The Return of the 多読 Contest!
and a swift, painless death.
Yes, that’s right, we’re FINALLY back. Sorry it took so long but my medical problems made coding (or any sort of deep thought) near impossible. Rest assured, I wouldn’t make you guys wait that long for nothing!
I gave the bot the web app treatment! Previously the bot was just a script that got ran every minute but now its a full blown app. What does that mean for you guys? Three things
1)The app is fully automatic. Even if I feel terrible or die, the contest will continue running as scheduled without my intervention as long as hosting bills are paid.
2)Contestants are now able to submit updates via the website. This feature is mostly for those who had trouble with the command line-y twitter submission method. Now you can just head on over to the website and submit your updates without any confusion.
3)Graphs. I’ve been promising graphs since the first 2011 contest and the move over to rails (and not shit php) for the website makes that possible(read: easy).
A few of us from the irc.rizon.net #ajatt irc chat will be running a week-ish long contest just to give the app/bot a nice test before we resume our regularly scheduled contest in January(unless we’re all dead).
