How do you lose rating?

I know you gain ratings but how do you lose them. Few things come to mind:
1. (not true) The ratings are timed out, i.e you lose them after a fixed period such as two weeks
2. (true) You gain ratings by solving problems correctly but you lose ratings for answering a problem incorrectly
3. (not true) you lose ratings by opening up a problem and then giving up and exiting that problem without a solution

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.

Do you mean rating? You don't lose points. If you do mean rating, then i) isn't true. Only ii) is true

:/ I misread the ii) part. Only the first part is true. I'm pretty sure the second part of ii) (the opening a question part) is false. You don't lose rating (I think) for just looking at a question. The only way to lose ratings (Again not sure) is by answering a question wrong.
