After the transition to the stack exchange network, I have occasionally noticed posts being edited to replace occurrences of the following code (note the backticks):

`\[ some math here \]`


$$ some math here $$

Most recently, such an edit was made to the question Homotopy type of tensors of Moore spectra. These edits are infrequent, but still recurrent.

Can someone with access to the database find all occurrences of such code (and perhaps some variations of it) and automatically make the replacement?

  • $\begingroup$ @ScottMorrison: I have a couple of questions. Would this question warrant the tag 'bug', even if tangentially? Also, would tagging the question 'bug' get a quicker developer reaction on this matter? $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 15, 2013 at 23:45
  • $\begingroup$ Good question. I can email the stackexchange folks to remind them of this. More generally, I think we need better triaging of feature-requests and bugs, so everyone knows what's happening. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 16, 2013 at 3:16
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, @Scott. Please let me know if you learn something useful. The feedback on feature-requests is very scarce. Any suggestions on how we should perform this triaging? $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 16, 2013 at 8:12
