I have a question on mathematical writing. Which Stack Exchange site would be appropriate for this?

Writing seems to be the ideal choice. But, mathematical writing seems to be not on agreement with academic writing in many matters. See this question and its answer on math.stackexchange for instance.

    I don't understand. The question you cite, whose topic is mathematical writing, is located at Math SE. Unless you're saying the question is off topic there—then it's on topic there and surely where similar questions should be asked. – Jason Bassford Jan 4 at 6:29

    You haven't given any reason why Writing isn't a good place to try... the community there will be happy I'm sure to help you to shape your questions such that they fit there. – curiousdannii Jan 4 at 8:02
  • @JasonBassford, then you should say Math SE is the correct site. But that question is only a soft question there for sure. – Cyriac Antony Jan 4 at 9:15
  • @curiousdannii, i am afraid mathematical writing doesn't quite fit in Writing SE. Only questions on mathematical writing I could find in SE is in math SE and they are all soft-questions there. – Cyriac Antony Jan 4 at 9:17
  • What do you mean by "mathematical writing"? – Peter Mortensen Jan 4 at 20:45
  • pizza_static_void_main gave a good advice. @and_myself gave the answer I was looking for in a comment. I can not vote up answers or comments yet :( – Cyriac Antony Jan 5 at 5:06

For questions like the one you posted, Mathematics SE would be best because it seems the question you linked got very well received on mathematics and was definitely related to math. If you're having a hard time figuring out if it is related enough to writing to be on-topic on Writing SE, you should probably just post it on mathematics where you know it's on-topic.
