What do you think about the new design of Brilliant?

I think that some of the things are strange. Here are the things:

  • To add a comment in a note you have to scroll all the way down, because the add a comment space is at the bottom of the page. Fixed.

  • The font that is used for writing Today, Courses, Practice, Community, Go Premium looks like that there is a space between the letters.

  • For me the globe was better than the three vertical lines( at the top right corner).

  • The number of solvers of a problem starts right when the photo of the member ends(at the right vertical end). Example. Fixed.

    • If there is/are comment(s) for a solution they are all shown. This is bad because if there are more solutions you can't see them.

Hi! We fixed the comment form bug, and the number of solvers bug today.

Thanks for the overall feedback :)

I think the amount that comments to a solution, or comments to those comments (second order comments?) are shifted sometimes makes it difficult to see, which comment they refer to.

On the other hand, when the shift is too big, everything gets aligned on the right hand side and uses only half of the screen. I'm using my smartphone, so actually I shouldn't really complain about the lack of space.

Hi @Henry U – we agree that this isn't quite optimal yet, and will keep tweaking the indenting and collapsing until it looks good on all platforms.

Does anyone know, how solutions to a problem are sorted now, taking all four ways to judge them – helpful, interesting, brilliant, confusing – into account?

Are they sorted just by helpful-votes and if these are the same for two solutions, then interesting-votes and so on?

Or maybe, is there a weighted sum of the four votes that gives each solution a total "score"?

Also, is the time a solution is posted important? I think new solutions should get a chance of being seen and rated.

I always see them sorted by votes. They used to be sorted by upvotes and now I was wondering how the new order is determined.

Maybe this is user-defined?

@Henry U We can always ask the brilliant team.

@Henry U Actually they are sorted by votes but I don't know how.

@Henry U and B D – they are sorted by the sum of the reactions except "confused", which currently doesn't count for up or down.

Yep, we enabled this so that it was more obvious that people can and should discuss the explanations. As the discussions grow, we'll get a little bit more sophisticated with collapsing and showing threads.

Yes, as the modal on problems of the week indicated, we're making Daily Problems instead of problems of the week. All past problems of the week will be accessible in the archives.

Ok. But do brilliant staff having further any ideas to take problems from the community for daily problems.

Ram Mohith - 3 weeks, 4 days ago

@Silas Hundt I have another thing I noticed. The solutions to comunity problems are counted and before the first solution there is a text that says how many solutions there are. Why isn't that added to the daily problems? Or did I just overlook it?

Henry U - 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Log in to reply

Maybe because they added the daily problems eight days ago and it's new Brilliant stuff couldn't think for everything.

The hide and show button for the comments for a solution does not work.

B D - 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Log in to reply

Hi B D – that button should be gone. Can you point me to where you're seeing that button?

Silas Hundt Staff - 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Log in to reply

The button was on the down left corner. But it's gone.
