It appears MathOverflow has become an art, a culture, and recreation, all at once!

While I would never dare to argue that some serious math cannot be classified as recreation, this might be a bit of an overstatement that needs correcting.

I noticed this, too. The link is also wrong. –  icktoofay Jun 25 '13 at 3:24
    
MathOverflow is v1, right? –  Undo Jun 25 '13 at 3:35

@Undo Was. It became a SE 2.0 site today. –  Eric Jun 25 '13 at 3:39

I, for one, welcome our new MathOverlords.

My guess is that it'll continue to get 300-some questions a day. –  Shog9 Jun 25 '13 at 3:42

No. They have somewhat different audiences (there is overlap, but of course you can have accounts on both sites and participate as you wish). –  Shog9 Jun 25 '13 at 3:43

The StackOverlords won't be pleased to hear this. –  Eric Jun 25 '13 at 3:47

@Eric Shog9 will be fired shortly as punishment for this calculated treason. –  Anna Lear Jun 25 '13 at 3:54

That's ok; I've been promised a nice big slice of pi –  Shog9 Jun 25 '13 at 4:08

Math puns are so square, Shog3. –  Anna Lear Jun 25 '13 at 4:12

This one's round...ish. –  Shog9 Jun 25 '13 at 4:16

interesting angle people are taking on this issue. Math puns are integral to well being, particularly if they are in a sequence. –  user226423 Jun 25 '13 at 5:56

@Damien I feel that you're in your prime for math puns. –  Mark Garcia Jun 25 '13 at 6:13

@MarkGarcia the puns here are but a fraction of the total volume I know. My capacity for puns is infinite! –  user226423 Jun 25 '13 at 6:18

@Damien So pun-making is your area of specialization. Wonderful 'cos I'm in for pun-making too! This has been tantamount to competition since you've started it! –  Mark Garcia Jun 25 '13 at 6:25

@Damien BTW, why don't we set an agreement. Our paths have intersected at this moment and I feel that our union would be very beneficial to the art of punning. –  Mark Garcia Jun 25 '13 at 6:29

@MarkGarcia there should be an SE for puns, it'd be integral to SE as a whole. –  user226423 Jun 25 '13 at 6:31

Could I request (as a MathOverflow moderator) that we drop down one position on the 'Science' list, to appear after the 'basic' mathematics site?

You may get a bit more notice if you post this as it's own question. –  Noctrine Jun 25 '13 at 16:54
