No, I am not worried about it. 8)
I mean if we change restrictions in test code here, losing some score can be a concern for the existing solution authors. I do not see other impacts.
no: "valid one time, earned forever" (unless... But that's a completely other story x) )
edit: why are you worried about that???
I won't lose any score if my old solution becomes invalid due to a new test code update, I think.
looks like cpp = 2 * py and js = 0.8 * py. I guess we could consider c==cpp.
cpp = 2 * py
js = 0.8 * py
About the actual limits, a comfortable one might be arround 3000-4000 in python. Or is it too strict? Or not enough...?
This way, the simple harcoding of the reduced set isn't that easy, but it's still doable with some trick. I guess hope that will definitely forbid the use of a larger set.
Going with this number, I'm only worried about happy_ryan2's solution... that one would be considered invalid...
ah, I never saw this message before because you put a spoiler flag on it x) (no notifications in that case).
about the number of valid/invalid, it's not a problem if it's not balanced. Moreover considering the number of base nets isn't that big.
and thx :)

@Kacarott: you mean that his solution isn't using the full set? I thought so. Mmmmh... Then, it might be possible to enforce some constraints, while staying reasonnable, I guess (something around 3000 chars, maybe a bit more, but his is 6000 so... even more?)
I put a part of solution into the Test function in C. C should not have that concern above now.
my only question is actually: do you think we should ("try to" cause we know it's rather pointless, in fact) enforce a char limit?
I haven't that approach, so I'm not sure about any details.
everything is handled (I modified the C and C++ versions to resolve the last point). I'm just waiting for the feedback of unnamed about the point we discussed above.
To be continued...
I agree with you that there is no good way to limit hardcoded solutions.
However, I am not convinced yet the suggestion need be removed since test code can't police it. It implies the direction of solving, without missing the right experience. It likes a Klotski board game says you can only make 2D moves.
I'll take a closer look at this today.
