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.

I think the new Home Page needs to be redone. It never changes, and it seems to change the focus of Brilliant from "challenging problems" to self-guided math education. And where's all the great Wiki pages now? I think if the Home Page is not going to be Community (which now I have to keep clicking every time), it should take us to some portal on Wiki pages, with the best or latest featured. You know, like what happens when we open up a news website. Keeps things lively. Otherwise, it feels like I'm back in school, and I don't want that.

I think it's a mistake, because when people not familiar with Brilliant.Org first click on to see what it's about, they're not going to see anything exciting . First impressions are the most important.

We agree that it's not ideal that the homepage is static. More homepage features are on the way, including featured new problems and wikis.

yeah its right that brilliant has turned from a" challenging question producing website" to a "self a guided math education"

- 6 years, 9 months ago

A better suggest. On opening www.brilliant.org, the community tab should be opened as default. :)

a better option !!

It is $\color{#D61F06}{Superb!!}$

It's good. But unfamiliar with it . So it will take some time to adapt according to it. Change is always done for the better. Also I believe that change is the only constant.

That would work great for a cool status..

@Dinesh Chavan is right...Community must be made the default home page @Calvin Lin ..Just a suggestion...since we're very used to it ...

- 6 years, 9 months ago

Yes it should be..

- 6 years, 9 months ago

Deepanshu and Krishna, your feedback on what should go on the new homepage is welcome on the new discussion happening here.

Staff - 6 years, 9 months ago

Also it needs to push harder to click something. It is very uncomfortable. :(

- 6 years, 9 months ago

yes i m too finding it difficult to use .if i want to open community problems then we used to click on home tab but now its community tab .

- 6 years, 9 months ago

I cant find the community problems on android

Staff - 6 years, 9 months ago

Yes i found it Thank you

When i open someone's profile on brilliant android app it does not opens all problems posted by him...

- 6 years, 9 months ago

Yes, the load more button never works and similarly with the sets, when I am seeimg others set I can only see few(2-4)

I have a request to make. Could you please make the Android app more fluid and functional? I mean selecting the options is not as smooth is other android apps. Plus the loading bar could be redesigned to match the latest material design ui by Google? I mean the entire app could use a lot of material design! I would spend all my nights on the brilliant.org app if this could be included! I hope this is a reasonable request which could benefit the entire wonderful community on this website!

Same here on android

This one is good but the previous one was better. Here the community page should be stored as default under home button.

I happened to visit the site today after about 8 days, and was completely perplexed. I think this model is not that user friendly. According to me, unfamiliar users may find it odd to see problems and interesting notes under the community tab. As pointed out by others, .Community may be made the default home page since it, at the beginning itself, introduces the user to lots of questions.

It's just my opinion. I have not considered the long term effects or anything of that sort.

- 6 years, 9 months ago

it is not good. the old look was better.
