# Summoning

I find it extremely annoying when I have to mention someone in a new place and can’t find their mention ids easily, so here’s a note for that

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.

@Me i was not aware that it is possible to have just a single name.
oh, i saw it's yours Jason, so i propose to just write your name there.

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Ok

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

@Perseus Jackson Did you know this? (No links, only mention)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I do now @Jason Grace

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I have been thinking about changing my name to something else (Jason Grace was my first thought, but i recently saw that he already exists in some old daily challenge), do you have any thoughts on this (If positive, you can recommend names to me, as I have no clue what I’ll change it to)

- 1 month, 1 week ago

but tbh: i like to adress you as Jason Gomez

- 1 month, 1 week ago

You can still address me the same, just wanted to change my name on brilliant (you have given me a good idea)

- 1 month, 1 week ago

hm, i thought about changing mine to Numic Numic, but i already changed this year.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

no...that's a terrible idea...

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I agree

- 1 month, 1 week ago

You should tell people who you have conversations with often so they know where to find you and/or who you are. Maybe choose something related to a well-known book you’ve read or a famous TV show/movie.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Nah that’s not a problem, I will keep my profile pic the same

- 1 month, 1 week ago

That will be easier for people to recognise you.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Sparky? Thunder boy? Zeusy's son?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

If this note gets enough used by many others, I will put the names in ascending order

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Thnx for the note bro, its really helpful :)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Why is the Brilliant Mathematics one a link? And why does it have the options of ‘call number’, ‘FaceTime video’, ‘send message’ and some others? Is that a mentioning id or a phone number?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

its good to have this way to contact the staff bcs i know no other way.
since many members have 'brilliant' in their names, just typing '@' and then brilliant does not show them in the list with proposals.

what did u do to get that 'call number' stuff?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

If you click on a link it directs you to a website, right? When I clicked it, it showed options next to it (like if you double click and icon) which read: FaceTime audio FaceTime send message Skype add to contacts copy phone number

I’m on a tablet device. Is anybody else having this problem?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

hm, i'm on a laptop. i don't get such options. i assume your device assumes that it was a phone number and has options to auto-associate with phone numbers.

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Why aren’t the other mentioning ids recognised as phone numbers then?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

i assume it depends on the 'phone-number-detection' on your device.
you can just test if similar numbers like: 1217291 or 1217390 cause similar options as 1217290 .

- 1 month, 1 week ago

All three of those are links! Well, I guess any number similar to that is now a link. I’ll stop calling the numbers.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

yeah good idea. i was not aware that you imediately call them. i posted them, so you could just check what options you get displayed.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I called the first one, so I assume that the rest of them are phone numbers to nobody.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

ok. i was afraid that my post just scared you more.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I am worried very easily, but not scared that much. On the other hand, can I recommend this video, I found it very inspiring? Kind of.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I called the number. It didn’t work. Thank goodness.

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

lol, i tried the brilliant id in a search engine and found a fountain pen ;-)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

It's an actual phone number somewhere in the world but it's not Brilliant Mathematics number, that's why it turned blue

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Oh my god. I called the number! Some random person has a missed call number. Which is my phone number! This is terrible!

- 1 month, 1 week ago

don't worry. i'm myself are quite paranoid and checked what can be done if stranges have my number. they can call to anoy or check the web to see if it was posted somewhere. so no big reason to worry.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Don’t worry, imagine the number of wrong number calls you get and imagine what you can do with their numbers, nothing at all, no worries at all

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I have one missed call number and it was my mum. Nobody has ever ‘wrong number’ called me

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Well that’s amusing, I get wrong number calls from all over the world

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Lucky...

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Unlucky, I don’t attend most of them

- 1 month, 1 week ago

What do you mean ‘attend a phone number’?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

@Percy Jackson You made a solution for today’s challenge right, why did you take it down?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I didn't like my solution. Something about it seemed too...dull I guess you could say. It was repetitive.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Hmm I would do the same

- 1 month, 1 week ago

@Pi Han Goh I would like to validate my theory on the ascending order of mention ids, is there any chance you know someone whose id I can obtain, who was on this website before you?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I did try finding the end of your bottomless feed to find members older than you, I had just gone through the past 3 years and lost hope on finding the end

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Naturally, most of the staff came before me. I don't purposely remember which account/profile came before me though...

On the other hand, I don't know how you found my ID number or any ID number...

- 1 month, 1 week ago

If I mention you then type your name your mention id pops up

@Pi Han Goh mention[54224:Pi Han Goh]

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Ah got it. Thank you.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I normally do it from the preview of the explanation of a problem posted by the user I require the mention id (or if I require to mention them, then directly from there)

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Found that Calvin Lin’s mention id is 11 confirming my belief

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Do you know who ‘1’ is? On a different note, why is ‘Brilliant Mathematics’ not an early number? Is is unofficial or something?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

No, probably just added later on, not all staff will be the top numbers.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I thought that since it was Brilliant Mathematics, it was the person/people who made this, or are those people using their own names?

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Brilliant.org was founded by Sue Khim, Brilliant Mathematics and Brilliant Physics are just moderators kinda people. Moderators can join pretty late too.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Has to be a staff, but it will only be known by staff, BM can shine some light on this, but it isn’t necessary that’s why I didn’t call him(I took a lot of time to consider calling Pi Han Goh to such a useless question)

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Okay, that makes sense. I usually ask google the weird questions, because google won’t judge my strange questions. Google can’t judge my questions. (As an example I randomly wanted to know what the lifespan of a shark was, I’m not sure why). Too bad google probably can’t answer this.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

It might be Sue Khim, the founder of brilliant but I'm not sure. Searching up a shark's lifetime is not that weird. That is, if you're me and search whether pigeons have feelings...

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Well I understand shark, pigeons??? having feelings???????.. I feel a disturbance

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Hey, if humans can have feelings why can't pigeons? That is species discrimination! #PigeonRights

$\text{lol}$

- 1 month, 1 week ago

is right. People are concerned about racism, but none of them care that they are being discriminatory towards pigeons. Pigeons have feelings too. Sort of.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Oh so you mentioned him lol

- 1 month, 1 week ago

How did you find that???

- 1 month, 1 week ago

i just did @ mention [1:some text]
without blanks
edit: i got no result for 2 and 3. i don't intend to continue that, i was just curious

- 1 month, 1 week ago

I would prefer calling you guys $\pmb{experienced}$

at the pi game

- 1 month ago

oh lol

- 1 month ago

Yessssss i got 24!!!! MY WORLD RECORDDDDD!!

- 1 month ago

- 1 month ago

I deduce from this that the mention ids have been given in ascending order, people who joined earlier have smaller id numbers and Pi Han Goh was one of the first people on this website

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Type in 22/7 in google. You'll get a PI game in the calculator. It checks your memory of pi digits. My highscore is 23 :)

- 1 month ago

My high score is 9 Lmao!!! I'll try again later. Nice game!

- 1 month ago

Aaah increased to 12. I'll try to get you Percy!!!

- 1 month ago

You can't. I did it again, now its 28 :)

- 1 month ago

WTH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- 1 month ago

AAaAAAAAaaAAAAaaHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhh(Echo)

- 1 month ago

It very easy actually. I already have the firs 20 digits memorized, I just attempted it 5-6 times to get 8 more correct.

- 1 month ago

MMMHMMMMMMM. Veeeeerrryy Easy!!!

- 1 month ago

Yea it is 18 now!!

- 1 month ago

Just got to 31...this is hard now...

- 1 month ago

My technique is to memorise four digits in a bar, 3.141 5926 5358 9793 2384 I misclicked for 20

- 1 month ago

Aah nice. Lemme try that.

- 1 month ago

I just say the digits continuously and get used to the tune of when i say it.

- 1 month ago

I am pretty sure I can memorise upto 50 digits in my method (and my memory is really bad)

- 1 month ago

It is actually easy if you try. People with good memory can do upto a 100 no sweat.

- 1 month ago

people with good memory

I don’t come in that category

am I in this category?

- 1 month ago

Moderate memory I guess?

- 1 month ago

You know that thing about the phone number? The last 16 numbers of pi which you wrote is now a phone number.

- 1 month ago

I know, please don’t go calling some random person who happens to have is phone number coinciding with the beginning digits of π

- 1 month ago

Not the first digits of pi, the last ones which you typed.

- 1 month ago

I got 19 in first attempt

- 1 month ago

Nice! Clap Clap Clap Clap!

- 1 month ago

My eye is breaking after this game. I got 18. Not bad . I have never memorized Pi before. Guess I have EYE MEMORY. Lmao

- 1 month ago

Geez I am tired, will try tmr!

- 1 month ago

- 1 month ago

Huh so you eat cookies to learn???

- 1 month ago

Yes. My mom tells me I get a cookie if I learn something, so I learn it for the cookie :)

- 1 month ago

Wow just wow then I can say I eat noodles to learn, lmao

- 1 month ago

Good, noodles are cool too. Cookies are better tho...

- 1 month ago

Both are good, how about that? But based on our results, I think cookies are doing better!

- 1 month ago

- 1 month ago

What about blue cookies 🔵🔘🧿 (this is as close as I can get to a blue cookie)

- 1 month ago

You don't have to specify blue cookies. All good cookies are blue :)

- 1 month ago

Found a glitch in the game, did you too?

- 1 month ago

Using this I don’t need to do the tutorial for each digit being added, but I can’t see the tutorial either if I want to know the next digit

- 1 month ago

How??????

- 1 month ago

After typing for 3.14 when it shows 3.14 1 type 3 then 926 5358 9793 2384 6264 3383 2

- 1 month ago

Exactly at 1 or little before 1

- 1 month ago

It’s now a longer phone number.

- 1 month ago

Well we will have a lot of phone numbers by the time I reach 1000

- 1 month ago

One phone number. a long one.
