Brilliant bugtest part 2

this note is part 2 of the research whether there truly is a bug in the save and ping system

theory: if you put a comment in somebody's note you will receive pings from it whether you have saved it or not. we believe this might be a bug and will forward our findings to Brilliant mathematics once done.

current assumption: when u unsubscribe u will get only pings if someone replies to a post that u wrote or if "@" with your name is used.

findings: if a post is deleted then the replies are still there, but invisible and cannot be deleted.
-> so they still get pinged even if they deleted all their other posts

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.
