Problems without solutions - [Tristan]

I have been browsing problems that do not yet have an "approved solution".

Sometime ago, a small team of us sought to address "Problems without Solutions" (for a better name).

This exercise was convened by Tristan , one of our more recent scholars.

The project was very good, accomplishing many of his goals.

Now, as I look back over recent problems since that time, we have many where the proposer has not posted a solution when both the problem has been solved and the solution resides on the Perplexus server.

I am firstly posting this as a potential reminder that some of us have problem solutions to be addressed.

Secondly, I guess I am readdressing Tristan's thoughts at the time [they are not, unfortunately available if you see 5 Forums]. Essentially he was asking, and there was some comment, about what should be the protocol of Scholars in posting solutions where:

a. they are deserved, over a length of time,

b. they have been on site for such a length that we'd all like to see a solution,


c. though, not solved, the solution deserves to be published.

Don't accept this as 'quoting' Tristan. I believe these were however his sentiments at the time and why the project went ahead.

My concern now is, having addressed those 'problems' to a limited degree, how might we progress?

Re: Problems without solutions - [Trista

I think it would be nice if we could stick some of the problems in an "unsolved" queue -- such that no adequate solution was given. Most of mine fit into that category, as do most of the first ones on the queue.

In general, there are so many problems without solutions there (solved or unsolved), that ones that have one or part of one get lost.

I once suggested a similar thought to levik, a bit like the "Bonus" question that comes up whenever you refresh the home page but he wasn't up to that.
