Request questions from sites on the StackExchange networks that are on-topic here too, to be imported here. Moderators may then import the question.

This thread can not only be used to request importing single questions, but PhysicsOverflow members who like some or all of their (for PhysicsOverflow on topic) SE posts imported can say so in a corresponding answer here too. Any other specific list of questions is fine too.

I will mention some questions we listed here too, if I am at a second look not 100% certain about importing them and interpret the upvotes as agreement with getting them.

I mean all of those questions should have been ok on Physics SE, but I am sometimes not sure if other people think they are a good fit for PhysicsOverflow too.

I have recategorised this under "Public Official Threads" so users can request their posts to be imported as per your addendum.

To keep this page from growing to infinity,should we delete the questions regarding those that actually got imported?

@RonMaimon I agree, but hide, not delete (delete erases from the database itself).

@Dilaton On SE, answers can be ordered by time if one needs to, but not here.

I meant it moved to a random position in the questions list, it wasn't bumped anymore.

@RonMaimon hiding is ok But concerning references and study material (concerning advanced topics) they newer cluttered any site on SE (not the ones I was interested in) so they will not here either. They were considered legitimate in TP.SE and they are not forbidden on MathOverflow. So please dont introduce this for (advanced) students and people who want to learn about a new topic obstructive SE point of view (in SE they always said you can ask in chat which means forget about it because there are no physics people in chat)

ok, but the point is that it shouldn't come with rep, and it's extremely easy to do, and it only needs to be done once in each topic, so perhaps when reviews are up, it can be done in reviews. You can ask the same question on each topic, I think it's best to make a literature review for each tag on reviews, so that each topic has a set of references people can add to. It's just not effort to find literature.

It might not seem graduate-level but I searched in several books (including Light and Video Microscopy by Randy Wayne) and I couldn't find a satisfactory explanation.

The question could probably go into our category Applied Physics, I will wait a bit to see what others think.

@Dilaton I think it's OK. Our policy should be to import, and then close if it's off-topic.

Thanks !
