Hello, Codeforces! Were you afraid of the lack of contests? We also!

Unfortunately, due to technical problems, the round is declared unrated. You can continue to solve problems, but the results of the current round will not affect your rating. We are sorry for this situation.

<almost-copy-pasted-part>

Hello! Codeforces Round #697 (Div. 3) will start at Jan/25/2021 18:00 (Moscow time). You will be offered 7 problems with expected difficulties to compose an interesting competition for participants with ratings up to 1600. However, all of you who wish to take part and have a rating 1600 or higher, can register for the round unofficially. The round will be hosted by rules of educational rounds (extended ICPC). Thus, during the round, solutions will be judged on preliminary tests, and after the round it will be a 12-hour phase of open hacks. I tried to make strong tests — just like you will be upset if many solutions fail after the contest is over.

You will be given 7 problems and 2 hours to solve them.

Note that the penalty for the wrong submission in this round (and the following Div. 3 rounds) is 10 minutes.

Remember that only the trusted participants of the third division will be included in the official standings table. As it is written by link, this is a compulsory measure for combating unsporting behavior. To qualify as trusted participants of the third division, you must:

  • take part in at least two rated rounds (and solve at least one problem in each of them),
  • do not have a point of 1900 or higher in the rating.

Regardless of whether you are a trusted participant of the third division or not, if your rating is less than 1600, then the round will be rated for you.

The problems for this round were invented by MikeMirzayanov and prepared by me Supermagzzz and Stepavly

Thanks to MikeMirzayanov for platforms and coordination of our work. Thanks to darkkcyan, Tzak, bfs.07, songsinger, iankury, spookywooky, Programmer, sodafago, infinitepro for help in round preparation and testing the round.

Good luck!

      Thanks for your reply!

      Since I am less likely to give CP contests in the following few months, it would be nice for me to contribute to the CP community by becoming a tester for Div. 3 contests.

      I would want to become a Div. 3 contest tester in the future — if Stepavly and Supermagzzz would want me to provide feedback for your contests, please give me a call!

As a tester, I recommend participants to open https://codeforces.com/contest/<contest-id>/problems rather than opening each problem page, during the contest.

Reduces clutter and server load (ig).

      We often get stressed during or even before the contests, which leads to frustration. Keeping that in mind and not to forget the constant delays today i would like to appologise to absolutely nobody, do what u can , the king does what he wants.

        Your frustration results in you calling this platform a "whore"? And you're no king. Just a sad pussy behind a keyboard. Don't shit where you eat. If you can't respect the platform then leave. Everybody here is "frustrated" but nobody is using these stupid insults like you.

They're gonna keep delaying the contest until some people unregister because of frustration :D. Don't blame them though, this is a historical milestone.

Is Codeforces aiming for some sort of participation record with these delays? Should have stopped registration on time.
