I want to know how can I get a CodeChef goodie? In which monthly contests, how many goodies are given? Does CodeChef also give certificates to the winners?

Just wondering how much djdolls would have collected until now :-P

(01 Oct '14, 13:41) pranjalranjan4★

@admin , How will we know about the 5 randomly selected participants for the Random Laddus prize category?

(27 May '17, 14:36) pankaj_chopra3★

If i am not wrong, the "goodies" are now replaced by laddus.

(27 May '17, 16:33) vijju123 ♦4★

Do we get response on reporting a bug whether the bug is inconsistent or was invalid ?

(28 May '17, 19:50) godslayer121★

@pankaj_chopra I have received 200 laddus for "LTIME58A - Top 5 Random Laddus Division 1".

So, do they give random laddus? - Yes.

Do they give random laddus to 5 participants after every contest? - I don't know.

(01 May, 16:00) sarthakmanna5★

@admin "Top 3 Challenge Scores (except winner) will receive 150 laddus"

  1. What does the div2 winner get?

  2. Will I receive laddus for May Long Challenge div2 as an Indian challenge problem solver? https://www.codechef.com/rankings/MAY18B

(21 May, 08:30) sarthakmanna5★

@sarthakmanna 1. Div2 winner (School student) will get 150 laddus. 2. Yes, as you are one of the top 3 Indian challenge problem solver, you will get 150 laddus (as you are not one of the winners).

(21 May, 09:33) bhushan_1★

@bhushan_ What if the winner is not a school student? I can't find any category in which he falls

(21 May, 10:46) sarthakmanna5★
1

@sarthakmanna Winners will always be school students, no matter what rank they are having. So, if a person is rank 1 in div 2 but he is not a school student, he won't be a winner (though he can claim the top 3 challenge score laddus).

(21 May, 14:30) bhushan_1★
showing 5 of 9 show all

for top 20 indians what is the criteria like there are many students on same rank ?? so all will get or just the top 20 ??

This is not the thread for such question..!!

Please search appropriate thread and ask there.

btw, printf and scanf are faster than cout and cin. :)
