• Carl: Sorry I've been a bit behind on this. But can you (or someone else) help trim the text a little? As I mentioned in that answer we have only 400 characters to work with. It would be a great help to me if someone else can look over the text and distill it so it is more concise. Thanks. Jul 29 '13 at 15:41
• @Willie Wong: I have now created a community wiki answer for that purpose. Jul 29 '13 at 17:11
• To anyone who happens to read this: it would also help if we can flesh out meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/9959 a bit. (But no rush; the "context" part of that post is already in a decent state.) Jul 30 '13 at 5:12
• Thanks @Carl for the CW. Jul 30 '13 at 5:13

• @WillieWong: Would it be possible then to insert helps here: "This information helps others identify where you run into a problem and $\color{red}{\text{helps}}$ write answers appropriate to your experience level."? Jul 30 '13 at 13:16
