You are right, this is part of some recent network-wide changes to the profile: Now live: A fully responsive profile. Some of the reasons for the changes are in other posts on Meta Stack Exchange, e.g. Some changes to the profile while we make it responsive. The top network posts were listed in the previous version of the profile as well, but right under the ...

Avoid non-descriptive/non-helpul titles      Bad Example: Help me! $$$$ This is bad because it doesn't specify what specifically you need help with ( it might as well be going to the bathroom), second it doesn't take away effort of checking tags. Tell us if you know the answer       This ties into other points, like it might help indicate the problem is with ...

I think I must answer this question , piecing together a couple of things from my comments and other experiences that I've had on this site. I'll put it in a table format. I'll answer the more general question : what to do when you see a question with interesting mathematical content that could be closed under one of the MSE guidelines. First, however, a ...

As an alternative, if you're alright with installing userscripts on your browser, you can try one of Samuel Liew's useful userscripts: Post Headers & Question TOC. It provides (among other things) a table of contents of answers in the right sidebar. Clicking on the entry of an answer scrolls the page to the beginning of that answer. I expect this would ...

Solution using a third party app1. Mathpix Snip has the ability to 'Export to .docx', and also allows you to 'Copy MS Word'. Apparently the two give different things and I don't understand what 'Copy MS Word' gives. I also do not have any version of Word. But when I took a screenshot of nearly all your post with the app (its too long for one screenshot) I ...

From the content of the question and answer, honestly I see no reason for deleting them. The question was closed for lack of context. Questions which are closed and meet certain criteria are later automatically deleted. In my opinion, sufficient context would be something along the lines of "I am a combinatorics student/I am self studying combinatorics/...

This isn't by any means intended as a complete and definitive answer. (At least for some things I mention, I do not have a link to some kind of documentation saying this - they are mostly observations.) Still, I think that some of these things are useful to mention - and it is better to summarize them in an answer rather then leave them in multiple comments. ...

You can use dcases from mathtools, although I don't know how it works since I tried using the require command and it didn't work. You can find the package and the environment here. For $\rm\LaTeX$ though, it makes the subfunctions render in a displayed style.

This question might be a little off-topic for Math Meta—you are likely to get a better response from tex.se. However, since typesetting is often an issue on the main Math SE site, I suppose that this question is also in-scope here. Don't use \choose. The \choose command is a plain TeX command, and is not really appropriate for use in LaTeX. Instead, use ...

Add \Large in front of the whole thing: $$\Large\text{No. palindromes} = \begin{cases} {n \div 2 \choose (n-k) \div 2, k \div 2}, & n = 2x, k = 2y \\[2ex] {\lfloor n \div 2 \rfloor\choose (n-1 -k) \div 2, k \div 2}, & n = 2x +1, k = 2y \\[2ex] {\lfloor n \div 2 \rfloor \choose (n-2 -k) \div 2, k \div 2}, & n = 2x +1, k = 2y + 1 \\[2ex] 0, & n ...

$$q = \begin{cases} 5x, & \text{ if }55\\ 2x, & \text{ if }41 \end{cases}$$ $$q = \begin{cases} 5x, & \text{ if }55\\ 2x, & \text{ if }41 \end{cases}$$
