I am not going to comment on whatever you are saying is true or not. I would only request you to be selective about the words you choose. A university does not necessarily be bad if only one lecturer is bad. However, it would certainly be bad if most of the teachers are bad, or if one bad teacher takes most of the courses.

I had a good relation with the contestants of AIUB. And I believe we had respect for each other. I still see it that way. Please do not start a war, I don't want to be in either side of it.

Good luck with your studies, and the contests.

Mr. Ronty_BD , please be careful in posting messages in this board. It is an international board and I think we should all be careful in not doing anything that damages the image of our country.

be modest....

Post by Shahid »

yup, i am strognly agreed with tomal bhai and mbakht...............

Ronty_bd, plz remember this board is not a board to post objection against any person whether it is true or false. It is a programming discussion board, and we should not off track much. Secondly as mbakth said, this is an international site, so u need not to explore the local issues which is not necessary at all. Thirdly, the mode of ur posting is harsh and rude. U should avoid this.

:oops: :oops:
i am a sufferer who even didn't know how to submit problems.
and how to implement judges' answer.
i needed a page about the information and discussion about the problems.
that is why i welcome any solution page with 10-15 solution.
and i like those pages that discusses common mistakes in source code.
just like NUS pages.
i always welcome u..

Dear Programmers,

I think, now a days, ACM programming is the most authentic work, So the people involed here, should be modest, polite and wise enough...about what they say or what they do. It dosen't cost anything but may pay you more ...! So, I agree with Tomal's requests for Ronty.


My request goes to Moderator of this page also. To review these topics and take appropriate actions.

As far i know there is no cold war in between NSU & AIUB.
(Like NDC or DC)
So, I dont know wt Mr. ronty want to mean................
I completely agree with tomal bhai....
No one have the rights to say against a versity if just a single faculty
is wrong(still we dont know is it true or false). I think u know the concept
of a university. Its a universal thing. SO, dont try to make u a legend
stupid by making such kind of comment.

Nobody can learn programming without studing solutions of other programmers.
Every book and course that teach the art of programming show algorithms written by someone else. This is the only way.
I think solutions should be accessible by everyone.

There is a difference between solutions to problems from here or standard problem solutions available in text books. The standard solutions are examples how similar problems can be solved. Since there are enough solutions to standard problems available, there is no need to publish solutions from problems of this problemset archive. And if solutions of this problemset are available, there would be some cheaters who send the solution without thinking about it how it works.

ok, but I think this is their problem, not mine. Only the one who wrote the solution for the first time should be proude aboute it. I think this is not a reason to hide the solutions.

I agree with Adrian, without any qusetions. Only a few things can be learnt from other's code but if you wish to be a expert programmer must work with your own head and logic.

So, In our website : ACMSOLVER.ORG we have STOPPED publishing any type of solutions from the problems of UVA or any Judge systems. It is harmful to publish solutions and it also violates the "ACM Code of Conduct" . (Please use search engines to learn more about it!)

I also think, that there is a big difference between solution from textbook and solution of concrete problem. So I also think, that solutions, which could be used by cheaters, should be removed from any site where it exists.

One additional thing: I always want to check others words and I go to this page (acmsolver.org). I noticed one very bad thing: this site contains WORM or VIRUS (my Scanner tell me that !!!). I think, that people which are managed this site should take care to this problem ....
