Has Ace/KoBE flushed the stats for Challenge portal?

Please explain what you mean? There have been no stats loaded.

I can't see any stats currently populated in the challenge portal.

What stats should there be? I thought you wanted to load previous stats from the old site before we launched the new system.

Yeah....I tried to mean the small amount of stats which were generated from testing of challenge portal by Team Reboot mmbers. That is not needed any more. As discussed on the TLF thread, allow me to find one/two days to convert the dump to this new format. We'll load it thereafter.

Ok Reboot, we are just about finished! Just a few things to make sure are ironed out and we can roll out the initial release!

To keep track of the existing issues, I'll be using http://mybbtechchall....ethz.ch/issues from today onwards. Request you to do the same. It'll make issue tracking a lot easier than forum pages.

I saw on the challenge platform the challenge "Realistic Web Challenge" with an "Try your luck" box. Well, even I do not know the answer, it is not an "get the flag" challenge type, so imho probably it shouldn't be there.

I know. That's why I've already logged Issue#2, #3, #4 here.

Please log all your feature requests & pending issues at issue tracker so that it becomes easier for KoBE & later for me to keep track of the TO-DOs in future.

I will repost what has been posted on TLF:

(I hope Peter won't mind me quoting him. He mentioned this on Tech.Reboot.Pro)

Maybe the solution template can be enhanced to not only check for the final result, but also for correct steps on the way to the result.

Today I tried to solve one challenge.

After a while I found a result and wrote it into the template. I got the friendly "Try again".

But this result was correct on the way to the final result. It was needed in the second step.
The second step also brought a result "try again".
Currently I'm trying to solve the third step.

IMHO the standard user does not continue with a "Try again" as input for the next step.

Maybe here the portal tells him "You are on the way, but you do not have the final solution yet"

Peter


Hmm, I think that would be interesting to have, but the one problem I see with that, is that there may be more than one road to solving a problem, and any non-tracked methods that show up as "wrong" may discourage that user from following that path, even if they are on the road to solving it. So that's one issue I can see with that.

HOWEVER, this did give me another thought:

To have each challenge display the method on HOW to solve the challenge for users that have successfully completed he challenge. That way they can follow along and see if they did it the way that the uploader has provided as a method of solving the challenge, and it may give them further knowledge in any event on how the challenge works. It's a learning process for me. I take these challenges not as challenges, but as something new to learn. I never ever took them as a competition. Just something to improve my personal knowledge as I think that is my greatest hobby in my continuation to learn about computers and always has been ever since I was 8 or 9 years old. 20 years later now, and still trying to learn more.

Maybe these revealed "methods" or "how to solve the challenge step by step" place, which is revealed for every user that solves the challenge can hold more than one method? And can be modified by someone to add more methods on how to solve the challenge even after the challenge is submitted?

(Note: Piling more work on top of this invention for him to work on lol. Sorry KoBE.)

I've been useless for this project so I don't expect anything new to be added, he's only one person, but if I can help, I will. Just need to learn how he has it set up still. Only thing preventing me from doing that though is because of how far he's gotten without my help lol :)

Thanks Ace. Posting on a single thread will ease the task of consolidate the issues & requests.

If you want to join the development of the Challenge portal, that will be a great pleasure. After Feb 12, I'm also going to contribute as much as I can.

The issue tracker has been updated with fixed issues. So please check that regularly.

Sorry, for the speed at which I can work.. I have just started school back up and have a 20 credits on top of having to work as well. :

I appreciate everyone's time with suggestions and bugs being found. I will continue to knock them out as fast as I can.

And Ace: You are more than welcome to jump on board... I have tried to comment everything to help follow the flow of the application..

As far as I am concerned, I'm getting mail notification for every issu you are solving or changing its status.

No question of being sorry. You are doing a marvelous job for the community. Even in professional environment also, I doubt how many professional would have addressed issues so quickly. Go ahead in a pace which you find suitable.
