# Emails

I enjoy getting regular emails from Brilliant about problems that might interest me, but today I noticed I got 3 of the same...

Attached is a screenshot of my inbox. Any reason why this would happen?

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.

Now I've seen this at the top of my page:

I'll go through the process I guess, but I'm not sure why this is happening. I haven't done anything weird since yesterday.

Hey, I also got the same email some time ago. I even sent an email to brilliant but no reply.

@Justin Wong @Guiseppi Butel and @Anuj Shikarkhane -- I'm very sorry about this bug. We have fixed it and hopefully for good this time...

Staff - 6 years ago

Yeah, I had this as well.

- 6 years ago

Ok....Good

Hey, me too! I've been getting this thing too

- 6 years ago

It is gone now, right?

Staff - 6 years ago

It is gone for me. Thanks.

Same here.

Same here. I also noticed they send emails at the weirdest hours of the day.

- 6 years ago

Not really. Just depends on time zone.

- 6 years ago

Not really. I've gotten it from 0504 till 2322 hrs.

@ZhiJie Goh the exact time that you receive an email is out of our control, more or less. We are working on a few items that will make the time you receive notifications from Brilliant more precise.

Alright thanks!

I also got the same email 3 times. I think there's any bug.

- 6 years ago

Sorry about that happening. It is likely an error on our part. I will get someone to look into this.
