How about a competition for coding a tool in PHP?

Pretty self explaintory,

Judged on the best one, winner gets points etc

I'll draft up a scoring guide if you all want to start brainstorming content.

a client for a trojan might be quite a nice thing to code.

quite involved and gives someone a good chance in showing off their skills.

atleast this way we'll get different submissions, instead of nearly every submission being the same.

Too awkward unless someone made a whole server as well. I could have a dummy client that sends raw packet data of '1' '2' '3' for different commands.

I'd suggest another application-style goal, but not a trojan client.

Maybe something with a more defense purpose?

Like designing a script to harden/prevent brute force attacks? Or other safeguards? The best and most innovative one gets the most points.

No, it really couldn't. PHP is an interpretted language with inherent issues when compared to a low or mid-level compiled language. Speed, extensibility, and permission-level issues are all there.

Why not something like a CMS where people can do as much or as little as they want? It'd be easy to judge- give points based on features, OSS-standards, modularity, complexity, cleanliness of code, etc.

No, nothing like that. Just code something that improves the security of a site to prevent brute-forcing, session hijacking, etc. It's not that hard to realize such a thing.

Why does there even need to be a set goal?

I think this kind of challenge would be more interesting: Code whatever the hell you feel like in PHP. Whoever codes what is judged to be the best script wins.

Points for code, originality of program and usefulness. All that crap.

that would be way to hard to judge,

if a program is original or usefull, that just an opinion. and you can't just someone based on you opinion.
you need facts like A has this and B hasn't got it so thats an extra point for A.

not just I think A is original so he gets extra point


so my point is that you need goals to judge such a compitition

so why don't we script something that can be judged on effifiency / neatness of code. like maybe a bruteforcer or some type of thing like that.

I definately prefer the idea that all entries should be around a similar topic. This appart from making it easier to judge makes it fairer as some awesome coders have problems finding out what other people want
