Your name in native script

Perhaps you are a contributor to the Stacks project and you would like to see your name spelled differently or you would like your name displayed in your native script. Although there are all kinds of technical difficulties with this, Pieter Belmans and I would like to try to do this. If you are interested please email your name as you would like to have it. For example try sending the info using Unicode or HTML escape characters.

[Edit 2/18/2018: OK, we’ve started to implement this. Look at the link to the contributors file above or look on contributors page.]

Up to date

OK, over the last few days I have worked through all the comments left on the Stacks project. There were some interesting ones that needed a bit of thought. Please keep them coming!

Leaving comments

If you want to leave a comment about a lemma, definition, remark, etc, please click through to the page of the lemma, definition, remark, etc and then leave a comment. Only leave a comment on a section if your comment is about the whole section or about text which is not in any environment, e.g., it is about the introduction to the section. This should be pretty rare.

If you have a longish comment involving mathematics and especially latex code, it is helpful to send a copy of your comment to the email address for the Stacks project ( This will make it much faster for me to incorporate your suggested changes.

Technologically advanced people can use github and do a pull request.

Finally, if you don’t want to comment in public, then you can email the stacks project at the address mentioned above. Of course, I will be the one dealing with your email, since I am currently the maintainer of the project. So you could also decide to email to my personal email address. But if you do so, then there is a chance that I will overlook your email due to the large volume of incoming email in my personal email account. So I strongly prefer emails addressing issues with the Stacks project to be sent to the Stacks project email address.

Thanks for all your comments!
