I am new to CodeChef. I am not sure what can be considered as an improper conduct on this website. I do not want to be penalized for doing something unknowingly which is not the accepted behavior. Is there any such Code of Conduct?

You can see the updated version here: https://www.codechef.com/codeofconduct

CodeChef is a playground for computer programmers. And just like any other sport, we too have some basic expectations from our users. Nothing stringent to worry about. These are just simple and small practices that all of you have been following, or if not, shall be following from now on. :slight_smile:

So, let’s get started:

  • You shall not possess more than one account on CodeChef. If you have, then do let us know by sending an email to help@codechef.com, so that we can deactivate the ones that you do not wish to use.

  • If you encounter any problem during an ongoing contest, post it on the respective problem page. The problem setter will help you get over it. Alternatively, you can write to us at help@codechef.com. We will try and address it in the best possible manner.

  • Queries related to any specific problem, after the contest should be posted on the editorial page of the problem on discuss. That’s the most hospitable place for your problem specific queries.

  • If you are taking part in CodeChef’s contests, you must take good care of your code. Protect it from getting leaked, getting shared, and getting copied by your foes, friends, or just a random peer. It is your responsibility to provide it the safety it deserves.

  • Avoid using any online IDE’s or code sharing sites like pastebin to share your code. In case you must, the responsibility of protecting your code lies solely with you. If you’re using ideone, you can read about protecting your code on it here.

  • You guys write beautiful codes. Why ruin it by obfuscating it? Keep the real beauty of the code intact. Do not obfuscate it.

  • Taking help or using a third party code is not bad. Passing it off as your own is. If you are taking your code from some other source, it is expected that you give the due attribution to the source in your code. It is mandatory.
    But in case you have missed giving attribution to a third party code, and you get caught in our plagiarism check, then you have the option of proving to us that this was indeed a publicly available code. Note that the proof of burden rests on you to prove beyond a doubt that the code which you used was available publicly before the relevant contest began.

  • Do not ask or discuss any aspect of any CodeChefs’ problem during an ongoing contest on any other platform, online or offline. Discussion of strategy should be avoided during the contest and postponed till the end.

  • You shall avoid sharing formulae, logic, or any other significant aspect of your problem, which can take your solutions under scanner and make you look untidy.

  • You may try to solve a problem as a team, but then make sure that there is only one submission made for a discussed solution in a contest. Submitting the same solution (even algorithm) by the different members of the team or a discussion group is not fair and will be considered as plagiarism.

  • Stay honest to the community. If you come across any wrongdoing, which hampers the decorum of the community on or off it, do report that to us. We will investigate the issue and take appropriate action to stop it.

  • Do not try any dishonest means to move up the rank tables.

Not adhering to the above set of guidelines may lead to suspension of your account and/or reduction in your rating points.

Really?? Is obfuscated code a sin?? :stuck_out_tongue:


#4

I would suggest putting the Code of conduct in the Help (FAQ) Section on the Codechef site and providing a link to the same in the Rules section in each contest.


#5

I sent a mail to help@codechef.com asking to deactivate my old codechef account. It was around a week back and the account is still active. Please do the needful.

Passing it off as your own is. If you are taking your code from some other source, it is expected that you give the due attribution to the source in your code. It is kind of mandatory. Do not ask or discuss any aspect of any CodeChefs’ problem during an ongoing contest on any other platform, online or offline.

My sincere advise to everyone please never use ideone.
I have invested so much time and my energy to solve sept long challenge 2016 and one stupid brainless guy copied my code as it is and due to that stupid guy my rating goes down to 4K from 10K.
His fake name was Rahul Bhatia and his original name was (Hardik Gulati) at Jaypee Institute of Information Technology and his handle is rahul1714.
His fb profile is (https://www.facebook.com/smart.hardik.gulati)
Beware of such stupid fellows.
for proof I m giving my code which i have submitted on 9th Sept
https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/11392815
and he submitted exact code of mine on 15th Sept
https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/11525589

And request codechef please change some rules for plagiarism cases because many innocent peoples have to suffer huge loses because of someunkown useless guy… :frowning: :frowning:
