Is this even in your priority list? I have often seen discussions going on which doesn't follow general guidelines and rules of the discussion board. I wish to report them but unfortunately, no such feature exist (unless I have missed it). Also, Brilliant staff should include a few more moderators living in different timezones. I understand that it is not possible for the Brilliant staff to act swiftly because of the timezone problem so I suggest you to include more people (or moderators) in your staff.

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.

I don't think that this contributes to the brilliant discussions. you hypocrits are the ones ruiing my maths enjoyment on this site. I suggest that you should be banned

This post violates none of our rules and guidelines. It is in some way relevant to most people on Brilliant. It is sincerely motivated and well articulated. We ban people only for flagrantly disrespecting the community and repeatedly ignoring the rules.

Explain to me again how this is hypocritical.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I agree with Carlos, this post is so hypocritical, and people can post what they like.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

The problem with posting what you like is that some people can be rude, irrelevant or just plain nasty to other people so I think a report button would be useful. Views should be heard but only if it addresses the problem, not other people.

Pranav,

It is actually relatively high in our priority list. We will begin implementing a system of user-moderators in the coming weeks as well as a system for flagging for removal. It might happen in some shape or form even sooner.

Staff - 7 years, 2 months ago

That's great to hear. I hope to see it soon.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

right

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I suggest banning or suspending any members who violate Brilliant.org rules.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I agree. Some discussions give answers to brilliant problems and are not shut down for hours, when hundreds of people can see them.
