Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A SO style site for math questions seems like it would do well. It would be a helpful place for questions like this one about the probability of rolling a certain dice combination.

Is there any chance that a math related site will be opened?

Although not specified the question, you cite, as the asker, I can say it is actually programming related. I'm writing an algorithm to double check a program I wrote. – Ethan Heilman Jul 29 '09 at 22:29

There is one for serious mathematics of interest to the academic/research community:

http://MathOverflow.com

Be sure to read its FAQ before posting!

I think there wasn't one when the question was asked. Judging from comments on other answers, ever StackExchange wasn't ready. – hasen Dec 9 '09 at 2:50
    
Yes, there wasn't. However, now, there is! – SLaks Dec 9 '09 at 2:58
    
Speaking as somebody who did very well as a math undergrad, and has taken math courses since, they've got a special tag for questions I can understand without difficulty: soft-question. – David Thornley Dec 9 '09 at 18:05

-1. Mathoverflow is for Serious mathematics of interest to the academic/research community. They do not welcome questions about the kind of math problems/questions that are often asked on this site. IMHO this answer should be unaccepted. SLaks: nothing personal, it's just that mathoverflow gets recommended often w/o people understanding what it's for. There is still a void for a math site to refer people to. – Jason S Jan 5 '10 at 15:50

We now have http://math.stackexchange.com which is targetted for math at all levels.

Obligatory answer:

You can start your own with StackExchange.

Until it's released (in 6-8 weeks, of course) StackExchange is vaporware to me. – David Locke Jul 29 '09 at 20:09

@David: Unless they rename it StackExchange Forever, I'm holding out hope. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 29 '09 at 20:15

I doubt the quality of StackExchange sites versus say the OG sites (stackoverflow, serverfault, etc). Stackoverflow has a full team of developers building a framework to solve the exact problems faced by stackoverflow. I really hope this isn't true, but a stackexchange site is likely to be a second class citizen to stackoverflow. – Ethan Heilman Jul 29 '09 at 22:35
    
Also if you feel like starting one, I'm totally down, 129 a month split 2 ways isn't that costly. – Ethan Heilman Jul 29 '09 at 22:38

It would be great, but we'd need a VERY GOOD EDITOR to be able to input all of the math constructs.

texify.com would work nicely – John Rasch Jul 29 '09 at 20:45
    
Why ? In tex, in mathml, in programming ... in all those, math expressions are expressed using regulra text. – Rook Sep 28 '09 at 20:37

If you think there's a good market for it, opening your own using the stackexchange engine is definitely an option!
