scored on some metric of their output.
For challenges relating to approximating constants/other numbers.
For challenges with a restriction on the amount of time a submission is allowed to use.
For challenges that require answers to perform network requests, etc.
Fewest operations measures the number of specified "operations" performed at run time.
related to the Brain-flak esoteric language and languages based on Brain-Flak. Note that challenges that require the answers to be in a specific language are generally discouraged.
Used for challenges that consist of multiple sub-challenges ("holes"), somehow combining the scores into one score. (Note: combining multiple unrelated challenges together is off-topic)
The puzzle or challenge involves repeated application of some transformation to the input. These puzzles often involve mathematical sequences or fractals.
Challenge related to the concept of trees present in graph theory.
For challenges regarding fitting the most number of a certain shape into another shape, or for packing a number of a certain shape into the most compact form.
related to the Haskell language. Note that challenges that require the answers to be in a specific language are generally discouraged.

For challenges involving either three-dimensional graphics, three-dimensional geometry or spatial data structures in three dimensions (e.g. octrees).
combination puzzles that involve moving flat pieces around to achieve a target configuration. Examples are 15-game or 2048.
For challenges that involve error output, such as compiler/interpreter warnings or errors.

directly related to solving, generating, or otherwise working with the minesweeper game.
For challenges asking participants to design a language or parts of a language.
indicates that the challenge involves electrical components such as resistors in some way (e.g. counting the total resistance of a set of resistors).
Used for challenges where answers make reference to themselves or their characteristics, such as length or character values.
For challenges pertaining to a formal grammar often a context free grammar.
Puzzles involving a word search - a word game that consists of the letters of words placed in a grid, which usually has a rectangular or square shape. Usually, the objective of this puzzle is to find…
about or related to encoding a plaintext, usually with one or more keys.
is used for challenges specifically related to clocks and the display of absolute time. Usually it should not be used for challenges about relative time.
For challenges related to Morse code.
Tasks involving writing compilers for various languages or formalisms.
related to the Lisp family of languages. Note that challenges that require the answers to be in a specific language are generally discouraged.
For challenges involving doing something at compile-time, rather than run-time. This means that only compiled languages can compete.
