I have been on codechef since a long time .
Recently I started working day and night to get better at competative programming and neglected my social life compleately to achieve a lot (as you can see my dec and feb challenge scores )
Today , I received an email stating that some user’s code somehow matched with mine one in one of the problem in jan challenge in one question that contained 1.1k + accepted solutions . and thus my rating will be decreased by 275 points .
watching closely to the user’s submissions clearly shows :
he submitted the code after me ,and thus wasn’t the owner of the code
he submitted a lot of codes of diffrent logics even in diffrent languages , clearly proving what he was trying to do .
I really don’t know how he got similar code ( as I use codeblocks only ) still these prove I never cheated .
I request codechef comitee to once think on this and not to penaltise me as it takes really lots of hard work and sacrifise to attain the rating that I have achieved and punished for something that one didn’t do would really be heartbreaking moment for any programmer.
