Interesting question Tim. The staff of Brilliant receive varied salutations from the diverse constituency on this site.

Truthfully we are not very picky. We care much more about being adressed respectfully and amiably than we care about any kind of formal adress. We do not mind being called "Sir," but it is also not necessary.

Perhaps when we have full-time support staff we will give them clever titles, and they will have a very specific way of being adressed. If you have any ideas let me know.

For now, feel free to adress the staff by our names. E.g. I am Peter. When contacting support@brilliant.org ask for Bradan, and if there is a need to adress us generally, just say, "hello out there" or "to whom it may concern," or really whatever you feel like.
