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


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)


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 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 (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 (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. -- (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)
