I posted this question Prove that $1<\frac{1}{1001}+\frac{1}{1002}+\frac{1}{1003}+\ldots+\frac{1}{3001}<\frac43$. I edited it quite a few times to add a context. However, when this user https://math.stackexchange.com/users/11176/tmm edited my post. I rolled it back, and immediately he/she said that I should not rollback any edit unless very necessary. I asked the reason but the user did not reply and re-edited the post. I don't want to follow rules setup by an individual but rather a community. Please enlighten me in this matter.

  • $\begingroup$ The reasons seem to be explained quite well by the comment of the user who edited. $\endgroup$ – Tobias Kildetoft Feb 24 '14 at 14:40
  • $\begingroup$ @TobiasKildetoft but the reason was not explained at all for the edit. $\endgroup$ – Hawk Feb 24 '14 at 14:41

    $\begingroup$ Yes it was. He said that titles should preferably not use display math in order to keep the front page clean. $\endgroup$ – Tobias Kildetoft Feb 24 '14 at 14:44

    $\begingroup$ @TobiasKildetoft Okay, I see that now, which I could not until a few moments ago. But, if that is the case, why did he edit the body? I think I was feeling more comfortable the way it was looking before the edit. $\endgroup$ – Hawk Feb 24 '14 at 14:47

    $\begingroup$ @Hawk: The roll it back to the point you were comfortable with, and then remove the display math from the title yourself. $\endgroup$ – user14972 Feb 24 '14 at 14:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Hurkyl Ok. Thank you. I just hope I know how to do that. :) $\endgroup$ – Hawk Feb 24 '14 at 14:54
  • $\begingroup$ @Hawk I think it looks better with more spacing. Did you like the way it looked before because the $=$ signs were more aligned? If so, consider using $$\begin{eqnarray*}...$$ $\endgroup$ – Alexander Gruber Feb 25 '14 at 2:43
  • $\begingroup$ I edited this into the question to demonstrate how to do it, feel free to roll it back if you don't like it. $\endgroup$ – Alexander Gruber Feb 25 '14 at 2:45
  • $\begingroup$ @AlexanderGruber Thank you a lot. $\endgroup$ – Hawk Feb 25 '14 at 7:21
  • $\begingroup$ I do not think that the tag "summation" is very appropriate, so while I agree with the title issue, the editor should not have insisted on that tag, because the asker did not ask to evaluate the sum. $\endgroup$ – Phira Feb 26 '14 at 13:22
