Absurd decrease in rating

A person having higher rating than me and scoring equal(even same questions done) to me this month’s long contest had increase in his ratings while i saw a decrease in mine. :frowning: Please explain.

There is no problem in calculating ratings. Your ratings are dropped because of plagiarism in JULY15 Long challenge. You can see that your solved solutions are removed from your profile page. I think you already got a mail from Codechef regarding why they decreased you ratings, once check it.
