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.

While I really like the new format, I think the problems from those days were much better. I would be happy if 4-8 problems were given by the brilliant staff every week while maintaining the current format.

We should have the old format as the main page and be able to access the new format on a different page.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I agree. This would probably be the best way to satisfy both parties.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I completely agree with this.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I agree.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I agree.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Firmly agrees.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

No.. the current one is better!

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Not at all

- 7 years, 3 months ago

U like 4 problems on each topic per week??...

- 7 years, 3 months ago

and in a week if u were able 2 solve all then i hope u shold not be on lvl 3

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I can also slve lev 4 sums in this current format to increase my lev but I can't do them(so I don't deserve more than lev 3)... In this current format u can score a lot of points

- 7 years, 3 months ago

But what is use of those point??

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I know there's nothing to do with these points.... but tell me what will u do with these ratings? ...

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I think the staff members know better which one is good... so just leave it to them. If they feel like changing it they can...

- 7 years, 3 months ago

They were vry tough indeed

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Yea that's y I don't like it

- 7 years, 3 months ago

- 7 years, 3 months ago

yes i remember but few topics were combined together

- 7 years, 3 months ago

The current one and the earlier one can coexist.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Is this the old one,That one was amazing i really like that...

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Yes, I can recall,,, With 4 problems each every week, and next week new problems,, The discussions were given besides and on its top was the comparison bar,,, The most amazing thing was the leaderboard given bellow each section,, It was really a craze to see your name in top 10 or 20,,,,,,

- 7 years, 3 months ago

true

- 7 years, 3 months ago

It was incredible,seriously! I am in.But not just four problem ,A little bit more.I assume,could be good for everybody...I think-How old is BRILLIANT...

- 7 years, 3 months ago

100% in Favor..

- 7 years, 3 months ago

It has been mentioned in AoPS (and I totally agree with this) that the new format is way less instructive. In an attempt to make Brilliant less boring, I think the new site is more boring in that problem quality has sunk. There are many good things however as I have pointed out in an e-Mail to @Peter Taylor. I hope Brilliant can remind us of those gold old days again!

- 7 years, 3 months ago

My supports to you

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I suggested a new way to implement both formats. But so far staff did not respond.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I like the old format. It's much harder to find good problems these days.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

- 7 years, 3 months ago

It's Good

- 7 years, 3 months ago

new rule for 100 points for each question should be changed and points should be according to the difficulty level of questions

- 7 years, 3 months ago

ME!

- 7 years, 3 months ago

yes!!

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I am in favour of the old format.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

The old format was several times better!!!!!!!

- 7 years, 3 months ago

I personally like the really really old format - the one with only three categories ("Algebra and Number Theory", "Geometry and Combinatorics", and "Mechanics, Electricity, and Magnetism") and eight problems to solve per week - the best. There was no rating system; you leveled up by correctly answering 15 out of 16 problems within any given section. (I personally preferred this better, because nowadays it's so hard to level up that the average rating on problems now usually caps out at Level 4 which drags down user ratings overall. Also, you could get three tries and it wouldn't matter whether you used one try or all three to get the problem correct.)

Of course, this format has its benefits too, but, eh, to each his own.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

the old page must be brought back

- 7 years, 3 months ago

It's been a year, but other people on Brilliant might want to see this.

- 5 years, 12 months ago

Hey....could u tell me about the previous format of brilliant??? I joined in jan and I don't know much abt it....

- 7 years, 3 months ago

See Dinesh Chavan's comment below.

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Or else Above

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Before few months,there were 4 weekly challenge for all topics .

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Weekly challenge as in???

- 7 years, 3 months ago

Yes agreed ...... The previous format was well time bound and most important , MEASURABLE ! In the new format , there's no limitation and thus we don't get the feeling of contentment even if we solve 100 problems a day ... Previous format was cool and after completing the Weekly challenges this feeling of contentment was there ... Now though there are more problems and scope for users to submit problems , its not at all better than the previous !

- 7 years, 3 months ago

What about a referendum to decide it?

- 7 years, 3 months ago

i think old one was a diamond and the present one is lead...

- 7 years, 2 months ago

@Anubhav Singh I am curious to know whose feed is this because the ratings are way good.
