Hey everyone :), how are you? I was reading a couple of CF blogs. And I was thinking how much is it awesome to have a great community in one place. and I wanted to know your opinion on how did codeforces community help you or affect you? is it inspiring , motivating ..etc? or even nothing ?

I solve CF problems every once in a while, but I never really interacted with the community itself, but I am looking forward to.

I hope you all are good and have great time ^^. Peace!

If you post a question you would most probably get a response, but you would also get lots of downvotes for unknown reasons (from my experience)

    One useful response in 1000x more valuable than 10 downvotes.

      Once a guy sent me a response to this blog via a private message. His response was very long, good and useful. I asked him why didn't he put it in a comment so everybody can benefit, he told me that he's afraid of downvotes.

      No wonder why Facebook chose not to make a dislike button.

The Codeforces community behaves in a mysterious way, specially with the votes.

I like people sharing links to papers or sharing new techniques, one example I have in mind is Palindromic Tress I learned it here.

It helps me by giving me a heck of negative contribution points.
