or answer, then the post often ends up with an extraneous line break
right before each inline math formula, when viewed in Safari on macOS.
For example $x^2$ and $y^2$ and $z^3$ all start new lines,
for no good reason. I think this is a recent change.
Here is an earlier version of this same question:

My dearest SageTeXers, Sagers, arara-users and Pythoners as well!
The normal way to compile a file `example.tex` which contains SageTeX is
`pdflatex example.tex` <br>
`sage example.sagetex.sage`<br>
`pdflatex example.tex`
So the initial question is: How to make a shortcut for this?geroyxSun, 05 Jan 2020 18:36:10 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/49378/How to format posts on this forum?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/44962/how-to-format-posts-on-this-forum/Is there a description of features used to format posts on this forum?

I have found a question which I know how to answer but when I try to submit the page simply refreshes. I am guessing this has something to do with having low karma but am unsure how to increase my karma since I do not have any questions at this time. I found a similar unreplied to question (to which I apparently cannot link because my karma is insufficient?) on askbot but the solution there of adding a comment first does not work for me. Any ideas on how to fix this are appreciated.
jupsalMon, 18 Jul 2016 19:55:20 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/34128/where is the SageMath "Demonstrations Project"?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/35347/where-is-the-sagemath-demonstrations-project/I am sure most of you are aware of the [Wolfram Demonstrations Project](http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/topics.html). If not, it’s a library of interactive models demonstrating different mathematical concepts. If you *buy* Mathematica you can edit and experiment with the code yourself. I find it really helpful to be able to investigate something in a interactive graph to understand the relationships in say an economic model, e.g. this example of a [basic supply and demand model](http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/BasicSupplyAndDemand/), this more intricate [Keynesian IS-LM Model](http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/TheKeynesianISLMModel/), or this model that allows you to [investigate income and substitution effects with different utility functions](http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/IncomeAndSubstitutionEffectsWithDifferentUtilityFunctions/).
Friendly people here at ask.sagemath have a couple of times answered my questions by posting code to http://sagecell.sagemath.org, which I really appreciate, e.g. this [visualization of logistic population growth](http://sagecell.sagemath.org/?q=uwecsj), but **is there a way to search for SageMath code examples or some library of interactive SageMath models demonstrating different mathematical concepts like the Wolfram Demonstrations Project?** I'm also interested to share projects myself.
I think something like a SageMath "Demonstrations Project" could be a great way to demonstrate the power of SageMath in an very accessible way, and possibly contribute to spreading the awareness of SageMath.etbWed, 02 Nov 2016 12:33:58 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/35347/What should the FAQ contain?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7570/what-should-the-faq-contain/The [mathoverflow site][1] has [a great FAQ][2].

How to solve?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/31279/buggy-asksagemath-rss-feed-in-feedly-how-to-solve/Feedly (1) is a very popular rss reader. Since I'm using it, I tried to add the ask.sagemath rss feed. Feedly correctly displays the title of the feed ("ASKSAGE: Sage Q&A Forum"), but then it displays completely unrelated content (even some posts in polish).
I reported the bug on the Feedly suggestion page (2).
I'm asking here whether the bug may be due to the ask.sagemath rss feed instead that to Feedly. Also, perhaps some other users of ask.sagemath that use also Feedly would be happy to have the problem solved, so they can upvote the reported issue (2).

I found that main commands like "factor" or "identity_matrix" which are automatically available in Sage are not under %cython. Then, it's necessary to add the lines:
"from sage.rings.arith import factor"
"from sage.matrix.constructor import identity_matrix"
**Questions**:
- Why the main commands are not automatically available under %cython ?
- Is there a line importing directly all the main commands under %cython ?
- Or, is it a good idea to improve the Sage software so that it works directly ?
I read also that such imported commands are not "cythonised" (and so not 100 times faster).
- Are there cythonised equivalents of all the main commands ?
- If not, is there a project to cythonised all the main commands ?
- Why Sage does not use directly Cython ?

I rub salt in the wound on [meta.stackoverflow](http://meta.stackoverflow.com/) about the question of Open Sourcing StackExchange, see [here](http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/186641/are-there-noble-reasons-for-stackexchange-does-not-become-open-source) (it currently scores -10, so some help would be welcome...).
The motivation of my previous topic is that I read on [ask.sagemath here](http://ask.sagemath.org/question/2110/stackexchange) that some people are not agree to migrate to StackExchange because it in **not** open source (not yet...).
So I ask to you the following question:
If StackExchange becomes open-source and if it's technically possible to migrate to it :

* strings like "sage-support" auto-linked like this: [sage-support](http://groups.google.com/group/sage-support)

I hope that this suggestion sounds reasonable. It may be a very good idea to elect several moderators for this forum - so that they could solve occasional problems - usually created by disgruntled visitors.
Moderators have the following rights:
* edit or delete any post
* add/subtract reputation to/from users
* send (email with CC of their own address) messages to any user
* change user status between "blocked", "suspended" and "approved".
Moderators cannot moderate other moderators or administrators in any way besides editing their posts.
Suspended users can edit only own posts, blocked users can't edit anything regardless of the "karma".
The idea is that with someone who can actively look after the site, the forum will be more useful, more friendly and cleaner.
What do you think?
**edit:** some definitions
**Administrator** has access to site settings and a separate admin interface (basically direct access to the database) and has all moderator rights plus he/she is able to give/revoke moderator status. Admins can be added/removed either through command line or admin interface.
**Moderator** is like "admin" who cannot edit settings and database records, cannot add/dismiss moderators or admins.EvgenySat, 18 Sep 2010 23:35:21 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7702/Is this website meant to replace sage-support@googlegroups.com?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7561/is-this-website-meant-to-replace-sage-supportgooglegroupscom/I'm not sure what would be the difference of purpose of those two sites if the answer is not...Oscar LazoSat, 21 Aug 2010 19:44:17 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7561/Comments on answershttps://ask.sagemath.org/question/7599/comments-on-answers/How do I comment on an answer on this site?Jason GroutThu, 19 Aug 2010 23:26:48 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7599/Please configure SMTP settingshttps://ask.sagemath.org/question/7589/please-configure-smtp-settings/Hi guys, I am sorry for intruding in this way, but I thought since you are experiencing such difficulties on this site it's best to fix the issue as soon as possibleEvgenyThu, 19 Aug 2010 13:35:49 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7589/
