When I searched with -[code-golf] i did not get interesting results. I am looking for the questions (and as popular as CodeGolf questions) that disallow or not require the Code to be golfed to Bytes. Just some programming puzzles offering fun/interesting challenges and solutions in various languages.
There are other, active, alternatives
Our on-topic page says (in part):
All challenge questions on this site should have: [...] An objective primary winning criterion, so that it is possible to indisputably decide which entry should win.
This is a fundamental pillar of the site. As a consequence, code-golf is by far our most popular winning criterion, with 8359 out of the 9979 total questions marked with that tag. For the most part, this is because the tag is easy to apply, easy to score, and easy to use. It provides easy objectivity, and an easy way to meet that requirement.
However, there certainly are other popular tags:
- king-of-the-hill, a tournament-style competition between various bots, with unique scoring per challenge. Especially recently, this tag has become quite popular, with ten challenges in the past two months.
- cops-and-robbers, a competitive-programming challenge, where one person tries to obfuscate code in some specified manner, and others try to crack the obfuscation.
- code-challenge, pretty much a catch-all for challenges that have uniquely defined scoring criteria.
- fastest-code, exactly what it says on the tin.
