CPC or Competitive Programming Community is a Discord server targeting problem solvers and competitive programmers from all backgrounds and different platforms.

First let me briefly introduce Discord for those who haven't heard of it before: Discord is an all-in-one voice and text chat application that works on browser/desktop/phone. Every server can have multiple text & voice channels accessed by members of the server or limited to a certain group of these members. You can share code/text/links/pictures at the text channels and you can talk in the voice channels.

So why join the server? Basically, you get to meet other members and have group discussions without caring about down-votes. The server is currently active with over 290 members (still have a long way to go). Also, Discord has nice features such as pinning messages/pinging users/search function and many other cool stuff.

algo-chan:

 algo-chan is a bot I created to assign roles to new members. Roles? Yes, every member get to verify his identity using a command. This feature is exclusive to Codeforces right now. Depending on your Codeforces rating you get a role with different permissions and access to channels AND a different Color.

Currently, I am working on contest reminders and and algorithm/data-structure database. Soon you will be notified with upcoming contests of your choice and you will be able to lookup algorithm implementations using a special command: !algo

Commands:

Role Colors:

Unrated, Newbie, Pupil, Specialist, Expert, Candidate master, Master, International Master, Grandmaster, International Grandmasters, Legendary Grandmasters just like on codeforces, each rank will have it's own color and special access to specific channels. You will get your role automatically after setting your handle using the above command.

Moderators: These are the most active users that are willing to help manage the server in case some user decided to spam/troll/post unwanted material.

This server is non-profit and is managed by the community. The bot is going to be open source when it's ready. What I ask of you is to join and help us build this amazing community.

Join us by visiting this invite: https://discord.gg/P5G4NDq

Thank you all and I really hope to see you there.

Please note that the server has just been created so, don't let the current activity discourage you. Hopefully, we can gather as many members as possible and start having discussions after everything is up and running. For now you could help by sharing the server invite link with your friends.

You can request a Div1/Div2 role by sending me your discord tag or by directly PMing one of the admins/moderators on discord.

I wondered if there is any website that I can me and my friend code in it in the same time! .. just like google docs I can see what my friends write and I can write codes in the same time. I think it will be useful project if someone can build it.

Here's a list that I will try to maintain as much as possible. It should contain the discord tags and CF handles of the members until I finish developing a discord bot.

Soon you should be able to set your handle using a command (e.g. !setcfh ) so other members can know who you are.

Invite everyone you know so we can have an amazing chat room :) Thank you.

We now have about 40 members in the server. Few of which I think are dummy accounts given their names, haha.

For those who haven't joined, please do. For those who did, keep checking multiple times per day.

We almost reached 100 members. I am looking forward to an amazing post-contest discussion. We have a #spoilers channel now so we can discuss problems without ruining them for those who haven't yet solved them.

Before this round starts I want to let you know that the server is somewhat active right now and there is a post-contest discussion that usually goes on. If you haven't gotten the chance to check the server out, now is the chance.

 I've created a Discord bot that allows you to set your cf handle / lookup other users handles / get upcoming contest dates. That's all for today.

There will be reminders via PM on Discord. Please feel free to suggest features.

Commands are: !codeforces sethandle handle !codeforces handle discorduser (for lookup) !codeforces contests (for upcoming contest dates)

If you still haven't joined us I encourage you to do. We're still trying to attract more and more members.

    Currently I am hosting the bot on my local PC so it might be offline sometimes until I get a host. If you'd like to offer hosting contact me via pm.

algo-chan (Discord Bot) Update: The server has a bot called algo-chan. He will be your helper. He's only 1 year old so don't expect too much from him yet. He has the potential tho.

Right now, algo-chan will help you set your codeforces handle using this command "!codeforces sethandle yourhandle" (without the quotes). You will get a fancy color on the server depending on your rating YAY

He will tell you the handles of other members using '!codeforces handle @member'. So it's easy to know who you're talking with as most people don't use their handles as their Discord usernames.

Near future update: Contest reminder via pm and group mention.

Current server member count: 197.

Make sure to join us and invite more people. Thank you.

Cheers, Khaled

I really like the idea of this community to share knowledge among all of us. I am a programmer and a client has asked me to create a webcam videochat web page and I want to help me develop this application. I've been reading a bit about streaming video servers but I'm not really sure which server to choose. It is a special audio and video chat exclusively for adults. , similar to this: www.webcam-porno.es or www.livejasmin.com . If anyone can help me, I will appreciate it. Greetings.

    I do not think you can develop a streaming video like the one on these sex cam pages, you would have to ask the developer of this pages for help

Right now I am doing a Virtual Contest picker. It'll pick a contest for a given list of users where nobody has solved anything. If no such contest exists it will pick a contest where you solved easier problems first. Could be cool for group practicing.

If you guys have more suggestions or want to request some feature, please do.
