Thank you for the new feature! I see, though, "answer must be between 0 and 999". This is not true for Physics.

Like everything else, the user submitted problems feature is a work in progress and will continue to evolve. The constraint of integers between 0-999 insures that any problems you submit can be very efficiently integrated into our problem sets. It is also the version that we could make the quickest. If this feature seems popular, we will happily expand the types of answers that can be received so you can write more typical physics problems.
We look forward to reading the problems that all of you submit, and celebrating the contributions of the interesting people that use Brilliant.org.
Don't be shy. Send us a problem that you think is beautiful.

Hello, thank you for the response! Also, one of my problems got selected in a problem set this week, but I didn't get points for it. This is probably because I submitted it to Calvin before this feature was added. Is that why?
Will we be awarded points for submission?
Yes. As its mentioned you'll be "showered with points"
Yes, we will consider each problem submission on a case by case basis. If we choose to feature a submitted problem, we will assign it a point value based on it's difficulty and then multiply that amount by some factor to be awarded to the author/sharer.
If I submitted a problem this week, and it is not featured next week, does that mean it will never be featured?
Hey Zi Song, I'm not sure if mods have seen your previous questions. Why don't you mail the people at Brilliant?
When will someone reply to our problem? Next Monday?
I've submitted \(\ge 10\) problems last week but no one responded. When will (if selected) our submitted problems being featured? 1 week or more after submission?
i like that feature . i will try hard to submit difficult problems to brilliant
I've missed some small steps in my solution for Problem Contribution, what shall I do?
You should probably re-submit.
I bet no one can solve my problems
I thought spammers would spare the Brilliant community. Last thing i would want on this site is "Earn online money" or "Post these damned stories on 10 discussion threads" x-(
Sorry he got through Nishanth. We don't get many spammers on here. There are far easier sites out there to spam, than ours which requires an account signup to solve intimidating math problems.
That said, we will probably get more in the future as we grow. We will likely create the ability to have user moderators so that you could delete spam comments as they arrive. That would be better than down voting them and letting them stew overnight while we in America sleep.
