MikeMirzayanov's blog

By MikeMirzayanov, history, 7 months ago, In English

Hello, Codeforces.

It's scary to think about it: there are already almost 1800 rounds in the list of past contests!

I started adding a filter to the table with these rounds. Right now, you can already filter by some of the types of rounds. Here's what I've supported:

  • Div. 1
  • Div. 2
  • Div. 3
  • Div. 4
  • Div. 1 + Div. 2
  • Educational Rounds
  • CodeTON Rounds
  • Globals
  • Kotlin Rounds
  • VK Cup Rounds
  • Long Rounds
  • April Fools

Of course, I might have forgotten some types of contests. Please remind me if I missed anything. We should pay attention only to types where we have conducted several contests of that type.

I plan to expand this filter by adding more settings. Perhaps it would be good to filter by the condition "has at least one submission in this contest" (or those for which no submissions at all). What do you think?

What else would you suggest adding?

P.S. Here is how it looks on the website (some intermediate version, some options may be missing).

I think you can use filters like tags and number of accepted problems .

Maybe teams preferred?

But there hasn't been too much of those rounds recently :/ Would like more of them even if they're unrated.

Maybe can make it a checkbox instead of dropdown so that you can view a few categories at once (e.g. globals + div.1)

    I'll replace it with a multi-select control, but I'm not 100% sure it will improve things. You see, in 99% of cases, you only want to choose a single option, but usually, multi-selects require additional clicks when compared to a typical select.

Perhaps it is possible to create an option to filter by time and filter together with the type.

It will be good if there is a filter like "no submission in this contest"!

    Yes, I wrote in the post (probably it was not clear) that I want to implement it.

Thanks this is helpful!

Could we add "sort by" to it ? by time, by number of participations, and or, if the user has completed it.

For example — I want to see the most recent contest that I have not completed at the top.

    I agree with you. Number of contestants, AC submissions and FSTs during contests would be helpful when it comes to choosing which to practice/virtual participate in.

Great feature! Though, I suppose that a label like "All" or "Any" would work better than "it doesn't matter".

    Probably, but in the future, it will be more fields and not for all of them All/Any is suitable, but "it doesn't matter" is more generic and can be used with almost any search field.

    Consider the search field "Has submissions", options like "it doesn't matter/yes/no" look better than "all/yes/no".

      Because it is a Rank that should be between Pupil and Specialist and An Apprentice has completed enough basic training to apply their skills in the real world, with some help and At this level, you're comfortable with some basic techniques and looking to further extend your skills.

            I dont see the need since lower pupil and upper pupil are basically same in level , like you can argue why IM rank exists ? well idk I guess it is because people stuck around Master so hard , they need some motivation :D

              So similarly people who stuck around 1000 — 1199 they also need motivation. Because u also know the people stuck in between 1000-1199 range are very huge in number and hence need some motivation So I want 1000-1199 with Pupil Rank and 1200-1399 with Apprentice Rank

    You can go to https://codeforces.com/contests/writer/username for all contests where username was a problemsetter. For example https://codeforces.com/contests/writer/tourist

    Is this what you wanted, or did I understand you incorrectly?

      This is pretty cool, as well as https://codeforces.com/contests/with/username , I think there should be more prominent links to these on the contest page, as I did not know about them until I saw them mentioned in comments.

Currently 'Right sidebar filters' style UI is used in all major pages:

  • Gym filter
  • Problemset filter
  • Submission filter

There are filters like 'friends only' but they are small and don't need a whole sidebar thing. But you say you plan to expand the list, so why not make it into the sidebar instead of creating a new very different element? This would increase the user-friendliness and consistency of CF :)

    Thank you, you are mostly right. But there is one nuance. In all the cases above on the page, only one table is shown, while here the filter is applied to the second one. If we move the filter to the sidebar, intuitively, it will be loosely related to the second table. In the case of a large number of upcoming contests in the future, this filter will even be quite far from the past ones. On the other hand, fixing it next to the second table also feels strange: it disrupts the vertical rhythm in the sidebar, which wasn't done before and would be odd in general.

    However, most likely, I will try rewriting this filter in the sidebar and just see which option works better. It's probably not a big deal if the filter and the table end up slightly separated from each other.

      Thank you for considering! I think the title "Past contests filter" is enough to not cause confusions. Also another suggestions: hiding the upcoming contests when filter is applied, though I think this isn't a good idea.

Feature request: In the group's member list, the page loads much more slowly if the number of participants is large enough. That's why it's hard to accept the new requests.

So, It will be good to have one new request tab for managers and pagination on members page as well. i.e., 200 per page.

It's great, making it easier to filter contests when you want to VP some contests of certain difficulty.

My suggestion: could the filters by the nationalities of problem authors also be added? As we all know, Chinese rounds are sometimes much harder and have different problem styles :).

For me, in status (of Problemset) defaultly shows everyone. I think its more reasonable to show my as default and then remove if we need to see everyone.

If I hadn't seen this post it's possible that I would've never found the filter button. Perhaps move it to the right side like the problem set filter? I think the contest filter is currently very easy to miss. But thank you for adding this!

Also, how about adding an option in the problem set to show problems of only a certain contest type?

If we could filter contests in which we have'nt attempted any question yet, it would be a bit more convenient when giving virtual contests imo.

Thanks! One minor suggestion: it might make sense to label the "ICPC" option as "ICPC Scoring" or similar. I selected this option looking for past ICPC rounds (mirrors of SWERC, NERC, etc) and was confused for a moment about why educational rounds and Div. 3s showed up.

It seems to me that the filters do not work quite correctly when there is little time left before the start of any contest, because after using it, we are redirected to the page only with a round that will start soon.
