mzbear: finally fixed my buggy code, it seems i can finally generate all valid moves

mzbear: 430 lines of code so far :D

mzbear: there we go, submitted first version with a basic heuristic, picking largest shape that blocks the greatest number of potential enemy moves ... let's see how this fares

mzbear: at least it's no longer rand() ... and it seems to be better

mzbear: referee doesn't enforce all the rules!

mzbear: ohwell. next, i'll need to either setup a local referee or implement some search algorithm, and i dont want to do either lol. this is too much work



YodaMaster123: Please avoid placing these links here. I think that there is a channel dedicated to this stuff.

Uljahn: #clash is for CoC invites, go there please

jacek: oO

YodaMaster123: You can flipendo wizards???

YodaMaster123: :joy:

Default avatar.png davihear29: does anyone know how to play this

Default avatar.png davihear29: game

vladshouldgetlost: because im confused by this

YodaMaster123: Ask Automaton2000

Automaton2000: why don't you just ask your question

jacek: oO

Astrobytes: :grin:

YodaMaster123: :P

Default avatar.png davihear29: in knew to this

jacobhasnofriends: hello how are you all?

YodaMaster123: Fine :)

jacobhasnofriends: good

Astrobytes: You kids really should pay attention in school. Or you'll grow up to be idiots.

YodaMaster123: ? I do :P

Astrobytes: not at you :)

vladshouldgetlost: i do

Default avatar.png davihear29: Astrobytes these people r my friends

jacobhasnofriends: our computer science teacher is happy tho

Default avatar.png davihear29: they mess around a lot in class

Default avatar.png davihear29: but our computer science teacher doesnt mind us playing this

jacobhasnofriends: vlad is my name and user vladshouldgetlost is offending me

jacobhasnofriends: block him

Astrobytes: I'll kick you all again

jacobhasnofriends: no please

YodaMaster123: I see what you mean now _astrobytes

jacobhasnofriends: block him

jacobhasnofriends: its offensive

jacobhasnofriends: telliung me to get lost

Astrobytes: ttfn jacob

AntiSquid: mistake island :thinking:

Default avatar.png davihear29: astrobytes jacobhasnofriends messes around in class

Default avatar.png davihear29: hes very annoying

AntiSquid: tell your teacher

Astrobytes: not us

Default avatar.png davihear29: im trying to learn

mzbear: take your drama elsewhere please

Astrobytes: shut up and code then

Default avatar.png davihear29: but cba

Default avatar.png davihear29: i am

Astrobytes: get out the chat and learn

Default avatar.png davihear29: im stuck tho

AntiSquid: but you raise your issue here instead of classroom . none of us if present there

Default avatar.png davihear29: ok im sorry

AntiSquid: is present *

Default avatar.png davihear29: i didnt mean it

YodaMaster123: go on somr other site

AntiSquid: lol YodaMaster123 no .

Default avatar.png davihear29: no

Default avatar.png davihear29: im trying to learn python3

Astrobytes: well ask a meaningful question, you might get a reply...

YodaMaster123: :P AntiSquid_ they areny doing anything here anyway

AntiSquid: they have class here, don't be mean

Astrobytes: some of them do try. Occasionally.

AntiSquid: but they could create their own chat room #plymoth_school done just like that

Vlad123645: hello @vladshouldgetlost is offending me as he is bullying my name please deal with it

AntiSquid: ok

YodaMaster123: @Vlad123645 deal with this on #plymouth_school_clowns

AntiSquid: now you insult the entire class

Default avatar.png davihear29: oi leave me out of this

YodaMaster123: Sorry : 😐

Astrobytes: bans for those two next time squiddy

Astrobytes: so do you have any questions davihear29

YodaMaster123: Maybe they should raise the level requirement for chat? Right not its too easy to just create a new account and solve Oboarding for Chat privileges.

Astrobytes: It is rather annoying at times

AntiSquid: it should be on individual basis

Astrobytes: Maybe it should be like KoL, you have to take a literacy test at the Temple of Literacy before you get access to chat

YodaMaster123: :joy:

Vladisgettingbullied: :joy:

Astrobytes: tks, sorry on phonecall

AntiSquid: technically without them having access to chat they might be able to "constrate" better

Astrobytes: hahaha

PlsDontbanme: please dont ban me ill be good

Default avatar.png davihear29: astrobytes this is the annoying kid

PlsDontbanme: oh wow

PlsDontbanme: what did i do

Default avatar.png davihear29: plsdontbanme is the annoying kid

PlsDontbanme: im not

PlsDontbanme: u are

Default avatar.png davihear29: hes the one whos making a new account every time

Rockstar555: guys doing coding to make a program

Uljahn: :rofl:

Astrobytes: bantastic!

Astrobytes: Hopefully that'll keep it quiet for a bit

Default avatar.png nsrsn: guys i have a question. i started those days codingame solving easy puzzles. I came up to ASCII Art puzzle. Is a good approach to check firstly for solutions on internet and then try to solve or just go and try to realize the solution?

Astrobytes: nsrsn: do you really have to ask that? :o

mzbear: nsrsn: always better to do it yourself, never try to find complete solutions off the internet

Default avatar.png nsrsn: if i can't do by myself?

Astrobytes: check the forum, ask in chat etc

AntiSquid: well if someone points a gun to your head and asks you to solve it quickly sure, but won't ever happen :P

AntiSquid: ask what you're stuck with nsrsn

Astrobytes: If you can't find any help in the forum, ask meaningful questions here or on discord and chances are someone will help you out

mzbear: it's okay to google for generic things like "how to make a loop in python" or "how to sort a list", but don't google for anything puzzle-specific or you wont learn to think on your own

Astrobytes: ^^^^ this all day long

mzbear: pretty much anything from Stack Overflow site is fair game to use, you can find answers to a lot of basic programming things there

AntiSquid: you get solutions once you solved it, you could google for other solutions too

AntiSquid: actually you get solutions from this site only for the language you've done it in

Default avatar.png nsrsn: maybe let me ask better question: how you get 'good' at codingame?

by 'good' i mean being able to solve medium problems.

AntiSquid: do what you can do ... then the ones you can solve

mzbear: just keep doing more of the easy ones, eventually you'll be able to spot medium ones that you know you have a shot at solving

AntiSquid: find something that interest you, really best to skip puzzles you don't like aren't interested in

mzbear: some "easy" puzzles aren't all that easy, and some "medium" puzzles aren't very hard at all

AntiSquid: that line between easy and medium isn't as straightforward as the sites like you to believe, depends on topic / problem statement etc

AntiSquid: between any difficulty level really

AntiSquid: for example you might be able to solve breach already if you have the patience and it's in the hard / very hard section . so w/e

mzbear: the more code you write the better you get at it. and AFTER you have solved a puzzle, look at other people's solutions, and try to understand how they work. you'll learn new things

Astrobytes: Breach belongs in the 'annoying' section :P

AntiSquid: you might be better off to try a random multi game that interest you

AntiSquid: Astrobytes i think the intent was to create a kind of "hacking/cybersecurity" themed puzzle, but it failed imo ...

Astrobytes: Yes, I agree.

Uljahn: do classic puzzles first and community puzzles later, also you can deduce the difficulty level of a puzzle by the number of ppl who solved it

Default avatar.png nsrsn: ... and if you are actual software engineer: how codingame is helping do get better at programming? or better to ask: do really getting better at solving problems = getting better as a software engineer?

AntiSquid: AutomatonNN how about a "what's my mother's maiden name" puzzle as clash of code :thinking: let's see how good the clashers are at OSINT

AutomatonNN: eulerscheZahl is there a way to see the problem with the contest and it compiles to the same parenth

Astrobytes: lol

Uljahn: you mean a software engineer doesn't solve problems?

mzbear: codingame definitely helps you get better. there are many types of programming puzzles that you might rarely run into at work, but every different type of puzzle helps you come up with new ways to think about solving problems

AntiSquid: best to try and contribute to github repositories in that case ... nsrsn, that helps a lot more and also private projects, CG is general problem solving

mzbear: many of the techniques you learn are universally applicable, things you might not have thought of if you hadn't gotten exposed to them in a different context

YodaMaster123: How come it has a typo that no one uses?

YodaMaster123: The parenth thing that AutomatonNN said.

AutomatonNN: and i still dont understand why you can do that

Astrobytes: It's not the smartest bot in the world

YodaMaster123: But it generates sentences from words right? How did it find that typo?


Automaton2000: and i still don't get how it works

Astrobytes: :rofl:

YodaMaster123: :P They are pretty smart

AntiSquid: because the lines are based on crap users wrote in chat, so if there are lots of typos and people ping euler nonstop you get Automatont NN

Astrobytes: that article explains them both pretty well

YodaMaster123: I see it "Such a character-level bot is also capable of misspelling (it might be desirable to reproduce common typos and variations) and producing non-words."

Uljahn: NN (LSTM) generates sentences letter by letter i think, so there is a chance to fail at some point

YodaMaster123: Yeah, I saw it. Awesome that it can even construct full words with such a high success rate!

Astrobytes: It also pings euler

Astrobytes: (NN)

YodaMaster123: :joy: How does Euler stop it?

YodaMaster123: Spams some words in the chat?

Uljahn: :hammer:

YodaMaster123: :P

Astrobytes: yeah, NN gets a kick sometimes

YodaMaster123: And how did they prevent Automaton2000 and AutomatonNN from pinging each other?

Automaton2000: i just think about it :p

AutomatonNN: Soma its a bit of a community puzzle

Astrobytes: They do say each others names but they prevented an infinite conversation somehow (thankfully)

YodaMaster123: I thought that there was some if else in their code preventing them from pinging each other.

Astrobytes: they either respond once or don't respond at all iirc

YodaMaster123: Ok

Astrobytes: So yeah, there'll be some condition in there

Astrobytes: You can ask Neuman n or Agad e (if you see him) for more details ofc

YodaMaster123: Will try that.

Astrobytes: Also, they're (both?) open source afaik

YodaMaster123: Oh? Can someone send me the links?

YodaMaster123: Google Drive right?

Astrobytes: All linked in the article

14jblackburn: homonculus

Levvis: how to print in python?

14jblackburn: reported for stupidity

Levvis: eat my shorts

YodaMaster123: Come on, please stop.

Astrobytes: Levvis: be polite or I'll kick you like your mate there

Astrobytes: print("be polite")

Astrobytes: Must be a full moon today.

YodaMaster123: Yes all of the lunatics have come out to the open.

Levvis: thats not very nice

Astrobytes: schoolkids can be awful. Can't ban the IP's though because it spoils it for the kids that actually want to learn something

Levvis: what have i done wrong

Levvis: this guy just called me a lunatic

AntiSquid: suggesting to your colleague to eat your uncooked shorts

Astrobytes: :rofl:

YodaMaster123: :sweat_smile:

Levvis: just a joke?

Astrobytes: No joking at school.

AntiSquid: the FDA would say otherwise

Astrobytes: Go and code Levvis. I told you how to print in python.

Levvis: didn't know moderators were the speech polic

Levvis: don't kick me i actually use this site

Astrobytes: Are you here to cause mischief in the chat or learn something?

YodaMaster123: There is a goldmine of information in the postmortems.

Astrobytes: I'm not going to kick you if you're being well behaved.

Levvis: why is everyone so uptight

Astrobytes: Mess around in the class, not in here. That's all.

AntiSquid: not me, but it's because of previous chat events

Levvis: such as

Astrobytes: Other schoolkids spamming crap constantly.

AntiSquid: i will write up a full report and post it to you by tomorrow .

Levvis: asking to print is an invalid question?


Levvis: so what is the problem then?

Uljahn: i'd prefer questions you can't google in 15 sec

YodaMaster123: Or any questions that you can google.

Levvis: just want to be part of the community :'(

Astrobytes: Well stop being so combative and crack on

AntiSquid: ya i wouldn't have kicked the other guy either, but everyone deals with things differently

darkhorse64: Levvis: be part of the community excludes trolling, bad manners, stupid jokes, typing crap

darkhorse64: *being*

Levvis: darkhorse64 I literally have no idea what you're talking about; I asked how to print

darkhorse64: not only and this is what we do not want to see here

Levvis: coding community is so hostile to beginners smh...

Astrobytes: All this time you've wasted in chat, you could have written a web scraper by now

YodaMaster123: I was a beginner last month. They were extremely helpful.

AntiSquid: you could quote some satirical lines from south park at this point and i wouldn't be able to tell if those are your own words

AntiSquid: Levvis

Levvis: this guy just roasted me and thats okay but what I have said isn't?

twitlydoof: They need to make it so that people who create clash of code (public) can decide what modes they want to allow

AntiSquid: add in there "i thought things changed now that we have biden as president elect"

Levvis: codewars>

Astrobytes: You have real sensitivity issues eh.

Default avatar.png thokura: yop yo

Default avatar.png thokura: ppl

Default avatar.png thokura: hey heyh

AntiSquid: hey

IamFish: sup

YodaMaster123: Hey

Skynse: hi

twitlydoof: what the hell is going on

twitlydoof: 5 times in row shortest mode

jacek: aww

AntiSquid: isn't shortest mode better somewhat? the other ones are focused on how fast you submit

Default avatar.png JBM: onceyou got optimal answers, everything degenerates to how fast you submit

twitlydoof: short mode is a test of how well you know your language

Default avatar.png JBM: short mode is a test of how well you adjust to the appropriate language

YodaMaster123: What is the best compiler for C++? Something like Visual Studio?

twitlydoof: you can only adjust if you know the language to begin with

LastRick: short mode is a test of the language itself

twitlydoof: @YodaMaster123 I think you're confusing yourself with IDEs and Compilers, check them out, and since you're using visual studio I am assuming you're on windows, so the compiler you're probably is using MSVC, if you're asking for IDEs windows using C++, VIsual Studio is probably what you should go for, although I'd suggest checking it out on google

YodaMaster123: Thanks twitlydoof.

IamFish: Anyone else getting a lot of CAPTCHA checks for CoC?

Default avatar.png ChampionCoder: Yeah happened to me nce

Default avatar.png ChampionCoder: *Once

LastRick: I see them when I'm playing a lot of games in a row

Default avatar.png ChampionCoder: If you play too many games

Default avatar.png ChampionCoder: You get CAPTCHA

Default avatar.png ChampionCoder: If you stop CoC, play tomorrow, No captcha

NoobCod3: hello guysa

IamFish: makes sense

NoobCod3: hello everybody

IamFish: ello

Default avatar.png dev-tommy: Hi

Astrobytes: greetings

struct: hmm today the copy from clipboard permision hapened to me

struct: While using the CG Ide

LastRick: interesting

AntiSquid: ?

AntiSquid: what permission?


LastRick: i think they updated the the IDE or site. that plus the left side dots

struct: its in portuguese

struct: See text and images from clipboard

LastRick: well other than mine was in english, yes, it looked like that

IamFish: i got that several times yesterday until i clicked allow. weird

YodaMaster123: MysteriousCommitterMachine_c283?? Where`d you get that name?

YodaMaster123: AutomatonNN, how`d he get that?

AutomatonNN: well i will be the first to make it learn on this one

jacek: eeyup

jacek: AutomatonNN what did you learn today

AutomatonNN: "Bounds me a little bit better than the boss" or something

Astrobytes: well, that's something at least AutomatonNN

AutomatonNN: could you suggest the contest?

jacek: :notebook: :football:

eulerscheZahl: notebook handegg?

Astrobytes: notebook fake-rugby-ball

FerreM.: hello there

Luke521: hi

Default avatar.png AndresFVR: hi

Default avatar.png SzootGan: hi

jacek: c-c-c-combo breaker

Default avatar.png SzootGan: is somebody here who can help me with one basic problem in python?

jacek: ask specific question

AntiSquid: will it rain tomorrow?

AntiSquid: sorry, needs to be in python, how do i make an api call to find out if it rains tomorrow, in python SzootGan

Astrobytes: import willitraintomorrow

LastRick: I am also available for intermediate problems.

AntiSquid: if i see another long chain of loss streak shenanigans i rage quit for the rest of the year @_@

struct: loss streak where?

AntiSquid: anywhere

Astrobytes: what you playing AntiSquid?

AntiSquid: CIF

Astrobytes: ahh

jacek: ?

Astrobytes: Code of Ice and Fire

Astrobytes: struct, how's STC going?

AntiSquid: should have said dish detergent damn missed oportunity

Astrobytes: Well, cleaning agent. I would've still got it :P

struct: I paused it after finding my sim number was being incremented 2 times

Astrobytes: lol. You didn't find out why yet?

struct: No I did

struct: I had sims++ two times

struct: in the same for loop

Astrobytes: ah ok. Playing something else instead?

AntiSquid: was hovering around 40-50 for the majority of the submit, then got dropped straight down, almost free fall .

Astrobytes: Gold?

struct: nothing for now

struct: I should go back to STC soon

Astrobytes: for sure

AntiSquid: ya CIF gold

Astrobytes: gold is a bitch of a league in CIF, I need a full rewrite

AntiSquid: i admit i need full rewrite, but i refuse

Astrobytes: I tried that in the unofficial 'contest'. Failed so gave up

Default avatar.png JBM: wazza

AntiSquid: hi new

Astrobytes: hey jbm

Default avatar.png JBM: heya astroes

Default avatar.png JBM: how's the drama

Astrobytes: lol

Astrobytes: over I hope

Astrobytes: talk about a storm in an SSD

Default avatar.png JBM: innit

Westicles: heh heh

Astrobytes: you were quick off the mark with your contrib, kudos

Default avatar.png JBM: didn't expect the Westicals complaining i'm making fun of him part

Default avatar.png JBM: yeah you laugh

Westicles: JBM, I wasn't really mad, I had an angle

Default avatar.png JBM: not my first time

AntiSquid: imo the other guy was complicit too

Default avatar.png JBM: cf

Default avatar.png JBM: errr

Default avatar.png JBM: gimmme a miunute

Astrobytes: Me neither. It seemed like a very fair pisstake of the situation

Default avatar.png JBM: well

AntiSquid: make one about avatarless users

Astrobytes: Westicles, you did see the funny side right?

Astrobytes: lol JBM. We can always count on you to make a point!

Default avatar.png JBM: ihad to ask on #fr

Default avatar.png JBM: "who's on which side?"

AntiSquid: but not on releasing a multi Astrobytes

Astrobytes: heh

Default avatar.png JBM: "oooh that too complicated for me i'll punt"

Default avatar.png JBM: i'll admit the westicles puns are more transparent than the velcoro ones

Default avatar.png JBM: please suggest better ones

AntiSquid: fullcoro, wellcored

Default avatar.png JBM: well i thought cptnloops was fine

AntiSquid: fullgoroe? :thinking:

AntiSquid: vicelcoro

AntiSquid: AutomatonNN help

AutomatonNN: also the performance works in bronze

Astrobytes: CardinalLeft

Westicles: oh, they are fine. I have a very saucy contrib I'm afraid to release. I thought I might get an angle to release it, but it goes way way to far so no

Astrobytes: lol, contrib war

Default avatar.png JBM: needs more meta

Westicles: anyhow, that's all done. I've got something new to get in trouble about today

AntiSquid: ghost in the shell, only you need to code the actual ghost from the movie ?

Default avatar.png JBM: pray tell

jacek: eris pads her chest

Astrobytes: As long as everyone takes it in good spirits and sees for what it is I'm good

Default avatar.png JBM: scroll much?

Default avatar.png JBM: well honestly

jacek: nah, just random text

Default avatar.png JBM: i haven't so much as opened the subject contribs of the drama

Astrobytes: :D

Default avatar.png JBM: (ergo,needed to ask #fr about the gangs)

LastRick: I'm trying to find who mentioned this in the forum, but it was suggested to limit contributions. I found that interesting.

Default avatar.png JBM: was easticles

Default avatar.png JBM: i had marked as read too much to notie by then

LastRick: was it? i can picture avatar and I think it was someone else

Default avatar.png JBM: *notice

Westicles: I had one firm supporter on that one

Default avatar.png JBM: i've been clashing a bit at noontime

Default avatar.png JBM: ye gods the quality plunge

Astrobytes: It's a bit ridiculous from what I've seen

Default avatar.png JBM: got that horrendous "convert cm to ft/in" on

Default avatar.png JBM: *one

LegendaryStone: Hey I didnt understand that challenge vysor do you mind sharing your code please?

Astrobytes: I can't moderate clashes because I don't clash, not my thing, but jeez...

Default avatar.png JBM: statement gives you "cm to feet" and "cm to inch" ratios

jacek: ?

Default avatar.png JBM: then expects you to ajust for rounding errors

Astrobytes: "no clash is too easy"

Default avatar.png JBM: WITHOUT telling you there's 12in in 1ft

Default avatar.png JBM: oh this one's not what i'd qualify as too easy

Astrobytes: "no clash is too bad"

Default avatar.png JBM: just wtf

Astrobytes: "no clash is too wtf"

Default avatar.png JBM: ask us to convert to in, thne format as ft/in

Default avatar.png JBM: OR

LegendaryStone: wish everyone shared their codes :pensive:

LegendaryStone: im just a lil noob trying to learn

LastRick: found it, it was Di_Masta. He said something I agreed with, basically, it's a little overwhelming to keep up with all the new puzzles right now.

Astrobytes: sounds like a very badly written statement to me jbm

Default avatar.png JBM: ask us to convert to ft/in with actual precise not rounding-sensitive definitions

Default avatar.png JBM: yup

AntiSquid: (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

AntiSquid: tab crash

Default avatar.png JBM: following the statement to the letter got to convert 30cm as 0ft 12in

Default avatar.png JBM: which is incorrect

Default avatar.png JBM: for *some* ruleset at least

Astrobytes: I don't know if it's people chasing the moderation quest or just the number of new clashers/players recently but there is even more of a quality issue these days, multis excepted (I believe)

Default avatar.png JBM: multis have the great advantage

Default avatar.png JBM: that they aways even out

LastRick: The point I was going to make is (finally getting around to it) I was surprised by Thibaud's response that "as long as the quality of contributions...". I think that's the problem, what defines the quality of a good clash? I don't know. It's not really codified.

Default avatar.png JBM: the rest is subject to complaint

Astrobytes: hm, yes

Default avatar.png JBM: what's the end of the sentence to "as long as the qual..."?

LastRick: Astros: Yes, I think the homepage is part of it. But in fairness, I think the fall contest also delayed people going to the contribution page.

Default avatar.png JBM: not sure i agree

Default avatar.png JBM: been getting stupid comments on tvc since.... well it self-dates

LastRick: JBM: "as long as the quality of contributions is fine and they respect the guidelines, I don’t see a need to limit the number of contributions a member can make. "

Astrobytes: I would start with clear statement, correct testcases, correct and sufficiently appropriate validators as a minimum

Default avatar.png JBM: yeah

Default avatar.png JBM: thanks

Default avatar.png JBM: i'd agre with the last part

Default avatar.png JBM: but the first half is ungrounded

Astrobytes: time for another add zero

Default avatar.png JBM: having much material is good for clash

LastRick: I agree with the last part (don't limit) but the problem is it assumes the first (good quality) which frankly isn't always there

Default avatar.png JBM: having mediocre material kills it

Default avatar.png JBM: yeah we agree there

LastRick: yes

Astrobytes: It's become more of an issue recently, I don't think anyone can deny that one

Default avatar.png JBM: i was top ranked in clashing in the early days

Default avatar.png JBM: it felt fair

Default avatar.png LuaCultist: hello

Default avatar.png JBM: know all the statements

Default avatar.png JBM: type a short solution as fast as possibl

Default avatar.png JBM: of course it needed investment

Default avatar.png JBM: which is some kind of "unfair" to newcomers

Default avatar.png JBM: solution: more clashes, so you can't "know them all"

Astrobytes: that's kinda the point if you want to be top in clash tho isn't it

struct: if you want top 10

struct: you need to memorize

struct: You check test cases and know the answer by hearth

Default avatar.png JBM: but if you get the surprise gotcha

Default avatar.png JBM: it's really no fun

Default avatar.png JBM: that 0ft12in was one

LastRick: i enjoy them as a change of pace to the bots. but it's a full time job to sift through the contribution page right, especially if (following the rules) you actually code your own solution to everything you approve

Astrobytes: well yeah, that's what JBM was saying. And know how to do the best with whatever appropriate language asap

Default avatar.png JBM: "i followed the statement to the letter and it's wrong, wtf"

Default avatar.png JBM: "ok i can hardcode test 4, but what is the validator gonna be?"

Astrobytes: Allllll stuff that *should* be picked up at moderation stage

Default avatar.png JBM: it was a full time job before the quest

Astrobytes: Now some don't even bother to moderate any more

Default avatar.png JBM: now it's just approve friends and reject bad titles

Default avatar.png JBM: well i certainly don't read all of them anymore

Astrobytes: *some of the best previous moderators I mean

Astrobytes: It's kinda sad to see

Default avatar.png JBM: dunno if i was the best, but i've edited a lot of lines ofstatements

LastRick: Astro: You also have the problem that those that CAN moderate (e.g. higher levels), with good programming skills, would probably rather be doing other things.

Astrobytes: Well, you know, most regular and fair puzzle/clash moderators I mean

Astrobytes: There is that LastRick, but there's been some hardcore clash/puzzle moderators who seem to have dropped off since... since the dropoff in quality

Default avatar.png JBM: want the precise date? ;p

Default avatar.png JBM:

Default avatar.png JBM: there used to be 15XP for moderating with the majority

Default avatar.png JBM: that led to other drama

Astrobytes: haha, yes I did read that one

LastRick: I'm still relatively new so forgive me. Is that the day the homepage changed?

Default avatar.png JBM: wouldn't know

Default avatar.png JBM: i get to cg via bookmark

Default avatar.png JBM: and my bookmark is on the forum

Default avatar.png JBM: but as that post goes, the day the homepage changed is mostly well-known

Astrobytes: the dayyyy the hoooomepage changed <piano tinkle> <pause>

Default avatar.png JBM: :D

Default avatar.png JBM: <longer pause>

Default avatar.png JBM: <you can feel your sense of rhythm dripping out>

Astrobytes: hahaha

Default avatar.png JBM: changed to hoooow it's nooooow

Default avatar.png JBM: <satisfying chord resolution>

Default avatar.png JBM: whew

Default avatar.png JBM: diverging cadence averted

Astrobytes: well played :D

Default avatar.png JBM: close calll

LastRick: I fell down the Concisely Garbled rabbit hole again.

Astrobytes: *Grabbit Sole

LastRick: I was stuck on that one post about the 20-person clique and I was like, I don't know ANY of these people. Where's Euler?

Default avatar.png JBM: it's not a clique for nothing

Default avatar.png JBM: you just don't appear to be a part of it ;p

AntiSquid: you're part of the reason euler gets pinged so much

AntiSquid: latsrick

Default avatar.png JBM: just invite him to clash already

Default avatar.png JBM: you know he wants it

AntiSquid: it really isn't a clique when some of the regulars tend to go missing for weeks

AntiSquid: there was a clique back when i joined, it's gone :'(

Default avatar.png mamaluigie: who is euler

Default avatar.png mamaluigie: and why is he getting pinged

2berkir: I join clash of code and barely finish them, i hope you guys don't mind it.

Default avatar.png JBM: no we don't

Default avatar.png Caedan: Hey everyone, new guy here. Doing Thors conditions exercise

Default avatar.png Caedan: I can't seem to solve Easy Angle and Optimal Angle test cases

Default avatar.png Caedan: Problem is that initialx and initialy is not reflecting Thor's current position

Default avatar.png JBM: yeah

Default avatar.png JBM: it's not obvious from the statemet

Default avatar.png JBM: but it's part of "the problem"

Default avatar.png JBM: you've got to track them on your own

Default avatar.png Caedan: I have found that the problem statements in general are quite vague

Default avatar.png Caedan: How? shouldn't that be an input?

Astrobytes: It's a problem you have to solve

Astrobytes: anyways, goodnight CG people

Astrobytes: also Caedan, there are hints on the left side of the IDE for some easy puzzles if the format is confusing, otherwise check forum or keep asking in chat - people will help ;)

Default avatar.png JBM: there isn't much to generzlixe from cg statements

Default avatar.png JBM: they have very different authors

LastRick: night

LastRick: that time of night

AntiSquid: go sleep

LastRick: submit your code and take a nap, it'll be a while. the ol' white spinning wheel

Default avatar.png mamaluigie: god dam my test case has taken like 1 min to complete

Default avatar.png mamaluigie: is tehre a server issue or something

LastRick: yes

AntiSquid: oh that's what you meant

AntiSquid: ya it is fked up

LastRick: mamaluigie: ever since the contest (unrelated i imagine) it seems like the site grinds to a halt around this time every night

AntiSquid: site ranking recalc around this time

LastRick: our best guess is middle of night update in europe

LastRick: yeah what squid said

Default avatar.png JBM: we should measure that
