Greetings to all belarusians who actively, or not so actively, participate in this amazing community we have on Codeforces.

I would like to ensure that we have your support to initiate changing the flag of Belarus on this website to the historical white-red-white flag, since the current official flag of Belarus has become strongly associated with crimes against humanity, with the brutality, torture, ferocity and human rights abuses which have, sadly, become commonplace in the past few months in our beautiful country.

Outside of public forums, in closed community member chats there is a consensus on the fact that belarusians should have the ability to perform under a different flag by either letting them individually choose which flag they prefer or by changing the existing flag to the one suggested above.

Some platforms have already gone through with similar changes, for example one of the largest russian-language sport website sports.ru or a very popular chess website chess.com.

But no such change has a right to be performed without wide support from the people who will be affected by it.

This is why I'm asking every belarusian to express their opinion on the topic in the comment section of this post.

Hello to everyone!

It’s not the first time I’ve noticed comments such as this one:

However everything remains as it is. There is no visible reaction to such problems. Perhaps the administration has no time to read all the comments. But in that case there should be a place in which everyone would be able to throw off reports about bugs. Unfortunately there is not such a place.

At least three people suffered from this problem at the last codeforces round:

I hope someone from administration will notice this post.

Hello everyone!

27 May, 12:35 MSK new codeforces round takes place for participants from the second division. Participants from the first division can participate out of competition. Round consists from 5 problems, and you will be given 2 hours to solve them. Pay attention on round start time.

The problems will be almost the same as on Open Olympiad of Mozyr State Pedagogical University, which takes part parallel to the round. The full problem set would be in codeforces gym soon. I am also going to tell you about the Olympiad a bit later.

  • The problemsetters are: me (Vladislav Vishnevski), Valery Kameko (Valerich) and Yury Shilyaev (hloya_ygrt).
  • The testers are: Alex Kernozhitsky (gepardo), Arseniy Kolosov (KArs) and Ilya Klimko (klinchuh).
  • The coordinator of the round was Alexey Vistyazh (netman).
  • Alex Dryapko was reading the statements (sdryapko).
  • And of course, the round would be impossible without Mike Mirzayanov (MikeMirzayanov), author of polygon and codeforces systems.

Thanks everyone for contribution you did to the setting of the round.

The main character of the round is Vladik, who loves to solve problems and himself.

Good luck to everyone! :)
