Use \dfrac for bigger fractions.

When you try and rep somebody and it says "Please rate some other member" because you've recently repped them.

I know that you're just having fun, but don't create multiple threads for it, you don't want to spam the maths forum. I've merged your threads together, keep it all in this one.

The 'd' isn't a variable, in my opinion, so should be textified.
