Wanna host a wiki collaboration party?

Update: You can view the Upcoming Wiki Collaboration here, and directly add in your name!


We've had great successes with the wiki collaboration party, and are eager to expand further. I've received feedback that some of you really wanted to participate, but were uncomfortable discussing the material. Thus, we are going to turn the tables around, and let you choose the wiki page that you would want to contribute to.

To do so,

  1. Pick a wiki page that you love. Look at Needs Writers if you need inspiration. Pair up with someone if you want more help.
  2. Let me know of your intentions. You can either message me, or update this spreadsheet!
  3. Copy/paste the footnote into the top of the wiki page.
  4. Add examples to the page. Also, leave a comment below for the community to help chip in.
  5. Once there are 15 or more examples on the page, message me with the times/dates that you want to host your own wiki collaboration party. We will be there to help guide you through the rest of the process!
  6. Bravely lead a party to write up a great wiki page!
  7. Bask in the admiration of the community.

Note: The examples do not need to be perfect, nor will they all end up on they page. They are there to guide us and help us to understand how the page should be structured, and what makes the most sense.

I am going to host a wiki party this weekend to develop magnetic field lines. We can meet in the physics lounge on Slack on Saturday (updated to Sept 19) at 8 AM (Pacific standard time).

Who is up for it? @Surya Prakash @Sudeep Salgia @Karthik Sharma @Gautam Sharma @Nicole Tay @Agnishom Chattopadhyay @Vishnu Bhagyanath @Rubayet Tusher and anyone else interested.

If you'd like to participate, include your time zone in your response. Josh Silverman Staff · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Josh Silverman @Beakal Tiliksew @Nicole Tay @Karthik Sharma @Pranshu Gaba @Agnishom Chattopadhyay @Surya Prakash @Pranjal Prashant Instead, this will take place on Sept 19. There are already several collaboration parties going on this weekend, so the date has been shifted. Hope you all can still make it! Josh Silverman Staff · 1 year, 8 months ago

Based on discussion with Calvin, Simpson's Paradox is a wiki that can be expanded to a nice little page with a wiki collaboration party. If that's the case, then I can host it this weekend (11-13 September).

(Because apparently my comment got edited by a moderator too much that it no longer reflects my view.) Ivan Koswara · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Ivan Koswara i would like to help with that.... Beakal Tiliksew · 1 year, 8 months ago

A lot of probability questions that seem hard can be solved beautifully by turning them into geometry problems, using the techniques of 1-dimensional, 2-dimensional, and 3-dimensional geometric probability. Let's get a collaboration party set up to work on these wiki pages!

Comment here if you're interested in either leading or participating in this collaboration party! Who's up for it? @Mahindra Jain @Azhaghu Roopesh M @Samarpit Swain and anyone else interested! Eli Ross Staff · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Eli Ross I would love to lead this collaboration party! We can host this party next weekend (Sept 18-20) Pranshu Gaba · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Pranshu Gaba @Pranshu Gaba @Pranjal Prashant @Samarpit Swain Awesome! Let's see if anyone else is interested (ask your friends!) and we'll set a date/time soon. (We will have it some time next weekend, Sept 18-20.) Eli Ross Staff · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Pranshu Gaba Tentatively this will be Friday 09/18 at 7:30pm PST // Saturday 09/19 at 8am IST. How does that work for you all?

A lot of neat problems and applications involve finding finding the last digit of a power or finding the last few digits of a power. It would be great to see someone lead a collaboration party working on these wiki pages!

Comment here if you're interested in either leading or participating in this collaboration party! Who's up for it? @Curtis Clement @Jubayer Nirjhor @shivamani patil @Sudeshna Pontula @Mohan katari @Omkar Kulkarni any anyone else interested! Eli Ross Staff · 1 year, 8 months ago

Hi! I believe the Distinct Objects into Identical Bins can be expanded and would prove useful and beneficial to the community! I would be interested in aiding to host it this weekend (Sept 11-13).

Fellow Brilliant-ees can help contribute to my search in problems involving these by adding it to the examples on it currently. Vishnu Bhagyanath · 1 year, 8 months ago

Differential Equations - Introduction is the wiki that i would like to host on this weekend's wiki collaboration party (Sept 11-13). Gautam Sharma · 1 year, 8 months ago

I would like to participate. I was thinking of expanding the complex numbers page to include using the modulus of complex numbers to create identities and using them to solve geometrical problems. I am also aware that they are used in number theory (i.e. elliptic curves),so if anyone has any knowledge in that area please reply. Curtis Clement · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Calvin Lin I'd definitely love to cover integration tricks at some point in the future. Not sure how distant that future is (as I've said in our conversations), but (to anyone else better at integration than I) I'm interested in helping out with this. Trevor B. · 1 year, 8 months ago
