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,
Pick a wiki page that you love. Look at Needs Writers if you need inspiration. Pair up with someone if you want more help.
Let me know of your intentions. You can either message me, or update this spreadsheet!
Copy/paste the footnote into the top of the wiki page.
Add examples to the page. Also, leave a comment below for the community to help chip in.
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!
Bravely lead a party to write up a great wiki page!
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.
[[start-meta]] This page has been proposed for [an upcoming wiki collaboration](https://brilliant.org/discussions/thread/wanna-host-a-wiki-collaboration-party/).
It is currently under construction, and you can help by adding examples of what you think should be on this page [[end-meta]]

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.

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).
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.)
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.
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!
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.
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.
Someone please tell me why the level 3 I have got[no higher level questions :,(] in chemistry is noy being shown up on my profile ? Is chemistry not included in the basic levelled topics ?

@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!

I am up for it... i have a 7 hour lead from the US time zone so any time is fine by me...

Heh. If everyone can post their time zones, I can make a table of when we all need to be awake.

I can try but it's pretty late since it would be 11pm here and my exams are coming up.

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!

@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.)

I think I'll stick with writing wiki's by myself rather than hosting a collaboration :P
