    added to simplicial set in the Definition section a slightly more explicit version of the definition.

    (I see now this kind of thing is repeated further below in the entry. But it should be right there as a formal definition, I think.)

    That looks good. What do you think should go at the subsection: As models in homotopy theory as we still have a stub there, (even a simple list of the topics might look better?)

    What do you think should go at the subsection: As models in homotopy theory as we still have a stub there,

    Sorry, I thought it was clear what should go there from the keywords: a brief discussion of how simplicial sets support ordinary homotopy theory as well as directed homotopy theory with pointers to the relevant entries.

    added two graphics illustrating simplicial sets here.

    I am looking for more and better such graphics. Something one could show on slides to give a good quick idea of what simplicial sets (or at least simplicial complexes) are, without actually giving the definition.

    I can't see anything on the simplicial set page. The history shows that this is definitely the right page. Only the title is showing the rest is compltely empty. Other pages on the nlab load just fine.

    Thanks for the alert! I have fixed it now.

    This must be because our sysadmin Richard Williamson just recently made some changes to the parsing of pages. The cause of the problem now was this:

    The floating table of contents since the last edit had been coded as

      +-- {: .rightHandSide}
      +-- {: .toc .clickDown tabindex="0"}
      ###Context###
      #### Homotopy theory
      +--{: .hide}
      [[!include homotopy - contents]]=--
      =--
      =--
    

    instead of

      +-- {: .rightHandSide}
      +-- {: .toc .clickDown tabindex="0"}
      ###Context###
      #### Homotopy theory
      +--{: .hide}
      [[!include homotopy - contents]]
      =--
      =--
      =--
    

    (as easily happens from copy-and-pasting the ingredients).

    Fixed now!

    Interesting problem with the parsing. Perhaps some warnings are needed, detecting edge cases like that, before pages are submitted?

    And on another note, the section on directed graphs raises an interesting point. Definitionally, I would of thought that a quiver looks more like a globular set, rather than a simplicial set. Indeed, it seems kind of unnatural to force it to become a simplicial set. Could this be due to similarities of simplicial and globular sets for dimensions less than 2? I have no idea, just an observation.

    This isn't the first time I have seen globular sets and directed graphs arise. [I wrote about them in this seperate forum post (by wrote I mean blurted).] (https://nforum.ncatlab.org/discussion/8786/generalising-quiver-representations-to-globular-sets/?Focus=70396#Comment_70396).
