Hello everyone!

So if there're any admins or developers for CodeForces or enthusiasts out here — I've got an idea:

What if you guys would implement a system of quick contests 1v1, 2v2... The key idea is that everybody will be able to create a quick contest in a particular area to have a brief competition with his friend(s) to enhance their skill or just have some fun. Problems will be randomly chosen from an archive (as of now) and one will be able to set their amount.

I think this idea has a lot of potential since it hasn't been made anywhere yet. This can be a way to widen our relatively small CP community and throughout the time other mechanisms can be created based on this existing one.

There are such bots where you can perform duels for 1v1 and lockouts challenges for group participation!. You can join many discord cp servers and have the fun you want :)

    I don't think any of them can provide such quality like CodeForces :)

      The problems that are chosen by the bot are from the codeforces problem set.

        A convenient environment changes everything IMO It can be anything somewhere out there, but when you have great UX and UI, responsible system and so and so on — the chances of a raise (in terms of CP community) of a such place is much more

We did create something like this during a hackathon. Although it isn't polished.

Maybe someone can write an app like Arugo or CF-Stonks and implement some real-time duel mode. It'll be quite fun, but I know nothing about app development lol

A website in China has already implemented this idea.

    Unfortunately its implemented in Mandarin so no one except Chinese can use it

Works pretty well in my experience.

    Either I'm doing something wrong or it doesn't let me add other CF handles when I create my room
