FED UP with this slow and unresponsive discuss now !!

People are just bearing with this slow discuss which takes a minute to load a single page !!
Don't you think new discuss should be used now as it's chef's birthday this month ?
People keep saying that new discuss will come "soon"...

Also I haven't received laddus yet for my 1 year streak which was completed on november cookoff... It's been 4 months i.e 1/3rd year now and they just keep saying that they will credit it "soon"

I was wondering how long is "soon" when it comes to codechef ?

Last week codechef told me that they intend to give laddus by next week... now I also wonder how long is "chef's week" ?

Haha, can relate :D

I shared my problem idea in the initial days of Feb.

I assumed I'd get a reply for rejection/acceptance. I considered only 2 possibilities.

But I was wrong.

After waiting for 2 weeks I decided to write to codechef. After numerous emails, the last mail I received had "soon" in it.

I was very happy to know at least I'd receive rejection/acceptance email soon, instead of pending status. Right after, I made a few problems in case if that one doesn't get accepted.

However, after waiting for 10 days I didn't get any reply. I decided to write to codechef again. This time I sent one of my prepared problems which was better than the previous one. Still, I didn't receive any email.

The last email I received was 2 weeks ago which had "soon" in it.

I talked with a few members who shared their experiences. Then I realized, a few weeks is not a long time here. I'm still waiting for the opportunity :)

Honestly, I'm so fed up now, that I have stopped posting rants xD. I know that it's just all pointless now xD.

I can imagine that 10 years later, when I open up Codechef to see how things are going then, I'll be hit with nostalgia - "Ah! Codechef is just the same as always!" Tears of nostalgia roll down slowly.

And then you'd proceed to order a drone from goodies website only to realize that its out of stock? XD

(17 Mar, 03:02) vijju123 ♦♦5★

Does someone ever manage to cash in drone??

(17 Mar, 04:17) aryanc4036★

Maybe @vijju123 can... He has many laddus ;)

(17 Mar, 07:37) l_returns5★

@l_returns yes, maybe way too many ;)

(17 Mar, 09:59) akashbhalotia5★

Yes, you are right. He farmed too many laddus along with karma :P
Later he got bored playing with the drone. So, he asked @admin to stop awarding laddus to Top5 Contributors xD.

(17 Mar, 11:08) aryanc4036★

Yes I remember @aryanc403 true story XD

(17 Mar, 20:03) l_returns5★

@vijju123 so you're a farmer eh?

(17 Mar, 20:45) swetankmodi ♦♦6★

Yes. I farm respect in hearts of people <3

Well, if nothing else, they credited the laddoos for last 1+ month's college contests today!

Let's hope they credit the ones for their own contests soon as well :)

codechef is never going to rise to the standards of a good competitive coding site if they continue to lag in the related activities

Maybe being NON-PROFITABLE ORGANISATION has its own downside. Codechef should start being Profitable now, or else I don't think the response' condition is going to improve...!!!!
