I recently came across the currently running contest ./EXECUTE on codechef. When I saw the problems of the contest I found that some of them were directly copied from the earlier codechef rounds( infact very recent rounds, just slight wording changed).
I want to know about following things. Should codechef not atleast view the problems that whether they are of sufficient quality to be allowed to set up as a contest ? If this kind of situation happens more frequently, I am sure that some of the serious participants who wants to participate in serious contests, might deter from participating in new external contests. I know a lot of good external contests happen on codechef and people have put up a good amount of work in maintaining their standards. So should codechef allow external contest without any verification of problem statements.
And I am also worried that all the comments at the contest page who stated that the problems are copied from some earlier contests were deleted. This is not at all a good way of organising contests.
I want admins to do something about this issue.
