You're welcome, though it wasn't too hard seeing as there are only 2 pages to the challenges section. I think I'll attempt to make a similar thread for important/interesting discussions from general chat and maybe something along the same lines for diagrams/crease patterns. It seems like it was just yesterday, but the forum has been up for 6 years now, and the search function has become less useful (searching "monthly folding challenge" brings up over 1,800 topics). If anyone thinks of a thread with enough content that should be added to the list, just post below.

For the "General"-section such a list already exists. Wolf did a pretty good job there:

Oh, didn't see that one :p. Thats fairly similar to what I had in mind, it might not be worth going through the 30 pages, but I'm sure there are some uncommon gems in there.

Thanks Joe for the effort. Now if one day I participate and win, I'll know what not to propose as a challenge.

I like your list, Joe! I don't much enter the challanges, but if I do, I (like Brimstone) will be able to see the already existing challanges, and be able to pick a new one accordingly.

Thanks for the effort!
