My queries about Brilliant

It has been approximately 6 months since I joined Brilliant, and I have a few questions:

  • What is the toughest problem, by points, on Brilliant?

  • What is the most liked and reshared problem on Brilliant?

  • Who is the most prolific problem writer on Brilliant, i.e. who has written the most problems?

  • Who has solved the most number of problems?

The question was "who has written the most problems", not "who are good writers", though.

I think problems max out at 400 points.

There seems to be a rough inverse correlation between popularity of problems and their difficulty.

Have any problems maxed out?

Well, one of my recently posted problems have

Tetration

I try to avoid posting problems that would hit the maximum, but sometimes it does happen. If I just wanted to be mean, I know plenty of my own solved problems that should be rated well over 400, that I could post here. But I think that is not the real purpose behind Brilliant.

@Michael Mendrin Cool. What about the most popular problems?

Log in to reply

Yes actually. But most of them (the ones I saw) were \(B^2\) problems. But of course there are those "regular" problems that have a 400 hundred points rating.

Hi Nanayaranaraknas, we currently don't publish leaderboards for writers or problems. We believe it's important for the community for members to continually discover interesting people and problems in the course of using the product, rather than for the staff to publish official popularity or volume rankings.

I understand, however, I am simply asking out of curiosity, since there is no indication of how many problems a person has posted.

Log in to reply

@Nanayaranaraknas Vahdam Thanks for the feedback! I'll discuss making information about creators more visible on profiles with the team.
