The question has been closed for the following reason "Contest Cancelled. Hence, discussion closed." by vijju123 06 Oct '17, 01:58


Due to 5 problems having been copied directly from other contests by the organizing team, this contest is being cancelled. No prizes will be distributed.

We realize that many users have put in a lot of effort into solving these problems, but we see no other feasible option, and apologize for the same.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, and once again, very sorry for the whole mess.

Very disappointed to see @meooow supporting cheating , he submitted his first 5 solutions within 5-7 minutes, very disappointing to see a moderator of codechef forum supporting this without reporting such act! P.S- he cannot solve 5 questions in 5 minutes

wanted to up vote this post, but cannot , but I support IITB should be banned from code chef.

Hi,

We are very sorry for this deplorable situation. The five problems in question have been removed. We are in contact with the organizing team, and will soon decide whether the entire contest has to be cancelled, or not.

This is unfair. Permanently ban the organizers for wasting money of sponsors and time of other coders.

Tech fest guys are mostly poltu baaz.. they don't have much idea about these competitive problems.. so they just copy paste from other good competition sites.. -- sad but true.. --

This was one of the intended intra IIT contest we organised in IITI. I request you to please tell me if we have copied problems from anywhere :) . Don't generalise things

(07 Oct '17, 01:28) kr_abhinav6★

I did not generalise that.. Thats why I used mostly in my sentence.. :)

@striverlearner of course I cannot solve problems of this difficulty this fast, if at all. At first I was wondering the contest is a joke :P
Yes, it is not allowed to have problems from other contests in open contests on Codechef. But there's nothing I can do about that. The contest should rightly be cancelled.
However, as a participant I have not broken any rules. I have used publicly available code and provided due attribution. If it's not cancelled, well INR 1,00,000 prize pool for a Google search contest is not something you see everyday :P

I can't even believe you're justifying this, man. This is a huge letdown. Attributing is fine as long as its just a snippet and not the entire solution(My understanding of that particular Codechef rule).

(05 Oct '17, 22:00) akshayvenkat975★

yes @meooow is not really expected to justify such things , let down by him.

@spp____ not possible to do so , and why bothering to do so , how can you copy questions? Codechef rules clearly states that it all its contests needs to have genuine questions and not copied when you apply for hosting an event.

(05 Oct '17, 21:28) spp____2★

yes , but being a moderator at code chef you should have informed code chef about this at that moment, and i really don't think they are going to give any prize money , as the cheating has been exposed. p.s- do not have enough karma to comment on the same thread

swetankmodi rank 5th in that ranklist , being such high rated people at code chef , we expect you to be honest and report this to code chef , every time prize money is not what you need , honesty should be there.
