Plural? :slight_smile: Will be interesting to see how this impacts the delay before Editorials being released.

Delay should ideally be zero now,
Expecting editorials (of tough questions) just after the contest :slight_smile:

maybe several editorialists work on each editorial and the delay is greater than before :roll_eyes:

:frowning: Aren’t 10 days enough for each setter to complete editorial for his own question alone

Problem setters may or may not be good in writing editorials.

Been waiting for this for soooo long.

I think great step and it would be better if each problem is visible only for one day and every day one new problem comes. This I think would be better as ranks gets increased very much during last days and one day is enough to try a sum many times and it would also encourage people to make a visit to Codechef daily and not in the last days.

Don’t open contest page, I will share link of one problem everyday with you :stuck_out_tongue:
And FYI 1 day is not enough for each problem. Can you solve last problem of long in one day ? I cannot.
Let everybody else enjoy all 10 problems at a time.
Or else try hackerearth circuits.
PS: I hate that format of hackerearth long challenge.

The time required for each problem is not equal for me. Its like I solve first 3 in a day, then i need 1-2 more day for next two and then I need 6-8 or infinity days for next one or two.

I totally agree with you but if I’m able to solve a problem in 24 hours and I solve it in 25th hour then I won’t regret if someone got points for it .

I don’t mind others getting points for it.
I mind when people who took more than 24 hours of hardwork not getting points. They will just leave the partially solved problem after 24 hours. That shouldn’t be done.

I’m guessing this long challenge for div-2 will have same level as of March one. Top 3 easy, 4th and after medium-hard or hard.
