From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code. --Michael Mol 04:54, 27 February 2010 (UTC)


Hi Arm, and welcome. Some tasks require certain output not just to be computed and have the fact that such is computed part of the program, they also require that output to appear in the languages section of the task page. Some people can find it a little difficult at first to work out what is being asked for, but it seems you have been able to work it out. Great! And welcome again to RC - we need good contributors. --Paddy3118 15:56, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

P.S. It seems you're not so new to RC. Excuse those parts of the para. above. --Paddy3118 16:07, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Yo Paddy! I've just seen this. Not yet very used to how wiki communities work yet. I missed that the output of the code was lacking, but when I saw the big red box template complaining about the _number of digits_ lacking, I was like "wtf, they _are_ there along with the first 20 and last 20" so I got all pissy, thought you weren't checking them right or something. It's good that it's all clear now :D -- Arm 13:25, 16/08/2011 (GMT-3)

P.P.S: we're trying to improve the template that prints the big red box here. --Paddy3118 17:36, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
