What is not fair is to disqualify all of the solutions of the user (who have solved the problem on its own) which you did in my case just because you got one of my solution plagiarised which even though is not because look at the time of submission of the copied solution
Look, Codechef sees “Do codes match?”. Yes they do. After that it simply doesn’t care who copied who. That will simply be unfeasible for a team to do because of huge volume of plagiarism happening.
Secondly - you got your code leaked, you did plagiarised. You are as much guilty as the other guy. Any relaxation here means people will start intentionally sharing codes thinking they will anyway get off later.
Also, I fail to see how disqualifying just one submission and keeping you in contest is any better? Look at it from a third perspective - you know a user cheated/violated-rules. Whats the most natural thing you do? You disqualify him. Entirely. Its no new concept. If codechef does not want to be lenient here, you cannot force it to.
Looking at time of submission argument is flawed as I explained in my answer above.
but what you did was to disqualify all of my solutions and reduced my score to zero without any evidence of my other codes where also leak
Thats the most natural thing to do. You violated rules? Disqualify and apply penalty. We want penalties to be fixed per contest, and your suggestion is actually worse where people are bound to get more penalty (loss of rating from contest + the fixed penalty). I fail to see why your suggested method is better - you need to provide more arguments.
You guys (@vijju123 @admin) are shooting your foot by yourself
I personally don’t care. The policy is right, we are taking feedback on any genuine suggestion. I already proved why your suggested policy is worse. I think we are doing good.
then in future (actually it’s happening), you are going to lose your coders & community (significantly) because all of them will migrate to Code-Forces, AtCoder, etc
Let me drill this into your head. Codechef is a NOT FOR PROFIT. We are here to help coders improve. Our chief aim is to help India improve in coding rather than amass a wide audience to gain big revenues. You feel others are better for you? Feel free to move on.
Also let me drill this into your head - most of the people, especially those who have basic sense to not make their codes public or at least read rules before contest, are simply not affected by our MOSS policies as they are never caught by MOSS. The only pain point is moss sometimes flagging a few people because of matching templates, but its immediately corrected as soon as they appeal.
but the things which you did about disqualifying the solution really pissed me off.
Again, nobody cares honestly. If you are pissed off on Codechef because you leaked your code and we refuse to be lenient, then thats your own problem. Thats how the world goes dear, no second chances is actually a thing.
