# New layout

I am completely lost, anyone mind making the new layout understandable? I see text posts, and random questions everywhere, and I can not make sense of it.

Lost here as well.

Can't see the problems of the week, now it's just a Facebook like mess.

Completely turned off if this is really "new problems every day".

It was awesome having weekly challenges and being able to solve any of the problems, on demand, not having to wait for tomorrow to be fed another problem.

I guess usage data will tell if Brilliant is right with this change or not. Hopefully they'll revert if they're wrong.

Wonder if they rolled this new user interface to a subset of users first?

I agree completely, I liked looking over all the new questions Sunday night, and then working on them individually throughout the week. It was all orderly, easy to follow, and it's a a big jumble of information now.

To be completely honest, I really don't like it, and I really don't like how often Brilliant changes the layout of the site. In my opinion, it was as it's best (since I've been on) before this last update.

Hey Noah,

• There are new problems every day instead of every week.
• New problems are entered into the top of your homepage.
• You can see only the best problems in a topic by clicking on the topics in the left hand sidebar.

Does that help?

It does clear things up, I'm just not on-board %100 with the new layout, and that makes a little bit harder to understand it. Thank you for the reply though!

to help you guys, in my case my definition of "best problems" are problems whose rating are close to MY problem solving skills. As it is a General Best problem will more likely be either too hard or too easy for me. that was the beauty of the weekly challenges, you were on a path to advancement, now it feels like there are no goals to achieve on the site.

Hi Angel – The topic feeds only show you problems within a range of a few hundred of your current rating. In fact, the range of difficulty you see now should be the same as the weekly problem sets. We're working on doing a better job showing you only problems that are very close to your rating, but it's a work in progress. Similarly, creating the right pacing of problems for each user is a work in progress. There are a lot of updates coming, and hopefully they will make your experience better. Thanks as always for your feedback.
