Approach for Question making

I think along with editorials, there should also be approach what made the problem setter create this problem. what questions inspired him, etc, etc.

Great idea, but there aren’t a ton of people who could benefit from it…
just an opinion…

Like at the end of the Editorial, along with “Related Problems”/ “Chef’s Corner” etc, there’d be a:

Problem History

Came up with this idea while drunk

or something like that?

I’d certainly be interested to see such at thing, but I don’t think it should be mandatory.

Yep, that’s definitely better

As far as I know , new problems are created by using concepts from 3-4 different past problems + sometimes setter discovers something completely new and interesting which he/she wants to share :slight_smile:

Yes, it would be great if setter can share the process.
