Voting on notes

Since the Brilliant redesign, voting on notes is no longer possible. My guess is that the voting has been removed because the notes only appear in the feed and not in a list where they can be sorted on the amount of votes each note got.

I think voting on notes should come back. Here's why:

  • Voting on notes is a great (and easy) way to show your appreciation.

  • If users can vote on feature requests, the staff can easily see how many users like the idea, helping them to decide if they should implement it or not.

  • It would allow the staff to reintroduce a notes-only page, where we can browse notes by tags, votes and how recently they've been posted.

Sometimes I come to to solve problems, sometimes I come to see what the community is up to and to interact with them. Since the redesign, it's become a lot harder to do the latter.

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.

Suyeon, I'm glad you listen to your users and take the time to reply. I'll keep sharing notes if there's more that I think can be improved.
