Most of the solutions of the long contest were available on youtube.
If this would be repeated, Codechef ratings will become a joke in the future.
Although with honesty, we are learning and improving our programming skills. But for sake of Codechef’s reputation, a few strict rules to be made coz there would be no point to prove our hard work in interviews/resumes using codechef’s ranks and ratings.
Edit 1: Suggestions - Codechef can reduce the time of long contests to 4-5days.
