After the last round (Codeforces Round #645 (Div. 2)), the trouble with problems' statements became quite obvious: many people liked the problem themselves, but legends do not. Some people even started talking about incorrect use of coronavirus theme in the statements, you can read this post.
It's quite a shame that the announcement and editoral get downvotes because of the legends, because making the legend is the most minor part of the problems, much more effort is spent on generating tests, inventing the problem itself, checking the solutions, writing tutorials, etc..
There are people who want to read only formal statements, and there are those who like to read legends. Unfortunately, the first ones are much more numerous, and some of them rate rounds not by problems, but by negative emotions caused during the contest, and in this case the legend.
It is often difficult to write a formal statements in a place with a legend, the participant is not obvious where to read what is important and what is not. But I think it's wrong to remove creativity on such an excellent platform as Codeforces. That's why I'd like to suggest this: the possibility to write a separate statements with a legend, a separate formal statements. That is, separate "tabs" in the problem with only formal statements, and the statements of which are now the majority on Codeforces.
This does not mean that the authors will have to invent a legend, the main thing is to write a formal statements for the participants. In this case, the legend's tab just contains a formal statements.
With this innovation, it will be better for everyone — the participants read the statements they want, and the authors are happy that the round is not free of creativity and the round is evaluated by the problems themselves.
I understand that this is likely to be difficult to implement, especially from the point of view of Polygon, but this update will be better for everyone. What do you think about it?
