Overall, really cool. Def worth expanding this further! I wish I could see the code of the leaderboards though, to see how they got such low scores.

Pros:

- Really fun challenges - Love the concept of leaderboards - Easy signup

Cons:

- To get low characters, can do "hacks" that you'd never want to do like not having an ending "/style" tag, or abusing shorthand/whitespace

* Don't get me wrong… it's super awesome to see what can be done with CSS and browser behavior. To get the best score possible one needs to ignore quality tho. :D

Pros:

Quite a few really great and entertaining challenges. • Solving a challenge feels awesome; finding a 'better' solution feels even better.

Cons:

There is no way back once you got hooked. • Reducing the character count can get incredibly hacky. *

Also, it would be nice to have a bare minimum for markup validation. Perhaps mark validating HTML entries that render fine with a green tick so competitors know the baseline. I'd think 150 characters validating beats 150 characters not validating, yeah

Pros:

I love this idea as it encourages you to test ideas and approaches you might not ever consider in day to day frontend development.

Cons:

Can you save along the way? I wasn't ready to submit, but my browser died and I lost what I'd done.
