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?

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.

We are working on activating functionality for all the 'old problems'. They will (eventually) be likeable, sharable, searchable, add to set, etc.
