When you got stuck on a question, the editorial comes to be very helpful, isn't it. But the frustration comes when you didn't got the logic even through the editorial and decides to check in comments and the comment section is full of memes and all other stuff.

Honestly, I always kept enjoying memes, But there must be a way so that we can sort comments. Like we can put tag on each comment whether it is about problem A problem D or even a humorous meme, after that its easy to sort them on basis of Question number or number of upvotes.

These are my suggestions and I hope that MikeMirzayanov would look into it.

I agree, it seems pretty logical to sort the comments/threads using the problem tags, we can volunteer to make such changes if that's feasible.

I think that's a great idea! Hope admin sees this.

Usually in the tutorial blogs there is no meme.

Except supahotfire, no one should be allowed to post memes.

At times to look for explanation to a particular problem Ctrl+F with "E "/" E " for a problem doesn't help due to DIV1/DIV2 rounds. Adding a feature to tag the particular comment with a predefined placeholder can solve the problem.

I support you, I was also frustrated by this problem. Hope there will be a solution soon

In educational and div3 rounds, the editorials are released at least 12hrs after the contest ends. Meanwhile we the contestants discuss the problems under the announcement. Sometimes a very good approach is described in the comments. But they are just lost. Ex: When someone gives a virtual contest, he/she won't look at announcement comments. Even if he/she does look at announcement, but he/she has to look through 100s comments.

So, my solution to this is post a blank editorial or an editorial without code just after the contest. Because of this all the discussion will hopefully be done under the editorial page.

    Alternatively, why not just post the editorial immediately? Solutions are now public and solution ideas are publicly discussed in those 12 hours; why the delay in the editorial posting?

      If the editorials are posted immediately, that would be great.

It would be also usefull to have something like "Top comments" wich orders the comments by upvotes.

The only problem with tags is people spamming, and adding lots of tags their comment and then this feature will become useless. It would be nice to allow the community to choose those tags. This way, this feature will work great. Just some time to a comment get its correct tags and it is done!

    I think "Top Comments" idea is nice and can be implemented along with tags, This even solved the second problem because then spammed comments are on bottom of the list. Also, I had putted tags in this post Likewise whoever commented, should put a tag himself, because it's way more harder to put a tag on every comment through community.
