Wow, I haven't written a blog in a while haven't I? And as it appears, every single one of my blogs had something to do with either this website's flaws (i still want my marshall islands flag!) or humor. Well, this blog is not going to be either of those! Instead, what I'm going to talk about is...
WOW COOL EMPHASIS
Since this website has an awful lot of people that do lots of hard work for the community, we have to acknowledge them in one way or another!
Yes, we already had Codeforces 5th anniversary badge of honor, but what about those people that do hard work for the community, that didn't spend their money on the website whose community they are helping? Well, these badges are for those people!
The Employee Badge!
Given to the greatest of the greatest, this badge is given to every single person who can be considered to be a part of Codeforces team! They have such noticeable people such as MikeMirzayanov and... MikeMirzayanov!
To be honest I don't know if there are any other people in the Codeforces team, so maybe this badge can be scrapped, but I still think that it's a neat idea! Or you can also give to employees of some other programming websites such as maybe... e-maxx? Is he even alive?
The Problemsetter Badge!
Given to those who spent their time in front of monitors for days on end, this badge is given to those who have made breakthroughs in the art of problemsetting, those who have prepared statements on official Codeforces rounds or gyms!
Probably going to be the most popular one since... there are a lot of problemsetters on this website, around 500 maybe? But hey, isn't that a good thing? Thanks to those people, this website still hasn't died out yet!
The Community Badge!
Awarded to those who truly are the pinnacle of this website's community, those people who almost everyone knows, and most importantly, those who we should all thank for... just being on this website actually. Those are the people who don't belong in previous two categories, but are still just as crucial to this website's health as them.
Maybe this badge should be awarded to those people who have at least X contribution? Maybe 100 or 50? Since there're only ~260 people with 50 contribution or more. Or it could be given by a community vote!
I think that this will be a great addition to the website, since it could be used as an instrument to make our community stronger and people that do the hard work be noticed more easily.
Maybe the design could use some more work, but overall I see nothing bad happening with this feature added. Just please keep a circle. Because everything is better if it's SPHERICAL!!!
