The top section of my brilliant page says that I have 71,130 points. But according to the leader-board, I have 72,525 points. Could somebody from the staff please tell me why this is happening?

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.

Hey everyone, thanks for pointing this out. We are not sure whether this is a bug or just an issue of one number updating more slowly than the other, but we will look into it.

It is a cacheing issue, give it time to update.

I see that you (now) have 72655 points.
