Essam's blog

Hello I suggest adding a site notification when the contest start. It's simple and It will notify us about contests. We register and forget about the contest. So it will be a great value for us.

It's easier calculating start time than writing such blog. :D

    Its easier to forget the start time too than making a prompt notifying you that the contest started :)

      there are some app in play store (donno about ios :)) which will notify before contest. Or you can alarm 30 min before the contest like old fashion way. You can also check this out

If you keep the page open in the browser, any new notification will be shown at the icon of the tab (including when contest starts, or announcement in a contest). Or is that not enough?

Maybe you meant an email notification? There's already one such feature, even though it is not sent to notify you when the contest starts (only to let you know the contest exists). Email notification for the start of a contest is probably going overboard.

There is also the option of setting your own reminder in your own device.

    It would be more helpful if there's builtin notification system in codeforces
