How about creating a devRant leaderboard for the Advent of Code?
Idk if I did it correctly, but here's the code to enter into

    Larger leaderboard,

    Or, if you are asking for something else, I don't know.

    @theabbie yeah, but I'm talking about the Advent of Code; it's a game, where you have to solve a problem each day of December until the 25th.
    One can create private leaderboards (max 200 people though), so I figured it'd be fun to make one for us

    How do I participate exactly?

    @Ranchonyx you can register with github or sth, then just solve the problems

    I've always liked advent of code, but found the scoring really arbitrary - "time to complete after launch" is a bit of an odd measure, especially for a worldwide thing. If you miss a day it kinda encourages you not to bother at all, rather than to go back and give it a go.

    I'd much prefer a "x number of points for completing a day" style approach where you got more points as the challenges got harder, then the scores got frozen at the end of December. Means it's less competitive, but I see that as a decent side effect for a fun Christmas-themed coding challenge.

    The first day's problem was insultingly easy. Do they get harder as the days go on?

    @junon yeah they do

    Anyone still going with this? All easy problems so far, though we're having fun with the "neatest solutions" in any given lang in my team at work.

    @dontPanic Yesterday's required some thinking, but aside from that all pretty easy so far.
