Besides, zenmonkey's point about competition being counterproductive rings true for me. I would like to see a challenge that is sufficiently different from the 6WC, because the spirit of competition in that challenge was not helpful for me. The discussion was often negative and petty among those who dominated the leaderboard. I'm not sure about other participants but I found the discussion discouraging. I guess I'll just watch and see how the rules end up for this challenge before I decide whether to join.

Of course. I don't think that means that we shouldn't try to make a challenge more fair.
