If a person didn’t participate in this contest, will the streak be considered as broken? @admin

If a user participates (ie. solves at least 1 problem; and even partial solutions are counted) in each of CodeChef’s monthly contests (Long Challenge, CookOff, Lunchtime) in any 12 month period, then they will get 1000 Laddus .

RECode isn’t one of the monthly contests, so even if it is rated, it will not be considered for this streak.

Since this is rated for both divisions, will there be 7 problems for each division, or are all of the problems going to be common?

I guess they are going to be common and a single ranklist will be prepared and people of one div will be compared to other for ratings.
