CODECHEF Attendance

When I open my username to see my attendnce. It is showing wrong against all contest of March. But I was present in cook off and long challenge. So, reporting minor bug here.
Btw I was also present in oct17. You can see my rating fall. But since I was not able to solve any question. So Your tool is showing me absent.

@shraeyas Please add March Lunchtime 18 as unrated in your tool. As mentioned here


Username is not being validated.

Even if we enter wrong username, it shows attendance instead of showing the error.

Hey @shraeyas

Nice Tool.
I guess u missed one thing. Problem setting panel is also deemed to be participating in the contest, for the purpose of attendence, as i know.

For example, @vijju123 was editorialist for APRIL18, but he is shown to have not participated in APRIL18. (Wasnt stalking. Just thought of this possibility and searched for the Master Chef Vijju :smiley: )

@shraeyas I was not able to solve any question in April Cook Off. It shows me absent but I’m present and I have made ~5 unsuccessful submissions.

A great idea and implementation!

For the past couple of days I have been trying to check my attendance but it shows invalid username. Have tried with a bunch of different usernames and all the same error message.


The only confusion I have presently is whether I should remove that CodeChef Logo or not(Cause it’s unofficial :p).

I will remove it if they ask me to.

Regarding logo, send them a mail. It would be safe that you “informed them”, instead of using it until they retaliate. Cause logos and stuff…its usually best to take permission to avoid unnecessary hassle.

And lmao, i knew you will bring something like this up when i saw you thanking for idea. :stuck_out_tongue:


Great work:)

Absolutely. I just wrote the code for the basic site, didn’t even think much about additional features.

I will definitely add this feature in the near future.

Thank You :slight_smile:

Its showing i didnt attend march cook-off. But i did attend it (it was declared unrated later)

It actually tracks the changes in ratings and then tell us if someone participated or not.

But I will try finding a fix on that, but till then kindly bear with me (need to study for exams too :stuck_out_tongue: ).

Thanks for pointing that out. :slight_smile:

I guessed that it would be checking changes in ratings, as its makes it very easy to code :stuck_out_tongue: .

@mathecodician Yes you are right. That’s because it was unrated. :slight_smile:

He mentioned in above comments that its because that contest was unrated. His algo checks for changes in ratings.
