When I say this, I have the feeling that most of Brilliant users agree. I don't like having everything hooked up to my email. It's very inconvenient, and furthermore, very spamming. I would really like to have a notifications tab on the black bar at the top of the page. The notifications could tell you about followers, comments, and even achievements (which is another thing I'm hoping for)! The achievements would be an incentive for users to try to accomplish goals, like solve 500 problems, post 20 solutions, etc.. Give feedback!

Great idea! I too was wondering how the current points system would be put to use. I loved the concept of Master Sessions and also the eBook/T-Shirt/Lanyard Exchange, since it gave me a sense of accomplishment and a goal to achieve on Brilliant, as you said. I hope to see some changes soon...
