\(\large{\color{Blue}{\textbf{Hello}}}\) everyone!

As the month of June leaves us, we look forward to the exciting month of July which has come to grace us with its presence. The wonderful Brilliant Community has been constantly amazing us with awesome problems and beautiful notes, as usual. Here are the highlights of the past month.


\[\large \mathbf{ NEW} \ \ \ \mathbf{ FEATURES } \ \ \ \mathbf{ TO } \ \ \ \mathbf{ BE } \ \ \ \mathbf{ EXCITED } \ \ \ \mathbf{ ABOUT } \]

As before, the dedicated and hard-working Brilliant staff have been working day and night to constantly and consistently improve this wonderful website. Impatiently waiting to here about what's in the spotlight this month? Let's begin!

New Comments Organization

All of you have seen the recent dramatic change in the look of the comments. Instead of the large grey boxes, each comment now occupies a smaller white space, and so the comment threads occupy less space. Also instead of being in response to XXX:, each comment to a specific person is designated by the @mention of that person, this also comes with the removal of timestamps.


\[\large \mathbf{ THE } \ \ \ \mathbf{ POSTS } \ \ \ \mathbf{ COMMUNITY } \ \ \ \mathbf{ LOVED } \]

From notes to contests to problems, the vibrant and active Brilliant Community has been publishing numerous gems in the past month.To keep track of anything you might have missed, check out the following:

\(1. \textbf{Popular Notes:}\)

They say Differentiation is an easy topic, but some functions are just too painful to differentiate; check out Derivatives of Peculiar Functions.

Is Time Getting Slower? is a wonderful note posed by Harshit Mittal in which he questions if time itself is getting slower. It is an interesting read that will no doubt leave you with thinking about the time yourself.

There is no doubt that Brilliant is known mainly to us as a website of science and math, but languages are just as fun too! At The International Linguistics Olympiad Training Camp is a wonderfully written note by Soumava Pal about his time at the IOLTC in which he provides us a brief overview of the different types of problems occurring in the competition.

\(2. \textbf{Contests:}\)

Brilliantians have a long history with competitions.Contests and competitions encourage us to give it our all and to keep on struggling until we succeed. Carrying on this tradition, this month Aditya Kumar initiated the Brilliant Summation Contest for all of us to take part in and consequentially better our summations skills!

\(3. \textbf{Popular Problems:}\)

Every month Brilliant users display their creativity and ingenuity by posting problems as a challenge for other users to solve.This month also saw the publications of many magnificent problems such as Logs, Roots and Sevens - a log problem with square roots and sevens1 and Tic Tac Toe a very challenging Discrete Mathematics problem about the game we all know and love.


\[\large \mathbf{ WHO } \ \ \ \mathbf{ TO } \ \ \ \mathbf{ FOLLOW } \]

Finally, here is the long awaited Who-To-Follow list! These members have proved their merit and that they're worthy of being on this list by their regular interaction with the community through posting problems, solutions, notes, etc. These members have surely done their share of the hard work for which they deserve our applause and appreciation. So here is the Who-To-Follow list:

Be sure to hit the \(\color{green}{\boxed{\text{+Follow} \ } }\) button to keep yourself updated with the amazing problems and notes posted by them.


Don't forget, you can always join our Slack chat if you want to talk with our community members. Introduce yourself, share your favorite math and science problems, have memorable discussions, and take part in the wiki collaboration parties too! But most of all, have fun!

Well, the comments section is organized. The show-hide comments in solutions is a nice feature. But, its too compact! Makes me feel dizzy when i use it. Its hard to find the reply button. Especially the edit button and reply button are so close to each other. It has some advantages of better organization but if I had to rate it out of 5 stars i might give 3. The previous one had 4 out of 5. A combination of the traits of the previous one and this one would make it 5 out of 5.
