Hello!

I would like to host a capture the flag event on CW.
Essentially people can sign up to participate in the contest.
There will be multiple challenges (mostly security related, but I am sure we can figure out additional non-security tasks) which you will have to solve (alone or in a team). If you solve a challenge, you will be rewarded points.
The person with the most points when the challenge ends, will be the winner.

Is there interest? I would love to have such a CTF here on CW. It is really great fun!

LiveOverflow does a great job explaining basic concepts and how such CTF might work:

Of course it will be :walrii: releated and I have already thought of a few challenges. If someone would like to help me prepare some challenges, feel free to join!
As already mentioned, I am not just planning security challenges, but other fun ones, so everyone will have fun.

@Snektron, @DJ Omnimaga, @Streetwalrus what do you think? Could we run such a CTF here?

Great that there is so much interest ;D

Now, how long should the CTF run?
I will pay everything up to 4 weeks from my own money. If we want to run it for longer, donations are appreciated.

Due to current poll results, I will start the CTF on May, 1st.

Hooloowalrus

Wait CTF?
I do CTF.
If you want help with things, just ping me on IRC. I'm already going to write some challenges for UIUCTF, so that takes priority for the moment, but this seems like a great idea and I'd love to help out. Count me in!

I'm not entirely sure if it's possible for this particular ctf but CW definitely can host stuff for you.

May 1 is in 4 weeks. Is that enough time to prepare?

I think May, 1st should be fine to get everything up and running. If I really can't make it, we will start on May, 6th or May, 13th (my Birthay), but I will announce this change ahead of time if it really has to happen.

I would be glad if CW could host it, but wouldn't that somewhat disqualify the admins (which would be sad IMHO)?
If everything breaks, I have found a hosting provider that would work for this CTF. The problem is the funding here. Also what will we do for prices?

DJ Omnimaga

Sounds fun. I doubt I will participate since I know nothing about security and the like, but I'm glad to see many :walrii: interested.

Not just security, also some other basic tasks ;)

DJ Omnimaga

I have way too much other stuff to do, though. :P

If the admins don't mind, we'd be glad to help.

Thats really nice, but since most of the admins will participate, I already paid and registered a VPS ;)
This is a great site and I am fine paying it. I have registered 6 months. So we will be able to run it as long as we want ;D
Specs: 2.2 GB RAM, 4 vCPUs, 200 GB disk space, 1 TB bandwidth/mo, 1 IPv4 IP.
