Suggestion for new awards

Post by jfreiberg »

The decimator awards stop at 400 with the ultimate decimator award. I suggest extending this to the next several century marks. I suggest the folowing names for the next 2:

up to 500 : Penta-Ultimate decimator
up to 600 : Hexadecimator.

I can't think of a clever name to use for 700.

They currently cover 1-200, 201-300, 1-400. The obvious continuation would be 401-600, 1-800.

If there's a desire to add awards, Conquering Difficulties looks like another that could be extended. Possibilities include the obvious "Solve at least N problems at all of the difficulty levels" for higher values of N, or the more subtle "Solve at least P% of the problems at all of the difficulty levels". (Actually, I'd favour "each" rather than "all" as more precise, but that's a separate discussion).

I'm a fan of 'Hexa-decimator', for the pun alone.
