Isn't all the code open to the public? I remember seeing a reddit link to the github site months ago. I clicked the link, saw that the actual contest hadn't started yet, and made a mental note to keep my eyes open for the actual start. If I'd been motivated, I could have downloaded the code, volunteered, or done any number of other things, as you could have too.

I guess what I'm saying is that the only thing separating the people with a headstart is motivation. There is no unfair advantage. If you want a headstart, I suggest setting up a google alert for aichallenge and watching appropriate news sources for word of next year's contest.

As already said in this very thread, I'm not so concerned about my final ranking, but I can understand that others are... Maybe a way to at least give proper credit to people who started later and still did good would be to have two ranking pages: one - as it is now - with all the bots. This would be the official ranking.. A second (auxiliary) ranking could be provided with only the bot whose first submission happened after the beta period.

This way people who joined after the beta could still have a taste for how well they did in a level environment (and take the due pride in scoring at the top of this ranking), but being the official ranking the other one, the beta tester that - for as much advantage they might have - made this entire competition possible through they work wouldn't be penalised.

What do the contest organisers think about this?

Botz iz Botz.

Having several strong bots to play against early gives you a great measure of progress.
