The code other than mine belongs to my ACM-ICPC teammate and we both use the same template code for all online/onsite contests. By looking at a glance or using software it would seem that the codes are identical, but our main codes always have different logic or syntax. This is valid for all of the codes we have ever written. I have checked and didn’t find any rule stating that we cannot use similar templates in codes. We have never used any unfair means during any CodeChef contests or any other programming contests and yet we have been falsely accused of so. I don’t think somebody should be penalized just for using same #defines, typedefs and templates during the contests. This just makes no sense. Rather they should be more focused on checking users who share codes or ideas or just use plain copy/pasting. And if this should be the case then I don’t think I would like to participate on such a platform. I hope the @admin will look into this matter.
Like I’ve already said, I won’t participate on such a platform which falsely accuses contestants and after does nothing about it to correct it. For now I’m just gonna wait for their response and see what they do.
It is unfair to suggest that codechef are not making efforts to rectify their mistake.
Please see this and this.
And many innocent users have already got their ratings back as @ritesh_malav has commented here.
