A suggestion to make Brilliant better

Hey people,

I have a suggestion which I think can make Brilliant even better..

I think a feature of initiating a private conversation with someone should be introduced. Talking to people in random notes gets messy...

Often, the topic I have to discuss is off-topic in context to that particular note.

So you see, if I need some guidance from someone I think can guide me(like, chemistry for example, not many people on Brilliant follow chemistry), then I have a hesitation in asking my doubt in a random note, or starting a dedicated note for that little doubt doesn't seem worthy....

What do you guys think about it?

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.

This question has been asked in other forms in the very recent past. Getting some chat boxes type of stuff would make this crowdy. So..

You post notes about your doubts, anyone would surely help you!

That's a cool feature but it would definitely take some time to implement.

So, for the time being you can connect with other Brilliant users on social media. Most of them are available on facebook and google plus.

Ya, even we all have created group hangouts on G+ consisting around 40 brilliantians.

For those of you who are interested in building out Chemistry on Brilliant, and would be willing to spend time writing up great wiki pages over the next month, please send me an email (Calvin@Brilliant.org).
