    Hey all,

    I'm starting up a web site where I host friendly programming competitions between other programmers and myself on a regular basis. I already have the first problem and competition up and going. If you like solving programming problems in your free time like myself, come join in on the fun.

    Here's my site: http://rhiever.110mb.com/

    The competition is under the 'Beat My Code' section.

    Hope to see ya there! :)

    Awesome! If you have any questions or want to discuss the problem, I have a forum attached to my web site as well.

    @shabbir
    How would I go about starting the competition here? Also, what would that entail? :)

    In querry we can'nt put very long like competition. Please I am crazy to solve the problems in c/c++/algorithm design. Can you start a new thread as well as different section which will be monthly basis competition.

    Sure, I have couple of suggestions and if anybody else anything else we can work that out as well.

    1. Have a new section for competition and contest like where we add new competitions and contest section like C-C++ and go for posting each of them.
    2. We can have a generalized forum for competition under the General section where anybody can create a thread and start a competition.

    Comment.

    A generalized competition forum would probably be best, imho.

    Both ideas are excellent. But Quiz competition should have some really tough or medium problem If it will be easy then same as querry and disscusion section.
    Make sure that problem should putted in comptetion should be tough or medium like Np hard problem , any puzzle in c/c++ which is really required some tick and thinking.

    One thing more when user post his quiz then moderator should give it to a difficulty level like
    1. Low
    2. Medium
    3. Difficulty

    This is just idea I mean that just give some level.
