Please do [not use pictures for critical portions](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/20529/290189) of your post. Pictures may not be legible, cannot be searched and are not view-able to some, such as those who use screen readers. I have [edit]ed your question to reflect this principle.

# Wrong tags

See the Math.SE tag explanations.

# One question per post

Please, post only [one question in one post](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/7132/290189). Posting several questions in the same post is discouraged and such questions may be put on hold, see [meta](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/6464).

# Absence of word in question title

Please do [not use titles consisting only of math expressions](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9755/290189); these are discouraged for technical reasons -- see [Guidelines for good use of $\LaTeX$ in question titles](http://meta.math.stackexchange.com/a/9730).

# Questions lacking context

[Welcome to Math.SE!](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/11168/290189) Please read [this post](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9960) and the others there for information on writing a good question for this site. In particular, people will be more willing to help if you [edit] your question to include some motivation, and an explanation of your own attempts.

# Comments posted as answers from newbies

[Welcome to Math.SE!](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/10473/290189) This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have [sufficient reputation](https://math.stackexchange.com/help/whats-reputation), you can [comment on any post](https://math.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/comment).

# Displaystyle in question title

I have changed the formatting of the title so as to [make it take up less vertical space](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9686/290189) -- this is a policy to ensure that the scarce space on the main page is distributed evenly over the questions. See [here](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9730) for more information. Please take this into consideration for future questions. Thanks in advance.

# Notify question writer for a edit

[Welcome to Math.SE!](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/8588/290189) I have tried to improve the readability of your question by introducing [$\rm \LaTeX$](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5020/). It is possible that I unintentionally changed the meaning of your question. Please proofread the question to ensure this has not happened.

# Fractions in indices and exponents

Please [don't use `\frac` in exponents or limits of integrals](https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/5057/290189).
