The problem NANDXOR had an issue in the checker - participants outputting extra whitespaces were getting a WA instead of AC. The checker has been fixed, all non-AC submissions rejudged, and ratings recalculated. A total of 26 users across all divisions had at least one of their submission’s verdict changed due to the rejudge, and we apologize for this mistake. Among those 26 affected participants, 8 users had their rating decrease for the contest, and that decrease has been reversed for them to have a net of +0 rating change in this contest. That is, the contest is unrated for those 8 participants. An email has been sent to all the 26 affected participants.

Apologies again for the issue.
