Recently I joined the team of Codeforces developers. Today I want to tell you about first major feature implemented by me.
Now in your social profile (http://codeforces.ru/settings/social) you can enter an organization you want to represent.
It can be university, college, school or any other organization. If you want to enter school, lyceum or gymnasium, please add a city to avoid any ambiguousness. For example: instead of PhTL #1 please enter Saratov, PhTL #1.
When you are filling the Organization field, please, use autocomplition and follow the tips. Or it will become a mess.
And we will have to clean it up with TRUNCATE TABLE.
It is possible that one organization can have different names. Especially it is true for universities. You should try to avoid too short names, because they can lead to ambiguousness. For example: SSU can stand for Saratov State Universiry, Samara State University or Syktyvkar State University.
But long names are not very good too. Can you imagine how it will look if tourist will decide to enter the full name of his university: Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics? : )
As it is with countries, you will be able to see rating of organiztion and rating of users inside particular organization.
With best regards, Ivan
