Village Pump/Why not give a separate page to each language for each taskI am new here, sorry if this question have been already discussed.

Why don't give a separate page for each implementation for each task?

Then you can discuss each implementation separately, watch only implementations in your favorite languages ignoring the others, include all implementations for a given language on one page. --Alexei Kopylov 16:03, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, sorry to post this here but I don't know a better place. I wanted to create a new proposed task "Create statically-validated API" but it's impossible to create a page without solving a captcha, and the browser I use doesn't show the captcha (I was able to create this account using a phone browser, but that's no good for entering much text or code). Maybe someone can move it to the right place? (Added: I also had to de-link the urls to bypass the captcha).

By the way I find this site a huge pain to use because of the captchas. Email verification for account creation is likely to be enough.

create statically-validated API[edit]

This is a challenge proposed by Tony Morris here:

It is only for statically-typed languages and the challenge is to implement a Tic-tac-toe API that supports operations like starting a game, making a move, and seeing who won, where invalid arguments (such as asking who won an unfinished game) are rejected by the compiler as compile-time type errors. So it is mostly a test of how expressive the language's type system is.

A Haskell solution (not by me) is here:
