It's unfortunate that today's round went unrated but I wanted to take a moment to tell you how beautiful it was.
This is the kind of contest I love. Yes, red coders will say a contest should have x, y and z. But let me tell you what makes a contest great for average Joe like me:
- Short and clear problem statements.
- Easy to understand examples.
- Gradual increase in difficulty. (B and C should not be light years apart in difficulty)
- Strong pre-tests.
- No insane implementations.
Your problems had every single quality and I was enjoying a contest after a very long time.
It's a shame it was not rated, but please come back again with more such rounds. We love you and wholeheartedly thank you for your efforts.
If there's anything I can do, please let me know.
