Last year, Codeforces had also given us the opportunity to change our handles before the last contest. Would that be possible this time too ? :)

    It looks like you are wrong, it wasn't before the last contest; check this — usually we have this opportunity at the beginning of the year, but not before the last contest.

    So you have to wait few more days:)

I love how the round was made div 1 + div 2 because users wanted it. I don't think any other site would have done the same.

      I think he meant that he is impressed by the fact that the admins actually heard the users' opinion and decided to follow it. Something that is quite rare :P

A Pre-Contest problem: Whom does the combined division format favor the most (rating-wise)?

    Easy: just look at the past few combined division contests (Good Bye 2013, Bayan 2014 Warm Up, ...).

    If Div1 users don't perform worse than expected, they seem to be favored rating-wise.

    They must be bottom Div 1 contestants. Solving A,B,C problems quickly is enough to get a good place in division combined contests.

    Do not wish the impossible!

    If you are laughing, it means some other people crying. It's the rule of universe.

      Even if you wish something which is possible, it doesn't mean it will happen definitely. So let's wish for things which are impossible. It looks like you don't understand meaning of wish.

      P.S. People these days upvote anything which a red guy says.

        And i think that ikbal is right. I can't understand reasons for saying such meaningless things like "i wish everyone have highest rating", "i wish everyone win" and so on. Why don't you say things which make sense instead — stuff like "i wish everyone learn something new in this contest"? Or nobody is interested in improving his level, but only in increasing his rating? :)

        P.S. You may just ask MikeMirzayanov to multiply all ratings by 10, then everyone will have highest rating :D

          It was time that worse had negative rating, so his rating would be down.

        This is the hundreds times I saw things like "You get upvotes because you are red/yellow" or "You get downvotes because you are blue/green/gray". Seriously, you must stop the thinking that people are just a bunch of idiots worshipping any reds. We reds do have lots of downvote for commenting something stupid / rude / thoughtless. The only reason I can see why red users generally have high contribution is that, they generally have good critical thinking and thus have some good points when commenting on topics.

        On this, "people wish for impossible things" is your own opinion. Not everyone have to be day dreamer like that. Rational people can wish for things that has low probability (but not impossible). So I don't see anything wrong with ikbal comment.

Today I've got so many down vote.Around 50.. Largest in my codeforces life:( I was shocked!! But I have refreshed myself thinking that Nobody is perfect all the time and can make mistake any time. This is natural process. Waiting for a good time. Everybody should learn from feedback. May Allah(swt) help me to get back.

    Considering the rating changes in mixed division contests, that is actually possible (however unlikely).
