This has now happened three times in recent history:
All questions have technically correct and unambiguous win conditions. However I strongly believe that their way of scoring is anti-fun.
In all of them it's because the question involves two challenges:
- Solving the problem.
- Golfing your solution.
Actually solving the problem is hard in of itself, and fun. Because solving the problem is hard, the code to solve the problem is going to be big. Then having to golf that big code is not fun. The amount of work and juggling of parts required to optimally golf a piece of code exponentially increases.
However, the scoring requirements only rewards the non-fun part, and you effort in actually solving the problem goes totally unrewarded.
For me this means that for these questions I lose interest after actually solving the problem, so I just post my huge ungolfed solution, or not post my solution at all if there's a shorter one. I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling this way.
