Hey everyone,

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!

This might not be the most appropriate place to ask, but does anybody have any information about IPSC 2018? Last year's edition was in early July.

Hi everyone! I apologize for writing a topic that is not oriented towards everyone, just towards IOI participants, but I really don't know any other place to ask the question.

Are there people interested in playing ([Avalon](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Resistance_(game)) in days of our stay in Tehran? I find this game really interesting, and it's a nice way to have fun during the stay in Iran. If there is anyone interested, please comment of DM me.

Best of luck in the incoming IOI :)

Does anyone know someone to contact about the FBHC T-Shirts, because mine still didn't arrive. (Round 2 was finished in January or so) Thanks in advance.

Could some of you which have participated in Google Hash Code 2017 be kind enough to share some of your ideas/solutions to the problem?

UPD: Fixed P.S. CodeChef September Cook-Off is starting for 4 hours, so this can also be used as a reminder for somebody. :)
