Things That Do Not Work

I've been noticing that some of the features on Brilliant do not work. For example:

1) The "Someone Followed You On Brilliant" E-mail:

It's nice to have notifications about who follows you. But some of features here do not work. For example, in that email, you are given a choice to follow the person who followed you. But the blue 'follow' button there does not work! And the email tells you that whoever your new follower is, they don't have any followers. That is an incorrect statement. A picture should help:

2)The "Someone Favorited Your Note" E-mail:

Again, a good feature. And you'd normally want to know which note of yours got favorited. And for that there is a button which, unfortunately, does not work.

3)The "Someone reshared your note" E-mail:

Same issue here. The "see which note" button doesn't work.

4)The "Favorites Tab" on People's profiles:

Alt text Alt text

The picture explains it. D.N.W. stands for does not work.

5)The Activities List:

As I said in a previous note, problems solved do not appear in our activities list. I don't know why problem solving isn't considered activity.

I know these are minor issues and I can live with them. And the staff has more important things to work on, like marking the solved problems on your feed,[which is far more important than these issues] but it would be great if you looked into these.

Thanks in advance!

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.

Thank you very much for the detailed bug reports. It makes fixing things much easier when reports are specific.

  1. The incorrect "No followers" item should be fixed. The button works for me, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I made some changes, let me know if they work.
  2. The button works for me, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I made some changes, let me know if they work.
  3. Ditto.
  4. I fixed the link, and the change should be live within a few minutes.
  5. Yes. The "Activity" tab will be getting fixed soon.

And thank you for the quick response!

  1. "No followers" is fixed. The button still does not work for the previous e-mails. But there is a change now. The new e-mails have a "see profile" button instead of a "follow" button. And that button works.
  2. The button still doesn't work for the mails that are already in my inbox. It could work for the future e-mails. That means I'll have to share a good enough note so that people favorite it :)
  3. Ditto... so that people re-share it :)
  4. It works!
  5. Good to know! I'll be looking forward to that.
