This was requested on meta.SO for the Audio & Video Production site. As balpha says, audio clips uploaded to SoundCloud and lined to in a post will automatically be converted into an embedded player like this. Of course, a dev has to turn on the feature for this site, and I'm sure they will when they see this post.

MathJax is now enabled on the site.

While I completely agree that upper case tags will make life easier for us here, I'm very certain that this will be status-declined. For example, c#, .net, php etc., have existed on StackOverflow for 3 years now, although people would've preferred they be capitalized. Tags are made lowercase uniformly to standardize them. Else you'll end up with [DTFT], [...

Reasons for downvoting: To add to Jason R's answer, a lot of users, myself included, do not explain a downvote if there is another comment that explains it, and they agree with the explanation. In this case, users simply upvote the comment indicating agreement and downvote the post. Here is one such question that comes to mind as a good example of this ...

This is a fantastic idea, especially for sites that move into a second week of private beta. If a site generates enough questions and answers in the first week, then all's well and it opens to the public. However, when there is not enough content being generated it makes sense to extend the user base. I was mulling over this trying to come up with ideas ...

I haven't seen a big rash of negative votes, but maybe I haven't been looking in the right places. I agree that it is annoying to receive a negative vote after spending time to craft a detailed (and correct) answer. I think that it's a difficult balance: the anonymity provided during the down-vote process might help to encourage some negative votes that ...

Can someone from SE please revisit this request now that we're out of beta. Signal processing is sufficiently math heavy that it's sometimes required in meta discussions as well. For example, see this recent question.

We can turn on code syntax highlighting if the community sees a need for it -- do you think many posts would benefit? It's not a heavy dependency, but it is a minor one, so we'd want to make sure that it will benefit many posts not just a few.

There is some thought of possibly allowing this kind of functionality. It is not a definite plan yet, mostly because the majority of private betas only last 7 days - the need for invitations in that short of a period is fairly sparse. It's still under some level of consideration. However, the point is rather moot, as this site is now open as a public beta. ...

You could do: <pre> code code2 code3 </pre> which gives you code code2 code3 I think triple backticks code should work to:  code more code some final code  code more code some final code This should also work: <code> code code2 code3 </code> which renders as: code code2 code3 The <pre> tag has trouble with HTML ...

Any site that is not still in beta can request up to five user-initiated migration targets that will be set up by the Community Team as needed. There's a nice FAQ about migration over on the main meta site. You can request these through a meta request like this and we will consider them. For right now, I don't see a need for this migration path. The last ...

Other than contacting the person in chat there is no way of "targeting" users in this way. If your question is interesting and tagged correctly then, assuming that they are interested in those tags, then it's highly likely they'll see the question anyway, and if it's a good question they may well answer. Questions are, by definition public, and open to ...

That's a great point! I'll put up an announcement for a Meta discussion about that later today.

No, it's not a bug. It just means that there are no questions with open bounties. A week or so ago, it was there. That was because I had an open bounty on a question. The bounty is now closed, so there are no featured questions.

3

Generally speaking, we discourage migration unless a question simply makes no sense on the site that it's asked on. This is especially important on beta sites which are still establishing themselves. If someone has found their way to Digital Signal Processing and asked a question, it's generally best to assume that this is the right spot for them to ask ...

I will point out part of what Yoda was saying. The solution is not using acronyms in my mind. Make a synonym for your acronym! The users can use the acronym they are used to and we can all see it typed out without the exhausting work of typing it out. Now the not fitting part, I am not sure what to say there, we need to approach tags somehow for that and ...

That's great! The only additional thing I'd ask is that you create a one-sentence summary of the tag. I get this at the top of the question list when I click on that as a tag on a question. Let me know if you don't see that and I'll see if I can add something.

Done (after a short hiccup that hopefully didn't inconvenience anyone). We usually do this when we turn MathJax on for the main site, somehow it fell through the cracks - sorry about that :) It's enabled now, enjoy.

There are only three custom close reasons allowed, and these are currently set up to be: I asked for the last one to be added, because the beginning of each northern hemisphere academic year always brings students asking for us to do their homework. As a moderator, when I select the off-topic option, I can search for a more appropriate SE site: but then ...

I completely agree (answer stolen from @PeterK. comment:). A very good option is to consider that a "perfect answering" comment is a philanthropic action. The commenter could have answered instead for his benefit. Philanthropy should draw attention to the commenter, and that could incite the OP and the valid answer providers (inspired by the comment) to ...

In fact, just use the curly braces when answering: the SE answer "IDE" has this function automatically. Just hit the curly brace button after selecting the code you want indented.

It looks like this was added by another moderator: This question does not appear to be about signal processing within the scope defined in the help center. but required the approval of someone else (e.g. me). I've just approved it and it seems to have gone live.

I'll look into it later tonight, thanks for the post.

let's see if it works for an answer: \begin{align} X(f) &\triangleq \int\limits_{-\infty}^{+\infty} x(t) \ e^{-j 2 \pi f t} \ dt \\ \\ x(t) &= \int\limits_{-\infty}^{+\infty} X(f) \ e^{+j 2 \pi f t} \ df \\ \end{align} that seems to work too. Thank you Tim.

In my question, I complained about anonymous down-votes without any reason being given, and asked "Are signal processors just nastier than ..." Well, the question itself has received 3 down-votes without any reason being given, and so rather than making this a comment on my question (comments cannot be down-voted, only up-voted), I am making this an answer. ...

You can always set the text-transform property in a personal stylesheet, for example .post-tag { text-transform: uppercase; } switches all those tags to nice uppercase. Beware: this switches all tags. It should be possible to limit the change to dsp.sx via @-moz-document.
