You guys have done an excellent job. There's a tonne of content, and it was smart to allow users to generate the content for you, and then mediate it with voting, etc. The wiki's are also really well done. Usually I (re)-learn most of what I need from them. If there was anything else you could do, I'm sure it would be only a minor tweak here and there. If I think of something, I'll send you a note.

But, really, you guys nailed game-ification of math/science. The only comment I would have, from a business perspective, is to expand it to other disciplines. Either do it in-house, or (probably better) license your platform to someone who wants to do it. Like biology, or possibly even the arts, like history or even English. There's no reason why it couldn't be done. I actually found your site after doing a 5-question English grammar quiz I found on Facebook. I found it really fun to test my skills. I then found a 150-question quiz that are given to immigrants to Canada for citizenship. I actually enjoyed doing a 150 question multiple choice test. haha... People love to test themselves. There's a need out there for other disciplines for sure.

I like the idea of a biology section. I can make biology problems....both mathematical and written response

I think online contests should also be held where participants compete in real time along with their friends, and give points according to their performance. That would be wonderful.

Can you post the answer to the question I just posted ? It would be nice if you tell us the solution.

I hardly can even sleep! Imagine leaving Brilliant for 8 hours.. then school. I'm always excited every dismissal so I can get to Brilliant again! (Though I try to sneak in to the computer lab and open Brilliant sometimes :D)
