RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1980Goal: $5000

Is there none better? What about a fractal, like this one? Peter tanquam ex ungue leonem 05:19, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

but that one is one symbol,. not like 6--il'Dictator Mikal 05:21, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
I just made an icon for it: Icon math.svg. The icon I made originally had a bunch of random math symbols on it, like the image that was used in this template, but I felt it looked stupid so I came up with something I feel looked better, but also easyish for people to understand.

I'm not at a real computer, but since the tag line is "part of a convergent series on" can we change this to \sum\limits_{i=0}^\infty i^{-1} or \sum\limits_{i=0}^\infty \frac{1}{i} (equivalent) or \sum\limits_{i=0}^\infty i^{-1}=\frac{1}{i} or maybe go the ironic route and do \sum\limits_{i=0}^\infty i this is all without the "necessary" bit of extra formatting of adding in a lim -> symbol, as in \lim_{x\to\infty}\sum\limits_{i=0}^x i^{-1} 24.74.69.231 (talk) 14:37, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Pedantic Pete here[edit]

Actually it's me, C®ackeЯ, pausing to say that since this went from {{maths}} to {{mathematics}} it might make sense to change the Name on the banner from maths to mathematics? Someone else can actually do it...I'm only the idea guy. 03:42, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Done. ТyJFNWA 03:43, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

This should be changed to "convergent series"[edit]
