Why there is no new contest upcoming on code forces?? It just felt kind of weird that there is no new contest coming. When will there be a new contest ?? Any ideas

I guess Codeforces might have decided to reduce contest frequency starting this year. Also, it's understandably difficult to set high quality problems, so maybe contest frequency would reduce but then problem quality should go up.

    possibly but i hope that same frequency and same quality can be provided as before

I do feel, after the proposing contest opportunity for master+ starting from new year, this decreased number of proposals thus, decreasing number of contests. Though, I am not sure.

    So, how was it earlier? Could CMs or experts propose contests ?

    I think these changes are yet to have their effects given the long queue before.

Please post some contests. Even Div 3 would be fine, I'll participate unofficially. It's. bothering me a lot, I keep visiting cf every hour to check if there is a contest listed yet. (T_T)

    Actually you can Virtual Participate some contests. It is convenient and you can participate in them any time when you are bored or free. I don't think you can finish all the history contests in a short time.

      Yeah but virtual contests can't replicate a live contest. Got your point tho.

    Even Div. 4 would be fine--literally anything. I'm also checking daily and REALLY want a new contest.

Maybe because of approaching codejam and ICPC? Just a wild guess..

So that people would appreciate the work put by the writers, writers & testers put so many efforts into codeforces rounds and yet sometimes people do not appreciate the work that they do, and they start complaining about how bad the contest was.

I am so grateful for the writers and testers for working really hard to give us something unique.

I am so grateful for codeforces (Mike and his team) for the experience they provide us.

I am so grateful for the community and the family of codeforces.

Thank you all :)

Stay healthy :)
