I have been noticing that in most of the editorials, the links to setter’s, tester’s and editorialist’s solutions are broken and show the following message:
"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
Why does this keep happening to so many editorials?
Moreover, so many problems don’t even have editorials. Below are few of the MANY problems that don’t even have editorials when it’s mentioned in the rules for hosting the contest that the problem setter should provide an editorial. Few probelms are even from previous long challenges.
Actually all problems from CDON15
All the LOC contests
All ICPC preparatory contests
And the list goes on.
It is very difficult to read others’ codes and understand the concept the problem requires Many of these are quality problems and introduce some new concepts that a novice programmer might not have. And editorials do a good job at explaining the solution. Even if it is not possible to walkthrough the problem even providing a hint or basic idea could help out. Its frustrating to try a problem for hours only to realize that now I have to read the code to be able to solve it. Also, it’s unreasonable to skip the problems that don’t have editorials and filter out problems with editorials for practice.
Thank you in advance whoever answers to my problem.
