e-maxx's blog

By e-maxx, 5 years ago, translation, In English,

In the light of the current Russian internet laws obscurantism, an insistent wish to move the site abroad emerged.

Let's try to choose the name you would like most of all:

https://polldaddy.com/poll/7857563/

(I have a weak imagination, so don't bother to suggest your options — you can check them, for instance, here)

UPD Thanks everybody, the poll finished. Results: the winner is e-maxx.io (25%), and the second by popularity is e-maxx.us (16%).

First, I would like to thank you for your well-organized, high quality collection of algorithm topics. I consulted it quite a few times and it was very helpful.

I did the poll, but I would rather ask if you have ever thought about integrating your collection into codeforces website. Probably, some kind of wiki would be good option where the higher rated competitors would be main admins and other users could give their contributions and connect the knowledge with codeforces/topcoder/etc problemset.

    That's just awesome idea. And most importantly it does not have to have anything to do with e-maxx.ru and some efforts could be made immidiately. Wiki-like system could be incorporated into CF independently. Systems that are live and open to everyone prove to be superior. Wikimedia (one of the largest project based on wiki) is the future.

    Let CF be the future too.

      Sorry, but incorporating a wiki-like system into CF would either require you to trash some present features or create something entirely new that works entirely differently than CF so far. Both of those choices are bad IMO.

      If so, it'd be better to create a daughter site of CF that would use the wiki system.

        I do not think adding a wiki (or closed wiki) to CF would harm anything. Up to now instead of wiki there are unsorted posts by administration (like "help" in the top-menu).

        I.e. the necessity for wiki exists already, even without adding algorithm manuals...

          Adding to CF: wouldn't. Turning CF into one: would. E.g. not changing anything existing into a wiki-system.

        Yes, I plan to make my site wiki-editable.

          Hello e-maxx :) I like the structured way your website collects competitive programming knowledge. It has been extremely helpful to me in the past. However, as someone who doesn't speak Russian I always had to use Google Translate to read your website, which as you can imagine causes some loss of information along the way.

          So I have to ask: If you make a Wiki out of your website (which would be great), are there plans to make your site multi-language? I'm sure there are Russian-speaking users who could contribute English translations :)

            Yes, there'll be multi-languity.

    I think the Competitive Programming Stack Exchange proposal will provide a very good platform where knowledge like this could be documented. Stack Exchange allows to ask a question and giving a comprehensive answer at the same time. It also allows the community to collectively edit the posts to keep them up to date. This could be used in a way similar to how programming knowledge is "immortalized" on Stack Overflow:

    etc. etc.

What about volunteers to translate the articles to English? :(
