# How to Hard Mention Users on Brilliant

All you have to do is:

Place the ‘@‘ symbol before the person you are mentioning, then repeat the name with correct capitalisation in the right places. They will get a notification (if on desktop) and will come to wherever you mentioned them (if they want to).

Example: @Blank McBlank Blank McBlank

When you post the comment, it should look more or less like this:

@Blank McBlank Blank McBlank

I have had a lot of difficulties, so I simplified it for anybody who wants to know how to mention a user. If you wanted to know, replace the ‘Blank McBlank’ with the person who you’re mentioning.

If you read the comments, that is Jason Gomez teaching me how to mention others. If parts of the conversation are missing, it’s probably in the other note which we were switching the mentioning from (solution to Jason’s note to this note) Then Percy Jackson got involved. If you want to get confused, by all means read it. If you don’t, don’t.

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.

Did it work?

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I see, you have tried mentioning me here but it didn’t work

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

It will only work if it turns blue

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

@Jason Gomez mention[4821179:Jason Gomez]

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Yup I have been mentioned, but it’s because I participated in this convo

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Now try putting @ mention[4821179:Jason Gomez] somewhere else without the space between @ and the mention

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Where?

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Maybe in some problem you have done and can write a solution for

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Finally...

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Ah yes

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

@Jason Gomez Jason Gomez, Do the exact same thing in my post and you will that the first will turn blue (if u click the first name which from the suggestions) and the second will turn into my mention id

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Okay, I think I have mentioning people down. Although it took me like twenty tries.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I’m deleting this note now. It looks plain abnormal.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

It’s not required

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Other people might see and benefit

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I’ll make it more clear then.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Okay, make it something like An example of how to Hard mention someone

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

So I’ve changed the title from ‘Temporary Note’ and my plead for help to ‘How to Mention Users on Brilliant’ - a simple guide to mentioning.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

@Jason Gomez mention[4821179:Jason Gomez] did I mention you yet?

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Yeah you have mentioned me here

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

If it turns blue you are mentioning someone or it’s a link(normally)

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

🎵Celebrate good times, Come on!🎵 I did it Hallelujah (I don’t even know what that means)

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

$🥳🥳🥳🥳$

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Lol celebrate all you want here, no one other than me is gonna get those 78 notifs so no prob

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Dude, now I see where the 78 came from and why you blamed Sarah for them lmao

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Lol

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I should probably delete that so she doesn't see, but I really wanna see her reaction so I'll not delete lol

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Haha, very funny. If you must know, it wasn’t just me who gave Jason Gomez so many notifications. Although I’d like to think that I was responsible for all of those. Thanks to me, Jason might have made a new record: Most comments read in two minutes. Also Percy Jackson, now you will get notifications too, one for how many times I comment/reply on this note and for other comments. Who’s got 78 notifications now?

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Oof, I think you don’t know how unsubscribe works, Percy knows that well sadly

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

U can give him over hundred notifs over here now, because he hasn’t unsubscribed yet, I may not be able of help to you because I have to prepare for an exam tomorrow

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

@Sarah Alam, @Jason Gomez C'mon guys, I ain't that stupid, I unsubscribed already before leaving. Only the mentions made it to my notifications, so like 10-11 notifs :)

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Hey Percy I ain’t that stupid, but I know that we haven’t mentioned you 10-11 times lol, u didn’t unsubscribe ik( just came to check how much Sarah had progressed, note to Sarah, this guy you see here has spammed a lot previously [even to Brilliant Mathematics] so you don’t need to feel bad spamming him, and no worries if you spam me, don’t spam today as he already knows, surprises are always better)

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I did, in fact, unsubscribe from this note. I got notifications from the 'Book Choices' dc since I have made a solution and commented there. There were 2 messages from Nico also. btw I just noticed, if Frank and Hazel were here, then we'd be like a Praetors club lol

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

It’s such a tragedy you become a praetor(Note to Sarah, he has improved his standards and started rickrolling too)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

lol (that is literally all I can think of saying to you rn)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

It worked, didn’t it?

- 2 months, 1 week ago

And btw the tragedy of you being praetor, is because, you are greek

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You were only a praetor for, like a week. Then you were kind of replaced by Jason.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

- 2 months, 1 week ago

it's obvious by her profile pic dude, and also, it is not tragic being a greek praetor. It is tragic to be replaced by a greek so soon by your legion. It is tragic to know your fellow praetor replaced you with the greek too. It is tragic to know that the greek never forgot about annabeth, but you forgot reyna so easily. I guess that's one point for me Jase :)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

And I add one more nickname to me never ending list of nicknames , and also I haven’t seen the movies so I have no clue how they look, only read the books

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Here's a pro tip : Don't watch the movies, actually, try to get Hera to remove your memory of PJO movies ever existing. The movies suck more than a black hole doesn't even cover a tenth of it...yep, they're that bad...

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Never seen one :), I just realised I did read the fourth book of Trials Of Apollo and completely forgot it

- 2 months, 1 week ago

lol

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Reyna isn’t in the movies. And I refuse to acknowledge those horrible movies. Watched one, didn’t want to ruin my life by watching the other. Take my advice. DON’T WATCH THEM.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

They also put descriptions of the characters in the books (Annabeth obviously has blond hair, not that the movies bothered to get that right) so you could piece together what they look like. Personally, I don’t really like the official illustrations of Percy Jackson characters, I like viria’s from tumblr more.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Oh, I love Viria's PJO art!!! The official art just straight out sucks, but viria's art is amazing. It is so good that they made it official on the Percy Jackson Fandom website lol

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Now they have common sense. Also did you know that in a few years, there will be a Percy Jackson live action series on Disney Plus?

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Yeah, I know, I saw Rick's website post. There is a Kane Chronicles Netflix series/movie coming out too Hope they're better thatn the movies...

- 2 months, 1 week ago

The movies are so bad, I could direct a better version. If the series turns out horrible like the movies, do you want to audition for Percy Jackson?

- 2 months, 1 week ago

That was a joke, I couldn’t direct a film.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

lolI think an animation series for the PJO tv series would be better, honestly.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

And if Viria drew them. That would make it better.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Yep :)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I wasn't replaced, I gave up my position for him. That's humility, not replacement :)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Sorry, but I’ve read a lot of other books and right now I’ve started to mix up different universes. I should have known. Apologies if you were offended.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Ok, which books have you read?

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I can’t think of ONE HUNDRED things to say. I can think of twenty, though.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

No worries try your best, he will anyway only come tomorrow, so you have quite a lot of time

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

So right now, I’m in lockdown and meant to be studying, not on Brilliant.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Hmm.. ok, same here

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I did manage to finish two online lessons. Only two. I should have done like, five. I’m the type of person who never studies but excels in tests and assessments. Too bad I can’t be bothered to do homework. Curse whoever invented it. ‘If home is for working, then school should be for sleeping’ ~ I can’t remember who quoted this

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Don’t worry most of the people you meet here will mostly be like that(me included, with history,Hindi excluded, I almost never “studied” for school)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You live in India, right? I’m part Indian and my parents speak Hindi.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Yeah

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You are a Bengali, so some part of you must be from India

- 2 months, 1 week ago

This is in your about, don’t think I hacked and found out or something like that

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I know, I put it there, I’m not worried. Actually, I’m always worried, but not about this.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. ~ Murphy’s Law

- 2 months, 1 week ago

It just went wrong

- 2 months, 1 week ago

What went wrong?

- 2 months, 1 week ago

What you did

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Right, sorry. I spoiled the ‘surprise’ for everyone.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Ok,what are you worried about(i worry sometimes about knowing I will die the moment before I do)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I’m worried that I’m going to fail life based on one little mistake. I could fall down the stairs and break my leg and fall on someone else and kill them and go to prison for the rest of my life for manslaughter (or womanslaughter) I’ll then die surrounded by prisoners in jail.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Uhmm, first there is something like juvenile jail, second you don’t go into life imprisonment for killing someone by mistake (it’s only a name, in India life imprisonment last for 13 years, and so there are double life imprisonments also given), third if you break your leg, it will heal back, little weaker but within two years, there will be no difference at all

- 2 months, 1 week ago

And if I fall onto TWO people?! And I also die myself and some homicidal maniac hides my body and I don’t get a funeral and my last words were ‘The clock is one hour fast’? My after-life would be ruined.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Just learn practical probability, the probability you die is zero, calculate yourself and see

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I assume you are not 23 years old and still in “school”

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I am still in school and I have yet to talk to brilliant about changing my age.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You don’t need to change your age, it’s not necessary

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You have nothing to worry about in otherwords, if it comes you will have to face it,( I can’t face mine, because after that …)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I am leaving for now, hope to see that three digit number when I come back( btw if u mention him he will get notified an extra time )

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson mention[10420647:Percy Jackson] here’s his mention id do as you please

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Why thank you Jason, @Percy Jackson mention[10420647:Percy Jackson] will be notified twice as much. Sadly, you probably will too.

- 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Just try out the stuff here

- 2 months ago

Only I can see them, and Percy anyways unsubscribed so it’s a better place to practice what you are trying

- 2 months ago

Are you talking about me or someone else?

- 2 months ago

Your note means ofc to you

- 2 months ago

Oh, right. I didn’t even notice this was my note. $\Huge{ \text{🔵🔵🔵 = 🔺🔺 }}$

Did it work?

- 2 months ago

Yes it worked!
