IMO 2014 perfect score Alex Gunning will stream IMO 2018 solutions. Check this thread on Art of Problem Solving: https://artofproblemsolving.com/community/c6h1669224 for more info. Just wanted to share with CF community because you might be interested and more people watching this will give him more enthusiasm so this can happen again in the future.

PS: I'm in no way related to Alex Gunning

Is he a competitive programmer on CodeForces as well ? If so, what is his CF handle ?

    LMAO. No wonder you remain a lowly specialist after so long. Your logic is rubbish.

    1. Not everyone has time to do your lame and unrealistic contests. Not to mention he is a full time student at Trinity College, Cambridge — one of the best colleges for Mathematics. There is also no information on Google to suggest that he is interested in such stuff.

    2. Not every competitive programmer has a cf handle. I know quite a handful who dont. Maybe because cf has be tainted by people who ask stupid questions like "help me debug this?", "Is it rated?", etc.

      How could his logic be rubbish if he didn´t even make any statements?

        LOL. There is already an assumption in his text.

        If so, what is his cf handle?

        This question shows that he assumes every competitive programmer must have a CF handle.

          If you ask someone for something, you´re not implying that the answer will be different than: "i don´t have that something".

            Lol. I think your logic is flawed as well. Let's put it in another way, The question could be better phrased as "Does he have a cf account?" Get the idea?

              Better phrased, it could have been. But that does not imply he made a logical mistake.

                Lol. A mistake is a mistake. If you broke the law, you deserve to go to jail. No matter how you "should have behaved" in the first place.

        No. 2. This is a thread about IMO upsolving. It has nothing to do with CP. But this guy managed to bring CP into the picture. Isn't that flawed logic?

          maybe because it is on codeforces.com

            Lol. Although it is on codeforces, only relevant stuff should be discussed in the thread. E.g. we should't be asking for debugging help on CF 8 anniversary post. Get the idea?

              The relevancy of the question is in the eye of the beholder. Nevertheless, he made a question about competitive programming on a competitive programming website, so i think that´s pretty "on-topic" if you will.

                Lol. You got no sense of what is called relevance. Try posting some thread-irrelevant comments on stack overflow. May God bless your soul. I pray you don't get bashed by the professionals there.

                Hey, he doesn't really mean anything he says. He's just trying to get a reaction. :)

                He's apparently upset because I made an 'implication' I didn't even know I made. xD. I didn't really mean to imply all competitive programmers use CodeForces. I asked because we're on CodeForces. I guess he repeatedly read my statements till he found something to get offended by and make an issue.

                I didn't mean to upset him :)

                  Lol. You didn't even know you made an implication? Shame on you. You should be ashamed to call yourself a programmer because your logic is so poor.

Why it's showing 21 comments in this blog post but there are clearly less than 10 comments ?

    There is a collapsed thread attacking ghoshsai5000 for asking about CF handle. I have no idea why this sometimes happens, but if you wish to see it, you can view ghoshsai5000's comment in page inspector tool and remove "display: none" from the child comment thread style.
