Well, it's been a while.
To our new(-er) users, welcome to Topic Challenges. To our old(-er) users, welcome back.
In the spirit of improving the site, its questions and the amount of fun and learning (and teaching) that goes here, a tradition lost to time is now rekindled.
I'm talking, of course, about Topic Challenges.
The idea is to have a competition of sorts. Rather than have users compete, their questions compete. A better and more thorough description is in the linked post.
The abridged version is:
- A topic is chosen by the community, in Q&A style, right in this post. You can suggest a topic theme (see challenges #1 and #2 if you want a better idea of what's what) by posting your suggestion as an answer to this very question
- Once a Topic is chosen, a meta post (like the previous two) will go up, and the challenge will begin 24 hours later (specific time will be stated in the post)
- The challenges last one (1) week*. At the end of the week, a winner is announced by our all powerful amazing mod team.
- You can find more details in here.
And remember: There's no such thing as a wrong answer here! It's not CS Education if you're not allowed to make mistakes. So suggest to your hearts contest content!
I am referring to this at the CS Education site.
