    $\begingroup$ I just wanted to say I wish I could give Qiaochu a prize or something! Every time he answers one of my questions, the answer is always spectacular, and it means so much to me that I make sure to always answer one or two math/physics questions by younger students on this on other forums. Keep up the good work! $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 30, 2010 at 15:04

Thanks to the many senior and established mathematicians spending their time answering questions around here. And to the less senior, nevertheless enthusiastic and diligent members of of the mathematical community. All have contributed high-quality answers.

And finally thanks to all the anonymous users for all the effort they spent on the site. An interesting side-remark is that one of them, Moron, has a somewhat misleading pseudonym!

  • $\begingroup$ As a side remark, I've already seen some people with last name Moron. $\endgroup$
