A nice way to implement new and old Brilliant formats together

Few days ago brilliant changed the old format and implemented news feed. Though staff members never responded to this, many people looked unhappy about this but on the other hand many people are very happy about this. Personally, I prefer the old format by the way.

Here I want to suggest a way around this problem. Brilliant can classify all problems into two categories : official problems and unofficial problems. After that user could be given a choice like "Show only official problems." I think everybody would be happy if this gets implemented. If you agree with this then please keep resharing.

I also request brilliant staff to please respond to this.

Thank you

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Eh... I dunno. I don't think that exact format would be too successful. On the other hand, if we had two different screens where one was just the usual feed, and the others were the sets of problems for the week, that would be much better.

Yeah, something like that, a clearer demarcation between the two than "rated" and "unrated". But, it's all the same idea.
