Hi Anubhav,

I went through your list of problems, and deleted those which were directly copied from Brilliant problems. This is an example of one of them.

Please use this site with integrity and respect for other members.

What happens if we unknowingly post problems that others have posted? I mean, we cannot keep track of all problems on brilliant and it is not possible to check for duplicates before posting any problem.

I understand if several 'popular' problems do continually get reposted by different members of the community. For example, I've often seen the 7 jewel thieves / pirates problem be posted in one form or another. This arises partly because the problem has a certain 'folklore' nature to it.

It is fine to take a problem and adapt it to present a different scenario / aspect of it. It would be good to give credit to the source of your inspiration, especially if it is an easier version to work on.

When it comes to repeatedly reposting complete duplicates of other problems, then it would be in the interest of the Brilliant community to have these duplicates be removed. For example, the deleted question which sparked this discussion is identical to Those Long Summer Days.

Bu t what was the problem if i posted it?

I guess the purpose would be served if you share it.By posting it as your problem you gain followers and likes for an idea that was copied and not yours.The case is different if you by chance make a question out of an idea that already exists.No hard feelings but this is what i think.
