March Long Challenge 2019 - ETA for the remaining problems?

Three days into the contest, and we are still 2 problems short in the 1st Division.

When can we expect these problems to be available?

Given such a delay, is there a plan to extend the contest duration? If so, then by how much?

MATPER has been added. The Challenge problem should be added by end of day.
The contest will probably be extended by 1 day. We’ll put up an announcement confirming this soon.

NO challenge problem till now


24th CodeChef Traditions (Unoffical) -
“Never assume that we will comply with the ETA which we announce.”


Maybe add this too: “CodeChef to never provide all problems at the start of long challenge and add them later.”

A laddus point to every participant (who solved at least 1 problem) for every day a problem is not available? It would alleviate the overall anxiety, I think :slight_smile:

So far, it’s 7 laddus points for everybody in the 1st division - 3 for MATPER and 4 for the approximate one. And 4 points to the folks in the 2nd division…

All in the spirit of the 10 years anniversary!


Will wait for at least one more challenge to add this.

@admin please add the challenge problem

I don’t think this time challenge problem will be added lol XD
