july 14 ranking is out? my profile is not showing any such update? why so?

@keyser21 no JULY14 ranking is still not out. He is talking about points table.

@keyser21 the user grayhathacker is talking about no. of questions done(ranking) and not rating

@grayhathacker these things happen only after account is blocked , moreover u can verify this doubt by trying a password reset for that user. u will get "user does not exist" or something like that

PS I know its wrong to check via password reset thing

@grayhathacker He has been removed from the rating process for JULY14 by Codechef.
You can verify this by opening this link :

You wouldn't find his username there, thats a clear indication. Moreover, I guess that account would have been or would be soon blocked by codechef too. (Might be because of some cheating he might have done)

PS :The answer is based on guess work, complete and final answer can only be get by Codechef team. I would suggest you to email them.

moreover on some more guesses, i think you would have checked this 5.63730 on
I would like to let you know that this site only update the score, it dont have any mechanism to remove such type of blocked/removed users automatically. Due to which you might have came across such confusion.
