daftcoder's blog

By daftcoder, 12 years ago, translation, In English

I watched the project in a month and this week I had a possibility to participate.

Many thanks MikeMirzayanov for the organisation of this project.

There are some offers concerning site improvements:

1) direct discussion with quoting

Discussion in the form of a tree happens rather inconveniently. The messages are posted nonlinear and it's sometimes difficult to watch updates in a huge topic. It seems to me consecutive answers with quoting possibility (in the form of the text and the link to a post) would be ideal.

2) source code viewing directly from the table

The question "And where I can see Peter's code?" appears frequently. It would be extremely useful to have possibility to watch the code directly from the table of competitions: when you press Ctrl + Click on a table cell you receive submit's queue. Clicking to the submit here would be very convenient for looking at initial code.

To facilitate code viewing of top's participants such thing will help here:

http://codeforces.com/contest/11/status/D?order=BY_ARRIVED_ASC

4) link to contest tutorials

There is no link (from contest page) on a post, containing problem's tutorials. In the absence of tutorials the link should make you offer to write tutorials.

5) nickname change possibility

Useful or not?

7) opportunity to subscript/unsubscript topic/someone's blog/whole forum

I'm really waiting for that.

8) login redirecting bug

9) recent actions bug

Dublicating messages on refresh.

10) delivery bug

11) "narrow screens" bug


Solved problems:

3) base of algorithms - Waiting for merging (and translating?) e-maxx and Codeforces.

6) rating graph - Implemented.

Thanks, fast ACes to you. :)

Also can I see a noftification of incoming private message?

    Ok, I see a reminder in upper right conner. But it's not easy to find him.

    email notification of incoming message would be great.

Also opportunity to change nickname (at least once in a month) would be useful.

A rating graph would be nice, but that's probably already in development.

And what do you think about forum threads?

Linear or tree-like?

    Both. And let people choose their own preference. I myself am used to TopCoder's linear view and would use that view if it were available.

Links from the Detailed view of Recent actions should conduct to thread and directly to the current comment placement (if it is the link of a new comment).

I suggest the authors start announcing about upcoming contests here - www.algorithmist.com/index.php/Programming_Contest_Calendar

            I've received "You've Won a Bye for the TCO10 Algorithm Competition". Because of my bad English (or bad wording) for a moment I've understood it as "You've had been disqualified".

            I'm understand "You have won a bye for the Qualification Rounds" but "You've Won a Bye for the TCO10 Algorithm Competition" made me scared.

I suggest to use logical operator OR in the search:
P OR Q
and searching something more specifically like country:TIMB

It will be good to have possibility to delete messages from Talks.

(for example i send screenshot as a picture and now having "narrow screens" bug :( )

    А еще было бы удобно если бы показывалось что у тебя есть сообщения (окошко выплывало, просто циферка стояла рядом или что-то еще такое). А то можно очень долго ждать ответа на сообщение.

      Там справа вверху появляется уведомление (правда оно синее и увидеть его сложно), а ещё на почту исьмо приходит.
      • 11 years ago, # ^ |
          Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
        Про уведомление вообще впервые слышу и никогда не замечал. по поводу почты я, например, всегда отключаю сразу все уведомления( может кроме как соревнованиях). Хотя в принципе нужно просто быть внимательнее.

Hm. About 2 hours ago all CF pages become a little bit wider. I have resolution 1024 pixels in width and now see horizontal scroll.

I think that <code> tag is the most needed tag of Codeforces.
  • 11 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it +1 Vote: I do not like it
    Maybe CodeForces can do better than a simple <code> tag.

    Unlike some other sites like UVa and TopCoder, CF supports a much wider range of languages. So it might make more sense to have language specific tags e.g. <c++>, <ruby>, etc.

    Keywords and syntax of some languages are very different from others, so a general <code> tag might not always highlight everything correctly.
    • 11 years ago, # ^ |
        Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
      I thought about that.
      But just simple <code> tag will be very useful right now.

      Maybe the code highlight is ready for almost all languages (we can check it by viewing code window).

      Also I have a feeling, that text editor is improving now.
      Hope that it's not just only a feeling.

          Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
        Yes, a simple <code> tag right now is better than nothing. I was just suggesting something a little longer term.

I would like text color in the blog. (red, green, blue, etc)
  • 11 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    So you want opportunity to change color of the text?
    • 11 years ago, # ^ |
        Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
      Yes, I want : some paragraphs are red, some others are blue, etc ... multicolor in a blog.

          sorry for my bad english, 

          for example, i like [red] this sentence [/red] and [blue] another sentence [/blue].

    Например, здесь всё по-прежнему, квадратики в формулах:

      Кажется это бага Operы. Через Firefox всё норм. К тому же ещё на некоторых сайтах Опера показывает квадратики.

      Обновил до 10.60. Квадратики.

      Снёс. Почистил папки. Поставил "с нуля". Квадратики.

      Говорят под Семёркой их нет. У кого семёрка, проверьте если не сложно

I think source code viewing from the table after the contest is most essential for creating a learning environment. Also there should be links to contest editorials after the contest is over like on Topcoder.
