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?

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

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

(27 May, 16:33) vijju1234★

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

Or you can ask someone to give you one

You need to win contests for prizes. I mean you get some "Laddus" with which you can buy goodies for free.
