PhysicsOverflow is meant to be some kind of a rebirth of the untimely passed away Theoretical Physics SE and a little physics brother of MathOverflow. Apart from the high-level Q&A, PhysicsOverflow offers a Reviews section, dedicated to discuss and peer review (mostly ArXiv but other sources can be considered too) papers publicly and "in real time". It should be some kind of a last precious place in the internet, where people can seriously discuss all by the real-world physics community as mainstream accepted physics topics, without getting continuously attacked, annoyed, and disturbed by crackpts, cranks, and trolls.

Hi Dilaton. Do you know where Ron Maimon  is on the net now? He seems to have been blocked  in many venues. Anna

Hi Dilaton. I have problem answering questions since none of the tools appear to be available (e.g. links, italics, etc) that I always remember. Additionally live preview or preview do not work and the answer window appears tiny although I can expand it eventually. Something is wrong. Not sure if it is my problem alone or not but I guess someone has to check it.

Hi Dilaton.  I am interested in reviewing this paper https://arxiv.org/abs/1701.06567 but I am confused on how to submit it for review. Any help?

Could you delete one for me? Thanks a lot!

Yes, it was submitted twice, simply because I could not find my paper and I thought it was unsuccessful and did it again. Cannot I find my paper on my personal page?

I cannot even find my papers submitted (from arxiv). Where can i find it? I want to claim authorship of my paper.

Dear Dilaton, two of my questions from mathoverflow were just imported to PO. Unfortunately they are assigned to the user Josh Burby instead of JoshBurby (no space). Is there anything I can do to combine the two accounts?
