Hello Codeforces!

During the past few weeks we've been working on modifying the jailer system to support interactive problems. You can read more about them in this blog post.

Right now we have 3 basic problems in the archive, but we are concerned the system might still have some bugs. So we'd like to ask for your help. We are particularly interested in:

  • Wrong solutions that get an OK verdict
  • Correct solutions that get a WA verdict (or TLE, MLE, RE).

We'd like to go through these checks as fast as possible, because we have a surprise prepared for the next contest.

Whoa, you really make progress. If I'm not mistaken, so far Codeforces was the only platform with interactive problems and (almost) regular contests. Other platforms, which exist for years, haven't implemented it yet. Nice job.

      But it does not hold contests, right?

        No, it also holds contests. Now don't say "but it is not regular, right?" as you have enough e-penis now.

          Where is a calendar with their contests? I can't see anything on their website.

            can't you see "contest" label? An image in case you still missed:

              I meant that the "coming contests" page is empty.

                If you already know there were contests held in past why do you ask "But it does not hold contests, right?"? CF also runs out of contest sometimes, what's your point? You could only argue that they do not hold them regularly like CF.

        That is true in some way. There have been really few contests in the last years. I don't know how someone can hold a contest there or even if there is an specification in how the problems (input, output, solution, validators, etc) must be prepared, which is sad since I began in competitive programming there.

    Codechef also has interactive problems in Long Contests.
