How do I choose contest for practice: go to Gym, set difficulty to 4+ and duration to 5h, look through the list. In some of the contests I already participated, it is clearly visible in the list.

Problem: On the top there are other contests I don't want, I have to skip them every time and this list is growing. Why would I not want given contest? Maybe I participated on a different platform, or maybe difficulty is not right for me, or maybe I want to leave it for later team training.

Obviously, CF cannot detect any of these issues. But maybe we can have button "don't show this contest for me", just like Fav button? MikeMirzayanov

Another (less useful for me, but maybe more useful for community) possible feature is to allow users with coach mode to change difficulty settings. C'mon, low red get total in 4h, how is this a 4 star.

Changing difficulty (or maybe something smarter, rating it/checking how easy the contest is for participants) would be great.

    Automatic things can backfire: in the contest I mentioned V--o_o--V solved only 10 problems. Anyone can see that his last AC was on 58th minute (saying a lot about actual difficulty), so probably he just dropped the contest. But it will be hard to correctly detect automatically.

Cannot Agree more. Having a single "don't show this contest for me" flag would be an enormous help.

Another desired feature is to have a quality rating for contests. It can be frustrating sometimes to waste 5 hours on low-quality contests (e.g. badly written statements, unoriginal ideas, ..).

Also maybe we can use voting instead of setting. So if 2 users with coach mode disagree on something they don't keep playing Tom and Jerry. Maybe a good idea is to let users with coach mode rate the contest's quality, contest's difficulty, .., and then the average rating is displayed.
