The extension doesn't show correct score for Lunchtime contests. It shows 99.9999 irrespective of the actual score of the participant. Please correct the bug :)

@shivam1729 thanks alot man for telling this problems.. :D
After trying to find mistake for sometime i finally found i had coloum of score as : FLOAT(6,4)
Thats why it never went above 99.9999... :P
I have dropped all tables of LTIME and reconstructed them, the bug has been fixed... :)

some bug in college wise ranking extension. It is not showing correct ranks for May Cook-Off 2014... My rank was 385 and my collegemate's rank was 465 but it's showing hiS rank above me... please correct the bug :)

showing 5 of 9 show all

Hi @skbly7. I liked the extension very much but i felt that it should be positioned below the Actual overall rank list as college ranks change less frequently and need to be seen once or twice at max in a day. It would be great if this would be done.

Anyways great work. keep it up.

I thought of doing this initially, but many problems were coming, as the codechef's contest page wasn't having a fix design for each and every contest.
Just for example ACMKAN contest and other closed contests don't know any ranking on the page, and some other variations too..
But still, if some similarity is found, then this change will surely be made . :)

Hey the extension is awesome. I guess you need to fix this:

You might like the new display.. :)

The most amazing thing is you don't need to update the plugin even.. :P

(21 Jun '14, 22:43) skbly72★

and that's a nice improvisation you've done there! :p

(21 Jun '14, 23:04) gc_nit5★

Hi @skbly7,

Can you remove the dialog from the other pages? I just opened my profile page and a blank list is being shown there. It would be better if it only shows up on the contest pages.

So it is already ranked according to it.. :/
