# Messageboard - I

Hello Everyone ! This is my first messageboard. I've been on Brilliant for about 5 months from now, and I have found it interesting, due to a variety of reasons from very tough problems to skillfull members of this community.

You guys are welcome to leave any messages or questions for me here. I would be glad to see them.

Regards, Karthik

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.

What do you like about Brilliant?
What else would you like to see on Brilliant?

Staff - 6 years, 2 months ago

Brilliant has been the most wonderful online math community I had ever entered. It provides good baseline for improvement in maths and physics. The things I like about it are many - friendly and helpful members, a well organised system for posting problems, reports, comments,etc.. and on the whole, the website has been beautifully crafted.

What I do like to see on Brilliant are more extensively written Wikis (Most of the Wikis contain just definitions, nothing else), real time math competitions organised, some videos uploaded on major topics like Newtons Sums, Vieta formula, etc.. and finally, I think Brilliant$^{2}$ must have more features other than just quizzes, their solutions and stats viewing.

Sir, I do understand constraints the staff face, but for the community sake, I would be happy if atleast some of my suggestions are implemented.

Thanks!

We are working on developing the Wikis further. Given that they were only started 8 months ago, I think we have a great amount of content, though it is spread across a large number of pages. We encourage everyone to contribute their ideas to the wikis. If you have a particular area of interest, I would welcome you to add your knowledge so that others can benefit.

We will take your suggestions into consideration when developing further features.

Staff - 6 years, 2 months ago

Thanks sir. I will try my best to contribute to the Wikis on topics I know well in free time.

u r v v intelligent all level 5!

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Nothing like that brother. I cannot do problems of a wide variety, I just stick to the type of problems I know pretty well. At times, I get really lucky with a reasonable guess.

me too

Do you like Carrots?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I do consider "liking carrots" or "asking someone that they like carrots or not" as a sign of being a "Kaboobly Doist" :P. By the way, I don't like carrots much.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Have you ever eaten "Gajar ka Halwa"?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Yes, I have and I hate it due to an excessive quantity of ghee and carrots in it.

Cheers! xD :P

How have you mastered Computer Science ( to a pretty fair extent) at such a young age?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Nope, I did not master it. I used to learn Mathematica and Arduino in the past two years during my holidays, for fun. I just implemented all the programming knowledge I gathered in these years in Computer Science problems on Brilliant. I still keep making mistakes while writing programs :/.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Level 5 in CS means you must be pretty great in Python or C++.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Lol, I am a below average Python Programmer. I even don't know C++. I mostly prefer using Mathematica, and 90% of the CS problems I solved on Brilliant are with Mathematica. I rarely use Python.

Hi Karthik

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Hello, lol.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Hello!!!

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Hello Nihar XD !

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Ur great Karthik . In such a young age u reached level 5 ineverything . I am only level 5 in algebra

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Lol Gogul, why jokes ? Being my friend and classmate, everyone knows you are better than me in all possible aspects. If you spent more time on Brilliant than I spend, I am damn sure that you will be level 5 in every possible subject on Brilliant. You have an incredible capacity to grasp things fastly and correctly. Just stop being sarcastic, you are great, not me.
