Regrading of SSTORY that happened yesterday suprised me. I didn’t have enough time available so I decided to do first six problems last week, and some more tonight. It all started out great, but now, my SSTORY solution gives WA, and there is a lot more to code in order to fix it. If I knew that my code was wrong, I would’ve coded more last week and fixed it, thus staying on my own schedule. Now I didn’t even manage to do SSTORY, let alone do some more problems. I think that fixing weak test cases is good, but it can put some competitors in a bad situation, risking the rating in the process. I’m pretty much giving up now, with at least two problems I am able to solve unsolved.
As far as I can tell, you won’t extend the contest. I just wanted to tell you my opinion on this: we deserve this contest to be extended for a day or two, because of the inconvenience caused.
