What About Old Problems?

I've been on Brilliant for over a year now. So, I've had the privilege to solve a lot of problems on this site. Today I felt like going through all the problems I've solved or looked at on Brilliant. So, I clicked on 'started problems' and scrolled down and down and down and down and down and down... and down and down and down [Man, there were a lot of problems!] until I reached the bottom of the page. I solved a couple of problems I couldn't solve the first time I'd seen them.

Zi Song Polynomial was one of the problems I solved today. I noticed that you can't re-share or like problems that are really old [I knew that before, I just re-noticed it today]. The worst part is you can't access the solutions discussions for those problems.

Are there any plans to make the older problems re-shareable?

There is an obvious solution for this. Write a note, post the links for the problems and share them. But that is a lousy solution because you still wouldn't be able to join the solution discussions.

So what are you going to do about this? Will the old problems never be released to the new users?

We are working on activating functionality for all the 'old problems'. They will (eventually) be likeable, sharable, searchable, add to set, etc. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 6 months ago
