New profiles!

Hey everyone, One of the feature requests that we've seen frequently is that when you come across an amazing user-submitted solution or discussion post, you want to see other solutions or posts by that same user. We've made this and much more possible in our recent update to everyone's profile pages. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Cheers, The team at Brilliant

Furthermore,

Note that you can now attempt to solve any problem solved by a person who's profile you click on, regardless of what level it is in. So if you have ever been curious what people in other levels are solving you can now find out by clicking on their profiles.

Do you think you can develop some sort of search bar. So you can search for people you know? That would be awesome!

Great work! I love the new profiles.

Now that you are tweaking, can you do a little addition to "Past Solutions" section? I have been a member of this site from March 2013. Each week I left some of the problems unsolved. Recently, I have thought of returning back to those problems and try them again but it takes a lot of time to reach the previous problem sets. I mean I have to scroll down a lot and click "Load Previous Week" a numerous times to reach the first problem set I attempted. If possible, can you make this job a little easier for us, for example by adding a drop-down menu which lists all the problem sets?

EDIT: Moreover, I wanted to report that the scroll bar which appears in the Past Solutions section, does not function at all in Google Chrome. I often need to switch to Mozilla Firefox for that.

Thanks!

Yes, the scroll bar doesn't work for me too. I opened a discussion thread about that but got no response.

Just what I've been waiting for, thank you so much! I also like the details about every little thing, such as number of problems submitted. The only thing I'm still waiting for is the section which shows how many solutions have been featured. This came on Brilliant and was removed for some reason.

Also, instead of featured solutions, voting goes on forever, which I think is less of a good idea than the featured solution idea.

This is awesome. It's also great how we can even submit solutions for problems not in our problem set. Here are some minor suggestions:

  • Just like the solution vote count is shown in green, it would be cool if that would be done too for the topic vote count and comment vote count.
  • Maybe you can divide all activitiy of a user in tabs, e.g.: "Solves", "Solutions", "Comments", "Topics", and "Votes" for a better overview.
  • When visiting a problem from somebody else's problem set, it would be rather handy to have a badge or something similar indicate from which level it is.

I think your first point is a good idea, and we will probably do it soonish.

With your second point, are you asking for a way to easily filter your feed, or another person's feed? For example If I went to your profile and only wanted to see your discussions comments, I could click a button and it would only display your discussions comments chronologically.

The last point is a little more complicated because there is so much overlap between levels, but we can definitely find someway to communicate what the difficulty of the problem is in the scheme of Brilliant.

I was talking about just any feed, actually, so I could see a list of just the problems someone has solved recently, or the comment's he's made, etc.

Oh yes, I forgot about the overlap. Maybe the number of point that could be earned could be displayed, although that might be confusing, because you can't actually earn points on a problem not for your problem set. Maybe you could show the problem sets it appears in.

These unlabeled colorless bars are different...

So many changes everywhere all in 24 hours... My brain... aaahhhh... This is not correct discussion but I don't want to start another one- My friends are empty because I don't have Facebook. I just have anonymous blurred imaginary friends. That is kind of sad and unnerving, knowing that blur will always be there.

Justin Wong - 4 years, 1 month ago

Hahaha, Brilliant is always growing and changing... :)

We'll make the "blurry friends" smarter soon—you are probably going to have to tolerate it through the weekend though...

Now there are lots of colorful bars and problems are now called "a problem". I liked seeing the title of the problem.

Justin Wong - 4 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

It says "a problem" in an event stream only when there isn't a name for the problem. This usually happens when the problem is in the Practice section...

@Silas Hundt Oooohhhhhhh... I'm not very smart. Thanks for revealing the obvious.

One thing, though, I don't know if I like the lifetime points disappearing under quick hover-profiles. I used that a lot. Unless Brilliant is trying to get us away from profiling and stereotyping by lifetime points, which makes sense since "lifetime" is relative.

Justin Wong - 4 years, 2 months ago

I see the lifetime points section.

"quick hover-over profiles"... You must have special vision enabling you to see what doesn't exist.

Great work done by brilliant. I really appreciate that. Can you also add a section for Logical Reasoning. That would be great.

Feature Request: We could add a messageboard to everyone's profile that would be much like a talk page

Your status displays in the little box when people hover over your profile with a cursor, so everybody can get a quick sense of what's going on with you.

It is possible that the ability to mention people in conversations you think are relevant to them will come out in the future. Like all things on Brilliant, your profiles will evolve.

I like the possibilities for many prompts instead of "intellectually exciting discoveries" and such. It leaves it open for more information.

Justin Wong - 4 years, 2 months ago

Keep in mind, you can also write your own prompt. You don't have to be limited by the random prompts we supply.
