I've talked to Peter Taylor about implementing a new "Discover people to follow" page, and he talked about it being changed "in the very near future". That was three weeks ago. The page has been the same for the three months that I've been on this site, and I think it would be good if it changed. Here's what it's at right now:
Yan Yau Cheng
Ammar Fathin Sabili
Chung Gene Keun
Every single one of these users were excellent... three months ago. Not to offend ANYBODY at all, once again these are all EXCELLENT users. But some people are hardly active, other's rarely post problems, still others hardly ever post problems. For example, Nicolae hasn't touched Brilliant in three and a half weeks (as of today). Ahaan hasn't posted a problem of his own in TWO MONTHS. Yan Yau has only posted five of his own problems. There are some really phenomenal users out there like Pi Han Goh, Sreejato Battacharya, and Zi Song Yeoh who all post tons of great problems, interact almost daily with other users, and post astounding solutions. They have an average of about 440 followers. But Brilliant can fix this! There are at least two ways to go about solving this. If you guys think of other ways, share! We can:
Recycle the "Discover people to follow" page. Turn it into a "See who's trending" page. Every day it would update, to see who has been the best couple of users that day, or just whoever's been uploading and solving and posting solutions to problems.
Keep the page, but change the people on it. Tell me what users you want to see for each category!
Again, this is not to offend ANYBODY! I will AGAIN STATE: all of the users that are currently on the page are great! But there are tons of people who work really hard and add a lot to the community who are going almost completely unrecognized. Reshare this note so that everybody can have their say!
