I noticed that MathJax is incorrectly capitalized on the Ask Question page, in two places. It should be MathJax, not MathJaX.

    $\begingroup$ @GerryMyerson They probably were inspired by the spelling of LaTeX, so it was Lamport, I guess. (Like LaTeX is a combination of La(mport) and TeX, MathJax is a combination of Math(ematics) and (a)Jax, so it kinda makes sense.) $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 6, 2015 at 7:50
  • $\begingroup$ This should be fixed. I know mods can edit some special areas, but I don't know if they can edit the Ask Question page – we might need to contact Stack Exchange to ask them to change it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @wythagoras Moderators cannot edit that page/sidebar. It'll have to be done by an employee. But this change should be made for all MathJax-enabled SE sites, which have the same text, but instead link to here. SE does keep tabs on child-meta bug reports, and if a change doesn't happen within some reasonable time, one of the mods can ping a CM. (FWIW, 1999 is likely able to get Shog's attention in the Tavern fairly frequently.) $\endgroup$

This has been fixed, and will apply as of build 2863.

  • $\begingroup$ Just to be certain, this fix will apply to all MathJax-enabled sites? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, the changes are not site-specific. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 3, 2015 at 9:42
