Stub[edit]

I put the stub message on this page because I thought it was incomplete and needed some work, but... Decumanus (Talk) (-Template:Stu not a stub). I guess he/she thought that since there were already a number of paragraphs here, it wasn't a stub. Is it ok for me to put the stub message on the page again?

Cleanup due to quality standards[edit]

I don't think this article adheres to the quality standards imposed/expected by Wikipedia. I am going to put {Cleanup} until then...

I'm fairly new to Wikipedia editing - but I made some effort to clean up this article (added section breaks, some more info on the varying types of competition, and some organization). Hopefully it helps. -jmzero

Codejam[edit]

I'm removing codejam from tournaments because google has deployed their own system for codejam. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MahasonaLK (talkcontribs) 18:46, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Criticisms[edit]

Needs a criticisms section to have any appearance of objectivity.

I guess it would be easier to add one if it wasn't for the fact it is incredibly difficult to find objective criticism about topcoder. In fact, I think that just putting a criticism section in this case would be the opposite of being objective. The most I could find was a slashdot article about crowdsourcing in which some slashdot kids complained about it. Then we have http://amplicate.com/hate/topcoder in which some guys are venting frustration after losing or complaining about technical issues during contests in which they participated, but 9 opinions out of thousands active coders seems too small... If you wish to have an objective criticism section, a good start would be to begin by giving us a pointer to it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.103.71.220 (talk) 23:36, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Python in Algorithm Matches[edit]

TopCoder does not support Python in Algorithm Matches. Python is supported in Marathon Matches, and in the Google Code Jams of the past. Will someone change that, or am I missing something? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 119.30.38.36 (talk) 12:32, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

No you are not missing anything. In Algorithm Matches Python is not available as an option for coding. It is availble in Marathon Matches, thus I am removing it from the Algorithms section. --62.241.151.161 (talk) 16:46, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Now, Topcoder allows Python in all matches. I've just tested it. --Etrebil (talk) 00:22, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
