I had a very heated debate with Radewoosh about how we should colour-code some of the results.
We both agree that the "Accepted" result has to be green and "Wrong answer" has to be red. But we had slightly different opinions about "Time limit exceeded". Surprisingly we both found people that agreed with our views. I don't want to bias you in any way, so I am not going to say it here, but what colour do you see when you think "TLE"? What about "Runtime Error" / "Memory Limit Exceeded" / "Compilation Error" / "Pending Judgement"?
TLE --> Yellow , RTE --> Black , MLE --> Magenta. Compile error --> same as it is
However, I feel this post is for contributions farming.
This post is definitely for contribution farming. The simpliest way to resolve this question once and for all — is to allow everyone themselves choose the color for each verdict.
Somewhere in account settings should be an option to make the perfect matching between verdicts and colors!
my suggesstion is to change result labels. Happy new year! Too slow! Too hungry! Wreck! Choose your fate! for pending
Well there should be sensible defaults as well, most people are not going to bother with choosing their own colors.
use xiaowuc1's recommendation from Baekjoon Online Judge: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/112240?#comment-999998 (wow 999998) But maybe keep judging as gray, and differentiate MLE and TLE. Codeforces doesn't have much partial so yellow could be used for TLE instead and MLE could be magenta. Additionally WA/etc on testcase 1 should have a different color as well, maybe darker or lighter versions of all the colors
But before this codeforces should work on a native dark mode or smth lol
oh! the runtime error will be one of the headquarters.
Accepted — Green
Wrong answer — red
Everything else — As it is now.
I see both tle/mle as yellow, compilation error as black, runtime error as dark blue and pending judgment as dark gray.
That's exactly what Radewoosh said. Can you explain why?
I'm not sure, but probably it's a mix of colors from judgers i was using early on (solve 3, szkopuł etc.)
From the best online judge:
Partially Accepted: #EFC050
Wrong Answer: #DD4124
Memory/Time Limit Exceeded: #FA7268
Runtime Error: #0076C0
Compilation Error: #0F4C81
Pending Judgment: #A49E9E
Not a huge fan that WA and MLE/TLE are so similar. What judge is this?
bruh misinformation ???
NO WAY THE 1000000th COMMENT
btw imo maybe keep judging as gray, and differentiate MLE and TLE. Codeforces doesn't have much partial so yellow could be used for TLE instead and MLE could be magenta. Additionally WA/etc on testcase 1 should have a different color as well, maybe darker or lighter versions of all the colors

Accepted Green. Any other verdict should be transparent.
Personally, I think that you just have it all wrong
acm sgu flashback!
Honestly, I think that such color coding would be a great April fool. Imagine seeing red and then being mad about getting accepted. Or seeing wrong answer on test 2 and you get hyped because you finally solved the problem.
But on any other day of the year it's just evil.
"Wrong Answer" never looked so nice! lol
True, the color of a verdict should be the color that it propels you towards.
Penalized rejection(WA,TLE,RE,...) : Orange
Non-penalized rejection(mainly CE), or waiting for judge(WJ) : Gray
Jury is broken : Red
For compilation error if it shows me "you are dumb" then, also i don't have any problem uwu
Too many colors would be a bit confusion, maybe two or three colors atmost would be great.
Wrong Answer on pretest 2
Running on test 11
Accepted — Green
Wrong Answer — Red
Time Limit Exceeded — Yellow
Runtime Error — Orange
Memory Limit Exceeded — Purple
Compilation Error — Gray
Pending Judgement — Same as background
I tried to think of them as the color spectrum. TLE and RE are yellow and orange which are between red and green. TLE and RE can be swapped but TLE is the one we see the most and using the traffic light colors for the main ones makes more sense. Purple is next to red if we think of the spectrum as cyclic. CE is gray because it's usually not penalized. Pending judgment is the same as background to make it easier to notice when the judgment is done.
I was thinking of them as background colors. If you want to change the text color, the background color won't work. In that case, you could use a lighter shade of gray.
All errors are red (WA, RE, CE)
All exceeds are blue (TL, ML)
Pending is gray
lol, imagine being in top 10 contributers only with shitposting
Every verdict should be rainbow colored and wrapped with ♂️ signs. Should look like this: ♂️Accepted♂️
if you mean lgbt, then f**k you and all the people who support you!
I upvoted only because it looked like he was satirizing the absurdity of the given question. I suggest you consider the variant as well
i have a similar question. what do you think about painting solved problems in color of your rank?
TLE — Blue
MLE — Yellow
CE — Gray
RTE — Purple/Gray
Pending Judgement — No extra color needed
In my opinion, all 3 WA TLE and RE/MLE should have the same colour. "Pending judgement" could be yellow or light grey.
Doesn't matter when you can't tell apart green and red.
