CodeChef introduces a brand new discussion forum

1 min read

In our recent annual recap, we talked about what a huge year this has been for us. Not only did we embark on a number of short projects like workshops and summer camps, but we also successfully completed our 5th SnackDown contest. All-in-all it’s been a busy year for us, full of twists and turns but the ride isn’t over yet!

Every year, during our birthday month, we try to bring our community one big launch or feature that you’ve all been craving, and we can proudly announce that the Birthday present you’re all getting this year is a brand spanking new discussion forum! Everyone say hello and welcome to the new CodeChef discussion forum.

While our existing forum has served us well, we knew it was too slow to keep up with our growing community. So this year, we finally made the call to retire old faithful and move on to a newer and faster Discourse-based forum. Our new and improved forum will have a clean, new look and will boast a number of improvements. You’ll now get convenient single line conversations (with the option to expand replies), informative link previews, and a mobile-friendly format. CC Discourse will be a seamless extension of your CodeChef account which means you’ll have the same username.

Over the years each of our team members, as well as our 1 million strong community, had thousands of conversations on discuss and we certainly couldn’t wipe all those stories away. All your treasured conversations will be imported to the new forum. So what are some of the changes you’ll find? Let’s start with a difficult one: unfortunately, we can no longer accommodate karma points. Our new forum does not support this feature, so we took the call to scrap it in favour of many other benefits.

You’ll also notice that posts on the new forum cannot be upvoted or downvoted. However that doesn’t mean that you can’t show your appreciation for a great post, you can always use the like buttons. The new forum will also have Single Sign-On, which means that your CodeChef account will be used to sign you into the forum. You do not need to create a separate profile or account to use this forum. This is only limited to authentication. After getting user authentication from the CodeChef website, the session is independently maintained on the new forum.

CodeChef was designed and created to help programmers acquire the tools to improve their own skills and abilities. Discussion and debate are a huge component of learning and our aim has always been to provide a platform that lets you do just that. Whether you’re in Russia or Rajasthan, China or Chile, you can always visit the CodeChef discussion to have your own doubts clarified, to post a solution, or to connect with other programmers on the platform.

Now let’s take this discussion over to our new forum!

As always, if you face any issues feel free to send a description of the problem you’re facing, to bugs@codechef.com.
