Users are constantly asking for clarification of programming puzzles. In an attempt to help new users create good challenges, I asked this question on Meta PPCG: Things to consider when creating a programming puzzle.

I've gotten some great answers, so it's time to make sure users see it when they ask a question. A link to it might be helpful in these places:

  • Sandbox
  • Help Center
  • "How to Ask" pane on the right side of the screen.

1 Answer 1


I went ahead and added the post to our community FAQ.

Let me know if you think it needs to be more prominently featured.

    \$\begingroup\$ Thanks! Do you think users will see that before asking a question? If not, it might be a good idea to put a link in the sandbox. \$\endgroup\$
