@kerbalstar You may want to update the OP with the re-reboot for the Ultimate Challenge. Not that many people are going to be attempting it anyways, but I wouldn't want to cause undue confusion with a link to a now-dead thread.

Sounds good, I will.

New Challenge added!

From the OP:

The Duna Outpost Mission Architecture Challenge. Currently in its second iteration, by @Death Engineering, this challenge challenges you to land 4 Kerbals on Duna before Year 5 Day 1, and to set up a permanent Dunatian surface presence by Year 10 Day 1, using only one lifter and a number of launches calculated by how much that lifter can lift. This requires MORE Planning as opposed to MOAR Boosters! My ( @Kerbalstar) own entry is underway!

Depending on how much time I have, I may consider rebooting the Apollo Style challenge since I see that it is available. I enjoy the "doing it _____ style" challenges; it would be a shame to see the Apollo Style challenge be abandoned. That said, it depends on what I am doing and how much time I have.

Great idea! I've toyed with this idea too, incorporating some modern KSP features like science/biome goals and launching from alternate launch sites. Maybe even a goal to recover the crew with some kind of boat or seaplane. Looking forward to it!

edit: and AAP stuff! :cool:

Identified as a thread of the month.
Accepted by the community in its first iteration as an amazing challenge by pure quality and volume of entries.

New challenge: Kerpollo!

From the OP:

 

Kerpollo! Currently in its first iteration, by @5thHorseman, this challenge challenges you to start a science career and land on every body in only 9 launches! That's right, only 9 times may a vehicle leave the Runway or Launchpad! If you want more challenge than a Jool-5 but less than an Ultimate Challenge, this is for you! You'll be doing a Jool-5. an Eve-2, a Duna-2, and a Dres-1! Check it out!

Oh wow. I'm honored and admittedly a bit humbled by an addition to this list of some of my very favorite challenges.

Status: No idea, @ATEC ?

I think there must have been a Stock Payload Fraction Challenge for as long as payloads existed.  Clear task:  Build and fly the most mass-efficient lifter possible to low Kerbin orbit.  How efficient are you though?!  Get the rulers out!

There was a more recent 1.3.x reboot of that challenge here:

@ATEC announced in a previous Heritage thread that the challenge is open for reboot.

New Challenge!

The "Eve Rocks" Challenge! From the OP:

The Eve Rocks Challenge.  Everyone knows it as one of the hardest things you can possibly accomplish in KSP.   The surface of Eve is littered with the debris of launchers that were almost good enough.  Time to return to the ol' stomping ground with your mahoosive landers? Now maintained by @Johnster_Space_Program

As someone who participated a bit, I'd say it collapsed under its own weight. There were far too many entries (even stretching back into earlier versions of the challenge!), not enough people judging them, and a fair bit of disagreement over how to resolve it all.
