Delay in codechef long rating ??

More than 5 days have passed and still no update.
why is it taking so long for rating to come out ???


I think there are many cheating cases as were for the last month. So they need to be resolved before the ratings can be updated.

Actually, they are checking the cheating cases. And it’s take time. So that’s why you are not able to see the updated rating. The rating will be updated in 2-3 days.

all we can do is wait .

could it be possible that admin is rechecking the submissions for GALACTIK problem and hence this much delay this time ???

@a9393j007: the reason for the delay in the rating is that they are looking into some of the reported cheating cases and only after completely looking into them they will be updating the ranking. So it might take a day or two more. I think its not possible that they will rejudge the GALACTIK submission.

thnx for clarification @ravishanker

It’s taking too long this time. Now, even i don’t know what is the reason behind this delay. All we can do is wait… wait… and wait…

i probably need to edit my post to 5 days instead of one . :stuck_out_tongue:

We regret the delay. The ratings will be calculated on Sunday before the CookOff.

NOTE: The July Long Challenge will be updated tomorrow - Monday! We apologize for this extended delay. :frowning:

EDIT: The ratings have finally been corrected and updated. There was a bug in the previous rating calculation. The June ratings have been recalculated taking into account a few more reported cases of cheating. So you may see a slight increase in your rating points. Please send us an email to for any issues.


:slight_smile: We would certainly like too have some holidays. But, unfortunately, there is so much to be done.

Please do not get so disheartened @dcod. We truly regret the delay.

@admin Is it possible to know the reason of the delay? reply only if you dont want to keep it a secret.

Yes indeed. There is nothing to hide. We wanted to resolve all the reported cases of cheating (both in the month of June and July). Unfortunately it took long and we got busy with other tasks too. There is quite a bit on our plate. But we still regret the delay and apologize for the same. We understand that the calculation should have happened much earlier as everyone who took part is eagerly waiting for it.


And also, still missing ALL THESE EDITORIALS!! already so many days have past since contest is over…
