I'd like to see more blogs about Lagrangian mechanics.

 

I've got a couple on my todo list, just need to find the time to write them ;)

For some reason when I go to the sign up page it says that "You do not have the privileges to sign up for a blog".

The requirements to have a blog should be listed on that same page. You need 50 posts to be eligible for a blog.

Ah

I see, I've still got a while to go.

Thanks for the clarification though.

Now that I managed to get enough posts, I'm thinking of making a blog.

Is it okay if I make a few science entries, and a few that aren't really science related, more along the lines of various reviews?

Oh thanks.

I'm only allowed to start one in 13 days, so that will give me enough time to think of a name for the blog. Any recommendations?

"The blog I named via somebody else's suggstion" seems appropriate. :rolleyes:

Swansonts blog is a good example of science and nonscience and just a bit sciencey in my oppinion....

 

Mine is a bit dead atm, very very little free time!

I like to think of blogs as places where you can write your thoughts about your life or other subjects, that allows you to share these thoughts with anyone who might be interested. I don't have any grand ideas of a huge faithful readership; I'm just glad for a place to record my thoughts, and if I manage to entertain or interest a few other people with them, then it's an added bonus.

 

I'm having trouble changing my blog style. Every time I try to navigate around the site admin area to edit things, I keep running into empty pages that say "### Internal Server Error." Am I doing something wrong?

I just have two quick questions:

 

1. Can I change the blog name after I make it?

 

2. Is there any specific reason of why I have to wait 11 more days?

I'm not complaining, just wondering.

 

thanks

I doubt it. If that's still happening (it may have been happening yesterday, but I made a settings change last night that I hope fixed things) I'll have to look through the error logs to find the issue. I had no problem making a post last night.

You can change the name (e.g. "Cap'n Refsmmat's Blog of Doom") but not the URL (e.g. "blogs.scienceforums.net/capn").

 

2. Is there any specific reason of why I have to wait 11 more days?

I'm not complaining, just wondering.

 

thanks

The time delay is a deterrent to keep spammers from using the blogs and to limit blogs to quality members. I may lower it to under a month sometime. We'll see if there are any problems and work from there.

I can make posts, I just can't edit the look of my blog.

I hope I'm not asking an indecent question, but in about an hour and a half, I'll have 10 days till I can start a blog, and I've recently read some good science books, and watched some good science fiction movies, and if it were possible, could I start the blog a little sooner while the ideas are still fresh in my head?

You can start writing the ideas down now and copy/paste them later.

Anybody experiencing those 500 errors on their blogs now?

seems to be good. Actually, I'm not getting those weird cache problems either (you know the ones ctr F5 are supposed to clear).

 

Everything seems to be functioning smoothly. w00t.

500 errors (or any error from 500-599) indicate that there was an error on the server that kept it from sending the page you wanted.

I think I got one 500 error on Saturday, but the edit posted properly anyway. The original page saved and posted without any issues.

Where? If it's happened in the last day or so, I'd like to know about it so I can try to fix it.

Any way to find the number of page hits for the blogs?
