Proposal: Math Challenges

All of the current example questions seem to be math problems posted for the entertainment of others to solve. Should it be on topic to ask not for solutions, but hints to hard math problems that you are stuck on? That is, are questions about math challenges on topic, or just math challenges themselves?

What about questions about general solution techniques for math challenge questions, like coloring arguments for tiling problems or invariants for algorithmic puzzles?

    I think not; that seems like the role of MSE. I think the OPs "math challenges" are meant to be people who already know the answer to their problem and want to share it with other recreational-mathers. – Frpzzd Sep 4 at 19:45
