_One_Last_Try's blog

By _One_Last_Try, history, 17 months ago, In English

Hey,

I know I am pupil and I am not the right person to write this kind of blog. But, I will still try. Is there a way we can make the CP popular. Don't get me wrong, it is already popular but I am talking about, it is not popular enough to attract sponsor or have a onsite competition held around it ( cough cough GCJ). This blog is not an attempt to highlight this harsh fact, but to open a discussion on how we can make it popular. It will definitely cannot match the popularity of 1000 dinosaur vs 1000 chicken stimulator streams (and the like). However, there exists other mind sports like chess which we can take inspiration from.

Any thoughts?

So we had round 810 today and it was not a BAU as one of the problems was copied. What made it even more worse is that one of the author accepted the fact that he deliberately copied it. For this reason, they have face wrath of the community in terms of abusive comments and downvote...

Well first of all, the author who had no knowledge of the situation should not be made the part of this wrath. It was not his mistake as such his blog should not be downvoted and actually shame on the people who are celebrating that he has reached the lowest contribution ( You are just celebrating other misery for the mistake he was not directly involved in).

Secondly, for the author who made the blunder has accepted his fault publicly. I am not saying we should not condemn him for what he did but I think this community is a bit too harsh. Yes, it might have wasted 2 hours of your life but that's it. Nothing else.
