The reputation for an upvote on a question has been changed from +5 to +10, as announced in this blog post: We’re Rewarding the Question Askers. (So now reputation gained from an upvote on a question is the same as the reputation gained from an upvote on an answer.)

On Windows, you should be able to get into the MathJax contextual menu by right click on any (correctly rendered) formula. This menu contains various items, you can go to Math Settings -> Math Renderer and then choose one of the renderers.

If you know that user B routinely hangs out in chatroom C, you can drop in there and tell them about it. If user B doesn't chat much (or not at all): abusing the comment system for such purposes tends to be tolerated (it would be nice if you clean up yourselves after the matter has been settled). Within reason. If B declines or doesn't react, don't pester ...

This seems to work. (Instead of <br> you can simply use two spaces, if you prefer.) >! If $K=1-\frac{K_1}{2K_2}$ then clearly $K<1$.<br> >! Let $\lambda=\frac1{2K_2}$ so $K=1-\lambda K_1$.<br> >! Then $0\le\frac12=1-\frac12=1-\lambda K_2\le1-\lambda F'(c)\leq1-\lambda K_1=K<1$.<br> This was the suggestion from an ...

The reputation increase due to the change in worth of question upvotes depends primarily on how many question upvotes one received (and secondarily on how often one hit the reputation cap on days one received question upvotes). So people without any question naturally had no increase at all, people with few questions only a small increase. You gained 215 ...

Some comments: Algebraic geometry is related to abstract algebra, just as differential geometry is related to calculus. You want to add a tag to attract people interested in algebraic geometry, can the "abstract algebra" tag work? Is there any user who (i) is interested in AG, but (ii) watches ONLY the "abstract algebra" tag but not the AG tag? The ...

The abstract-algebra tag is a very general tag which is generally relevant for questions regarding groups, rings, fields, modules, and vector spaces. These kinds of questions tend to pop up in advanced undergraduate or elementary graduate level courses. The question being considered here is about algebraic geometry which is a much more specialized field. ...
