Post New Wiki Now Available

Do you have a deep desire to teach people about Mobius Strips? Are you dismayed that we don't have a reference explaining Dark Matter? Mourn no more! It is now possible for Brilliant members to add new wiki pages on any topic.

Just click the Post something at the top of the community page, choose "Add Wiki", and then write an explanation for the community to read. It is, however, a good idea to look around (and search) before you post a wiki in order to avoid creating duplicate pages.

As great pages are added, they will be placed into our existing topic lists.

Be sure to check out the Wiki Guidelines for information on formatting wiki pages as well as best practices.

Here are a few of examples of great wiki pages that already exist:

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.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

@Victor Loh For the fact that I don't care for the first thing that pops up on Brilliant's homepage (Brilliant.org) - I come here to see people's problems, not my activity history. Also, all the different colors for the topics don't appeal to my eyes - I can read without them just fine. And, I don't like this big black bar stalking my interface as a surf along the website. Plus my name above that is very awkwardly placed. And I preferred when people's streak/points could be viewed from the homepage. That "Leaderboard" feature was extra and unnecessary - on the internet, if something takes me a click more to view something, I ain't doing it. Too lazy (and statistics can support this for majority populations). And the people's problems are also very awkwardly displaced - almost squeezed in along with all the other junk on the interface that's introduced.

I hope this will change to look better, soon (I say soon because nothing on this site stays the same for more than a week).

Cheers,
