    Hmm... you've obviously been on here longer than 5 months :p:

    But I would tend to agree.

    I'm also surprised that no-one has mentioned Simba yet (maybe because he isn't so active nowadays? :dontknow:)

    I have added a poll, please only vote 3 three times with one vote for each category.
    Due to TSR limitations, I can't have more than 16 users on the poll so sorry to whomever I may have missed out as everyone on here deserves equal respect.

    DFranklyn is too old. Isn't he married and like in his 40's. MrShifty is clearly the best mathematician on this forum.

    Anyway, how can you tell who is the best on this forum? Its like most of the people on the maths section are too young. Its like the book about Smale I was reading, students where complaining that he was wrong to Lang as Smale was a lecturering on differential topology. Lang said to the students that althought you are locally right, Smale is always globally right.

    So their might be a few people in this forum that are always locally right, but you don't know if they see the big picture.

    P.S. Where the hell is MrShifty? Also, DFranklyn isn't a grad student. He's a computer scientist (I think).

    I didn't read that it was a multichoice poll so only voted DFranklin. I would probably add Swayum and Unbounded to the list, but there are some other very good mathematicians on here.

    How can you be too old to be a good mathematician? :facepalm:

    Old age side effects. Plus I'm pretty sure there is a strong correlation between age and mathematical ability.

    P.S. I'm pretty sure Mr M wasen't a grad student. If he was then how did he become a maths teacher?

    P.P.S. This thread is annoying. Most mathematician on this forum, if you can call them that(proper word would be maths students), haven't done anything. Althought, some might be able to solve or prove stuff really quickly or get high grades. There is a difference between being locally right and globally right.

    That's fair enough but you're saying it as if DFranklin is an OAP... (which he isn't AFAIK :p:)
    He seems to still do an amazing job of answering the tougher questions on here despite graduating so long ago.

    I think by "grad" they mean that they've graduated, rather than that they're a grad student.

    Admission: I kind of cheated in that I voted for more than one person in each category... I couldn't make my mind up.
