Due to unexpectedly large number of participants in the Lunchtime, our systems were unable to handle the load, and we are forced to stop the contest, which will be unrated. The problems will be moved to the Practice section. We are very sorry, and will be scaling up for the next contest.
(For the attendance streak, all users will be considered to have participated in this contest, irrespective of whether they submitted or not)
But i think this is not fair. This contest wasted my 1 and a half hour which i could have used to do something else. I was in the middle of submitting a problem when i got this message. How does codechef compensate this time loss and the effort and arrangements i did in the process of attempting this contest?
