I posted Draw the Olympic Games logo, which is clearly a question requiring users to post a solution that outputs .

chubakueno posted Olympic Games Logo - Free Style Edition, which is a and has no restrictions on output format. This post has been closed as a duplicate of the above contest.

I cite Are two questions duplicates if they have different scoring rules? and Duplicate questions on Meta as precedent that these challenges can be considered different; while the posts from my question would be valid answers to the closed question, (currently) the opposite is not true. It's a different challenge with a different goal and much broader restrictions.

I don't have the reputation to cast a reopen vote and get the ball rolling on this, but I believe that the new challenge should be reopened.
