Less games for all bots. Is it problem on server?

Code won't compile? Found a bug? Post here!

I haven't had a fully updated ranking since Saturday due to how my stat resets on uploads interlaced with server slowless. :oops:

They've got the EC2 pricing system where they only take servers if they're below a certain price. So sometimes there's no server space available at that price and we get no games played. So yes, the issue is cost.

If cost is the issue, the organizers should create a PayPal account and accept contributions from the community. I would give 10 bucks.

I love the idea behind this contest, but the execution and the organizing have not been great so far.

i would also donate to keep the servers running if that's the case... i sure hope organizers still have motivation to keep this fun challenge going.

You'd think Google could provide a server or something. Isn't that the sort of thing sponsors are supposed to do?

Having only 1 slow server isn't really working, particularly with stat resets... But the employees on Google who participate should notice (I'd hope).

As for Google branding the contest, I still think it's an advantage in that it attracts participants. I know I would've been less likely to check out a "University of Waterloo AI Challenge" than "Google AI Challenge". On the other hand, attracting a number of participants that you don't have enough servers to support is not an advantage.

Edit: I'd donate as well if there was such an option (not that I'm very wealthy as a student...)

+1 to donate but i think that google must provide some resources... they're more than 3k people participating thinking that this was a serious contest

Google's name on the front page definitely attracted a lot of people. It's a good thing.

FAQ seems to indicate that Google is not helping UW with operating costs. If any Google employee is reading this, /hint ;-)

Probably, nothing short of nuclear option will move them.
So, OK here IS the nuclear option:
