I saw two users coming out of nowhere went at the top of the Referral Rank list for SnackDown 2017 overnight. I thought they were hosting some sort of onsite contests and prompted the participants to register for SnackDown through their referral links.
Now I see both of them kicked off the Rank list. I remember one user’s handle “prof”, so the profile link should be https://codechef.com/users/prof/
What did they actually do, and how did they get so many referral sign ups within such short timespan?
