# Points for Practice on codechef

 5 4 As other online coding site like hackerrank or topcoder etc. provides points for practice problems...Why not codechef provide?? Practice will be more fun if we get points/ranks(separate for practice) also for practice too.. What you think ?? please post your review or vote for this post if you think it is good.. or It would be great but Codechef should make the submissions of other users and editorials too hidden until the user has solved the question by himself/herself or no points solving after seen others solution or partial points solving after seeing editorials.. Hackerrank follows the same rule Happy Coding asked 26 Aug '15, 01:38 1.1k●12●29 accept rate: 6% 4 I dont think that maruti international helps you to find correct answer of this question then why did you select as correct answer. they are advertising on codechef we should inform @admin rather than promoting them.

 4 Well idea is good but:- -every user who do practice should be honest means do not create fake id and see solution then submit solution in original id to get good rank -if codechef hide solution completely then it will be like SPOJ we will not able to do practice at all -after sometime practice section rank will not make any sense it will lead frustration because you will be honest while practicing but a one who is weak in programming may cheat than he will be at better rank than you. -also a headache for codechef it create extra load on server. COOK61 is epitome of this. $and$ $also :-$ -we want to do more practice to get good rank in practice section. -we will spend more time on solving question than directly going for editorials. -competition will last forever not only thrice(long,cook,lunch) in month. -more number of coder's will come to practice section. BTW i am upvoting your question :) answered 26 Aug '15, 17:13 5★admin123 1.2k●12 accept rate: 28% thanks for your suggestion @admin123 (26 Aug '15, 17:49)
 0 It would be great but Codechef should make the submissions of other users hidden until the user has solved the question by himself/herself. Hackerrank follows the same rule and Codeforces doesnot increase your rating if you solve practice problems. answered 26 Aug '15, 01:45 983●14 accept rate: 11% thanks....

 0 No , i think there shouldnt be, if points or ranks are awarded to it, then it will onl encourage more people to see / submit others/testers solution which is visble , practice problem should be done for learning purpose only. answered 26 Aug '15, 19:11 439●14 accept rate: 16%
 0 @rcsldav2017.: Don't take it wrong way but don't you think that few things are better kept out of points/reputations/votes or things like that? Doesn't that create pressure? Rather I think it's great to have some problems which you can practice without thinking about points. I think this is a newcomer viewpoint..many will not agree with me. Rather I will request admin of codechef's to make some system where there will be points for writing good editorials. Most of the editorials seem quite hard to me frankly. answered 26 Aug '15, 20:09 0★a____ 79●11 accept rate: 20% 1 actually we have also discussed about making editorial easy.. use can see this also under "letter to codechef admin " point just go through too.. this is not pressure this is just to keep addidict to practice more and more.. any way your point is good.. (26 Aug '15, 21:00) @rcsldav2017.: Yes the letter points out what I have said..thanks for pointing out. (26 Aug '15, 23:33) a____0★ then vote fore it... @a__ (27 Aug '15, 00:02) 1 I have ... @rcsldav2017 (27 Aug '15, 06:50) a____0★
 0 @admin123 What u said about cheating is right and i agree but I have one suggestion that(i guess) can work. If the performance of the contest can be considered for practice points then the problem can be solved i.e. if a coder is solving a particular level of questions in practice then he should be able to solve ques of same level in the contest also. Then there will be very minute possibility that a cheater will be on top of a better coder. PS: - I suggest that submissions must be visible for all as weak coders(who may not be able to solve a particular que) can have a look at any of the submissions of that que and learn from it(obviously they wont get points for that). answered 26 Aug '15, 20:42 2★gmdsam 56●3 accept rate: 100% thanks ..we will take some of ideas from here will mail to codechef admin soon.. keep posting ideas and vote for this post..

 0 sometime it happens that u get to learn on seeing the solutions of problems.. so basically we all are here to learn . so codecef gives us the platform to learn from others as well . which separates it from others answered 28 Aug '15, 21:59 1★shekhar7 16 accept rate: 100% first try with yourself if you are not able then only go to others solutions or after solving you can see other solution freely (28 Aug '15, 23:58)
 0 @geek_geek thanks.. but all solution will made hidden...without loosing marks you will not be able to see solution.. and ranking of practice are just points does not imply on actual contest ranking/rating.. answered 26 Aug '15, 19:56 1.1k●12●29 accept rate: 6%
