    Ooops, extremely sorry ygf. Can you take my name off the entrants list. I've had some meetings come up at short notice, and there's no way I'm gonna hit the deadline. Maybe next time.

    k...delete, and done.

    btw, anyone:
    i'm looking for an ideal amount of 7 contestants and 3 judges. you aren't obligated to submit anything if you sign up. (of course, you wouldn't win...)

    and of course, more contestants are nice

    to cicero:
    i got your entry. it compiles fine. (i can't offer more advice than that.) but you should change your search option, it's causing seg. faults on my computer.

    What's up with everyone? Why doesn't anyone sign up? This is kinda sad, no-one wants to do it... I suck, but I guess I'll give it a shot. Those of you who think they are too good for this, why don't you do it and have fun putting me down? And for those who think they are bad, well, you are not alone, I'm willing to bet I'm worse.

    I'll give it a shot just so that there will be an entry you guys can have a good laugh at, how about that
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    Ah what the hell, sign me up :/
    I just suffered a HD crash, but I still have this old computer to code on. I'll try my best to make it pure C, but don't blame me if some C++ conventions slip in here and there

    Edit:: Oh shoot, wisdom teeth go byebye on thursday... hopefully that doesn't affect me too much.

    I thought that declaring and initilizing was OK... I know it compiles just fine, but is that cause of a C++ compiler, or cause it's not THAT wrong (like void main )?

    i think that kind of behavior is not standard on c compilers. some conform to the c99 standard which makes the syntax a little more flexible, sorta like c++. but rest assured, if you mistakenly put something like that in there, it won't count for much against you.

    Also, see this by Prelude:

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    hehe... i thought it was... guess it's not
    though i will bet my first-born that that kind of statement isn't allowed in a for loop

    Lucky for your first-born that you're correct. In C89 declaring variables in the initialization part of a for loop isn't allowed, but C99 does add this feature.

    Contest? I want to be in. But it's Thursday night and and that means 3 days. I'll try to pay more attention to the boards next time, then...Besides, I always fail horribly at writing standardized code

    to all contestants and quasi-contestants (that means you sebastiani ):
    you all know when the deadline is. but to make it simple:
    if you submit something, you are a contestant
    if you do not submit something, you are not a contestant
    irregardless of whether i added your name to the list. that's merely for recordkeeping purposes...

    now, to judges:
    sometime within a day or two after the deadline i will send each of you the code, zipped up into seperate files for each contestant. since there is no secret board around here (besides the mod one), i'll send it via e-mail to all of you. that means i need your addresses. (i can't use the vBulletin features to do it because that only submits text to your e-mail address.)
    upon receiving the zip files you will unzip and poke, prod, compile, scramble, etc. the contestant's code until you are sure of what scores they deserve. make your scores conform to a 5 point scale, 1 being the worst, according to each category i have listen. if you have other comments and/or other criteria, feel free to add them. after all is said and done, i will average the scores together and attempt to pronounce the winner's name.
    i will start a new thread, which i hope someone will make sticky. i'll post the judicial comments first, and the winner, and basicly why s/he won. then i'll post all the code in no particular order. then the general public is free to make comments, spurn, openly defy, or just plain shut up about the results.
