Content on this site is rated on a 3 point scale by Usefulness (🔧), Novelty (💡), Uncertainty (🤪) and Incompleteness (🚧), where, for example, the Uncertainty rankings should be interpreted as
- Ignorant. I know only enough about this topic to know I know nothing.
- Dunning-Kruger. I know enough about this topic not to know my own ignorance.
- Competent. I know this topic well enough to know what I do not know.
Other scales are analogous.

The citations are handled through Zotero.
This is a work in progress.
Nerds can get some clues as to how rapidly I will respond based on the following graph:
