Copied Problems on CodeChef

The recently held contest Coding Spark 1.0 has a problem (SPARK003) that is exactly copied from another contest Real Life Problems problem (ISOMER).

@admin @cubefreak777 @suman_18733097 Please look into this

The author spyder_sr of the copied problem is a 4* coder and he has submitted solutions to the contest which he is organizing. Isn’t it a violation of the Terms of organizing a Contest?

That shouldn’t be a problem unless there were prizes for the top performers.

Maybe, he submitted to test the problem. Anyways, testing while the contest is going on shows the failure of a person.
