RIP Community

RIP the Community page of Brilliant..thanks for everything. It's nice how they're giving everyone Premium access until the end of 2021 to make up for it. Feel free to chat here to share your thoughts on this everyone. Despite this, it's a shame it's going away as the community is what made Brilliant how it is with everyone sharing their own problems and solutions to everything, with this gone, it'll remove the Community aspect of Brilliant.

RIP Community: 2004 - 2021: 17 Years of the community working together on problems. (F to pay respect) PS. Oh yeah also moving to AoPS. my user will be benj1021. UPDATE: The Notes / Discussion button is gone.

UPDATE 2: You can no longer comment. Bruh.

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.

My email says Premium until the end of 2022? And yes it is really sad without the Community page, but I personally liked the courses a lot and now with premium I can access everything. For now we just have the hope that they will likely relaunch some community elements in some way.

Interesting! Maybe it depends on the amount of community posts?

Brilliant will always be my home, where I grew up learning physics, maths, and programming. #Respect for Mark Hennings, Steven Chase, Karan Chatrath, Pi Han Goh, Chew-Seong Cheong, Jeff Giff, and many others

@Krishna Karthik Hello Bro but why they are giving premium for free?

@Talulah Riley To compensate disgruntled members, I expect.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik If I will take someone's heart for his body and give him 1 Million dollar.
Will it be okay ???????

@Talulah Riley Well, that's how business works my friend. I'm glad you understand. No one cares about heart in business. Just like Rovio removed the original Angry Birds games, Brilliant is doing away with the one thing that was going good for them.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik But I always love the.problem posted by Steven Chase and Karan.Chatrath and thier solutions.
I used to visit , Brilliant website 4-5 times daily.
But now I will visit hardly once In a month.
So Brilliant will lose his many users .
I don't think Brilliant will get benefit.
In my opinion Brilliant should take charges for community.
Like for example. 10 US dollar per month .
We people can easily pay that ,and enjoy community section. It is also a good idea. Share your views about it.

@Talulah Riley I agree. Doing away with the community is a very bad decision; it's pretty much the only reason people use Brilliant.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik Bro I can easily give 20 US dollar per month to Brilliant for subscription for a community.
If there are 500 users who are enjoying community .
So Brilliant can make 10K US dollar per month easily

@Talulah Riley Bro it's not so much the money that's the problem. The problem is that not enough people are devoted to the courses.

Brilliant did this so their customers could focus on their courses rather than using community features and treating it as a maths/science forum rather than an educational website.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik Your Business will not decide the choice of customers.
The choice of customers will decide your business.
I don't know why brilliant want its users to learn maths and science.
If Brilliant makes the website as a best problems website in the world .
Within 3-4 years around 50,000 uses will definitely come to upload problems and to enjoy community.
If they all pay 20US dollar per month ,then Brilliant can earn 1 M dollar per month easily. which is more than premium content.
Isn't it a good idea.

@Talulah Riley It's a good idea, but people aren't willing to pay 240 dollars a year for a Brilliant community😂

If you make it more like 1 dollar per person, per month, it'll be something like an additional 600K a year.

It'll be like "unlocking" the community, 1 dollar a month. And I think in all honesty, with people like Karan Chatrath and Steven helping others, the community is already better than Brilliant's courses, despite the fact that their courses are good.

Sadly, business decisions won't fit right with all stakeholders. Businesses like to shoot themselves in the foot.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik I can easily pay 240 dollar for a year but will not pay a single penny for thier courses.

@Talulah Riley Their courses aren't that bad, but then again I learnt much, much more from Steven Chase's solutions alone.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthiki I will create my own website after jee exams But how I will inform you that I have created?
It will only dedicated for community problems and discussions.

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik Bro Try to understand if a guy pays 20$ in one month.and.for next moth suppose he doesn't need community.
But a.second guys needs that community so second guy will pay the money.
It will be balanced .

@Krishna Karthik @Krishna Karthik Brilliant can earn more from subscribing community than thier premium content.

@Talulah Riley @Talulah Riley

We should probably try to convince Brilliant to retain their community.

And I agree with you. Brilliant was once the great place where I learnt all my maths and science.

@Benjamin McCarthy I think it is from 2014.
By the way ,why they are giving premium for free?

Talulah Riley - 1 week, 4 days ago

It's cause they're discontinuing the community features: Community Problems, Discussions, etc.

If Brilliant emailed you saying that they're compensating you due to the community section being gone soon, you need to find an email from them to activate the Premium. If not, F.
