[FEEDBACK] New and different challenges
I read all time about some things: 1 - Challenge option in Sololearn is not so good because questions are repetitive and people really don't learn coding languages. 2 - Challenges musn't to refer to maths because some people are "bad" for maths but are very good programmers. 3 - "Challenge of day" must to be an option in SoloLearn app to win XP. Please, I want to know your opinion about them. Thanks.
I have three issues with challenges: 1. Sometimes math is just too complicated to answer in 30 seconds. I am rather good at it, but identifying factorial function, counting 4 factorials and using them in multiple other operations is a bit much. 2. Many answers are spoiled by answer length. It's especially bad when there's two possible strings of different lengths. 3. You can't see the questions until your opponent completed the challenge. I'd like to take another look at the question I answered wrong and maybe copy it to code playground to see why it didn't work as I expected. Too bad, because you have to wait for a day or two if you're unlucky and by then you will already have forgotten about it.
1. Very good to beginner in a new weapon 2. Maths are tricky ecpecially it involves calculation of loop and array 3. Real challenge to test our knowledge
I sometimes feel that those who reach Platinum by only playing tons of challenges and not posting appreciable codes are simply wasting their time. Challenges are just for fun or to just give u a warm up of a language you have just learnt.Investing so much time and sometimes repeating the same set of answers will do no good to anyone.
Timer is extremely short for challenges of programming language
Blazing about 3 you are correct but 1- You can check my codes, I hace several quizzes from challenges. 2 - Many times to do 1 I waited to finished challenges but something I did screenshots and next, I wrote by code
