As the TopCoder TCO 2013 Round 2A did not take place as planned but was moved (with sniper precision) right on the place of the Codeforces Round #177, we decided to reschedule the contest. I have to admit that my first urge was to leave everything as it is — TopCoder knew of Codeforces Round 177 and I cannot approve of such an approach to solving their technical issues. On the other hand, no fault lies on the community, and especially on dear witua, the writer of the forthcoming round. You’d like to participate and the writer is keen on making a round as popular as it gets. Besides, the problem coordinator Gerald would have fallen under much pressure, juggling work and TCO. That’s why the Codeforces Round #177 moves to the time that was initially planned for Round 178, and Round 178 moves a little ahead.

We apologize for the schedule inconveniences and hope to see you among the Codeforces Round #177 participants. It will be fun!

Topcoder problems are good. But these technical issues are rather annoying... It is not the first time. Well, we can enjoy that Codeforces is much more reliable :)

    yea , Codeforces is much stable than TopCoder but still both of them have pros & cons but in my opinion Codeforces win :D

        Well, he said that "both of them have pros & cons", so one of Topcoder's pros is his nice profile picture :))

Sweet! While I don't participate in TopCoder contests (the arena doesn't work well for me often, I guess it's some problem with my system), it's nice to see this sort of thinking about contestants!

navigation and looks of codeforces are better than topcoder. But topcoder has better tutorials than codeforces. But i like codeforces more than topcoder

It's nice seeing a coder community that respects each other and does this sort of thing. Just goes to show that coders are the elite of the Internet :)
