About:

Was among the founders here, moderator from mid-2014 to late-2015 and mid-2016 - present. I also operate the dimension10.admin account for admin-only (non-moderational) duties.

In the past, I had tried to start a wiki on mathematics and physics. It never really took off (it has exactly 4 users, none are active any longer). If you think you can promote it better, and steer it to the right path, feel free to write me an email at abhimanyu.ps@outlook.com, asking for admin rights there.

Note: If you leave a message on my wall, I will reply on your wall. If I leave a message on your wall, please also reply on my wall (or reply on your wall and inform me on mine) so I receive a notification that you have replied to my message.

Hey! I am a big fan of your work but I was wondering if you could make a section based on more basic Physics topics. I could recommend this to 100's of other people if you would execute this

Why did you downvote the closing of the "chronometric distance" nonsense? It really is a trivial confusion regarding how you measure length--- you just choose a frame, construct the frame points, and measure length. It's obviously a person with a pet idea that length is tied down to the SI standard definition of a meter, when it is nothing of the sort.

Well, duplicating accounts for ex-TPSE users is OK since this site serves their interests, but for others, they seem to have been set up without their consent: "This user is not yet participating on PhysicsOverflow, but we hope he will)"

Looks all very bizarre to me.

It already exists:  
http://www.physicsoverflow.org/4534

(By the way, it says "Delete" votes, but it's really just "hide" votes, since something that will actually be erased from the database (duplicated imports, spam, etc.) would not need to go through the same procedure.

Is it possible to have a "request for hiding low-quality answers" question? There you can discuss whether an answer fits the site, and allow the author to make a case. I didn't want to do it, because you know whether it already exists, and the proper tags, and so on, since you did all the rest of these.

Hi dim10, you should take the cc-by-sa-3.0 comment seriously, it is not clear if we can make dummy users without saying that they are dummy.

I know your intentions are good, but this is not enough, it is also important to avoid the hint of possible future abuses, when you are in power, it is difficult to see the implied threats, but they have a chilling effect on speech even before any actual action is taken. I am not criticizing you, thanks for hiding the comment.

@Ron Maimon ok removed, I didn't mean to threaten, I was asking him not to try and defame us by using such words inappropriately.
Apr 11, 2014 by dimension10
As an admin, your request to physicsnewbie to stop using words like "censorship" carry an air of threat. Please don't ask him things like this--- he should be free to complain of censorship (or whatever else). Is it possible to hide your comment regarding this?
Apr 11, 2014 by Ron Maimon
Ok, now they aren't duplicate anymore. Did you delete?
