Im working on an open famous problem (i.e. a conjecture in mathematics), but i am having a hard time figuring out if i can or should publish any of the material im working on, on my website. I don't know if any of it is important for a future academic/scientific paper (I would want write). But if it is important, should I be more careful posting on my site?. Question is basically if something has allready been written and published on a website and it turned out to be an important result or proof of something, would it be accepted in a journal or Arxiv if it was allready published on a website?
Its not like I do advanced stuff, I do not have a phD or something, im amateur mathematician and love to do small puzzles and stuff. Would it turn out to be a problem if some of it was allready published on my website? And if someone else got ideas from my work, and decided to write a very mathematical paper about it without giving me the credit. Does this make it more obvious I should not post on my website, to keep it secret and hidden? Maybe the last bit is not something to be concerned about, but I still think its worth mentioning.
If I take it a little further, what if someone published a proof or some new material on say math.stackexchange (on this site), what would happen?
If this is a duplicate please refer me to the question.
