perhaps make a rule like "a challenge must have atleast 1 page of entries (so bad challenges that have 1 page of everyone asking questions get left out)?

Initially I thought this was a good idea, maybe x pages or x number of replies, but it would open it up too much unfortunately.  I think there's always going to be an element of everyone having to trust my judgement on what qualifies as Heritage.

I would say that we all know "heritage challenges" when we see them. If there are a lot of badges in people's sigs, it's a safe bet that it should be considered for inclusion on this list. If not, then it's not popular enough to be considered. Aside from that, the current criteria seem to be fine.

 Perhaps you should freeze the list where it's at for now, and conduct a poll once a month for new entries?

Good feedback thanks!  As above, I think there's always going to be an element of everyone having to trust my judgement on what qualifies as Heritage.  I've done enough challenges (my sig is a very small cross section) so hopefully people trust me to make a good call.  With that in mind I was searching for the PRO SSTO Master thread but couldn't find a recent one.  Is it still kicking around?

I like the idea of a poll once a month, particularly if there are some really good ones up for grabs in the TOTM thread so I'll think about that.  I'm against a freeze as I want to keep this as live and current as possible at all times, and that includes moving challenges into and out of both sections.

 While Pro SSTO was a fun and difficult challenge, I don't believe it ever had the popularity or longevity to be called "heritage".

Here's the most recent thread (which never really got off the ground)

 

And the original

Best,

What about the Kerbin aviator circumnavigation challenge?

I tried to find how far back it goes, but I'm not sure :D

Spoiler

Thanks for the plug mate :wink:

I think the idea of a one stop shop for popular challenges is a good idea. Which is why I vote a sticky for this thread ! 

What do you reckon @sal_vager ?

My guiding principle is what makes sense for KSP as a game and to that end I wonder if it would be an idea to incorporate some challenges into KSP via the mission system. I will keep going with the K-Prize challenge thread as long as people are interested but would be only too happy to hang up the tape measure, put my feet up in the Dog and Booster and let the AI take the strain!

What could possibly go wrong...?

 

 

It's definitely something to think about :)

A while back I took over the Jool 500 challenge (with permission from @eloquentJane the original poster) for the current version. Should I put that challenge here so it can be added to the list?

I'll take a pass on this one, but thanks very much for highlighting!  I reviewed the old (and new threads) and there's been a lot of discussion which is fantastic, but minimal entries.  Part of the problem which looks to have been discussed is hitting a computer capacity problem.  If this one really takes off in the future I'll happy consider it, but in it's current format I'm afraid it doesn't represent a Heritage Challenge.

Ah thanks for digging this out.  Yep not ready for the Heritage section.

Oh yeah wow good spot!  At least 4th iteration, thousands of replies over the threads, and huge numbers of entries.  Congratulations @zolotiyeruki you are now running a Heritage challenge :).  OP will be updated shortly!

WOOOT!  Thanks @sal_vager I wasn't really expecting this thread to go anywhere, but it has and has now become a sticky thread!  Fantastic news and thanks for pinning :)

The Affordable Space Program challenge was a featured thread and attracted a wide variety of complex and varied entries. It uniquely required development of ground operations and more complicated docking operations. Since it required multiple launches and landings with the same craft, there was a higher level of effort, so it's not one with hundreds of entries, but what entries were completed were extremely high quality.

This challenge made you actually use a reusable craft (SSTO) for what it was meant to do, and if your landing wasn't accurate, you paid more than just a few funds to return the craft; you actually dealt with getting it back to KSC for refueling and mounting a new payload.

Seeing as the Eve Rocks challenge and the Duna Permanent Outpost Mission Architecture Challenge are both now being rebooted, it does leave room for this one potentially.  I'll review the challenge and let you know if I'm going to add it!

Don't let that stop you re-booting it though :)

Really good to see this thread being used for what I intended of it!  Good on you for re-booting this one.  Looks like we are getting a shiny new badge too!

I will update the OP shortly :)

I've decided I'll give this one a miss for the moment, unless I get a barrage of posts saying it's definitely Heritage worthy.  But again definitely don't let that stop anyone from re-booting it!  It may make it in the future!

The project lasted from august 2016 till jan 2017 as people became disinterested with it and I don't like bumping my own threads to keep it alive.
