I wanted to ask that is there something like code arena available for CodeForces problem anywhere for one on one fight like its there on Hackerearth. Is there any website that provides such a platform for Codeforces problems or Topcoder problems?

If there is no such platform available will it be a good support for Codeforces to have such a built platform here itself? Please suggest on this.

Thanks for the help.

Happy Coding

I was wondering that can I find somewhere for Topcoder which question is for which rating like we have here. Or is there any other platform which does it like this for Topcoder?

Is Numpy allowed on Codeforces for Python or no? Or is it allowed on any judge like spoj, codechef, etc?

When practicing, the rating is shown for each problem often distracts to solve a problem. Sometimes the problem is very easy or easy but has rating written on it 1500-1600. Can I switch off this feature of Codeforces for my convenience?

Hi, Actually I wanted to participate in Topcoder challenges as I do in Codeforces but I am confused that which challenges are for competitive programming as many challenges go on parrallely on Topcoder. Can someone one guide me what challenges regularly are for competitive programming as on Codeforces there are Div 2,Div1 and Educational rounds etc. Thanks in advance.

Having been on Codeforces for last 5 months, it feels great to have some very helpful people and feels awesome to be a part of such active community. I have been doing CP for last 5 months constantly and practice daily but quite oftenly a query disturbs me is that should I be using Python for CP.. I have been doing quite a lot of python since I started off with cp and have been comfortable with it.. But due to the C++ popularity in cp I tried C++ too for around 1 month and realized that during that time interval I was more of thinking of things to use for language rather than the main crux or logic of the question... Now my question to all of my friends is that should one use python for CP if he is comfortable with it and want to think more of logic to the question rather than being involved in the language and searching how can be something implemented...
