auto-notify of new contests?

auto-notify of new contests?

Postby RichardBuckalew » Sat Dec 17, 2011 3:54 pm

I participated in the Planet Wars challenge and had a blast. I didn't learn about this one until 3 days before the submission deadline, and so sadly I haven't been able to participate. Please implement an email auto-notification for when the next google ai challenge goes live so that people like me can enter!

That would be a great feature. In the meantime, I've set up a google alert for ai challenge, so I can see when the buzz starts up.

Agreed!

I discovered Ai-Challenge just after the previous contest. I followed the specification of this ant-challenge but lost track of it after a while. I've been very lucky to find out it was ON 2 weeks after the begining of the contest. I could have been way worse.
Please add a feature (like a newsletter or something)

Cheers!

The usual advice i would give is subscribe to the atom feed of the announcements forum. Thing is that I plan to phase out the phpbb forum and get something django based.

I usually post in reddit.com/r/programming about new contests, ycombinator also has quite a stir when this happens.

I suggest looking at github for new code, perhaps frequent the irc channel for news. We don't plan moving out of those anytime soon.

The homepage will also be updated when a new contest is up. So if a google alert tells you when that happens i guess it's a good way.

All great advice in general, if you want to keep up with things.

I still think a mailing list would solve this problem. Like a new one, for the sole purpose of letting people know the phases of the competitions.
So it would send out approx 7 emails each competition:
One for stating that the game has been chosen.
One for stating that the specifications are in release candidate.
One for stating that the beta has begun.
One for stating that the competition has started and the specifications are final.
One for stating that the final week is upon us.
One for stating that the final day is upon us.
One for stating that the final competition has finished and the final standings are available.

Is it that difficult to setup a mailing list? I've never done it, but my friends made it sound easy.
