Hello codeforces community,

As the new year is coming, We will soon be able to change our handle to a new one.

Can you change your handle to some used handle ?

For instance, if I want to change my handle to freezing, and the user has been inactive for 2 years, can I not somehow claim the handle ?

Thanks.

UPD: You can refer to this blog, thanks NothingXD for helping out.

Hello Codeforces community,

I am currently in my last year of high school, still undecided on what i would like to do in university.

I wonder, is CP (Competitive Programming) fun to most of you ?

Originally, i decided to keep doing CP in university and pursue ICPC, I didn't even aim for World Finals, just a guy trying to get better in what he does. But lately, I have been experiencing stress from doing CP, specifically, I managed to get a medal in my country's National Olympiad, and is currently going through the selection process to IOI, and from this selection, I felt stressed to do CP, though i still enjoyed doing casual CF and Atcoder rounds, I found myself in a position where I don't feel like doing CP anymore.

Will ICPC be a painful process ? Or is it a fun grind to most of you ?

Thanks.

UPD: Thank you for the responses, it has definitely given me some insight on what to do next.
