Hey Everyone,

Hope you all doing well, as we all know Codeforces is one of the best sites on the internet. I would like to suggest some features if codeforces can add then codeforces would become way better.

  • Hide Tags but show problem difficulty/rating option.
  • A rated/unrated registration policy. [I have seen this feature on atcoder.jp]
  • A streak ranking leaderboard (shows the coders having highest streak). [I have seen this feature on kenkooo.com]
  • An official dark theme.
  • Score distribution for gym/mashups contests, same as we see in a Div2/Div1/Global rounds.

These are just my personal suggestions. What additional feature would you suggest?

I don't know if this is possible or not, but even spacing between two contests would be quite good

An in-page submission text-area (like in AtCoder) would be helpful, if the ping goes high.
Also, filter standings by country / institution would also be nice.

For your first issue, this script might help.

Also, another feature to show start time in very large and bold letters while registering

And rating system for the problem quality.

    agree!

    along with this is:

    • feature to up/down vote problems/contests

    • come up with metric for "popular", probably inspired by metric for contribution

    • feature to sort/filter problem-set by popularity

  • feature to download a test case/set. This allows for easier local debugging and reduces the number of submissions on the server.

  • allow high rated users modify problem tags https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/104115

  • display more statistics for submissions, examples 1, 2

    Regarding first bullet:

    It was mentioned a number of times and the administration denied. To be honest, I do not remember the reasons. One of them is probably the following: hiding long tests makes it more difficult to steal ready problems — one should write his own generator, validator and so on.

    Regarding second bullet:

    Grandmasters already have ability to do it. However, it works only with recent problems. I think it's correct behaviour, it simplifies monitoring tags (suppose a bad high rated user removes all the tags from all the problems. How do you want to recover the system?)

    I think the first feature is more or less useless. I don't see a way where having an array of 1e5 ints will be helpful. I think a better way to approach this is by making stress test scripts.

A feature in virtual contest which will show your ranking(official & unofficial both) without taking any other virtual contestant submission into account.

I think Codeforces can make the members in a group able to talk to each other publicly in the group. And also add some more interesting (that is, it uses some basic algorithms but give a interesting way to think of the solution) problems in the contest.
