subject categories one is interested in). And, some people include in the meta-data of their preprints the explict request for comments. Of course, in that case the comments would not be public, but actually not sure if this is good or bad, yet if one really wishes to 'visibly' comment on an arXiv preprint one can: one just would write a blogpost, and there will be a trackback on arXiv (if I understand correctly).
Has anyone seen Hypothes.is?

@User: this forum uses markdown. You can google for markdown syntax to learn how to add links.
@Jose Figueroa, thank you. The link was cute. Now I can't stop "markdowning" and making examples Hypothes.is.
maths? mathematics? two times?
Sorry for resurrecting the post but there is an ambitious project EuDML (pdf here) which is geared towards making (European) Mathematical literature freely available.
