General posting guidelines
- Use EQ tags for LaTeX equations on their own lines, and IEQ to render inline equations.
- Only include LaTeX between those tags; anything else should be placed outside of them.
- Write in the text box like you would when posting to any forum. Special tags for formatting are allowed ([B]bold[/B] and [I]italics[/I]).
- Submit the post, then copy the link from the location bar at the top of your browser. Paste this link in a forum, on IRC, or through IM to let others see what might otherwise be impossible to explain.
Please note that the posts are not permanent. They have a reasonably long lifetime, but they may be deleted after a sufficiently long time (months, or years. It depends on the volume of posts the site receives.)
