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?

John Haussman has solved the mostnumber of problems.Probably. · 2 years, 10 months ago

Yeah! · 2 years, 10 months ago

@Daniel Liu & @Finn Hulse are good writers · 2 years, 10 months ago

The question was "who has written the most problems", not "who are good writers", though. · 2 years, 10 months ago

What ever,even if I give much more knowledge related to this case,It doesn't cause any harm ...But still -Thanks! · 2 years, 10 months ago

I think problems max out at 400 points.

There seems to be a rough inverse correlation between popularity of problems and their difficulty. · 2 years, 10 months ago

Have any problems maxed out? · 2 years, 10 months ago

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. · 2 years, 10 months ago

Cool. What about the most popular problems? · 2 years, 10 months ago

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. · 2 years, 10 months ago

Could you post some links? I know some of Daniel Ploch's problems are 400 · 2 years, 10 months ago

Not sure if you already solved but here's This Problem. · 2 years, 10 months ago

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. Staff · 2 years, 10 months ago

I understand, however, I am simply asking out of curiosity, since there is no indication of how many problems a person has posted. · 2 years, 10 months ago

Thanks for the feedback! I'll discuss making information about creators more visible on profiles with the team. Staff · 2 years, 10 months ago

Prolific problem writers- Staff, Daniel (used to be), Me(maybe..:P I've written over 100 problems) · 2 years, 10 months ago

Why do I get two downvotes for telling the truth? Darn the ** downvoters! · 2 years, 10 months ago
