Hi Codeforces,

I see the next Div.1 round takes place on March 30th, 16:35 (UTC). I will be on flight to the World Finals at that time, and I believe some of World Finalists would be in the same situation (WF starts on March 31st).

I think it would be better if the round takes place one day earlier. I rarely see Div.1 rounds in March (the most recent was held at "unusual" time, the one before was unrated). I would like this luxurious opportunity to enjoy and train :)

Please tell me what you think.

Div 1 rounds are not very frequent nowadays. Obviously everyone should be able to take part in this round. Timings should be changed. Best of luck for the Finals

    Wow that is just amazing. A red guy got upvotes and me being a green guy got downvotes. Didn't you morons realize that I was also saying the same thing as the writer of this blog. Codeforces is a great site but its users are not that great. That's why I don't care about the contribution anymore. Cowards!!!

      What exactly is cowardly about downvoting you?

      Also, while color undeniably plays a role in how well your comment is received, I must say it's not like your comment really contributed anything. You just said things that have already been said.

          Fostering a sense of community and friendship using jokes about polaks competing getting drunk. Your "Best of luck for the Finals" at the end seems like you're trying too hard to make your post as PR-friendly (upvote-worthy) as possible and complaining about votes certainly doesn't help.

            If that "best of luck for the Finals" at the end would have been written by tourist would you still think that he is trying to make it upvote worthy

              Yes. If you can't prove otherwise, stop trying these stupid catch-questions.

Frankly, you should focus on WF. On the other hand, there will be some finalists who will travel to Portugal earlier and they will complain. You cannot please everyone.

We have the same issue.

I guess moving the round one day earlier might make some other issues for authors or other World Finals contestants.

Moving the round one day later is another option, as in the World Finals schedule the first program is Sunday dinner which will be at 18-20 PM, and the contest starts at 16:35 in Porto timezone, so it fits in the schedule perfectly.

This is not that important but some part of the contest clashes with codechef's lunchtime also.

^^One more reason to prepone the contest.

UPD: They changed the timings of the round.

A contest without WF participants sounds like a rating boost=)

    You know how ratings work right? Without the WF participants your rank will improve but it doesn't affect your rating.
