While doing virtual contests, why is it designed such that the server runs the "MAIN TESTS" instead of "PRETESTS" for the submissions? Thing is we come to know whether our solution will pass the main tests there itself and it gives the competitor undue advantage. I feel it should run Pretests first if you are participating virtually to give you a better feel of the contest.

Hello guys,

What I felt I needed to track my growth is a graph that keeps track of how many submissions I do in a given time frame. So I wrote a JAVA code that calculates the number of submissions I did (you can choose the x axis range. It can be per day for 50 days or per week for 50 weeks or whatever). This project is available for everyone. Just mention your "frequency required" and your handle and behold, it gives you your performance. It counts unofficial submissions too. Calculates how many submissions you did and in that how many were correct. Some error handling or exceptions were not done. Sorry for that part.

Please tell me if either you want to improve this or you have some issues. Also tell me if this feature is already there somewhere else. Hope everyone gains out of it!

EDIT 1: Project updated with better GUI.

EDIT 2: Minor bug corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks to JohStraat

EDIT 3: Minor bug fixed. SourceForge link is outdated. Will be updated soon.

I submitted a solution for the problem "http://codeforces.com/problemset/problem/14/B" Though the solution has a logical bug, It ran perfectly in my system (gave a output) but when submitted here it gave a runtime error. This happens sometimes with my friend also here. Can anyone help me with how this happened.

Submissions: http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11125428 (without '#define's)

(All other submissions) http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11123710 http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11123757 http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11123811 http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11123825 http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11124124 http://codeforces.com/contest/14/submission/11125233

Thanks in advance
