If we were to organize a programming contest - along the lines of waterloo's CCC... would you participate?

Vote on the poll and leave some comments. We want to know how many people we should expect, and how to organize it.

I'd like to comment on:

should we charge anything?
if so how?

what kind of prizes would you guys like?
can CompSci.ca afford those?

what kind of problems to have as a part of contest?

etc.

For prizes I'd have to go with Bits. I am really new to Turing so probably will just submit some pixel graphics. Speaking of which I think that there should be seperate categories.

i dont think you should charge anything, because theres some of us out here that dont have jobs yet... and it should just be for fun... but with prizes of bits of course Wink ..but if people didnt enjoy programming they shouldnt really participate...

Maybe you should also have divisons for grade groups. Some grades don't really have the knowledge of people in higher grades. But of course, we just have the hope that all the members will be honest about their age.

I don't think age is really a factor.... but yes, it should be fair, there are grade 10's and 11's who are smarter, and better at programming then the grade 12's, perhaps it should be based on compsci mark?

what you should realize is that right now about 10 people would participate total...

i only have 13 people in my class... ten should be cool.. but i think there should be 2 divisions, its still a contest... and there's no way some of the people would have a chance... like me..

true... cuz if we put everybody in one group, we might as well give the prize to Catalyst right now Wink

what about you? Wink

i think the more important question is what about me. let's face it, if this contest has a question that asks you to create a game good enough to get two students (not including the programmer) addicted, then i've got this thing in the bag.

PostPosted: Sat Apr 26, 2003 8:20 pm   Post subject: You could do it in 1 category!

Just have 3 sections.

Easy


Medium


Hard

Award like 50 bits 2 the winner of easy, 100 2 the winner of medium, and 200 to the winner of hard.

So if someone is really good, they much rather get 200 then get the mear 50 bits. That way every skill level will get a chance to get bits and will have to strive to get more bits.

Interesting sujestion. But who do you think should determine in which category the program belongs? Do judges group it with others or do users chouse in which category to submit it?

The coder of the program should decide.

The person makin the program decides.

If he wan't more bits he won't put his 3d engine, raycasting stuff in easy cause you only get 50 bits. He would try hard!
