Ashkenazi did the grand majority of that work.

You currently cannot.

We have discussed this idea but it currently is not possible.

In this case, viewing it publicly the 'New Problem Vaiarion' button

Some problem types (imageresponse, and gnuplot problems) have issues
when attempting to run in 'public' mode.
