Please note that the majority of my questions are aimed at “ACM-ICPC Practice round 2014”.
I stumbled upon this website a few days ago, and immediately fell in love with the atmosphere, and really looked forward to competing and practicing and meeting the members! I checked out the compete tab first and saw there were a few competitions starting in the next couple days. Very exciting!
So two days ago, I return to the site to see the contest that was supposed to start in a day or so, is now in the past contest section. Why was it in the past contests if it hadn’t even started yet?
Now today, I check again to see the same contest is now in the “present contests” site. But it hasn’t started yet! It’s start date is: “2014-12-13 21:00:00” which unless I’m reading it wrong, that means it starts at 9PM EST today. So, shouldn’t it be under future contests?
Sorry about my confusion, I promise I’m not trying to put down the website at all. In fact, I’m asking these questions because I would really like to start coding and learning on this site.
Also, why is it so hard to get back to the homepage once you go to discuss.codechef?
