Recently I suggested having a feed in The Nineteenth Byte for new answers to the Hello, World! challenge. It received some support (as you can tell from the stars), but it was suggested that it be discussed on Meta first.
I see advantages and disadvantages to having this feed, but I'll just state the biggest (in my eyes) of each here:
- People tend to post an answer to the Hello, World! challenge when revealing a new language. Having a feed would allow the more active members of the community who frequent chat to see these new languages quickly.
- It was pointed out that it could get annoying if too many answers were posted at once or in quick succession to the challenge as a large number of oneboxes would be posted into The Nineteenth Byte very quickly, possibly disrupting conversation.
There are definitely more pros and cons to this decision, but there's no need to put them all in this post. What does the community think of this?
