    I think I know but I am not sure, maybe let's get a different question.

    Question for you: Who asked?

        I understand your personal reasons, I just do not want to say them out loud. I have my personal reasons too, don't you see?

          I don't understand your personal reasons and I do not want to know about them. I have my personal opinions, don't you see?

        I was not trying to be funny, it was the irritation that led me to comment here

Thanks for telling us (div2 participants) in the automated email to "get ready to raise your rating at lightning speed". However, the contest is not even rated for div2 :)

Hi

One genuine question (at least for me): Why are you (problem setters and admins) scheduling Starters only for Div 3+4? If you're not having problems of that level, postpone the contest(just like you postponed Cook-off twice) or reduce the number of problems to 5-6. We wait so long for the contests, and you either make it unrated for Div2 or cancel the contest that no one wants.

Thanks

    I would say that whenever I have the harder problems (last 2-3 problems), I always go for div2 round (remaining problems are relatively easy to find). So not having div3 will not increase the frequency of div2 rounds as such. In the past few months we have been to conduct div2 rounds every week. But now due to some issues like problem reviewing halt for 2 months, we are not able to arrange good hard problems currently. Problem reviewing has started again and we might be again able to hold div2 contests at a decent frequency some time later.

      Please stop doing this :
      days before the contest : STARTERS 58 (RATED FOR DIV 2 & 3 & 4).
      and in the last day : STARTERS 58 (RATED FOR DIV 3 & 4).
      sorry but it looks scammy.
      I think days before you should be able to know if it's a div2 of a div3.
      Thank you for your efforts, and remember I am not talking here about you or your work.

        Hi, sorry I didn't knew about this earlier. Escalating this issue.

        I think we could just mention starters xyz instead of mentioning the rated divisions before it gets fixed
