## Challenges are what we need to survive

Some of our users answer almost every new challenge, but that's not enough to keep codidact alive if there are no new challenges now and then.

## Challenges should get some incentive

Personally I've posted questions on codegolf.stackexchange because that's where the action (and *reputation*) is. I will start posting more here, especially if I understand that my contributions are valid

## Challenges are a greater attraction to codidact (than answers)

If we want to get more users, they will be more engaged if we link them to a challenge where *they* could compete than if they see code golf codidact is all about answers in golfing languages they don't understand (*yet*). So, we should encourage challenges as much if not more than we encourage answers.

## Encouraging answers doesn't fit with the theme of code golf

While on sites like Stack Overflow, many poor questions are written with the hope of getting unpaid help, we don't have any of that problem in code golf codidact.
