Hello Codeforces!

At the end of August, I (and my friend) proposed Div 2 contest and don't get the review for now. In general, it's okay. We understand that this not maybe so fast and 3+ month delay it's normal, but it's not really clear when it will happen.

I tried to ask MikeMirzayanov and after that KAN. And they gave us some information about the situation with proposals queue. (Thanks to them indeed. Cool when the organisers respond in person)

I think it would be cool If contest authors have the possibility to view approximate position in the proposals queue and to estimate the approximate time of receipt their review. And today I want to ask the Codeforces community about the need to introduce such a feature, and the Codeforces organisers about the possibility of implementing something similar.

And I certainly want to thank Codeforces for the opportunity to participate in the preparation of the round (as an author or a tester) and all coordinators for their hard work!
