The new-years tag's description is:
A new year's puzzle is any puzzle that is posted around the first day of any year that has to do with that specific year or calendars in some way.
This isn't really an objective tag. Its questions include:
- Time-based questions usually based around years
- Eternal 2014, which asks you to convert standard dates to a format where the year is never greater than 2014
- What year is it?, whichs asks you to determine a year for a December calendar
- Advance Happy New Year, 2016!, which asks you to find the next year where New Year's day falls on the same weekday
- Questions that involve printing the year in some format with some sort of restrictions
- Morse the new year, which asks you to output a MIDI file of the Morse Code of "2016"
- The famous 2014 without numbers, which asks you to print 2014 without numbers.
- Write a program that outputs 2012 even if it's modified
- Questions with a year chucked in
- Grow Till It's 2017 - asks to create a program that grows until length 2017, which could be any number
- Recycling for the New Year - asks you to rearrange a program to create one that outputs 2015
- Write a program that sees the New Year in itself - Asks you to create a injection from strings to outputs such that it maps itself to 2020, which could be any number
- Various random stuff
This seems to be more of a meta-tag. When you have a question tagged with string you know the question involves the use and manipulation of strings. But when you have a question tagged with new-years there's many things it could be about, as you can see above, and knowing that a question is related to the new year gives little to no useful information.
So, what should we do with this?
