If a question posted on Math Stack Exchange, for example, goes unanswered for a couple of days, is it OK to post it on one of the math forums here?
Depends. Is it possibly from a student trying to cheat in their coursework? Or it is obiously from some mathematician who is having trouble with a difficult problem at their work? I'm pretty sure you know our rules for schoolwork-type questions...Swamp Thing said:If a question posted on Math Stack Exchange, for example, goes unanswered for a couple of days, is it OK to post it on one of the math forums here?
How do you know it's not for coursework? Can you post a link?Swamp Thing said:Not coursework, but in my case an interesting numerical observation that this retired engineer and math hobbyist is curious about.

Thanks, that looks like a general math question and not for schoolwork.Swamp Thing said:
Since you find the general math question interesting, I think you can post it here in the math forums with your own LaTeX problem statement and show your initial work on it. Hopefully if we can help you out, in the end you can post a link at SE to our solution at PF just to show them where to go next time...Swamp Thing said:If a question posted on Math Stack Exchange, for example, goes unanswered for a couple of days, is it OK to post it on one of the math forums here?

Possibly. Posting on a different platform may expose your question to a different audience, increasing the chances of receiving an answer. However, it is not guaranteed and it is still important to follow the guidelines and provide all necessary information for your question to be answered.
No, as long as you give credit to the original poster and do not copy their question word for word. It is important to reword the question and provide your own context and details.
No, Math Stackexchange is specifically for math-related questions. It is important to post your question on the appropriate platform to ensure that you receive relevant and accurate answers.
It is recommended to wait at least 24 hours before reposting a question on a different platform. This gives enough time for the original poster to respond and for other users to see and potentially answer your question. However, it is important to check the guidelines of the website to see if there are any specific rules regarding reposting questions.
