I was just wondering what could be the reason for such low frequency of division 1 contests lately. If i'm not overseeing anything, approximately 2 contests per month were held for the last 3 months -- and all this happening during the times when most people are spending a better part of their days staying at home, as well as most, if not all, onsite contests being cancelled.
A couple reasons that come up to my mind are:
- people not being motivated enough (payment not being adequate, perhaps?) to set some high quality problems? While I highly appreciate the fact that CodeForces has been free of charge throughout the years, I am pretty sure that most people would like to sponsor the contest preparations.
- general lack of problem ideas? please no
- something else?
I'd just like to hear your opinion on this matter.
Wishing you all the best!
