No.
You can sort the forum (on this board) alphabetically and none of the topics is so dramatically long as you are suggesting.

Re: My blog about my PE journey.

hk's nemesis :) (Bai Li). I hope it is pure ignorance about Greek mythology that makes you call Luckytoilet 'my nemesis' otherwise I have to consider this remark an unforgivable offense. There is nothing funny about this remark that justifies a smiling face. Please read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

Re: posting solutions of solved problems

Only if you have something new to add that wasn't mentioned in the other posts. Or if you have a program in a language that isn't in the thread already.

Re: Problem 728

You're right.
However, after the correct answer was on the site the number of correct answers grew rather fast.
The difficulty is measured as the speed of solutions not the number of them.

Re: Problem 728

10 weeks after publication a problem is moved from recent problems to the archives.
At that moment a difficulty assessment is automatically calculated.
If there are less than 100 solvers the assessment is temporary.

Re: Unit cube roots in number theory

if $p\mod 3=1$ there are three solutions, if $p\mod3 =2$ there is one solution to the equation $a^3=1 \mod p$

Re: Problem 034

Please don't start a new topic for a problem if there exists one already.

Personally I think the choice mathematicians made is not arbitrary, on the contrary.

Same problem here. (both on Chrome and Edge)
Other pages using Mathjax load perfectly. Even the second page of the forum for Problem 497 (View Problem) loads without delay.
The page hangs in the middle of the post by nhmllr.

Re: problem 452

You can find out by trying both options for F(10,10).
Somewhat higher in this thread you can even find smaller cases to verify which of the two options holds.
