I would very much like if people actually read the Other Challenges before submitting them. I have now grown tired of declining submissions that doesn't fill the requirements.

For example, 99% of the submissions for Other 1 is regular images (non-animated) and doesn't contain a username at all. For me to accept a submission on Other Challenge #1, the image has to be animated and it has to contain your own username.

Please read before trying to complete something!

Design a colourful animated GIF image. The image must include your username


Sounds pretty idiot proof to me.

Bwahahaha! Oh how wrong you are.

You do realize this is HBH we're talking about, right? I can't count how many times I had to decline .jpg's, .png's, .mp3's... My personal favorite was a text document located on the person's PC. I mean, how the hell do they expect us to accept C:\Documents And Settings\I'mAnIdiot\mypicture.txt as an animated GIF file?

I guess I should also add to this thread that copying and pasting logic answers from... anywhere makes you look like a fucking idiot. You will be caught and you will be punished. If you have to cheat, can't you at least put some effort into concealing it? Maybe change a word or two? Or do you really think the admins are idiots?

I knew there were some pretty dumb people on this site, but if what you're saying is true then we need some kind of idiot test.
Something to test common sense and if they dont pass, then label the motherfuckers as an idiot until they DO pass. This shit makes me very disappointed.

It's called Basic Challenge 1.

Maybe it would reduce your workload if it was made clearer that before you click "check" , that it is an admin reviewing certain submissions , as opposed to an automated bot that everyone is then more likely to try to attempt to fool with some random shit .

I actually think this is a good idea, for other and logical challenges.

You are right, but anyway people should read the challenges description before trying it (not only for other challs).

knowing how to view the source of a page doesn't qualify you with having common sense. Obviously idiots have passed that test and still managed to be... idiots.

Hmm. Requiring 100 points or more before allowing people to try the Other challenges would help.

That is a stupid suggestion. Other challenges are (for the most part) the simplest ones. That's like putting a block on basic challenges because people keep saying they're broken. Why would you want to restrict access anyway? People are idiots, that's how it works. Making them earn a couple more points isn't going to magically change anything.

I know it's been mentioned before, but I say we set something up so whenever a new member joins, a PM (or by some other form of communication) is sent containing the rules, link to the FAQ, some mention of the helper bot, and a general welcome. Or, since writing a message such as that and getting it set to send out would be oh so much work and everyone's so busy, I agree with whoever mentioned that it should be specifically written somewhere that real people read what you send in.

I mentioned like two months ago that we should have an actual test on the rules and the faq. just a multiple choice quiz. It'll also give justice to the admins to give out more warn for stupid things. "You've been warned. You had a fucking quiz about the rules. Now suffer the consequences for being an idiot."

This would definitely go hand in hand with how people keep fucking up with the Other challenges.
