A: Sandbox for Proposed Challenges

BubblerImplement 1-dimensional version of Multi-Take code-golf apl array-manipulation Background Adám and I were once discussing a way to properly extend some features in Dyalog APL. I came up with the following extension to Take, a function that takes some front or back elements (and an analogous exten...

@Adám CMC: Output the %GREETING_TIME% as defined in a Novell Netware login script: "Morning" before noon, "Evening" from 18:00 onwards, and "Afternoon" in between.
@Neil So 00:00 is "Morning"?
@Adám well, that's how I remember it anyway.

Kite is the practical language that requires the least user experience (in my opinion) that's not on TIO.
I learned this langauge easily by just reading the docs.

my pronoun is monicareinstateFix mispellings code-golf kolmogorov-complexity Wikipedia has a list of common misspellings, and there is also a machine-readable version! Your challenge is to input a string and fix the mispellings in it. The parituclar list we'll be using is https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:...

Q: What could go wrong when we make improper fractions proper again?

ZimMany folks avoid the "mixed number" notation such as $4\frac{2}{3}$ due to its ambiguity. The example could mean "$4$ and two thirds", i.e. $4+\frac{2}{3}$, but one may also be tempted to multiply, resulting in $\frac{8}{3}$. My questions pertain to what happens when we iterate this process -- al...

CMC: Take an improper fraction, convert it to a mixed number, then multiply the integer and fractional parts together. Repeat until a proper fraction results. Output the resulting sequence of fractions.
Q: How many numbers can we make?

ArnauldYou are given a non-empty list of positive integers. Your task is to figure out how many distinct numbers can be obtained by applying the following algorithm: Remove either the first or the last item from the list and initialize N to the corresponding value. Remove either the first or the last i...

@Neil I have no idea if this poorly golfed 83-byte Mathematica thingy counts: Try it online!. The problem with it is that it represents a b/c as a \[CirclePlus] b/c...
oh, you didn't need to output the mixed numbers...

Hi all! I've created a new room to discuss and brainstorm new potential esolangs. I have a few ideas myself, and in general, I love throwing around ideas for such things! Please join if such discussions sound fun :)
Also, please do let me know if advertising is inappropriate here. Just thought I'd do it once, in the general chatroom, since I just made and I can't imagine how else it ever gets seen
Isn't this site dead enough as is without forking to even more venues?
@pppery I'm mooooreeeeee than happy to do it here!
I just didn't think it was on-topic
not sure
@pppery It's a general discussion for the code golf site. I didn't think esolangs counted...
In this room, off-topic is fine when it doesn't interfere with on-topic.
6:27 PM
Just so long as you aren't interrupting a more on-topic conversation, it's generally fine
@Adám @cairdcoinheringaahing Of course. But then it still is off-topic. Which means it's only secondary to whatever happens here, and must be stopped whenever anything better comes along. Seems to me that's what making new rooms is for!
Just a heads up, we already had a room for that

Hasn't had any activity in over a year
@cairdcoinheringaahing But it's frozen...
Which means it doesn't even come up in the search
@AviF.S. I'm just pointing out that we had a room for it and it wasn't very active
I have no objections to you creating a new room, just letting you know of the past attempts at the same thing
@cairdcoinheringaahing Yes, thanks! Luckily, only one person is require to keep the lake from freezing over... Hopefully this one will go better (\|)
(That's my best finger's crossed, in case you can't tell...)
6:32 PM
Good luck! I might pop in from time to time, always got new ideas for programming languages
@cairdcoinheringaahing Thanks for letting me know!
@cairdcoinheringaahing Hope to see you there! They don't even have to be ideas... sporadic thoughts are more than enough!

Q: Solve user given math problem in Python

TanmayThe goal of this challenge is to solve a user given math problem in python. This sounds easy but you can't use eval or exec function. The programming language can be any version of Python Example: In[1]: 3x2 Out[1]: 2 In[2]: 3:4 Out[2]: 0.75 In[3]: 10%3 Out[3]: 1 Rules: As mentioned , don't u...
