So, I was doing this [contest] called CodeLive.
- There is no information regarding who is organizing this contest. What is the prize money etc.
- This contest is about writing wrong codes. How? Test data is wrong, setters have assumed something and written codes. Now, we here have to predict what mistakes author might have done here and write wrong codes.
- This contests organizers, I think, want to create a record for writing most ambiguous questions in the world.
- Even if the questions were correct and non-ambiguous who gives such kind of easy/standard problems in a 12 hour contest.
Over and over again, such kind of contests bring the same question to my mind. “Why doesn’t codechef do a background check on the organisers?”
“What doesn’t codechef moderate what kind of contests are being organised on it’s platform?”
I certainly would love to hear from what CodeChef people have to say in regards to this?
