It has happened before that MathJax stopped getting rendered on this site for a few hours.
QUESTION: If that happens on the machine I'm using and I want to know whether it's a problem with my machine or a recurrence of that sort of outage, what is the proper thing for me to do?
I thought that if I asked here whether others experienced the same problem, then either of two things could happen:
(1) Others would say the are experiencing the problem, and then it would be reported to whoever should fix it, and moreover it would be announced here on meta that the problem is happening, so users would be reassured that it's not a problem with their own computers, and that it's being worked on; or else
(2) Others would say that are not experiencing the problem, and then we would all know that those things should not be done.
As I said, I thought that's what should happen. But when I posted, I was told that my question is not useful because I didn't post a screenshot. Obviously a screenshot of MY machine could not possibly help ascertain whether others were experiencing the same problem. I was further told that the question is too broad because it admits too many possible answers. I guess TWO possible answers --- the two listed above --- is too many.
So what should I do in that situation instead?
