  • Updated to MediaWiki 1.19 and changed some infrastructure. -- joe

April 1, 2012

  • Now the Riemann Hypothesis has finally been solved (who would have guessed that it would be soluble relying solely upon analysis of elementary functions?) someone's going to have to go and post it up. I'll get there but I'm bogged down in tidying up the Relation Theory category. --prime mover

March 11, 2012

  • Migrating to a different RSS renderer since the one we currently use seems to no longer be maintained. It appears an upstream version in 1.19 is being supported, going to switch to that. --Joe (talk)

February 12, 2012

  • Trying out the new 2.0 beta of MathJax. --Joe===November 30, 2011===
  • Check out the forthcoming AI Mashup Challenge - fancy a mathematics conference in sunny Greece?

November 10, 2011

  • Still getting a lot of what I think are spam accounts being created (since the email confirmation messages all bounce back). Trying to combat this by checking all IP's against SORBS. --Joe (talk) 11:50, 10 November 2011 (CST)

November 9, 2011

  • So, spam sucks! We're moving back to a user based, email authenticated edit system ... effective immediately. If anyone has doesn't like this, let me know. --Joe (talk) 05:49, 9 November 2011 (CST)

November 7, 2011

  • 600 registered users. Less than 2 months for 100 more users to join, but quite a few of those were spamming accounts and have now been blocked. --prime mover 17:11, 7 November 2011 (CST)

September 30, 2011

  • Using ReCaptcha for account creation and anonymous posts. Hopefully this will cut down on some of the spam we've been seeing recently. --Joe (talk) 16:36, 30 September 2011 (CDT)

  • Happy Pi Day to the $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ community! --Cynic (talk) 20:21, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

  • $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas! (And a happy Taiwanese Constitution Day for all the non-Christians) --Cynic-----(talk)

November 2, 2008

  • $e^{3\ln{10}}$ proofs! --Andrew

October 19, 2008

  • Added new buttons to the editing toolbar. So far it's only two, but I hope to expand to have some more useful ones. In order to see them you may have to clear your browsers cache. To do this in firefox press Crtl+R. If anyone has suggestions for new buttons let me know.--Joe
  • We now have our own template for creating arrays of equations. Check it out here --Joe

October 16, 2008

  • Over 800 proofs and 80 users. --cynic

October 9, 2008

  • Removed the category suggestion feature, it was more trouble then it was worth. --Joe
  • Added MultipleUpload extension so that more then one file can be uploaded at a time! Have to do it from this page though. --Joe

October 8, 2008

  • I added some new code to the stub template so that you can add a description of what needs to be done. --Joe 02:23, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

October 2, 2008

  • And then there were 700 proofs. --cynic 01:21, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

September 22, 2008

  • 600 proofs and counting ... --Matt Westwood 19:49, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

September 20, 2008

  • Updated the program with renders $\LaTeX$. We now have everything that is on this page. --Joe 14:48, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

September 14, 2008

September 8, 2008

  • The $\LaTeX$ issue has been fixed! --Joe

September 7, 2008

  • Changed the site namespace from "Proofwiki.org" to "ProofWiki". I fixed up most of the inconsistent links. It shouldn't be too hard to get them all changed. --Joe
  • I removed the TableEdit extension as I don't think anyone was using it and since you could only edit tables which were created with it, it was not much use. If anybody was using it and would like me to put it back, let me know. --Joe
  • SiteGround(our host) has investigated the issue and apparently the program which converts postscript files to png's is broken. There working on fixing it now, and it should be back up and working soon! --Joe 20:06, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

September 6, 2008

  • I copied the site to my home computer and set it up there. No problems, so I've emailed the host again, and hopefully they can figure something out. --Joe 00:49, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I've narrowed it down to the program which converts the $\LaTeX$ postscript files to png's. I've noticed this also effects general image resizing. Getting close! --Joe 17:32, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I've created a new copy of the site using a backup from August 29, 2008. This version doesn't work either, so I've emailed the host again. My guess is that they may have changed a path, or modified a file, that has had an effect on the wiki. Hopefully we'll get this fixed soon. --Joe 13:47, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

September 4, 2008

  • So I still haven't been able to get the site fixed yet. So far I've figured out that the software used which turns the $\LaTeX$ into png's is working fine, but the site software doesn't know this, I'm still looking for a solution to solve this. Anyone who has MediaWiki skills and has any ideas please e-mail me. --Joe 00:07, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

September 3, 2008

  • The $\LaTeX$ rendering software is not working correctly, the host server is looking into its sudden break (since it's not a problem on our side). Hopefully this will be fixed soon. --Joe 23:42, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Aug 24, 2008

  • I will upgrade the site to the new version of MediaWiki once I get back from vacation. --Joe
  • I found some free time today and upgraded the site, seems to be working good so far. Let me know if there are any problems. --Joe 23:25, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Pre August 24,2008

  • This might have happened yesterday or the day before, but 300 proofs! --RickettsAM 12:44, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Upgraded site to latest version of MediaWiki. There are some neat new features we can take advantage. For instance the search bar now has a drop down menu! --Joe 23:29, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
  • 200 proofs! --Joe 13:58, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
  • We now have a community bulletin board, please post whatever you feel is math related or site related. Not really sure how this page will be used yet, hopefully everyone else can figure that out! --Joe 17:21, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • New Help page for questions. If you have a question about editing that you would like answered, post it here--Joe 16:32, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • The Community Portal has had a major update. Check it out, and feel free to add to it (or spruce it up)! --RickettsAM 16:15, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Added new template for things that need explanation. For more information go here. --Joe 16:01, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  • 100 proofs! --Joe 11:45, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Added chat capabilities --Joe 19:14, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Default skin changed, to see effect you may have to change the setting in your preferences page --Joe 17:14, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Removed Main_Page title from the Main Page --Joe 17:10, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Reference's now work, check the help page for details --Joe 15:33, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Digg ProofWiki!
  • New page for pages that need to be tidied.
  • New page for stub articles and articles that need proofreading.
  • Check out the sandbox!
  • Section editing now works! --Joe 00:47, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • The site is now on reddit. Please vote it up, hopefully we'll get more contributors.--Joe 21:05, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
  • The search bar on the left panel can now suggest search results. This does not yet work for other search bars.--Joe 16:39, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
  • We haven't quite worked out all the kinks, or the specific formatting/categorization issues. People are adding new proofs, and should continue to do so. A lot of formatting and categorization specifics and guidelines should become clear once we have a body of work to work with. So thank you, everyone, for your contributions, and keep at it. :) - RickettsAM 22:38, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
