I love this community as it is promoting good coding culture to all young coders. But Is it worthy to participate in contests ? I feel no, because many of so called 6 rated coders are copying the same code by sharing to others. Is it recommendable in this community. Many students learn a lot during weeks and participate in these contests. But their work is completely going in vain because of these guys. They may get 5 star or 6 star or 7 star in community. But the bottomline is cheating. I have seen this guys cheating not only in this contest but also in many contests and naming themselves rated coders. I respect this community a lot especially students get so much inspiration from legendary coders like @yashchandnani, @teja349, @cerebrus97 etc. There are many people like this who have been inspiring young coders .
But I sincerely request the admin or codechef community to remove this coders out of this community . So that true talent get appraised.
Solution of Ashish
Same code copied by two people named Ashish Gupta and Abdullah Aslam . Just change of variables and function names and Starter template. Not only this solution Many solutions are copied by these two people in many contests. They are ranked 1 and 2 in this contest.
I feel very bad Our Indian coders are doing like this. That too some experienced coders. I feel very very bad about this.
I also have seen that boy named Ashish is a problem setter too in March Long contest. Is this kind of people community is encourarging
I Dont know if my claim will be there or deleted . But i wanted this community to take care of these type of issues. They have to be penalized compulsory.
