Hello guys, I'm sort of new here, but I usually hang out at other programming forums. I noticed there were a lot of programmers here, of every level. Some barely learning, some in the middle, while others offer their kind help based on their extensive knowledge. Anyways, I have a site going [ www.blanksite.net
] , it started in february. This site is everything to do with computers. and I'm willing to do anything to suit my members'/visitors' needs. I have seen in a forum I regularly go to, that they wanted programming challenges. So I thought that if I host these at the forums [ www.blanksite.net/phpbb2
], it will make a lot of people happy, since you can learn a lot from them, and from everyone else. Below is what I posted on the other site:

Hey guys, I'd just like to say that we're now having programming challenges like a lot of people in this forum wanted. I got the idea from a post here obviously and since it got a lot of positive replies, I decided that maybe making that come true would make a lot of you happy.
The challenges are all generic letting the programs/scripts themselves be coded in (almost) any language. This will be monthly, to give time to everyone to be able to participate since I know a lot of us have tight schedules. Ideas for the challenge of May and/or questions about this can be posted here [ http://www.blanksite.net/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=272
]. After the challenge has been set, it will be due the end of the month and/or a little early/late, to allow everyone to finish. Entries will be posted on the forum by the authors themselves.
This can be to promote how good a programmer you are, or how much you've learned. We're also willing to help if you need help on any of the challenges. This serves as practice to sharpen your skills. If a winner is to be selected, then his name will be posted on the home page. But I was actually thinking of just having people submit and have it as a practice instead of a competition. It's up to you guys though, feel free to give your thoughts.
So I would just like to tell you guys, of this activity. I'd like it if you guys would try it out, if you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I always try to make everyone happy there, so if there's something on the site or on the forums you'd like to see, or wouldn't want to see, let me know, thanks.
