MathJax is a library that provides maths formatting, and this has been implemented across mathematical SE sites.

Would it be a good idea to enable MathJax on Drones.SE? E.g. for answers such as this one.

(As per metas, upvote for yes and downvote otherwise.)

    $\begingroup$ ZOMG, why is this being voted down? We can't have drones at all without heavy math that is unique to drone flight. The core automation which allows them to fly is a domain of intense interest and is done by exactly the kind of experts I'd like to see attracted to SE.Drones. $\endgroup$ – Kenn Sebesta Apr 21 at 16:05
  • $\begingroup$ As this has been sitting at a majority for Yes for over a month now, it may be a good time to go about getting MathJax enabled? $\endgroup$ – Kralc Jun 7 at 22:07
  • $\begingroup$ I'll ping a CM to try and get this enabled $\endgroup$ – Xnero Jun 8 at 8:48

There are a couple of answers where I would actually be able to benefit from that - it's going to be abnormal to really need/benefit from it, but where it is useful, those are going to be high quality showcase sorts of answers.

If nothing is lost by enabling, enable.

So long as there is no disadvantage to doing so, I say that Yes, it should be enabled.

While Daniil states "We will have very few answers with that math technical detail", I think that this is the wrong way to run a SE site. Answers must be professional and high quality, which induces technical by default.

I don't think it will. We will have very few answers with that math technical detail, so I do not think it is necessary for very few answers.

    $\begingroup$ Can I disagree? I think we've already had a fair number which already have math showing up in them. We're far away from SE.Mathematics, but the drone domain is at its core a question of controls and automation, which are exclusively mathematical in nature. It's really annoying to have to make the math somewhere else, make a PNG, and then return here. Worse, if you made a mistake our would otherwise like to update things, you have to either save the original MatmML code or rewrite it all. $\endgroup$ – Kenn Sebesta Apr 21 at 16:04

We got it on Materials Modeling since Day 1 of Private Beta. I don't see any disadvantage to it.
