    For the discussion at Higgs field I created a category:people entry for Philip Gibbs, who was about the first to discuss the Higgs detection at LHC.

    Hmm, looks like the edit announcer had some difficulty with this one.

  1. Indeed! Please leave it as it is Urs, if that’s OK, as I should find some time to debug and fix later.

    In the case of page creation (as opposed to editing of a page), there was a bug in the code which creates the links back to the created page. Should now be fixed. I also fixed #1 itself.

    This was the first time the announcer has been used for a page creation, except for test purposes.

    Thanks, Richard!

    BTW, somebody might want to add to the entry that Philip Gibbs is the creator of vixra.org.

    Are there any examples of papers being submitted to vixra after being rejected from arxiv and then later found to be valuable?

    I never looked into this issue, but Google tells me that this question has occurred to others before, say at Quora where it has a thread: Are there any serious papers on viXra?. The reply by Philip Gibbs might be expected to be biased, but seems to me a very informative, balanced and thoughtful read.

    [edit: now that I am at it, I could just as well add that link to the entry on Philip Gibbs. done now]

    Yes, a good read. Thanks.

    Disciplinary boundary maintenance is a problematic business. The story of how scientists looked to belittle Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation is a great case for those supporting outsiders.
