Hi everyone,

I am having a really hard time submitting my code to Topcoder's past problems. I used but it constantly gives me Submit Failed even after I (following some random advice on the web) resubmit it again and again. I also try the web arena and the Java applet but both of them takes forever to load the problem statement.

I am interested in how you are submitting to past Topcoder contests. I am aware that their problems are very good and I don't want to miss all of those learning because of some technical difficulty.

When all approaches fail, the Topcoder service is propably unavailable itself. The reason may be:

  • It's holding a contest so only a few problems from past contests are open
  • It's suffering from network issue or under maintenance.

You can try again after a while.
