We currently have 4 King of the Hill challenges that involve modifying opponent's code in order to win.

They are quite unique, and in hopes that people will create more of them, I think it is a good idea to create a tag for it.

Should we create a tag for these types of challenges, and if so, what should the tag be?


There shouldn't be a tag, because of any of the following:

  • There aren't enough challenges
  • It is too specific of a category
  • Other reasons?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I agree, since there aren't enough yet, but I think we should encourage the addition of challenges intended to teach users about self-modifying code. I, for one, don't know much about it. \$\endgroup\$ – mbomb007 May 20 '15 at 19:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think self-modifying code and code that modifies opponent code would be very different categories. I can't think of a meaningful tag name for opponent-modifying code. \$\endgroup\$ – trichoplax May 27 '15 at 22:54
  • \$\begingroup\$ @trichoplax I'd call it "code-wars" since that's kind of what it is, and it sounds like "Core Wars", which is the first occurrence of that sort of challenge that I know of... \$\endgroup\$ – mbomb007 May 31 '15 at 4:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm not sure that "code-wars" makes it sufficiently clear that this doesn't include all KotH challenges. \$\endgroup\$ – trichoplax May 31 '15 at 15:22

We should create a tag .


We should use the tag
