    Default I am thinking of adding a question of the month for spatu users to contemplate

    What do you all think of this idea ... sort of a way to stimulate more activity here ...

    What if we came up with an open ended problem every month for everyone who is registered at spatu ...

    I as admin can send out an email with this question and have a bunch of people chime in on this one problem of the month.

    What do you think? It seems we have a ton of lurkers here or people that rarely log in. I sent an email out a week or 2 ago and it seemed that people jumped on board.

    Does this seem like a good idea? If so, does anyone have a first problem?

    How about : Why does quantum theory not agree with our observed cosmological constant?

    Do you like that or can someone propose another?

    But would it be a good question for the question of the month OR would you have something else to suggest to get the members here contributing more.

    It would seem, to me at least, that this would be a good idea. Sure, you'll have some questions that some won't be able to respond to a la Coelacanth but then they will be able to respond to other question to which others may not be qualified to answer. Of course, you will always have those that will answer every question as well as those that like to just lurk...
