I’m thinking to take part in March Long Challenge.So my college senior told me to try Feb Long Challenge problem.
Then out of curiosity I opened my senior codechef profile where I saw that he has solve around 7 problem in Feb Long then also his score is showing zero.When I talked to him he told me that he got a mail for doing plagiarism in Cash problem of Feb Long.
This blown my mind .
Person who has solve around 7 problem have to do cheating for 2nd problem which is hell lot easy problem.
This made me sad since even though he have not done any plagiarism act he is termed as plagiarist.
Having around 13k AC solution it is really possible that many code were too much similar.
Then I came to know that one of my batchmate also recieve mail regarding plagiarism in THEATRE problem .He showed me both code literally speaking both code are only 40% similar.
His also manage to solve 6 problem on his own.
People whom with their code match is not from our institute also.
I think Codechef has to reevaluate their plagiarism result for Feb Long once again and especially for first three problem.
People solving 6-7 problem are getting mail for plagiarism for first 3 problem .
If someone has solve 3-4 problem and he got mail for plagiarism for any of first 3 problem ,then might he/she has really done cheating.
But giving mail that you have done plagiarism to someone who has solve around 6-7 problem ,this is really weird.
I’m totally noob in CP even then I can also solve first 3 problem:sweat_smile: of Feb Long.
Solving 6-7 problem need high effort and this type of thing really demotivate someone who has given too much effort for 10 day to get single AC.
