# Ameya's Message Board

Say anything you have in your mind! This is for an informal conversation!

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.

@milind prabhu, I don't know why, but my Gmail suddenly crashed! Sorry for the inconvenience!

@Christopher Boo, did you try my set on RMO & INMO? I was inspired by you!

- 6 years, 5 months ago

Nice "Trickster" set that you collected. Good collection of diverse problems.

Also, could you change the fire question to Which State Of Matter Is Fire? There is a better discussion on that problem.

Staff - 6 years, 5 months ago

Yes! I have done that. Thank You!

Can you tell me how to make a hash-tag @Sam Solomon? Also, in some problems posted by @Arron Kau, I saw a faint line after the problem below which, details & assumptions were written. Can you also tell me how to construct that line?

Edit: Calvin was here.

To construct a line to separate your paragraphs, place 5 "-" without spaces. I've edited your note so that you can see it.

I am really thankful for your support @Calvin Lin. But can you tell me how to create a hash-tag?

- 6 years, 5 months ago

You can add tags when you create a problem, note or set. We have not added hashtags to comments as yet, and may add more functionality later.
