Let us know, if you think you are being wrongly penalized due to the false positive that MOSS has thrown. However, before you do that kindly go through our CodeChef Code Of Conduct and our blog post on the cheating saga below and make sure that knowingly or unknowingly, you have not violated any of those points:

Please do not write back or approach us if you have violated any of the rules. If you do so, your explanation won’t be considered and we might also block your account without any intimation. Additionally, ensure that you don’t repeat the mistake as your account will be deactivated if caught on second instance.

Note: If your solutions of other contests have been also removed than it is due to being caught under plagiarism for those contests as well.

Admin check it and recover my rating…

What should the admin check, that you are a coder who believes in plagiarism and one who copy-pasted a solution in a contest to get an AC?

Correct me if I am wrong!
