Maybe we should remove AQT from the authors list.

• Ninjaclasher  commented on Aug. 21, 2018, 5:41 p.m.

But that means if there are any bad problems, we'll be forced to blame you instead of AQT. D:

Well, that's why there won't be any bad problems C:

Looking for a teammate. I'm not eligible for prizes.

• imaxblue  commented on Aug. 15, 2018, 10:45 a.m.

CLARIFICATION: In order for a team to be eligible for prizes, all members of the team must still be enrolled in high school or a lower level of education(middle school, etc).

The reason they only distribute prizes for the live contest is to PREVENT CHEATING

• Rimuru  commented on Aug. 16, 2018, 6:42 p.m. edited

Don't think so. Only those participating in the live version are, iirc.

Edit: Confirmed. The live contest will be the only version which will distribute prizes, as it is within a specified 3-hour time range. This is to prevent people from making alternate accounts to view and solve all of the problems, then submitting on a main. We highly encourage that you come to the live contest for prize eligibility.

Also, if you stumble upon a good question it's probably imaxblue's if it's like, "tf is this", it's most likely AQT's :3

Will this contest be hosted on DMOJ? If so, will non high school students be allowed to participate (not for prizes)?

• imaxblue  commented on Aug. 14, 2018, 6:47 a.m.

There will be an online mirror for those who wish to participate and are unable to go to the live event.
