What are you up to? This has nothing to do with programming in Haskell. Please stop mistreating Project Euler and use the username you use on Project Euler so that we are able to locate the user that does this kind of things.


Anybody restoring the disgusting contents of this page is willingly infringing again. That cannot be considered as ignorant behaviour. hk


This page has totally nothing to do with Haskell, and therefore doesn't belong in an Haskell wiki.

I already tried this before, but he just reverted the page..

I disagree that a list of numbers could even potentially infringe on the copyright. First of all, where does this list of numbers appear in the copyrighted material? Secondly, it is clearly a tiny fraction of Project Euler's work and would reasonably fall under fair use.

I also believe that copyright doesn't apply here.

However, I don't see how this page helps to promote Haskell or serves any purpose besides upsetting the Project Euler folks.

This page is a lot different in that regard from the other disputed pages that contain actual solutions, mostly written in Haskell, which serve an educational purpose. (n.b. I have not actually read them, I'm going by the discussion.)

I protected this page due to the edit war, but I'm not necessarily against deleting it. What do other people think? —Ashley Y 01:24, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I also have no problem with deleting this. It doesn't help Haskell any, and just upsets people needlessly. I want to see code and ideasdons 04:06, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

The page doesn't take up much space, and would be useful for people testing regressions while working on solutions. I'd rather it stay. CaleGibbard 04:40, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree with those who would like this page removed. It serves no useful purpose (it's easy to test possible solutions directly on the Project Euler site) and has nothing to do with Haskell. Robinrobin 12:15, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

To help you in your discussion about the usefulness of this page: I altered the limit for problem 10, so the answer here is not valid any more. Moreover: if the new answer appears here, I will change the limit for this problem again. I'm planning to do so for some other problems but will not give any notification about which problem and when. I thought it fair play to notify you. hk

Hk, what's your issue with this page? Surely the solutions to the problems are programs rather than the numbers they output, so are the numbers even spoilers? —Ashley Y 11:17, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
