# What's the highest number of upvotes you have ever seen?

This is the highest I've ever seen: A solution by me.

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.

Woah... I happen to know that the highest amount of reshares on Brilliant is 163. (A post by me "1,000 Reshares?"). Unfortunately, we didn't make it to 1,000 :D.

Ha, yep. You still got the most though. I remember some guy was all like, " How dare you try to push everyone else's posts downwards." You were just like, " ya........:( ok."

Which question is it?

I don't really think my solution deserved this many upvotes.

I remember one or two notes from the original Brilliant.org that have over 100 upvotes. Do notes count?

See this: Problem of Classical Geometry. The statistics of the problem:

• More than 8500 attempts.

• More than 4800 solvers.

• More than 1400 views.

• 90 shares.

• 42 likes.

• 50 solutions.
