Hello Codeforces!

I hope all are doing well.

We ( Team Codedigger ) are happy to announce that we are starting a new type of contest i.e. Short Codes (in terms of characters present in your code).

The first short codes contest is on [contest_time:320440]. To participate Register Here or join our Codeforces Group. Registration will start 6 hrs before the contest. There will be 5 Problems to solve in 2hr duration.

Rules are Simple — You have to write the smallest possible code for each Problems. In other words, instead of time penalty, now penalty will be based on your code length (number of characters in your code excluding whitespace, newline and tabs). You have to solve problems as usual contest but ranking in our standing ( will be based on how short your code is?.

For a fair contest, language accepted are GNU GCC C11, GNU G++11, GNU G++14, GNU G++17. AC Submission in other language will not count as AC for our standings. View Sample Standing here. Two Demo Standings are available here based on previous codedigger contests and last standing will be live once contest started.

Two points we are improving on —

  1. Instead of counting number of characters, we should count number of tokens in the program and exclude comments while calculating penalty, this will give freedom to choose any variable, not necessarily short.

  2. Instead to calculate penalty based only on code length, we should give some penalty to time and wrong submission.

Motive behind to organise such contest is to make contest interesting. If we are not obeying any codeforces' privacy policy, we are sorry for that. Feedback and Suggestions are always welcome.

Kudos to the Codedigger Team. Also We are launching new version of codedigger website soon. The newer version will contain a lot more useful features.

UPD 1 : Registration has been started. You can register here.
