I noticed that some of the MO questions that get closed are clear-cut going against the MO-guidelines eg. "here is the link to my new result" or "here is the jpg file of my homework question".
In https://mathoverflow.net/questions/ask, on the right, there is a pane with a link to https://mathoverflow.net/help/how-to-ask, but I was wondering maybe we can also do something similar to the Reddit-format of editing questions: basically have a short list of guidelines listed on the right of the editor so that they are clearly visible as the person is editing their question.
There is a beautiful list here https://mathoverflow.net/help/on-topic, under "What kind of questions should I not ask here?" that we can include a shortened version
- MathOverflow is not for homework help (we have a list of such sites for homework help: My question was closed on MO because it is not research level. Where should I ask instead?).
- MathOverflow is not for asking people to check your (or other people's) work.
- Avoid cross-posting with other sites to prevent duplication of efforts.
So that while the OP is editing their question, they can't help but stare at the "do not" rules.
Here is the reddit/math page to get an idea
