If you haven't noticed from my posts, I seem to have a pretty hard-set tendency towards posting problems which require some amount of programming to solve, but aren't actually programming problems in and of themselves, also requiring knowledge from other mathematical disciplines.
I'm still learning the Brilliant culture and goal, and from what I can see, this sort of flies in the face of pencil-and-paper test practice... but I'm certainly not receiving much negative feedback either, and the #ComputerScience top-level tag provides plenty of precedent.
What are people's thoughts on these types of problems? Are cross-discipline challenges too niche, or too difficult in general? Should I tone these down a bit to make them more accessible to non-programmers, and if that makes them easily brute-forced by a programmer with little to no mathematical reasoning, so be it? I'm curious as to what people think of these flavors of problems, and what they mean for Brilliant.
P.S. If you don't know what 'Project Euler' like problems are, go check them out!
