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?

Does this mean that user is eligible for cash prize only if he has been in the Top 2 in past? Or he will get equivalent extra laddus for this? And if a user has been in the top 2 in div2. And then in the top in Div1 because is not a first timer so he is eligible for cash?

For obtaining 100% attendance participation reward, can a user's participation streak start from Cook Off or Lunch Time?
Or will it start from the beginning of the month, i.e., Long Challenge?
For Example:
If a user is participating regularly from June Cook Off 2017, then can he get 100% attendance participation reward for June Cook Off 2017 to June Long Challenge 2018?
Or will he get it for July Long Challenge 2017 to June Lunch Time 2018?

No, read again. It clearly states that you must do all the 3 contests for 12 months.

This is with regard to the 100% participation. Will unrated contests like March Lunchtime 2018(LTIME58A) be taken into account for that category?

I wanted to participate in it, but as it was postponed I thought would do it in the practice section. So will my participation streak be reset to zero or not?

@dhruvsomani dude, I did not have enough karma points so I asked here, I am new to codechef , what do you want me to do?

I think he wanted you to delete this question once you asked it independently for better health of this thread. :)

I had talked with @admin about this the moment this issue occurred and persisted for over 10 minutes. No, it will not be counted, even if it were rated. Contest being unrated for other reasons may be included however.

(02 Apr, 20:36) vijju123 ♦♦5★

Hi, have the prizes for march challenge been distributed ? I have received nothing yet. I last time I got something, it was very quick.

Isin't it taking very long this time ?

@admin,@vijju123 i fell just top 3 school students in long challenge div 2 is low, i think top 5 might be better due to no of school students in div 2 is much higher when compared no of school students in div 1. just a suggestion(atleast for indian school students)

The main incentive of this is to discourage Div1 school students from purposely falling to Div2 for prizes. I will forward it to see if numbers can be adjusted.

(02 Mar, 23:04) vijju123 ♦♦5★

Ok , still what are people going to do with 100 laddus when u get 300 laddus in div 1 and u re performance improves.i Guess those who do that are madY

(03 Mar, 15:00) lokesh20024★

I am new here. Is there a different ranklist for Indians or if Indians come first they get the prize money?

Thank you.

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

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_chopra4★

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

(27 May '17, 16:33) vijju123 ♦♦5★

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) sarthakmanna6★

@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) sarthakmanna6★

@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_4★

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

(21 May, 10:46) sarthakmanna6★

@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).
