Hi!

I'm honored to invite you to Codeforces Round #383, it will be held on 6nd December 14:35 UTC. There will be 5 problems for each division as usual. The contest was prepared by AmirReza Arpa PoorAkhavan and Mehrdad Sa1378 Saberi. It's our first official contest at CodeForces.

The contest stories will be about Arpa and Mehrdad and some events happen with them in Arpa's land, in addition you will get some information about Arpa's land and girls living there (Owf (t = 1)).

I'd like to thank myself (:P) and Mehrdad at first, then Nikolay KAN Kalinin for helping me in preparing problems and Mike MikeMirzayanov Mirzayanov for the great Codeforces and Polygon platforms.

The scoring distribution will be announced later.

Answer for one of your common questions : -Yes, It is rated.

UPD. GL & HF. Hope you came up with Dokhtar-kosh solutions for our Dokhtar-kosh problems.

Urgent information from MikeMirzayanov: due to hardware issues, the round is moved to Tuesday 6th December, 14:35 UTC. We are very sorry this happened. More information is available in this post.

UPD. Scoring distribution: Div.1 : 500-1000-1250-2000-2500, Div.2 : 500-1000-1500-2000-2250.

      Well, there are some cool coincidences, like:

      1. They are both candidate master
      2. They are both are first-time Codeforces round writers
      3. They are both have handle start and end with "A", and four letters

      So, I hope increase of rating will also become coincidence :P

            Listen, I'm not Muslim, so don't ask me for proof. I've talked with many Muslims and all of them has agreed with that. So they suggested me to take Islam and Allah would forgive me.

            And if you want proof whether Allah has indeed said it or not, ask Mohammad (the Islam prophet). If you can't do that then just die and meet him directly.

            ps: don't mind if you didn't mean to ask for a source, I can't understand whether you asked me or told me to do something.

              I stated something that's good practice when making an argument for or against... well, anything.

              You can research it yourself (Quran and some texts around it); a lot of people have. I'm intentionally being vague in order to not hint at what you'll find (and to have fun).

            And now I remember, my friend once told me that at his last speech Mohammad said that all Muslims are brothers. (though He also told not to enforce other races to take Islam). So I think you can take Mohammad as the "source".

    There is only one God.The most fundamental teaching of Islam is to believe in the Oneness of God, in the sense of His being the only Creator, Preserver, Nourisher, etc. But this belief is not enough. Many of the idolaters knew and believed that only the Supreme God could do all this and yet they associated other gods with Him. Therefore, one must acknowledge the fact that it is God alone who deserves to be worshipped, and thus abstain from worshipping any other thing or being. Likewise, Muslims believe that God has no father or mother, no son or daughter. None is equal to Him. He is God of all humankind, not of a special tribe or race.

              I assume you're an intelligent human being. You don't need dogmas, you are SMART, you have the possibility to be free, but instead choose to live imprisoned in ancient beliefs.

              If you had been born in India, you would believe in something else. If you had been born in Greece 3 thousands years ago you'd believe something different.

              I deeply believe every human being has the capacity to think for himself, don't waste this!

              Through history, humans have invented multiple religions, and there are tons of them RIGHT NOW. There's absolutely no reason to believe one is more real than the other.

              I'm very sorry you were born in such a harsh environment, with such strict views of the world, but I'm sure light will be shed on you eventually.

              Have a good day!

      These comments are relevant according to your blog. If you didn't write that irrelevant sentence at the start people would not ask for explanations. This is Codeforces, not an advertising site of spreading what you believe.

          Cool for me too! As it is a community we can expect other's views and beliefs on different subjects, that's why Codeforces get festive mode in religious occasions. But, Author himself can not take these discussions easily, also some people here are crying as their feeling is getting hurt. And some would declare war for hurting their feelings.

          I believe you are dumb ass. because

          click here

          did you get hurt? see? sometimes it is not that simple. Totally irrelevant but just showed you an example how it can be more than personal.

          And no, It is annoying, read above comments. Some mis-beliefs can lead you to hate others. In worst case I think there will be a war soon.

          finally I didn't mind but sorry if author did.

        After a long delay (4 weeks), I'm here to say : It was my mistake, I want Codeforces community to excuse me.

        That sentence (In the name of God) was, and currently is, one of my beliefs, but now I know that I shouldn't write my religious beliefs in Codeforces.

Issues issues and more issues. Last time with the copied problems thing, I thought of posting a comment regarding the issues that have taken place with CF in the last 3 months.(8+ issues).

However, I shall not post any disrespectful comments as anybody at Codeforces is not answerable to us, but this rising number of issues is very difficult to deal with to say the least.

                As I said, Mehrdad has many girlfriends, some of them are new (less than one year in a relationship) and some of them are old (more than one year in a relationship). And you are right, that Hos (The_Hos_Returns) is his loyal and official girlfriend.
