Brilliant Community

Hi everyone, the word is out that the community function of brilliant will be discontinued by July 2. The time brilliant community resumes is currently unknown, yet it is a good function and I still want to stay in contact with you guys.

So is there a substitution website for brilliant community? If not, can anyone create one? Or would Padlet and Email be helpful as well? Comment below if you have any ideas!

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.

Hi! Fellow members. This is CS. I probably have provided the most solutions in this community. I am from Malaysia. I will be proposing to a local university to host this community. If the proposal get through I would need as many of us to join the new community. Hope that everyone will support then.

There are also some good problems posted by other users years ago who used to be active. I am not sure how I can reach them without the contact. However, I can try recovering some questions I find interesting. I'm currently browsing. @Michael Mendrin is one of the STEM artists I showed a lot of appreciation to as he is super creative with the questions.

@Brilliant Mathematics Are the discussions going to be deleted? Or will community members still be able to comment on old discussions? I am really disappointed the community is going away...

One question though: can you leave the community unmanaged, but it would be still there?

Jeff Giff - 2 weeks, 1 day ago

I think that the old discussions will be (unfortunately) deleted or else brilliant would not have given an option to download....

I just wrote a note to the Brilliant staff-- I don't expect a change of heart, but I thought I'd share.


Hello Brilliant staff,

I understand that your decision to "sunset" the community features may be necessary, as a business needs to delineate its niche deliberately. I am sure that many will profit from your online courses. You do great work as educators.

Still, I'd like to express my disappointment. Brilliant was also a platform for those who liked to "play" more freely with mathematics, and we had much fun exchanging and challenging each other. The open format attracted several participants who came for this, both learners and some of us more seasoned contributors, who gave you some of the most exciting content for free. We will miss that. While your staff members write great solutions, they sometimes miss out on the truly brilliant ones-- the ones that are real eye-openers and clever out-of-the-box thinking.

As a former participant of various STEM contests and past tutor of gifted students, I am naturally thinking of the "happy few" who really excel in these fields and think truly creatively. From all appearances, you had many of those participating in the community interaction; and I think you will lose this small but exciting group by narrowing to a more organized teaching model. They are losing the platform they had on Brilliant.

Anyway, I suspect that the changes you are (and have been) making are based on a deliberate shift to a broader, more mainstream audience. That is your prerogative; but you will miss out on some of the more exciting and brilliant thoughts and thinkers.

All the best, - Arjen Vreugdenhil

Agent T - 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Not to be pessimistic, but the tone of the article gives me the feel that they won’t be opening community again unless some miracle were to happen (imagine the amount of information they are losing by doing this which can not be brought back again if my server theory is right), five years minimum before reopening is what I would say

Jason Gomez - 2 weeks, 1 day ago

@A Former Brilliant Member In my opinion the interaction was what made Brilliant such a wonderful resource. I am not saying the courses are bad, they are top notch, but discussing a problem with many people lets us learn many tools to solve problems. I don't know much about Khan Academy as I used it in 8th class for a month or so after which I came to know about Brilliant and felt this has content which suits me more.

AoPS Community (the one @Zakir Husain mentioned/possible substitution 2) has a user-created forum functionality. Someone should create an "Old Brilliant Community" forum where we can regroup. :)

Exactly sir! Could you mention all the contributors in RadMaths and tell them this idea?

Jeff Giff - 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

Sure thing. I couldn't figure out how to mention Aman Rajput and Chew-Seong Cheong though. Hopefully I got the rest right (if you meant to mention them here and not in RadMaths itself that is...).

Yeah, good idea.

@Jeff Giff Reddit is an option. A brilliant.org subreddit.

How about running a forum or something? (with a free hoster, or a paid one, if someone can pull that off?)

Will the vibe be the same though? And how do we post all our problems on reddit?

Krishna Karthik - 1 week, 5 days ago

Log in to reply

The vibe won't be the same, but we can post problems where there would usually be memes. Anyway, now it's either AoPS or the proposal CS sir has made gets through and the university hosts Brilliant. Idk man, this whole situation just sucks. Now they've given me free premium as a compensation because I was a member of the community...

@A Former Brilliant Member Damn... all this while, my premium was paid. How do I switch to free?

@Krishna Karthik Idk, I got a mail from Brilliant. There was a big green button 'Activate Premium'. I clicked it, my premium got activated. btw I sent you a friend request on aops

@A Former Brilliant Member It's quite sad. Almost like when Rovio took down its old Angry Birds games. The one good thing they had going for them.

No community = no brilliant.

Krishna Karthik - 1 week, 5 days ago

@Krishna Karthik Yeah. The one thing that gives me happiness though, is that the community came up with ideas so quickly.

Maybe we can make a discord server, and we can create different channels (different sub-chat groups) for example Algebra Channel, Physics Channel, General Talk Channel, etc.

We started in AoPS. Lot of members joined and forum is going to be made in 2 weeks. The link is possible replacement 2 in the note.

The website just destroyed itself by stabbing its community in the back. Tens of Thousands of original problems and solutions just deleted for what exactly? I will Never renew a premium membership. What a joke.

Valentin Duringer - 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

I mean yeah, not being able to maintain the community anymore is understandable but there is still no excuse for deleting these problems.. It's a shame because I spent most of the time doing courses, and only discovered this community fairly recently.

Tomislav Franov - 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

But with the premium membership, you just get access to the Premium courses and download them offline, get additional practice problems, and view the Archived Daily Challenges. Rest all the features including the community ones are available to all users so they aren't taking anything that they offer you in premium so why don't you want to renew it?

Log in to reply

Because brilliant just made itself nearly worthless to users like Valentin. All the time we spent on the community... WASTED. No one can access to this precious data after they delete the tab. Therefore to Valentin (and me) the brilliant website is now completely useless.

Jeff Giff - 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Jeff Giff I agree with the same, I used to come for the community only most of the time but she said about premium so I thought what does premium features got to do with the community.

Log in to reply

Wait what do you mean that the problems and solutions got deleted?

When I checked, they were still there.

Lisa Liu - 2 weeks ago

They will get deleted on July 2 though..

Tomislav Franov - 2 weeks ago

@Tomislav Franov I think so they will be not accepting New submissions, and you won't be able to use the Community features like commenting or writing a solution on the already existing ones.

Log in to reply

@Siddharth Chakravarty But they said they will literally delete the community tab..

Tomislav Franov - 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Tomislav Franov I guess they will remove the 'Community' button from the menu of the hamburger or the three-lined icon button on the top right and also the page corresponding to it, but the discussions and problems will be still there. I am mailing them to know accurately.

Log in to reply

@Siddharth Chakravarty I hope so since there is some of the problems I really wanted to try but I didn't really have the time to, like Dynamic Geometry or Hot Integrals for example.

Tomislav Franov - 2 weeks ago

@Tomislav Franov I have a premium membership to support the site, since i used it a lot, even though i used the community section almost exclusively. Now this site decided to make itself useless. Pathetic.

Valentin Duringer - 2 weeks ago

@Valentin Duringer Hmm, I agree.

@Siddharth Chakravarty Yeah, I really love solving community problems on a certain topic and search a keyword on search bar to find related resources

SRIJAN Singh - 2 weeks ago

I agree. The community made Brilliant special. This decision just shows how Brilliant is a for-profit organization and is only interested in expanding and increasing profit by targeting the features that more people use. Truly disappointing.

@Krishna Karthik

Context : Brilliant Community features going away. You'll see a notice every time you view your profile or go to the community tab. Read that. We are trying to move the community somewhere else to keep it alive. We started on AoPS (Art of Problem Solving). There's a Brilliant forum there, and some of us have joined, others are making accounts and joining. I don't know if you're online or not, but if you are, read this, read some of the comments, get some more context of this situation, and make an AoPS account to try and keep the community alive.

@Percy Jackson Brilliant community features going away? What the hell? Aw man... this is so stupid! I genuinely did some good work over here.

Imagine how regular posters like Steven Chase and Karan Chatrath will feel. What an absolute bummer.

I am not very much active in Brilliant for the last couple of months due to a tight academic schedule. Only today morning I got a mail from brilliant regarding the changes and I came here to check out more things happening. Does anyone get a mail from brilliant like me?

What is the use of downloading all our problems and solutions if we can't view them other than in brilliant?

Can we preview our problems and solutions after downloading and after July 2, 2021?

And what's the actual deadline for downloading the content?
