Interesting observation

I just noted that the top 2 guys in Indian ranking have the exact same long contest rating points, ranking and rating graphs. Coincidence ???

Guess what I think its no coincidence,

[CHEATERS SPOTTED]

I just looked at 4 of their solutions only

for contests in Feb 14 month

and all of them are same, yes the very first four solutions I checked,

Dont believe me , have a look

and these 2 ppl are currently 1st n 2nd in India in Mar 14. Also have very identical profile with same rating points

Come on guys, if u are having 1st nd 2nd rank this way, then even the last ranked contestant who is doing it the fair way
is better than you two.

Just waiting for 3 pm, if u knw what i mean :wink:

Nice observation @n2n_

That’s why short contest is better.

  1. Some time people exchange code
  2. Some time logic
  3. Some time test cases
    All are cheating
    And a moral degradation for poor fair contestants.
    :). Codechef can’t do anything until a programmer stop doing this things by himself.

A small doubt, if the 2nd and 3rd rankers are removed for cheating, will 4th place gets the prize money given for 2nd place in long contests as mentioned here? :smiley:

Also the solutions of both to the question http://www.codechef.com/MARCH14/problems/STREETTA are looking same, just they changed some variable names and modified the function locations

Are these also similar ? (Challenge problem submissions of vinay and pushkar)

Though the score is different (1633,1632) the comments are same. Or maybe they coded all solutions together ?

lol :smiley: adurysk

@adurysk: I guess you should email the admins, as they may not see the forum posts here but are more likely to see their mailbox. Also, in my view, if they have cheated, both of them should be disqualified even if one of them comes up and apologizes that he copied and the other guy is innocent.
