We are glad you guy's like the new points exchange!

For the future, feel free to suggest books for the points exchange. You can do this by emailing me at discussions@brilliant.org, or creating a discussion to see if others are also interested in that book or genre. When you create a discussion for this, give your post the tags "points exchange" and "feature requests" and we will look into them. Our constraints on what we could potentially offer are: the book must be available in e-book, and it must not be outrageously expensive.

If you do not have a specific book in mind, but do know what kind of things you would like to read, tell us about what you would like to read and we will look around and see if there is a book that we could offer on that topic.

I'd ordered for the level 3 lanyard last week. Can anyone tell me how much time i.e. how many weeks or months (approx.) would it take before the lanyard arrives to me... ---( I am from India )

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I order a level 3 lanyard a week and a half before this.Will i receive it or not as now lanyard are only for level 4 and up.Any idea anyone?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Sridhar, You will still receive your level three lanyard. All who claimed a lanyard below level 4 before the change in the points exchange will receive a lanyard. Please allow plenty of time for it to arrive, experience has shown us that it can take an extremely long time to reach India.

it can take an extremely long time to reach India.

Lol! That seems pretty obvious to me considering the fact that a "Happy New Year 2012" card that my relative living in the USA sent, reached me in Jan 2013 :P (It actually happened so! )

Wait for a Brilliant staff to reply to this comment..or try creating a discussion to bring it into their notice. Or try the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page.

i don't understand what the lanyard exactly is .. could anyone tell me

- 5 years, 1 month ago

A lanyard is a rope or cord worn around the neck with a key ring at one end to hold things that you do not want to lose. Think of it as a useful necklace. That said you do not have to wear them around your neck, you can put them in your pocket and treat it as long keychain. People commonly attach their keys, flash drives, id cards, whistles, hand lens, pens etc...
