I think that the criteria for the leaderboard should be changed.!!! Every week i workout very hard and do almost all the questions ...but leader board is always filled with those who have lot of points.I didn't have many because i signed up so late on brilliant. There should be some other criteria so that everyone can get a chance for leaderboard.

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.

Yeah, like the least time taken for the user to solve all 4 questions after pressing the "Start Weekly Challenge".

Do you really know the criteria for the leaderboard? You signed up in 2012, and I did it in 2013, but I have appeared twice (or probably more) in the leaderboard, so there's no reason for late sign up.

yeah...i too appear but i can't figure out how they are ranking people....because sometimes I complete the problems on the first day itself....hmm but I don't get my name in the ranking...and earlier it would be top 50 but now there's top 20....wait....I used to get in the top 20(just in my defense)...

Where do I access the leaderboard?

I think the person's name should be on top and then the others.
