Tune in at twitch.tv/the__tourist at around 22:30 MSK, 11 Jan 2022 to watch me solving SnarkNews Winter Series 2022 Round 1 live! First I will do the round competitively without much interaction, and I'll be up for discussing the problems on stream afterwards.

SnarkNews Winter/Summer Series (SNWS/SNSS) is organized by snarknews and consists of 5 rounds. Each round is a virtual 6-problem 80-minute contest open for 10 days. The series is open to all, but problem statements are in Russian only. On stream, I'll read the problem statements automatically translated to English.

To make the stream more fun and for easier understanding of what will be going on, you're welcome to do the round yourself beforehand! If you don't understand Russian, you can also compete using automatic translators. Alternatively, you may just read the problems without solving them. In any case, don't discuss the problems in Codeforces comments before the round window ends.

Tentative schedule of future streams:

I might be streaming at other times too, so be sure to follow me on Twitch to get instant notifications.

See you on stream!

Greatly enjoyed hanging in your first stream, looking forward to the next one!

Since there is no other blog dedicated to SNWS, I hope it's appropriate to ask here — are there extra steps to gain access to the Upsolving contest? R1 links to https://contest.yandex.ru/contest/34159/enter/ and explains that it might take several hours for a participant to get added to it, but it's been several days and I still get a "You are not allowed to view this contest" every time.

    Messaging snarknews directly in Telegram worked for me :)

    As it turns out, the upsolving contest mentioned in Jury Messages is obsolete, and we are supposed to submit solutions into the same contest for upsolving. (This wasn't working earlier, and was fixed at some point.)
