Hi all - I am new in codechef. I started doing contests around a month ago. Today i got a mail about my solution being similar to one other contestant. And yes i agree my code is somewhat similar. But the real issue is the problem in which i got plagiarised is a simple problem with direct approach with couple of lines of codes. Hence, chances of similar codes.
START36D division 4, was my 2nd contest in codechef (1 star coder). I can’t actually explain much.
I just want to know how come there is zero possibility of few lines of code not being similar when there are around 10,000 users attempting it. I think that this Anti-Plagiarism should not be used for atleast Div 4 problems(mainly for simple codes) as there is high chances of similarities.
I have also replied The Chef in the mail about it. Hope i get justice.
Below are the codes that got plagiarised. (my code and someone named @anon55306107 kt0601)
