Hello, Codeforces community and admins.

Almost everyone reading this probably already knows ifttt.com, I'll try to give an introduction to what it is, and how it can help us if Codeforces decides to create a service in IFTTT.

IFTTT stand for If this then that. This and that are respectively a trigger and an action. Informally, if something occurs, then do something...

Using IFTTT, you can create applets like "If tomorrow will be rainy, then text me that".

Why not creating a service for Codeforces when we can create applets like...

  • If system testing is finished, then send me a message in telegram and tell me my results. (See this comment :D)
  • If someone has hacked my solution during the contest, then notify me
  • If new regular round is scheduled, then notify me
  • If I have a new CF message from tourist, then ...
  • If my rating changes...
  • If I have logged into my account...
  • If TooDifficuIt becomes the new champion :D
  • If a new GYM contest is added...
  • If a contest will start in 30 minutes...
  • If... comment your ideas :-)

As you know, the action part can be highly customized to user preference, we can choose between so many ways how to get notified or what to ask IFTTT when some of the above happens.

What do you think? :-)
