sus's blog

I have set a reminder on my cloud (meaning if I get a new device I will still receive the reminder) to comment on this blog in 5 years, then 10 years. Doing so will bring it back up in recent actions and in turn create a time capsule of sorts. This means that the rankings for the top 30 rated and contributors will be different and we can compare the two. Unfortunately, this wasn't done in the past for CF during the early days 11-10 years ago and most of the information from that time period is just legend. I hope that this will bring some sort of reaction out of your future selves and prompt you to think back on the past. Comment something below so you too can be a part of this experience and cf history.

(also congrats Radewoosh for recently achieving top 1 on the site, something I heard you aimed to do from years ago)

Recently there has been a lot of arguments about if the correct term for a codeforces task should be called a "question" or "problem" This link talks about it in-depth as to why this is problematic and how it is tearing the community apart. https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/91134

The user's solution of using the word Bugaboo instead of "problem" or "question" was actually implemented lmfao

Although they missed a spot where it is still called "problems"

Hello, you might know me as the anime contribution farmer kid who posts cf lore from time to time when I'm bored.

Today, we take a different approach. Oh no no no no no. Today we take a deep look into the mysterious and almost hidden section of code forces that is covered from the public eye. Today, my friends, we take a look at the comment section of blogs, organizations, teams, and the most secret and elusive of them all, discord. What codeforces has done is basically become a meeting ground for coding no-lifers (unless you are tourist and look like the mazer runner dude #touriststanarmy). What this has led to, in fact, is a festering playground for the demented. And what do demented people do when the meet many like minded people? Well, they form organizations. Cults you could even say. There is no better example of such than the infamous PurpleCrayon cult.

You see, purplecrayon is like any ordinary coding no-lifer. He's a master, he has 108 friends, and almost 60 contribution. His skill in programming extends past code forces as he is also very good at USACO too. What makes him interesting, however, is his physique. The way that he carries himself, the way that he talks, the way that he acts. Just take a look at the guy's comments and you will understand that he isn't ordinary. He seems like a modern superman; almost out of this world, with unique abilities and strengths. This of course, didn't go unnoticed and pretty soon a group of followers started to form around him. They view him as a god among men, and started to linger wherever Purplecrayon stepped foot. They leave comments orzing the guy everywhere they go (orzing someone looks like someone prostrating to god on the ground, the o being the head, the r being the bent arms, and the z being the bent legs). These followers aren't just any old alts or new accounts trying to be cool. They are really good programmers as well; most of them being masters, cms, experts, and specialists.

As you can see these guys trail in every comment section. They orz their mysterious leader in almost every important/official blog for strange reasons. This has gone way out of pocket.

Screen-Shot-2021-05-18-at-9-12-31-PM

They have their own organization and everything, although the organization seems to be for the general public to see.

Screen-Shot-2021-05-18-at-9-24-16-PM

They even have their own team for the elite members, those who use the gyrating orz purple crayon cat for their pfp.

Screen-Shot-2021-05-18-at-9-12-40-PM

I've even been initiated into this cult over discord, and to join, all I had to do was change my cf profile icon to that of a screenshot from the gyrating cat gif and join the cf group/org.

I have covered what is only public about this organization, and this information took a lot of digging to uncover. There is still much hidden beneath the surface of this cult that the rest of us simple coders are yet to understand. They connect with the gyrating cat and PurpleCrayon spiritually and use their bodies and cf accounts as vassles for their spiritual brotherhood. Even though I have talked about it a lot, there are still many questions I have. "what do these group members do on a day to day basis", "how many years has this cult been around", and "are they going to take over cf one day". All of these questions and many more can only be answered by them. I leave you to go on with your lives, but I don't know how you can sleep from now on knowing this information.

All jokes aside this was pretty fun to write and a huge thanks to lunchbox for being an orz. I spent about an hour writing this instead of studying for my exam tomorrow so please show this post some love! I hope you enjoyed this form of content and I will continue to investigate this org. Who knows I might even join it seems kinda sus.

You guys loved

Part 1 -> https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/88322

Part 2 -> https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/88357

Part 3 -> https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/88431

So here is the completed entire plot of the codeforces anime lore

To start off, I think Um_nik would be the main villain. I mean just look at the anime version of him

Screen-Shot-2021-03-03-at-10-44-03-AM

If he doesn't look like someone who would be walking around with a boss bar above his head in real life idk what reality even is. He is the badass who wears sunglasses indoors.

Next we have the protagonist of the entire anime: scott_wu.

Screen-Shot-2021-03-03-at-10-44-07-AM

He just gives off protagonist vibes. Someone commented that he would probably die in the second season on my blog post and I think that I just might agree since he looks so innocent. His best friend/mentor would probably be Radewoosh

Screen-Shot-2021-03-03-at-10-43-59-AM

Radewoosh seems to be the friend of the protagonist who also has a separate love plot going on in the background of the main anime. He looks just so friendly and the type of person who would take the innocent protagonist under his wing.

Next up is Petr.

Screen-Shot-2021-03-03-at-10-43-54-AM

Now where do I start with Petr. He seems like that one badass person who the viewers all think is a villian in the anime but he actually is either a good guy and helps the protagonist or turns good later on in the anime. I think we all want a friend like Petr irl.

To train them all to fight against um_nik, I think Benq would be the master/sensei. He gives off these rays of wisdom in his anime pic

Screen-Shot-2021-02-28-at-7-50-34-PM

Although he is a bit younger in this photo, add a little bit of grey hairs and a light beard and you got yourself the wise master who would sacrifice himself to save the protagonist in the anime.

Finally, we have tourist.

Screen-Shot-2021-02-28-at-7-50-39-PM

Now I really don't know where tourist would fall in this plot. He seems too nice to be a villain, too cool looking to be a protagonist, too young looking to be a mentor, too cold looking to be a friend or lover. Please write in the comments where he falls because I honestly have 0 clue. tourist is just a legend.

That wraps up the cf anime 2021 season 1. I will post a season 2 if this does well and I hope you enjoy!!!

Hello so I took todays contest and solved 0 problems, and so i went from around 570 to 490 rating, which is a pretty big drop considering im already at such a low rating. Well ive been scrolling past rating changes and other Newbies who have like 800-900 rating, which is MORE than me by a lot, who also solved 0 problems have only lost 8-3 rating. Can someone explain to me why I am loosing a ton of rating even when my rating is already much lower than others and I solve the same amount of problems as them (0). This screenshot shows that they did the same amount of problems as me, which is 0 Screen-Shot-2021-04-21-at-11-45-43-AM This screenshot shows that they only lost 8-3 rating

Screen-Shot-2021-04-21-at-11-45-46-AM This isnt a complaint so please dont downvote. I just want to know whats going on so I can improve. Thanks!
