Math Focus: I'm still deciding, but my recent focus has been olympiad problems and math journal problems.
Does anyone else work on American Mathematical Monthly problems?

I was wondering who else works on these? I think they are fun.

My avatar is a picture of me holding The American Mathematical Monthly magazine. I got my name mentioned for solving a problem. I'm submitting another one now.

48215747_727437557631488_8094620722699173888_n.jpgOkay, here it is. The one I just solved isn't supposed to be posted online, but this is the one I solved 1.5 years ago. (Yes, it really does take that long to get printed)

I greyed out my name, not that it really matters, but I guess for privacy it's a good idea. I'm just one of the solvers, not the person whose solution got published!
Thanks from idontknow

Greying out yours is the worst thing you can do since anyone with access to the article can just find the name which is greyed out. This is even worse than doing nothing since at least in that case all anyone could find is a list of candidate names.

You should repost it without any names whatsoever. It probably doesn't matter but it doesn't hurt either and these are weird times and there be crazy people out there.
