I feel that 1600 rating barrier to become expert is way too less to be called an "Expert". Hell, its just 100 rating points more than the default rating, and with the increase in div 3 contests, its just become too easy to cross the 1600 barrier. This is due to the fact that specialists are competing with noobies and pupils and its just very easy to gain rating against them and become expert.

So what i feel is that expert rating barrier should be increased to 1700 and div 3 should be continued to be rated for people below 1600,to stop the inflation of "experts" on this site. This a topic that needs to be addressed so MikeMirzayanov please consider this.

The ideal scenario is — 1400-1699 specialist; 1700-1899 expert; 1900-2099 CM and so on.....

Agreed.

In the last Div. 3 contest (Codeforces Round #582 (Div. 3)), when you got AC on 6 problems, you can have plus 155 (see __Sakura__ ), what that means, you only need to got AC on all problems with difficulty under *1600, and another problem with difficulty *2000 within 2 hours. And if you got AC on all problems, you can got plus 248 (see RNG.AmazingJ ), which means you only need to solve all problems under *2000 and an additional problem with *2400, that is at most all Div. 2 D and a Div.2 E

Firstly, there is no any definition for "expert". Secondly, why care about it so much?

Do you really want to change expert/specialists etc to "sucks", "sucks even more", "can't write a proper hello world" "still sucks but a bit less"?

    Yep. Coders who do that should commit sudoku.

Thank you for expressing your opinion.

What if you just pay more attention to the actual rating and disregard the names? Way back, military names were used instead (http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/126). Now, would you consider yourself a "Liutenant" of code? Probably no. These names bare no practical meaning.

who cares what you are called? Being called legendary newbie does not make one's rating go higher than 1200.
