You aren't going to pay for all finalists' trips and accommodations, but now you're raffling trips? Interesting choice of priorities...

    Years of preparation and when you get "there", "they" prefer a photo! Is it a joke ?

    It looks as though photo lottery is cancelled? I suppose it was too short notice to work anyhow.

This is less than 50 days from now... Please send the invitations soon, I have heard that it is not that easy to get an Iranian visa.

    Have you been contacted about this? ("We will be reaching out to finalists about their flight and accommodation details through email.") It seems they did not reach out to me yet.

      Not yet. Only less than a month and still no e-mail.

      I think they should send all the details to us soon or their schedule might have to be change.

Here's some advice for the next year, you DONT have to hold your contests on your own poor servers :|. You can hold them in Codeforces. In your last contest, I wasted my whole time on A and finally it got first AC after rejudging.

    I agree that their servers aren't good. Really ! I do ! :D But I have to say that in the last contest, the problem with A wasn't because of the poor server, It was because of a mistake in the solution so some participants randomly got AC and some got WA. And although I think that it was a really big mistake and they had to be much more careful, I guess it was kinda your fault if you waste all your time on problem A! When you can't get Ac, you should let it go and focus on the other problems. :)

      I didn't mean servers are bad because of A. But when I got AC, I also got the penalty for the next 5 AC submissions. That's really bad. It should have count only the penalty of the first submission (because I got first AC).

        Yet that don't make their severs poor, that's a software problem, not a hardware problem :)

        Hey, you might misunderstanding something. I noticing that you are not on the finalist in the first place. So just curious if they really invite more people.

        If they do invite you, congrats. And let's meet there :)

        To get a reply, a good method is to ask a question without answering their question at the same time. Then they will answer your question much faster (just after a few days), and remind you to answer their question quickly to save time.

        At least that's what Swistakk did. Anyway, I have just asked my question again, and I have received my answer :) See you in Tehran!

          In our 2013 final we had 10 participants from 6 countries, but this year including the reserved contestants, we have to handle 45 invitations from 32 countries. 2 dedicated staffs have been allocated to this job. And we have just added 2 more staffs to get it done faster! :)
