We define 7 levels of questions in ZINC 15 based on how easily they can be answered.

Level 1

Can be answered by browsing to [zinc15.docking.org] and clicking the mouse. No editing of the URL is necessary. Free and public, no special access required.

Level 2

Answered in the browser, but requires editing the URL by hand. Most level 2 questions will become level 1 when we improve the interface. We refer to level 1 and 2 questions as "one liners" because the answer can be written in a single line.

Level 3

Requires the use of an iPython notebook, but with no privileged access to ZINC. These questions may of course also be scripted in python and run on the command line.

Level 4

Requires the use of an iPython notebook with privileged access to our servers, and thus are really only open to group members. It is our goal to promote as many answers as possible to level 3, 2, or 1, but occasionally, privileged access is necessary. Of course, these may also be scripted directly in python and run on the command line.

Level 5

Questions that can be answered in the ZINC shell (TM) but not in python. We can think of any such question, but it's existence remains a possibility.

Level 6

Questions that can be answered in SQL but not in the ZINC shell. Such questions exist.

Level 7

Questions that can be answered only be scripting SQL directly in python, or by otherwise combining the results of multiple SQL queries. Such questions do exist.

Level 8

Questions we are unable to answer.

Example questions are organized on this wiki using the category ZINC15:LevelN where N is 1 to 8.
