Which all kind of Questions to ask in this Discuss Forum

I had just began my journey with this forum and I have few queries, which I want them to be answered.
Before posting this question I read all the FAQ thoroughly but couldn’t find my question on that section which prompted me to ask my question from you geeks.

  1. What are the questions that I can ask from this forum? (Obviously those questions will be related to some problem solving strategy and will be posted here if I can’t find solution elsewhere.) Should the questions be related only to the one that are on this website(practice and compete sections) or can I ask any relevant technical/programming questions/strategies which are not in this website?
  2. Can I post my code here for review as we do it in [codereview.stackexchange.com][1]
    [1]: http://codereview.stackexchange.com/
  3. How to set reminder for a particular competition? I see a section on right hand of the page titled with Set Reminder for the Contest, but when I try to click on that link, nothing happens or no action is performed.

Welcome to Codechef

point-3). Actually reminder button is not working now, but Codechef made to remind you about contest in advance via mail. I have used some time before. that time it was working. Now I think they have closed this because their server is not capable to handle as you know they got glitched in aug cook-off. Hope to activate again soon.

point-2). It will we better if you provide working link only for your solution because It looks nice and pretty small also…If any user is interested to see you code , will click on it will. If you post your code than your post will become very lengthy…or may your intension for asking may be , overhead to understand after seeing so large post. Please you some online editor like idone, pastebin,codepad etc. to provide link.

point -1). Sometimes before,I have read about what kind of question I can asked on this post. then I got…clearly mentioned that you can ask only question related only algorithm and data structure and little bit about time and space constraints provided by online judge .
Before asking any question please keep in mind all aspect of post and please clearly mention what do you want to know…avoid duplicate question …

that’s all If you want to ask anything more, please ask…you are most welcome…
but please keep in mind post something sensible***(you already done…very sensible way to ask keep on this)***

Happy Coding

@rcsldav2017 thanks for your reply, it was very useful. I will wait for codechef admin to activate the reminder button soon, as I don’t get email notification too often and because of this I have missed my July and August challenge!

Just keep these things in mind-

  • DO NOT ask anything which has already been discussed in the forum. First search a particular question before starting a dicussion.
  • DO NOT post anything related to the contest during a contest.

Apart from these,you pretty much can ask anything.

thanks to @prrateekk…to adding most important part…

@rcsldav2017 I sincerely appreciate your efforts and have voted for your comments. But my question was how to set the reminder for the contest? I was very well aware of event calendar in help menu, but I want a reminder like a notification or email to my account as due to my hectic schedule I tend to forget the things and miss my challenges. Even I don’t receive any emails before the contest begins. I finally have found one solution, I have downloaded an app called ‘Coding Calendar’, it gives me notification for all the contest across many competing coding websites. Thank you @rcsldav2017.

for setting a reminder just click on that button(If it is in working condition…)…that’s all
