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.
@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.
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.
@Ron Maimon what do you mean exactly by "the post disappeared"?! I hope there's no auto-deletion in Q2A core, like there is on SE.
I meant it moved to a random position in the questions list, it wasn't bumped anymore.
Nah, I think we do not (yet) have to start deleting, this and the community moderation threads can naturally get pretty long, but I conjecture that thethe number of answers can get large but it should stay finite ...
Ok, hid them. If you find this annoying, unhide. I still think book recommendations belongs in meta, it will clutter up the main site. (I unhid them myself, as it caused the question to disappear for lack of activity)
I hope the following question can be imported if you guys have some spare time, mainly because of the interesting answer I think it will be a good post to have on this site.
Polar Decomposition of a Complex Scalar Field
Rigorous mathematical formalism of particle physics
It is imported now.
Is it possible to import this question?
That's an extremely good question (and answer), imported.
I'd like to see this question imported if possible:
Yes, it is nice. I have imported it :-)
Could you please import my question The Dedekind Eta Function in Physics from my MathOverflow account. I might be of interest here.
Done : )
Is it possible to import this question ?
It is here now ...
I'd like to have this question imported if possible:
It is here and now you have the power to vote on answers ...
BTW it is a really nice technical question and on PhysicsOverflow at least, such questions do not need any homework tag
