I got one that was just: "write a web application". That's literally all they gave me for parameters. I decided not to be a dick and send them 5 lines of code returning http 200 so I set off and started a side project I'd been wanting to do for a while. Low and behold I wasn't even close to done after the weekend was over so I emailed them and said "sorry, but I need more time if you want the application I'm working on". I got an email inviting me in for an in person interview after I talked to an engineer for about 20min, so problem solved I guess.
