( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
In a chat with dkubb the other day, we agreed on how much we'd love to see two additional sections of the monestary devoted to impromptu golfing and benchmark contests. Since a golf or benchmark arena isn't going to be added to the monestary anytime soon, we thought that a good interim solution would be to place contest-initiating posts in Snippets, prefixed by (Golf) or (Benchmark), to indicate that such a game is afoot. The snippets section seems like a good place because:
  • It's uncategorized, unlike Code Catacombs.
  • Many snippets are of ahhh... questionable value.
  • Snippets don't take up front page real-estate.
  • Snippets are expected to be short.

Of course, we'd like to hear comment from everyone on this, especially editors and vroom, before imposing such posts upon the snippets section.
