I think i am no where near your level. And giving contest with you will be an honor. But i only see you as my master(btw i am from your college). Sensei can you please give me guidance on how to be a good coder like you. Anything from you will suffice(related to coding obviously).

-a fellow coder(trying to improve) Thanks in advance orz

    No you can't give only the coders between 1400 and 1700 are allowed, you are way above my level so i guess i won't benefit you sir ayush mishra orz.

        Deadly critic i can't talk to you or anyone because codeforces is saying that you have exceeded your daily limit of talking, so can you please dm me your num number so that i can add you to the group. And to others also i can't msj you so dm me i will surely reply you back but it may take some time

Yes...It would be great. I am interested too. But what if we include the other online judges such as Atcoder, Topcoder, Codechef, etc. When there is a contest on either of these judges...We will discuss that. Otherwise, we can try any virtual contest. I hope you will like this idea.

      How can you not add more people? Just ask for someone with coach rights (I could do it) to create a codeforces group and everyone can join it!

        Sir tfg it is very nice to socho joined us he has created group and we gave 2 contest there, by saying not add more people means that all group members(watsaap) are saying that adding more members will just make chaos we are already 15.

You don't "give" contests. You take part in them.

    I'm not Indian, but it's common with them, and apparently they use it that way due to the equivalent in Hindi:

      I'm aware of this. Every common mistake has some explanation, e.g. people confuse "they're" and "their" because it sounds similar. It doesn't mean they shouldn't learn the correct version.

        Is it really a "mistake" vs simply speaking another dialect of English?

        That's like saying "lift" vs "elevator" or "patronize" vs "patronise" is a mistake, I think.

        (I'm not really an expert on "give" vs "take" an exam, just my guess based on what I've seen -- it seems like "give an exam" is the standard way to say it in some regions, rather than a mistake.)

          Good question. I think this is called calque (this one is calque from Hindi) and it's very easy to understand for speakers from the same country, but sounds strange (or stupid) for other countries/speakers. Instead, you compared it with words that are different in two countries that both just speak English, I think.

          I stand ground that "to give an exam" sounds strange/stupid because it's the professor who gives an exam, or contest organizers who give you a contest, not the other way around.

          You have a point that it matters what is understandable. I guess we must accept the fact that people use the phrase "more optimal" or "most optimal", even though "optimal" means best already. But this is something everybody in the world uses, not just one country.

          Btw. it happens that a person from Poland says "thanks from the mountain" because this is direct translation of our "thanks in advance" ( "z góry dziękuję" ). It's much more stupid :)

          Is it really a "mistake" vs simply speaking another dialect of English?

          Of course it is. When you're talking to a wide international community, like here, it's a mistake to use English that's significantly different from what's internationally known. When you only say it to someone who naturally understands, then nobody cares.jpg, but that's not the case here. Btw this isn't a dialect.

          It's especially important here, when the meaning is completely changed. To "give a contest" can be much more easily understood as preparing a contest for someone else, it even makes sense in the context of this title — but it's completely off. Words have meanings. Stick to them.

          Or, if you'd like, we can say that's not a mistake and I'll "give" you $100,000.

            Its how changing a simple world may change the meaning, so today's lesson is to understand what we say and be careful about such things. Also who did expected such comments in this blog?

                  Like 1-2 minutes per hour when I'm not busy, it's very low-effort and not time consuming. Replying is a bit time consuming.
