Dear friends, you might have noticed that the VK logo has disappeared from the Codeforces pages and all of a sudden the place got sort of empty and a little bit gloomy. By the way, it happened not because the VK company lost the interest towards Codeforces and programming contests. Not at all. On the countrary, we have great plans to carry out together! We are infinitely grateful to the VK company for the 4 years of help and support.

We are glad to inform you that now a wonderful company called Telegram is going to help Codeforces. The company is founded by Pavel Durov and it united many brilliant developers with a rich olympic past. It is pleasant and important for us to see Codeforces helped by the people who understand programming contests, love them and value the skills of the community members. The Codeforces team is happy to get the opportunity to continue working and promises to continue dazzling you with contests, innovations and improvements.

Mike Mirzayanov and the Codeforces team

    I'm here for ~2 year and I don't remember any VK cups after my registration (despite that I know that there were some contests like that in past), so I guess this is not a big change :P.

      I wouldn't mind getting the results of system testing by Telegram. It's much better than constantly update the page and load the server, IMHO.

I think it's better to place telegram logo after or instead of "Telegram" in "Sponsored by Telegram" , or change Telegram color to blue!

Pavel Durov was the one who founded VK, no?

When the "sponsored by" slogan is of VK, there's actually a link of VK's site on it, so the link on the slogan differs from the one on the logo of Codeforces. But now there is only one link of Codeforces.com on both of them.

    They don't; they rely on a donation from Paul Durov. You can look at the official site here.
