You linked this post on Meta Stack Exchange: We're testing advertisements across the network (current revision). Notice that the post explicitly says: Due to an already existing agreement, MathOverflow will not be getting ads and is not a part of this experiment. This was also confirmed by a community manager when I asked about this in the MathOverflow ...

I would be interested in acquiring a commemorative mathoverflow mug! If you are planning to get some of them printed, would you be so kind as to keep us informed?

I have reproduced two more figures for which the Mathematica code was given [(1) and (2)], and I have written to Dropbox Support, to inquire if they can restore the broken links. [Most likely the files are still there, but Dropbox removed support for public links in 2017. See this message.] UPDATE: Dropbox customer support answered: "As I do appreciate ...

I couldn't find the images, but the Mathematica notebook he posted still seems to be accessible via the Wayback Machine! I've put a copy temporarily at https://tqft.net/Buoyancy.nb. If someone wants to do the remaining steps, and then let me know that I can take the file down, that would be great.

As Alec Rhea suggests, MathOverflow the corporation and MathOverflow the forum have no stance (and should have no stance) officially on defeating paywalls. It is hard for MathOverflow the community to have a stance on a potentially divisive issue. However, I think the community should have a stance on helping researchers. If there is a community member ...

Possibly this is closer to a comment than to an answer - however, it would probably be too long for a comment. Re: I wonder, how that is possible because if I remember right, questions that have an answer can't be deleted. If a question has more than one answer or at least one answer has an upvote, it cannot be self-deleted. From the FAQ post How does ...

Because this is a publicly viewed forum, in my opinion, there is no moral obligation of the original poster to do anything with the question after it is presented. (Private forums are a different matter.) There are social niceties such as editing to improve the question, responding to answers, and even accepting an answer, but most if not all of these can ...

I am game if anyone is up for a celebratory meet-up in the Netherlands. EDIT: Very likely we will meet up on Friday 27-09-2019 in Utrecht. Let's do this MO style: It would be nice to have some short talks and question/answer sessions. Send me an email if you would like to contribute. Things that could be nice: Discussion of famous MO hard problems (e....

I will be surprised if there's much demand for a get-together in Rochester NY, but if so I'll be glad to host it at my home, which is well set up for large (and small) gatherings.

Now that Alec Rhea has posted an invitation for that part of the Bay Area near Berkeley, I will help with the overflow by posting one for further south, in or near Hayward. I am planning for ten to twenty people. Right now I am listing example locations; as the date nears and more people join in, a final one or two locations will be chosen with mapping ...

If anyone else is in the Berkeley/SF bay area, I'd be game to meet up for beers at any of our wonderful local establishments and celebrate MO.

It would be fun to have the Firday 9/27/19 seminar meeting on the topic of MathOverflow in some way. As the organizer of Boise State University's Friday math seminar, I might ask my colleagues to pick some favorite things on MO, and give 5-10 minute mini-presentations, to fill up an hour that way. Also we might share some of the tweetable math, math jokes, ...
