More Feature Requests...

I have a few problems I've shared that have had either zero solvers or just one or two. It would be nice to know if that's because people have attempted it and gotten it wrong, or if people just aren't even seeing it for one reason or another. Maybe if lots of people tried it and are getting it "wrong," that might indicate to me that there is an error (or poor wording) in my problem that I need to address (when the editing of problems becomes a live feature).

It would also be nice to be able to see, for each problem I've shared, things like

  • how many people solved it
  • how many people reshared it
  • how many people favorited it

I'm also hoping a better system for asking problem authors questions about their problem (clarification requests, etc.) is coming down the pike. Like maybe an author-moderated discussion area just for that purpose (separate from the one discussion the solution)?

Thanks!

@Matt Enlow Really? This problem should show 2 faves and 1 reshare. Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 6 months ago

@Matt Enlow Oops. We hide the buttons so that authors don't reshare or fave their own items, but in the process hid counts from you as well. We will fix within the next day. Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 6 months ago

All of this data is coming—as soon as we can make it show up without sacrificing performance and clarity. And thank you so much for your excellent problems—we've been doing them around the office (staff are hidden from the recent solvers list :)). Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 6 months ago

We pushed a fix today that should make the faves and reshare totals show up for authors... sorry it took so long :( Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 5 months ago

Ok! Authors can now see reshares, favorites, and unique viewers, triers and solvers on their own problems!

Matt, please help me find all the bugs again :) Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 6 months ago

I have wondered the same thing for quite a while. I think the main problem now is that people are unable to see community problems that are not featured by one of the 8 major subjects.

There used to be an "everything" button, but that was removed. It was removed to most likely stabilize performance. However, I discovered that people can view everything by going to brilliant.org/all. Most people do not know that this link exists, and I can not find any button to take you here.

@Christian Lee Hey Christian—have you seen the new Explore page? It is a cleaned up version of /all/. Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 6 months ago
