I have finally realized the intensity of the problem. I myself joined cp (and cc) due to the laddus and prizes being awarded by codechef. How many more people must be wanting those laddus badly then?
However, you need to reach to the top (which is a lot of hard work) to get any award, which requires a lot of dedication blah blah.
Then…How do I win somehow? Idea! Exploit cc’s generosity (or compassion/motivation) for school students!
Yes! Just register as a school student, and your work is effectively done! You get special status as a school student, and get (nearly) free laddus every long/ltime.
I kept thinking of this, and decided to put my detective hat on. Let’s dive right into my findings
Rank 1 is authentic. No complaints.
Rank 2 @gjaisawal108 is interesting. His profile shows a ~22 year old person in the selfie. This got me thinking… Lemme run a google scan (Google is the real detective TBH)!
Wow. Same name, same face same handle maybe?
He’s in an engineering college!!!
The first and third clues can be arguable (tho they reduce the search space) but the second is clear evidence of cheating!
@vijju123 Here’s the first culprit. Dont send laddus, send police
I now, my rank comes up one place in the list. I’m currenly rank 4
But, how do both rank 2 and 3 have same score? That to with a relative difference of 0 in the challenge problem. Kuch tho gadbad hai!
@codingalways Quite amusing name isn’t it? For the fact that his linked profile has a name ‘Alive’. Now come on! Which school student would want to link that sort of name? Very funny right?
Lets see his submissions.
Ah! So his name is indrajit Sinha (if he thought less about credits for his code, and more about his hidden profile, it would have saved him)
Run google search on indrajit sinha. Some actors, buh! Lets add suffix ‘codeforces’. Okay, now I see some pple with the same names. But wait https://codeforces.com/profile/indrajit
the address on this is the same as the address on the codingalways account! Interesting… Lets go down further, whats this! There’s an indrajit sinha who’s a ccdsap qualified programmer!
Lets view his account. https://www.codechef.com/users/indrajit1
Wow! 6* coder. My dream position on cc!
Lol. Same address here again. Okay, it says he’s from a college, so we’re getting close now. But no definite claims made currently, as evidence is not solid enough.
But we have to show vijju that we are right! Lets dive into his JAVA sols (his C++ template is different sadly).
Wow. The same comment (excluding the name) is at the top. This is clear evidence that he’s the same person!
@vijju123 Send him our best wishes from discuss forum.
Julien day school (the school name on codingalways acc) is so so unbelievable.
@dani_dino Are you sure youre a school student? Invitation to CodeChef September Mega Cook-Off 2018!? Shows you were interested in getting reimbursements for icpc. And why do I see @codingalways comment directly above your comment? Seems like you guys have a connection…
Want more? Keep waiting, im doing another investigation!
Also, @admin Please demand for id card scans before registering any student as a school student.
