Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 42418. Divisible by 16

perhaps less interesting but I guess you could do the same with powers of 5, iff the last X digits of a number are divisible by 5^x, then the entire number is divisible by 5^x...

@James: nice trick! (and I guess the proof arises from 10^x being always exactly divisible by 2^x, so "iff" also applies?)

Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 42405. Divisible by 3

I understand the java restriction, but the rest seem a bit heavy handed. Also the large number of similar problems might encourage solvers to build a general "divisible by n" routine instead

This problem is being rescored now. Please do not submit any new solutions while this problem is rescoring. I will update with a new message here once the process is done and it is again safe to submit new solutions. Thanks!

Thanks for catching that! I modified the testsuite to fix this but will not rescore this solution (I am trying my testsuite to *only* pass solutions that will get a zero score in Cody as well; it is a bit hard to do that without being too heavy handed and/or interfering with the ways solvers might get that zero score)

Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 1774. Free passes for everyone!

Freepass functionality has not been working for the past few weeks due to a change in the underlying Cody machinery. The fix to get freepasses working again is very simple but I am hesitant whether I should take this change in Cody machinery as a sign from above and let this problem quietly expire. If you believe freepasses are useful please let me know in the comments, and if you believe they interfere too much with the normal Cody balance and I should let this functionality expire please let me know as well. Other thoughts/suggestions are also welcome (I could implement a maximum number of freepasses per user per week, for example, if that would help avoid abuses)

Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 2033. poll: would you like the regexp (?@cmd) functionality to be banned in Cody?

This problem is also working correctly again after a few-weeks glitch. Rescored the last few votes to get those right.

Alfonso Nieto-Castanon submitted a Comment to Problem 1192. Say something funny

This problem has not been giving the correct scores for a few weeks now but it is working again. You might have been led to believe that you phrases were funnier than they _really_ were if you have submitted in the last few weeks. Rescoring now to fix that :)

note: as a side effect of the glitch solutions submitted between May and June 2015 had been incorrectly scored so please disregard those

Sorry for the discontinuity. This problem is working again (changes in Cody were interfering with our old way of assigning not-size-based scores to solutions). Let me know if you still run into any issues.

Just an update, the "Test reference solution" button issue has been fixed now and they are working on some of the other issues (thanks Cody team!)
