We've got a bunch of code-challenge problems. Furthermore, a lot of them have a bunch of similarities in their scoring systems. I've taken the first 50 of them (excluding off topic), and classified them:
- Accuracy based: You need to estimate the correct answer based on your input. Your score is the percentage of times you are correct.
- Smallest output: We score you based on the size of your output
- Fewest steps: You have a limited set of possible operations. Each operation counts as 1 point, lowest score wins.
- Image accuracy: Generate an image, we'll score it based on how close it is to the original
- Modified code-golf: We're scoring the size of your code, but tweaking it a bit.
- Other: These scoring systems are pretty unique and hard to classify
Does this seem like good information to tag?
Do my categories seem reasonable?
What should the tags be named, and what should their descriptions be?
Which of these tags (if any) should be a formal scoring system?
Should we retroactively go back and retag? (There are currently 559 of them)
