Codeforces 8 years!

Most recently, Codeforces has celebrated its 8th birthday — a binary jubilee, the 1000th anniversary! I hope that my idea has worked and the result of the efforts has become an important part of the world of programming contests. I look enthusiastically at the future of the platform and I hope that the Codeforces team will be able to please with innovations, improvements and rounds over and over again.

Friends, we will be glad and grateful to a gift from you, your contribution to the future of Codeforces. Your donations will allow us to move forward and implement ideas. I appeal to all those who are not indifferent to the fate of Codeforces for support. Your help will not only give us the resources to work and develop, but will also inspire us as an affirmation of the demand for our efforts.

We need resources to pay rewards for problem writers and coordinators, development, operations and hardware upgrade. Work on Codeforces never stops. Please read the report on the results of 2017. One more year we have not slowed down, are full of enthusiasm and we are glad to see the growing audience of Codeforces.

For 8 years of work, Codeforces has helped many programmers learn more, gain new skills. I am sure that we can do even more in our common forces.

Thank you,
Founder and CEO, Codeforces
Mike Mirzayanov

It seems that in the payment gateway, there isn't an option for India in the dropdown menu for the country to be selected.

                Regardless of number, men are promised virgins in heaven. And the overall concept just presents women as sex objects, fruits best served ripe.

                  Hello dear, I'm Muslim.

                  Generally, we shouldn't construct our concepts on partial knowledges about things and then post that weakly constructed concepts. So, I prefer to say to you that a lot of tons of such problems (or questions) with Islam had been solved (or answered) before, and they are repeatedly published every time, and then they are solved again and again. So, we really should search for those answers to be sure about our concepts, and until that time, we shouldn't share those concepts with others.

                  For the problem that you talked about, Allah says to us like this: do what I say that you have to do and don't do what I say that you have to not do, then you will access the heaven which has things you cannot even imagine them.

                  And among those things, there will be delicious food, dulcet drinks and Al-Hour Al-Eeen.

                  Firstly, Quran didn't say that women will not have men in the heaven, but instead, Quran said that we will have what we want in the heaven.

                  Secondly, how does the concept of Al-Hour Al-Eeen present women as sex objects? don't you know that among the things that Allah warns us from doing it there is dealing with women in carnality and degenerate ways, so we avoid falling in adultery and other bad things, thus we have to deal with the woman from her mind, morals, etc.?

                  In the end, I prefer to summarize the concept:

                  Don't deal with women in carnality ways and you will satisfy your desires in the heaven.

                  (Remember, also women have to not deal with men in that ways, and also, they will be given in the heaven what satisfy their desires).

    You do not have a card? Looks unexpected for me. For example, in Russia almost every student has a card.

      Yes I do have a card. But in China, most cards don't support visa nor paypal. We have some thing else like this called UnionPay. And most people I know don't have a card with these icon on it.

      ps: I'm a high school student, and just reached 16 years old, which is Chinese legal age for bank card. So some of my classmates don't have a card. :P

          In China, even if some cards support UnionPay, they cannot be bound by PayPal. (The card must be a credit or debit card)

            No card has Paypal's logo on it, just like it would neither have Alipay's logo or WeChat Pay's logo. Enter your card number in Paypal and they will immediately tell you whether it is supported. This is faster than googling.

      Well in China only people with income have credit cards,and law forbids underage worker,so many student do not have credit card,thus they cannot use paypal easily. Although,some debit cards from some banks seems be able to use on paypal too(but others can't).

        I don't think Paypal will care if a card is a credit card or a debit card. Once UnionPay is supported, a card could be easily used by Paypal.

Supported. I hope there will be more contests in convenient time (not midnight) for China (and other East Asia countries such as Japan) in the future, since Codeforces has become a global platform, and I'm sure a lot of supporters in this campaign are from timezones like mine and have to stay up late to take part in "usual time" rounds. Anyway, thank you MikeMirzayanov for your hard and dedicated work in the past 8 years.

Mike, great work on the site so far!

Have you considered adding HTTPS support to the site? It's especially useful when you ask people to donate money. With HTTP, it's possible for a man-in-the-middle to replace the link to the donation page, and steal your money. I'm 95% sure that didn't happen in this case, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

HTTPS support would also improve the security of logged in users. It would prevent things like revealing user's passwords and hijacking session cookies.

Happy Birthday and also congrats to MikeMirzayanov for such a great platform (I never had a chance to be a problem setter and say these words:)

I was with you since Round 6 and once upon a time I could be a red coder (back to 2011 when 2000+ users were used to wear a red handle :D )

We owe you a lot and these donations is the least thing we can do for you.

Best wishes and keep going <3

I have a suggestion. Since the goal amount has already been accomplished, the remaining amount is most probably going to excess funds (which is a good thing)!

But since people will be helping next year as well, so these can be used to give away CF T-Shirts to winners/participants of some rated rounds once in a while which will be better as currently only 2-3 CF contests give away T-shirts an year.
