As described in my last meta post, the purpose of this post is to nominate and vote on posts that deserve more visibility.
The criterion for voting and nomination include 4 aspects: Quality, difficulty, acceptability, and visibility.
Quality: The post should be well written, and on-topic under our current guidelines. Furthermore, the challenge should avoid practices that we are trying to move away from (such as arbitrary language restrictions, difficult I/O models, or pop-cons that don't need to be pop-cons)
Difficulty: Avoid the extremes: Extremely difficult challenges may cause users to give up, and too many easy challenges makes completing the Tour less of an accomplishment.
Acceptability of new answers: Some problematic challenges include:
- Challenges that are closed to new answers (most fastest-code and king-of-the-hill)
- Challenges that don't work with a large amount of answers (most answer-chaining)
- Challenges with little room for new, distinct answers (such as "Hello, World!")
- Visibility: We are actually looking for lesser-known questions here. While our 2014 challenge may still be unseen by some of our newest users, we're hoping to introduce challenges to as many users as possible. The age of a challenge matters as well, but not as much as the popularity of the challenge.
Remember, all of the above are relative criterion. The question doesn't have to be the ideal in all of the aspects, but a terrible question won't make the top 25.
Please include the tags of the question in your post so that we are able to easily choose a wide variety of questions
