Hello everyone,

Several people are asking me when A2 Online Judge is coming back, and unfortunately the issue this time might take longer to fix it.

This is the server which was hosting the website in my garage for several years:

A2 Online Judge server

And I think it's time to move to the cloud, but this requires some money. I created a campaign to raise $3000 which I need to host it on AWS for the next 3 years at least. You can read more details here: https://www.gofundme.com/support-a2oj

Please support to bring the website back, even if by just sharing the campaign.

Thanks in advance,

Ahmed Aly

Your work on A2OJ is very much appreciated Ahmad, Thank you very much. I don't think there's a competitive programmer from the Middle East who didn't get benefit from it. There's a feature that I'm sure everybody would love to have it in A2OJ's groups which is being able to add Codeforces' Gym problems to the sheets. Some of the problems are really helpful but unfortunately they can't be added. Would be really nice to have this feature added.

I felt very sad seeing a2oj.com down so often recently, I used to get a bit mad but I didn't know it was actually hosted in a GARAGE! So I just wanna say sorry about that :D

Thank you, Ahmed, for your hard work in creating these great features and keeping it running all this time.

I really wish I could donate... But as you might know, me being in Syria, It's really hard to make a living.. and I have no easy way to give online payments.. :(

So here goes my modest full heartedly support for you and your website <3

      You are absolutely right. We can help that way.
      But I think Google Adsense team may take it seriously if they notice any kind of click bomb. I believe a lot of crazy programmers love A2OJ. So they (especially newbies) may get mad and click on the ads just to show love for a2oj and support it. I don't wanna see a2oj be banned by Google Adsense. We all love that platform.

Very impressive work, Aly!

I understand the difficulties running a website like this on one's own.

Hi! You may try to rent servers from SoYouStart (google it), it would be much more cheaper than AWS. Moreover servers are much more powerfull out there

As it seems, you got $5,230 in donations which should be more than enough for hosting it in AWS for the next 3 years according to your calculation. So why don't you make the website AD-free now?

BUG REPORT.

i have sent this by email, but did not get response.

When two problems with the same name appear in both Div1 and Div2, and both appear in problemset. A2OJ cannot correctly update the status.

I have finished Codeforces 505B and 506D. But No.63 problem on Ladder 19 doesn't pass. Also the Mr. Kitayuta's Gift problem in https://a2oj.com/category?ID=90 points to 505A. I have finished it, but the status cannot update.
