[math] prefix in the offtopic Issue Tools

[math] prefix in the offtopic
Addition of a [Math] tag in the off topic forum

I was thinking that a [Math] tag in the off-topic would be a very nice and useful feature. While we do have the Space Math & Physics forum, there are many times when math posts have nothing to do with space, and therefore get thrown in the off-topic. It would nicely complement the [Science] prefix

heh, is there _any_ branch of math not linked to space?

This is just one example of the many that I could give without a lot of search. http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=20195

While many problems can be made to relate to space, many are not directly related. You can apply the notecard problem to space, but it is not a problem about space. There is a difference.

Agreed. On another note: the forum is called "Space Math and Physics" and yet there is much talk about biology...

Hi fireballs,

Thank you for the suggestion. I am not necessarily opposed to adding a math prefix, but I didn't realize math discussions were even being posted in the Off-Topic forum. I see your point about some math not necessarily being about space topics, but on the other hand, the 'Off-Topic' forum and the 'Space Math & Physics' forum are both in the off-topic category. Let's see if tblaxland has any thoughts on this after the weekend before adding a new prefix.

fireballs619's proposal sounds reasonable to me. [Math] Prefix has been added.
