Does the Matter Modeling community want to ban unregistered users from asking questions?

Could we please add the ability to cite people's content?

I've had Adam switch on both the citation tool and the edit tool to help easily cite sources in your posts. The latter looks like this:

Can an invitation box be added to our site?

May we have the AMS tag added to our MathJax configuration?

It probably would be worth it. Anything we can do to make the transition to the site less jarring for people who are used to a certain way of doing things will probably be beneficial. I imagine it ...
