# Corrections to Problems

Whenever a correction is made to a problem, I get an e-mail that says:

We took a second look at your answer to "". Your answer was correct even though we originally marked it as wrong.

The title of the problem is always missing. Can this be fixed?

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.

In my experience this often accompanies the problem's being taken down (or at least I can't find the problem in my feed anymore when I look for it). Maybe that's just a coincidence.

Yeah! I noticed the same. And also, how are you so unbelievably good at math? I am so used to seeing that fat cat in the "Previous Solvers" box that it's insane!!
