Can we include a prominent link to MathJax in the Tour, a suggested here, and on the sidebar (bulletin) that displays on the right side when one is going to ask a question, as suggested in the comments by Martin Sleziak?

See also here and here for related discussions, where all points out that a showy link would be more than helpful for new users. Or perhaps, instead of the MathJax tutorial link, a How can I format Mathematics here link?

When one is going to ask a question, there are various links: the Provide details, the choose a good title, etc. I think the MathJax link explicitly is missing.


There's also this observation, when one is going to ask a question, this displays on the right sidebar.

enter image description here

Where there are 3 repeated links on both bulletins, the last 3 in the first bulletin and the 3 in the second bulletin.

Edit 2 I've also thought about this previously, and made a comment about it here. Thanks to Martin Sleziak's notitification, reminded me about that.

    $\begingroup$ When you say "in the sidebar", do you mean the part entitled "helpful links", which is shown when asking a question. (As displayed in this screenshot.) I actually added the (asking-question) tag, but then removed it, since the post does not really say which sidebar you mean. (If you mean this one, feel free to use the screenshot in your post.) $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2021 at 11:37
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak You're right. I was not clear enough. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2021 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ Regarding the MathJax link, I suppose the ones mentioned here math.meta.stackexchange.com/q/33179 $\endgroup$ Mar 20, 2021 at 16:48
