Seems like there's a problem here? From looking at a couple other users, Petr's rating is also wrong.

BTW look at my graph for the real rating (2418).

EDIT: ACMath linked a blog in Russian, it seems these might actually be legit :O


EDIT later: ok it's varying a lot, and apparently something is changing!

I remember, before the revolution when I was still red, I found I was the one who attached many if not most of the Announcements and Editorials to the contest pages. It was one of the features (along with coach mode) I discovered after achieving red, and I did it consistently because it was useful for not only me but others. I know when I go back to contests I always look at the announcement and editorial to see if there's anything more to learn (from the post or comments).

The main point is — currently this isn't getting done sometimes, and when it is, it can be many days or weeks later.

As a couple examples:

http://codeforces.com/contest/611 has neither and I have to go to Errichto's page to find them.

http://codeforces.com/contest/605 and http://codeforces.com/contest/607 only have one of the two.

No longer true, yay! Hope this keeps up :)

Anyway, I think it would be great to have red coders who will attach the announcements and tutorials, and possibly extending the permission to orange or lower would also be a good idea.

(also, I'm not entirely sure that this is for red users anymore, but this 4 year old blog post seems to suggest so: http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/4619)
