Hall of Shame
Thanks to everyone for signing it! I hope you all had a great time at World Finals, and I'll see you on the scoreboard on the next Codeforces Rounds! It was great to finally meet so many people who I've only seen virtually before in person. If you have any fun pictures from WF that you're itching to share, the comments below are always open.
