# Dear Brilliant;

After reading through your 'about page', I was wondering if you would ever produce a site that incorporates all,or most, of the core academic subjects such as English, History, Geography, Chemistry, Biology, Languages etc?

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.

@Samuel Barmby , I would Prefer B'ant to be a math and Physics dominated site. This is because, These are the main subjects asked for in Olympiads. For the Rest Of the subjects, Other Internet Sources are more than Enough! :)

Strongly Agree!

So do I, that is what I was trying to say with my second comment. I agree that Brilliant should be exclusively for Mathematics and Science, it makes sense.

Ok, thanks. How does one access G+?

Ah, you were referring to Goggle plus; I thought that you were alluding to a special conversational application that Brilliant offered. I am afraid that I do not have a google account, although I might be able to aquire one. Thank you for the infomation.

Welcome!

Good point, it never helps when my keyboard obscures the text I am typing. Also, Swapnil Das and Mehul Arora, I like your idea of a logical reasoning section.

Despite my love of all academic subjects, one does have to agree with your logic; brilliant provides an excellent service that utilises the beauty of Mathematics, Science and Economics, thus creating a cohesive, cogent and intelligent system that intellectually stimulates us all, without the need of introducing other academic subjects. Moreover, it does ultimatly enable brilliant to be a 'brainy site'- a factor that all brilliant users must love.

Also, what system does one use to display one's Mathematical solution, or question for that matter, due to the fact that I have numerous solutions to the questions on brilliant, but can not display them.

P.S: By the way, I do love Mathematics and Science and I will be competing in the forthcomming BMO( I have never got a question wrong!) Thank you for both of your comments.

No, please don't make Brilliant like that! Let it be a Brainy site! Don't feel bad, followed U!
