Making the Tetration Forum read only
#1
The Tetration Forum is almost twenty years old, but now many of the long term moderators are no longer able to devote much time to the Forum. While I am comfortable serving as a systems administrator, I can't be the only active moderator. It is inappropriate to leave the Tetration Forum unmoderated, so it seems that either we need a a new group of moderators or the Forum should be made read only.

Note: The Tetration Forum is now in read only mode for the time being.

I can't be a moderator, to young tbh and college (idk if it's the right translation, but after high-school, called "Prépa" in France) takes a lot of time. Tho, the website has gained more activity rencently, so it might not be over.

I do not expect the Tetration Forum to resume regular operations again. My decision as acting systems administrator to make the forum read-only has gone without comment from the other moderators and systems administrators. The only concern expressed was for the site to be preserved for historical purposes. Ultimately Bo is the architect and manager of the Tetration Form. I came on board in the context of supplying him and the moderators with systems administration support.

The forum isn't dead, all the software works, you just can't presently post in the mathematical forums. But you can discuss the future of the Tetration Forum here, read and search twenty years of articles and still use the email to other users.

Digital systems have a life cycle and it appears that the forum is at the end of it's natural cycle. It served a need that now appears to have passed. Shanghai46, let me ask you why you became a member? The truth is that the vast majority of members wish to establish themselves as someone with something important to say about tetration or to even become famous. The forum has been held together by a small group of people who hold supporting the tetration community to be more important that being a famous researcher.

Moderators and senior members have been the life blood of this forum. As a long time member and an administrator my review of access logs shows many of the most important contributors to the forum have not logged in for many years. The people with the most important work, IMHO, on the forum are simply no longer available to defend or explain their postings.

I didn't join to be famous or to just drop what I found. I came to discuss, to ask questions and to find answers. Especially, trying to know ans understand all the various tetration methods. For example, I'm aware of the existence of Gottfried and Dimitrii Kouznetsov, and apparently they are well known in this field. Tho I have never been able to grasp their method, or even to find any ways to contactcthem to discuss. They're almost legendary ghosts figures to me.
And what about the website you talked about, where you wanted to put all the methods? Unless I confuse you with someone else. 

So yeah, my objective is mainly to know, discover and understand, but I still don't quite manage to do it.

I'm just sad my only real source of info for my questions is now closed...

Shanghai46, have you checked out my website at tetration.org? I am trying to create an onramp to understanding tetration. I worry that folks who can't understand the material on my website won't be able to understand the more advanced mathematics of the other tetration methods. I suspect that there are literally less than a handful of people who actually understand the all the different methods, and I'm not one of them. Understanding the different tetration methods requires a PhD level of education in mathematics. Study Gottfried's postings as his work and mine are closest to one another and are the most "elementary" approaches. I strongly recommend that you read Bo's postings for an overview of his and Kouznetsov's work. The single best method to understand is Paulsen's which does build on Bo and Kouznetsov's work.

I'm sad to agree. Lately there has been some spam. And without proper active moderation we risk to damage the forum and its historical purpose.
Maybe, user should earn the right to post. Not on competence basis, but on a proof of acceptance of netiquette and in absence of the will to vandalize/spam the threads. But even this would need a team of moderators.
