@user21820 I voted to delete, and some hours later I found that this has been reopened. I think it may be worth flagging for moderator assistance in removing this question.

please close this PSQ. There is discussion in comments but still the asker hasn't clarified much.

@user21820 this is really frustrating. I just fail to understand the motives for reopening this one. Will discuss the matter internally with other mods and take action soon.

@ParamanandSingh Thank you very much. Previously the moderators agreed with deletion. I hope they will follow through with it, since the post really has zero value to this site. Furthermore, the moderators also said that the delete-votes should not be invalidated by reopening, so please take into account that there have been already 3 delete-votes intended (i.e. @MartinR's and two others).

If it happens again, I would recommend posting on the main meta site.

Q: How to know when the Collatz conjecture has been proved?

Daniel S.When using google to find out about research results about the Collatz conjecture, I find numerous proofs by various people who seem to be experts of the topic and an abundance of proofs by amateurs.
