I heard that submissions were deleted.

So apparently it is true...why did you guys take the questions off? I don't really see the point here :/

25 problems were temporarily moved into a contest, and should be back with all of their submissions shortly.

That is just so awesome. (Not for me, but this is general opinion)

Presumably, people can live without 25 of the easiest problems on the Judge for a few hours.

The panic was more due to the number of points and submissions lost, rather than to the nonexistence of these problems.

Ah, no. For me, it was the sentimental value, and I think it was the same for most people. Actually, the fact that they were the easiest questions might have worried a few of the new members.

But seriously, I can live without them. I just didn't know how many problems were removed, and I thought everything would disappear and I would lose all of my code...when I read that email.

Grrrr...I keep thinking "Rafya" instead...

The issue is fixed (I think).

Thank you PEG OJ. :)

Because Alex has made a problem, Crosswords, shouldn't his name be highlighted in yellow on user list?

He authored the problem and so he was credited for it. That doesn't necessarily mean that he is a Problem setter though.

Links such as
'' and
(essentially any click on 'Login' on any page) causes a 404 error.

Perhaps due to the '/' char?
Tested on Chrome 19 Dev and Firefox 10 Stable.

Viewing analyses was broken yesterday, so I fixed it; but it seems that in doing so, I broke the _GET stuff. I reverted the change, but now it looks like I need to find some other way to get analyses to work :/

for technical reasons. Any correct solution will now earn full points.

When I try to submit in Pascal, I get this compile error:

74099.pas(16,1) Error: Can\'t call the linker, switching to external linking
74099.pas(16,1) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted
Error: /usr/bin/ppc386 returned an error exitcode (normal if you did not specify a source file to be compiled)

I tried resubmitting correct code from earlier solved problems, but it gets the same error. What does this mean?

I'm having a really hard time fixing this. Restoring stuff from backups made a few months ago didn't help---so I think the problem might be some recent reconfiguration on the host side. I'll see what I can do about this.

I've implemented a dirty workaround, so Pascal should be working again (but who knows for how long?)

A reminder not to do this. It clutters up the submissions page. Don't complain if you find that I end up deleting all your solutions to a particular problem in an effort to delete all the duplicates.

Addendum: incorrect submissions will not magically become Accepted if they are resubmitted.

The div on the right-hand side of each problem description page has changed slightly. Now all the links are at the top and the info is at the bottom. Also, it shows you a list of languages that are allowed (because I wouldn't want anyone to write a solution and then try to submit it and find to their dismay that their effort was wasted because the language isn't allowed).

@Admins - Might I suggest having a separate colour for Mr. Fenty's students? Or a separate page? The Users page's getting rather cluttered with the mess of blue *Other users*.

This box ( now runs an IRC server.
You can also use the web client at, if you are lame.

for your amusement, logs

the webclient does not work
(in google chrome for me)

It won't work if the necessary ports are blocked (so for instance, it won't work at school). It should work at home though...

Alternatively, you could try Mibbit with the following steps:
  • Click the "Server" link to the right of "Connect: Mibbit[webirc]"
  • Type in "" in the "Server" box
  • Type in a nickname in the "Nick" box
  • Type in "#help" in the "Channel" box
  • Click "Connect"
