# Hard reference to mention people who have repeatedly used usernames

Have you ever experienced this on your moments in BRILLIANCE?

Well, I have got a solution for you. You first search for a note where the user has been mentioned at least once

I used Yajat Shamji's BRILLIAthon for the process (Percy Jackson was mentioned once or twice before the process)

The rest of the steps are below:

The whole thing replacing the name, including the mention[$\text{number}$:$\text{user}$] should be pasted and an @ should be placed at the front. An example for all the above cases is given below

This can mention the exact person in any comment thread/solution properly

Peace, and stay brilliant in BRILLIANT!

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.

@Hamza Anushath, mention[10427613:Hamza Anushath]

👍🏾

- 3 weeks, 2 days ago

You got it

- 3 weeks, 2 days ago

Quite good, huh?

- 3 weeks, 2 days ago

I've mentioned you in Hardest Riddle Ever, find it on my feed @Hamza Anushath

- 3 weeks, 2 days ago

I saw it, you can now mention me on even the most obscure note on the planet of BRILLIANT

- 3 weeks, 2 days ago

Check the first .gif if you may please @Percy Jackson, you will understand the real reason why I made this note. The drop-down cannot show all the "percy jackson"s in Brilliant, so it only shows the first five or six. As you can see,

you are not there

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes, also I'm the 50% subject of the note as both GIF's mention me LOL

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Another thing - I'm the real Percy Jackson, as no-one else has an exact profile of Percy like me. (With the prof pic)

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes, that is true

But still, I can't find out your profile from the list, can I?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

you can find his name from list

- 1 week, 1 day ago

That's here, try mentioning him in an area where he is not there, and see for yourself @Nathan Soliman :)

Maybe make a new note and try...

@Hamza Anushath, I need to mention Feng Li (AUS, 43).

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Search for him in the search box

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I did. Not there.

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

If he did, could you send me a link?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I need the number in your technique - how do you get that?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I gave all the Explanations, didn't I?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

You didn't show how to get the number!

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

See the second .gif in my explanation, you can understand it there @Yajat Shamji...

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Actually, I did

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Did you figure it out @Yajat Shamji?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes! Although, next time, make your GIF's larger (without having to use the zoom button).

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

How do I do that?

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I don't know! Ask @Brilliant Mathematics

- 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Hi Yajat. I've copied my comment from here:

Hi David, you can increase size of your image/gif by adding this string:

I've done it for you. ;)

@Siddharth Chakravarty - Are you commenting here and then deleting it, because my notifications say so. Also there is an instance of you, to easily mention you, even though, you haven't posted anything here, which further adds to the fact that you commented here and then deleted it. State your business LOL

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

I was just experimenting if this works, so I was mentioning a few people whom I couldn't. After it worked I deleted the comments.

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Oh, ok, it is a good trick!

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

I am very glad that it worked for you as well @Siddharth Chakravarty, I too was having problems in mentioning @Percy Jackson's name

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes, my title is highly sought after, but it is my title :) @Hamza Anushath

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes, thanks a lot.

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

@Hamza Anushath - In the math jokes page, I mentioned seven random people with the names of the seven and wrote the prophecy LOL, not one responded LOL

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Yes, I noticed that

I was about to choke in laughter

Who pulled out that trick, Anna, or Andrew @Percy Jackson?

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

That was me(Anna) Hehehe, they are like 22 - 25 year olds LOL

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

I'm Anna, but this is my friend Andrew's account, my account is glitchy, so I use his after asking his permission :)

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

I believe that it is "their" name, not his name @Siddharth Chakravarty

Two people own one account according to my belief, Anna and Andrew

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

He just lets me use it for fun, he owns it not me, and I'm tired of using his account, so im thinking of deleting my glitchy account and making a new one!

- 2 weeks, 1 day ago

@Hamza Anushath,i was also facing the same problem,your method helped me alot. Thankyou!

- 1 week, 6 days ago

You are most welcome @Kriti Kamal!

- 1 week, 6 days ago

@Hamza Anushath - Why is your name Frisk Dreemurr and why is everything in your profile different??? Its like someone took over your account.

Edit after 10 mins -

Frisk Dreemurr - some character in undertale

Me: Dam the gods! I should've known it was somethiing to do with undertale.....................................................

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Enough stop the host is frisk pacifist genocide thingy, my mind is officially spaghetti!

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Savior of monsters, are you actually admitting that you are on the monsters side during the wars? @Frisk Dreemurr

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, I admit it very much. It isn't something to be guilty of, isn't it?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

It is in my universe. And I don't want a Undertale - Percy Jackson Universe Crossover :)

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Hahaha, very true

I don't want to fight with six demigods, do I @Percy Jackson?

P.S. I followed your advice on the host thingy; people can differentiate between us using common sense, can't they? I do sound like a 7 year old when I say "Host is Frisk"

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, and its actually ten - Me, the rest of the seven + Nico, Thalia and Reyna - THe ultimate demigod team.

Yuur team is a flirty girl(Frisk), a piece of papyrus, a flower with no feelings, a queen who hates her husband(not sure on this one), some monster name after a font(sans serif), an undying person who can die, even though its name is Undyne and some more of these similiar people :)

- 1 week, 4 days ago

@Frisk Dreemurr - You like Asriel don't you??? LOL XD

if you haven't seen that reply yet, I know that you flirt too much

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, he is kind of like a brother to me, but he couldn't come to the surface, sadly... He is scared he would change to Flowey sooner or later.
