Showcase your language one vote at a time
Fantastic idea over at codegolf stack exchange.
An answer to this question with N votes (upvotes minus downvotes) will contain up to N snippets of code, all with a unique number of characters ranging from 1 to N. All the snippets will be written in the same programming language and attempt to showcase its obscure or interesting features.
Since all answers start off with 0 votes, answers will initially contain 0 code snippets. Instead, a short interesting fact or feature of the language will be mentioned in plain English, without using code or pseudocode.
Once a 0-vote answer receives a vote the user who posted it may edit it and add a 1 character long code snippet to their showcase. They can choose to remove the factoid or leave it there.
Similarly, when a 1-vote answer becomes a 2-vote answer the user who posted it may then add a 2 character code snippet to their showcase. They can keep or remove the factoid and the 1 character snippet.
If an answer quickly accumulates say 5 votes (N = 5), the user can include up to 5 snippets, one of each length from 1 to 5, as well as the factoid.
Thus users will continually have to monitor and edit their answers to continue to get upvotes and have a chance of winning the contest.
What a fun way to be introduced to new programming languages! Due to the nature of that site, they upvoted a bunch of strange joke languages, but pretty much ever popular language is represented as well.
Go there now and upvote your favorite!

Already bored of this bullshit.
I always like seeing samples of Aheui, because only a golfer would be willing to learn it. Since I assume it makes seriously meaningless Korean words.
That's some weird shit.
Most of the stuff from the first page is crap like that.
