# Level Pending/Unrated?

On Brilliant I have been working hard as well as posting some questions. You know how questions have to be "approved" by a staff (I think) right? My very first question was "approved"/rated in about a week. I also posted another problem which was approved within about 1 day! But then, there are a couple of questions which have not been approved/rated and it has been a long, long time!

Is there some kind of way the questions get approved? Does it depend on anything? Do the questions get approved depending on popularity?

I need to know, please.

A problem doesn't have to be "approved". You will see the problem displayed on your feed, and also in the corresponding difficulty in the Community Feed - All.

We release the level of a problem when we have enough information to get a sense of it. This, in turn, is dependent on the number (and type) of people that view and attempt your question. If your problem doesn't attract many attempts, then it would take us much longer to be able to state the level of the problem. (As a rough guideline, wait for 10-20 people to attempt the problem)
