Delete option for any member in any forum is not a good option, you know. What if you let someone use your account and they delete your account. That's inconvenient. Joining CodeChef, though I only read answers from others, I found it very helpful :)

We currently do not support the feature of deleting user accounts on CodeChef. Deleting a user disturbs the associations with various entities across the site. This feature is surely in our pipeline.

Ya this feature must be there.I have been penalized wrongly and now I am mailing and no response from codechef. I even called at the given time many times but no one's there.If this goes on, I m gonna delete my account. But damn this feature is not there so I will request codechef admin.I like codechef but this is creating a very bad image in my mind about them.

What? Cant delete my account! That's bullshit. I can't accept this answer from CodeChef which aims to prepare next ACM-ICPC champions from among Indian students.

For, all the while I had been promoting CodeChef to so many people but now I am feeling bad after reading this answer.

I love CODECHEF. It has really helped me as a coder. But still the fact that CODECHEF doesn't have a username changing option sucks.


P.S. I created my username as a joke but now i'm stuck with it. Not cool man . Not cool. Seriously add a username changing option man. Please.

Changing a database design it's not that hard. You can create an special user nammed "user deleted" and link all posts and activity from deleted profiles to there.

Read more about foreign keys, and what to do on "on delete set 1569" (in this example "1569" is the ID of the special user.

I'm really ashamed at you. A programming tool made by people who doesn't know how to delete profiles without break database design. You're a shame for all programmers.

"Intelligent People.Uncommon Ideas."
The uncommon ideas of those intelligent people who doesn't even have an idea of how to design database and eventually reached at a stage where they don't even know how to deal with this problem because of stupid design of database. I really advise these intelligent people to go and learn database design principles first.

PS: Nevertheless I would like to add that the platform for problem solving is good.

Its not a social network that you are gonna fool around. There's a phrase: "While Little elephant walks having mouthful of candies , it doesn't matters to him when a bunch of dogs start barking." You can choose the character that suits you better.

Ok, probably it is not perfect, but CodeChef is quite good. Do you have some idea what to make better?

You have to realize, that if you cannot solve a problem, it's not CodeChef problem, it's yours (and I'm not someone who solves 10 of 10 in long contest)...

you created this account just to say this though you might be well using codechef and trying hard to solve the problems with no success and that's what makes you hate codechef?

PS: now you wont be able to delete this account!

@shanemendez01 coming from the person whose city is "CODE CHEF IS GAY"... This time you've spent making an idiot out of yourself you could've been practicing or learning something useful.

You have to earn the right to criticize something and for what you're showing here you seem to be miles away from that. If you were a little rational you would understand how great codechef is in so many ways...

Anyway thanks, I had a good laugh seeing your information in your profile as I'm sure others will do...
