- Sandbox for Proposed Challenges 2450 answers
I am mulling over a challenge to draw the Eiffel Tower in 3D with ASCII art, similar to this: https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/a/22763/10766.
However, it has a problem. If I do it code-golf, it will be a boring kolmogorov-complexity problem and will produce some pretty ugly Eiffels. If I do it popularity contest, it will end up being an art contest and be of no programming value, even though some beautiful Eiffels will likely be produced.
So, I thought we could perhaps have the best of both worlds - 25% of the score is the length of the program and 75% is the number of upvotes. I chose this ratio because the number of characters is typically much more than the number of votes. What do you think about this, is the problem unsolvable, is what I thought of good, or do you have a better solution?
Please let me know what you think in the answers.
