Why was my post deleted on PF?

In summary, the conversation discusses the use of LaTeX for displaying equations on a forum and the process for getting a post approved. It also mentions that original research is not allowed on the forum.

I'm not aware of the mathcode here, so forgive me for not posting my work straight away. I simply need to ascertain what code first displays equations.

$a$
[tex]a[/tex]
\(\displaystyle a\)

There's a LaTeX guide linked below the reply box. You will find you need to refresh the page when your post is the first to use LaTeX on a given page.

I posted my first thread but has disappeared. Says its awaiting approval? Is this to prevent spam and how long does it take to get approved?

Some threads get put in an approval queue until a mentor can look at it. I'm not sure exactly what the criteria are.

I only glanced at your post, but I think you implied it was original research. PF doesn't accept original research (this isn't the place for it), and that may be what's caused it to need approval.

Your post has been deleted. We do not allow personaly theory discussions here at PF. Have a nice day.
