Here's a list of common comments for Math.SE newbies.
I've posted them on [WordPress.com][wp], but I often got typos after
updating that page.*Without* version control, it's hard to find out
the cause of such error.
### Questions lacking context
[Welcome to Math.SE!](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/11168/290189)
Please read [this post](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9960/290189) 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.

### Questions not written in MathJax
[Welcome to Math.SE!](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/4928/290189) Please
use MathJax. For some basic information about writing math at this site see
e.g. [basic help on mathjax notation](/help/notation),
[mathjax tutorial and quick reference](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/5020/290189),
[main meta site math tutorial](//meta.stackexchange.com/a/70559/290189) and
[equation editing how-to](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/1773/290189).
### Newbies' pic-question
To avoid excedding the upper limit of 500&nbsp;characters, I've copied
and pasted *several* comments and combined them into one.
[Welcome to Math.SE!](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/4928/290189)
Please use MathJax. See
[mathjax tutorial and quick reference](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/5020/290189).
Please
[don't 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
viewable to those who use screen readers. Please read
[this post](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9960/290189) for information on writing
a good question. People will be more willing to help if you [edit] your
question to include an explanation of your own attempts.
### Image posts
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.
### Displaystyle in question title
I have changed the formatting of the title so as to
[make it take up less vertical space](//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](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9730/290189) for more information.
Please take this into consideration for future questions. Thanks in advance.
### One question per post
Please, post only
[one question in one post](//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](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/6464/290189).
### Fractions in indices and exponents
Please [don't use `\frac` in exponents or limits of integrals](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/5057/290189).
### Notify question writer for a $\LaTeX$ edit
[Welcome to Math.SE!](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/8588/290189) I have
tried to improve the readability of your question by introducing
[$\rm \LaTeX$](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/5020/290189). It is possible
that I unintentionally changed the meaning of your question. Please
proofread the question to ensure this has not happened.
### Wrong tags
Some commonly misused tags.
#### Probability Theory
[Probability theory](//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probability_theory) is
[about the measure-theoretic foundations](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/8587/290189)
of stochastics. The tag ([tag:probability-theory]) should be used for
questions concerning this subject, not for questions about calculating a
specific probability. Use ([tag:probability]) instead, see also
[meta](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/1686/290189).
#### Functional Analysis
The tag ([tag:functional-analysis]) is
[intended for questions about infinite dimensional vector spaces](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/8587/290189),
there is a separate tag for ([tag:functional-equations]); see the
[tag-wiki](https://math.stackexchange.com/tags/functional-analysis/info) and
the tag-excerpt. (The tag-excerpt is also shown when you are adding a tag to
a question.)
#### Algebraic Geometry
The tag ([tag:algebraic-geometry]) is
[intended for questions in a branch of mathematics called algebraic geometry](//math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/8587/290189)
(see the [tag-wiki](https://math.stackexchange.com/tags/algebraic-geometry/info).)
The tags ([tag:algebra-precalculus]) and/or ([tag:geometry]) should be used
for basic problems that involve both algebra and geometry.
