50-500 rep for answering one of my challenges in one of my languages
TL;DR: I will bounty your answer if you answer one of my challenges using a language I made.
Eligible challenges are any of my code-golf challenges.
Eligible languages include any programming language that was primarily created and developed by me. As of October 24, 2023, that means Acc!!, Appleseed, BitCycle, Exceptionally, FunStack, HBL, Ouroboros, Pip, Regenerate, Sisi, tinylisp, tinylisp 2, or Zephyr. If I make a new language in the future, feel free to ping me or update the list yourself.
If there is already an answer to a challenge in a given language, another answer in the same language is not eligible for a bounty unless it outgolfs the existing answer. If you further golf someone else's answer that already won this bounty, I'll decide case-by-case whether to award another bounty.
How big of a bounty I award depends on how difficult the challenge + language combination is. Here's a general difficulty ranking of the languages:
- Usable: Pip
- Reasonably usable: Appleseed, tinylisp, tinylisp 2
- Inconvenient: Exceptionally, FunStack, HBL, Ouroboros, Regenerate, Sisi, Zephyr
- Tarpit: Acc!!, BitCycle
But the difficulty also depends a lot on the challenge. Things that are trivial in Regenerate may be quite hard in tinylisp. And some challenges aren't easy in any language. Ultimately, the exact bounty amount comes down to my subjective judgment. You also get bonus points for a good explanation!
(A particularly jaw-dropping answer may get more than 500 rep. For example, if you solve Tiny Lisp, tiny interpreter in Acc!!, you're getting at least 1000. =P)
If other factors (for example, whether I've previously bountied the question) prevent me from bountying the answer with the amount I would like, I will work out another arrangement with you. The ideal arrangement would be bountying an answer to a different challenge written in the same language.
Bounties will be paused if my rep drops below 20,000.
