An Alternative.....

In view of the fact that Brilliant.org has been unable to cope with the growing popularity and the subsequent prize price rise I'd like to suggest an alternative. Even the people in lower levels would like to have some prize to solve problems for. An alternative is that brilliant.org provides certificates. A good certificate can be a better momento than a lanyard and the cost of mailing it would be affordable for brilliant.. What do you think????

And the certificate's price could even be adjusted to what level problems you are at. That way, it's within everyone's reach equally. Bob Krueger · 4 years, 4 months ago

Hello all,

This seems like a popular idea. Certificates will be incorporated in some shape or form, into the next iteration of the points exchange. Peter Taylor Staff · 4 years, 4 months ago

I wholeheartedly support this kind of idea, perhaps someday these certificates may even have some weight behind them for university applications, to help differentiate oneself from others. David Buchanan · 4 years, 4 months ago

Well.nice idea.I support you but please express what do you want them to certify-amount of points or your levels. Soham Dibyachintan · 4 years, 4 months ago

Good thoght bro.But what can you possibly gain from the certificates? What will they certify?That you've earned X amount of points? Soham Chanda · 4 years, 4 months ago

@Soham Chanda Yeah. Exactly. The points system is just a way of seeing how much you've been able to do while with brilliant. It says, "You've solved a lot of challanging problems. Congratulations." For some, it's better than just doing problems out of a book. Bob Krueger · 4 years, 4 months ago

@Bob Krueger Which would turn Brilliant into some sort of an international standard, not just a math and physics site. Good thing actually. :) Francis Gerard Magtibay · 4 years, 4 months ago

@Bob Krueger Yeah but see,solving many problems(as you've said "...solved a lot of ...") of level 1 isn't equivalent to solving a few problems of level 4 or 5.How can you classify this? Soham Chanda · 4 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Soham Chanda The certificate could specify a level. But the fact that someone who is at level one was able to solve so many problems is just as impressive to that person as someone solving several level five problems. It's all relative. The fact is, unless you are at the top level, brilliant keeps you at the highest level you can handle, so that way it's challanging for everybody, no matter how good they are. So, you're wrong, in the fact that solving many problems in level one isn't equivalent to solving a few problems of level 4 or 5, except for the point values assigned. Read my post above for that.
