Hey everyone, I hope you are doing good. I was thinking of starting a mashup contest series in which I will be creating a mashup contest every day at some time (which we all can choose) and that contest will have 4 questions (1 div2B (1500), 2 div2C's (1600) and 1 div2D(1700)) and 2 hours to attempt those. Right after the contest we can discuss the solutions and do that every single day (except when an official contest is there). I feel that this way we can get more practise and having a group who want to practise similar things will keep us motivated. Let me know what do you guys think about this.
PS: This is targeted for beginners (cyans who wanna be blue). Everyone is welcome for this tho.
Based on the response I will start creating contests from today onwards. Thanks
UPD: So looks like I am not allowed to create a mashup contest. I was able to create a mashup right before this announcement. Can someone tell me why this is happening? Hoping they dont take my right to create a blog post too. But anyway I will be posting vjudge links for those problems until mashups dont get fixed.
Thanks to abdstar for creating the contests on mashups on my behalf since I did not have access (or if it was taken)

Hello, I received suggestions from a few people to make a discord group since they wont be checking this blog that often so I have created a discord server where we can discuss a suitable time for mashup and discuss our solutions after the mashup. Join Here
