Bug Possibly?

I am not able to tag people when writing notes but can so when commenting. Can the Brilliant staff look into this? Thanks. @Dan Krol, @Sam Solomon

Hi @Sharky Kesa - that is the intended behavior for now. We may change it in the future, but we wanted to start by implementing @mentions only for comments. Suyeon Khim Staff · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Sharky Kesa Yup, you're correct. And we can't tag even when posting problems, and that's why I think they've not allowed it. Wouldn't it loo quite awkward if everybody tags their (I know 'their' is wrong English since everyone is singular, but I was confused with him & her, so I chose their instead) problems and notes with all people so that it can get a greater amount of viewers, and consequently, a faster rating. So, in my opinion, we shouldn't be able to tag in notes and problems, simply to maintain the decorum of the site. Wouldn't you get annoyed if everybody tags their questions with your name, just to get it rated faster? @Sharky Kesa Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Satvik Golechha By the way, 'everybody tags their...' is a perfectly grammatical sentence [although your English teacher may disagree] and has been used in English for a long time. It's also a good way to avoid awkward phrases like 'his or her' etc. Mursalin Habib · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Mursalin Habib I thought as much. And no, the teacher wouldn't disagree unless they weren't as adept in English as they should be. Sharky Kesa · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Sharky Kesa How in the world will you know??

I'll also delete mine till then, but don't you think there should be a 'Gender' option in the account settings. I agree that most people have obvious first names, but then, there are obviously some names which can be used for both. (BTW, you were born in India, right?) Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Sharky Kesa And you weren't probably named in India, since we generally don't see people named 'Sharky' in India..... Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Krishna Ar No, I'm not gonna solve 30 questions of the same type........but I've solved probably 1 in 6 or so........ Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha And, do you know calculus?How aboutZeta function then?(How did you solve that q) @Satvik Golechha. Anyway, I still dread the stat part of R.D.S and havent touched it :(. How did you solve that remainder quesiton?- Guess or proper approach? Krishna Ar · 3 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar @Krishna Ar, I don't even know what calculus is about, although I've heard there are things like differentiation and integration. And I don't know anything such as the Zeta function, although I've seen Sharky use it many a time. That Zeta question was solved because I had the opportunity to make some guesses, and the first guess I made was indeed the correct answer! The remainder question, I must admit, was asked (by me) from a teacher..... :DPP Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha Oh...Ok! @Satvik Golechha . You have people to whom you can put your questions, I don't. Anyway, do you wokr(school) on saturdays? How could you have asked the same question without seeing it? intuition:-O? Oh, well, I am sure you would have an idea about how calculus is spelt though! :P :P. And, for once, the grammatical syntax in your last sentence is not correct!. @Sharky Kesa - How did you sharpen your skills in topics like Number theory, Inequalities, Geometry and the like...Please don't say R.D.S/NCERT ( I know you use them) . Thnx! Krishna Ar · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Krishna Ar @Krishna Ar Nobody will care about her or his grammatical syntax after coming from a grueling journey. And I'll really appreciate your sending questions to me, so that I can forward them to my teachers, and send the answers to you. Yup, I've schools on Saturday. Satvik Golechha · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Satvik Golechha Bunking refers to missing school - doesnt it? Krishna Ar · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar Actually it does not..........Bunking is missing the classes (or whatever) without a certain reason, and missing it when we can attend it........BTW I didn't miss school, I went there after school... Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

On a related note, it is not possible to tag certain people. Try tagging Nikhil Pandya. Mursalin Habib · 3 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Mursalin Habib @Nikhil Pandya @Mursalin Habib Yeah, there are some issues with when you need to type more than a first name to find the person you are looking for.

The way to get around this is to actually omit the space and type straight through from first to last name, unfortunately for Nikhil, you have to type all the way to @nikhilpandy before he is the only person in the list. However, due to context aware searching, if you follow Nikhil or Nikhil is associated with the thing you're commenting on (posted the post or wrote a comment) he should show up towards the top.
