So in the contest this happened -
There were some extra whitespaces at the end of lines in the testdata of Problem C. It has been fixed now, and all submissions will be re-judged at the end of the contest so that no penalty is incurred due to this. We apologize for the error.
Because of this I wasted an hour and a few wrong submission. The whitespaces issue happened only to python users because they take the whitespace as well while taking the input. So a similar thing happened in March Cook-Off but in that contest the ratings were removed. Please make this contest un-rated as well. I don’t have issues because of the whitespace issue as I should have moved on with the other problems but then in that case you should make March Cook-Off rated.
Secondly they didn’t even remove the penalty for the wrong(although correct) submissions.
See here - https://www.codechef.com/rankings/IOPC2017?filterBy=Institution%20type%3DSchool%3BCountry%3DIndia&order=asc&sortBy=rank
My score is giving 2(-8) where as it should be 2(-6).
Because of these reasons I incurred a loss of 148 rating.
@admin please see, time of 1hr+2 wrong submissions = 1hr 40 mins is a lot of time wasted.
