    A Little Market Research

    So I'm not taking a really tough courseload this summer and I want to make some improvements before the fall.

    1) What new feature would be the most beneficial to this site?

    2) What do most dislike about this site?

    If you've got a few minutes I'd appreciate any responses. Of course, ALL opinions are welcome (especially negative ones). Feel free to PM me if you want to keep it private, and I won't hold anything against anyone.

    Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!

    Improve the LaTeX rendering. It looks like the equations were done in monochrome (and they look awful).

    I will see what is possible, but when I first setup LaTeX rendering this was the only option. I might be able to talk to my webhost and ask them to install the packages I would need for the higher quality images.

    Thanks!

    It's not too bad if you use the large type.

    This is a small version:

    [tex]\int_{2}^{4}{x^{3}-\frac{\sqrt{x-1}}{12}}\,dx[/tex]

    This is a large version:

    [tex]\L\,\int_{2}^{4}{x^{3}-\frac{\sqrt{x-1}}{12}}\,dx[/tex]

    I guess, sometimes, you do need the smaller type size.

    Even in the large version, the images could still use improvement. Like I said, it looks like the forumlas were done in monochrome. They would look a lot nicer if more shades of gray were used.

    True enough.
