      May I know the reason behind it? Kinda odd to have 6 problems for a "week" of code in my opinion

        Somewhat irrelevant, but many older Week of Codes also included 6 or even 5 problems.

Hope to see some good problems this time! The last week of code wasn't up to the mark.

Does anyone know how I can check how much memory my program is taking at Hackerrank ?

And also, what's with everyone giving hints and discussing freely at the discussion section of the problems ? That seemed really bizarre.

    Some people really think that discussion != revealing of solution and tests. And "if admins think that my comment bad — they'll remove it".

    Actually more than 10 different participants wrote me personal messages about 'hint, not solution', it very suprised me.

    It seems that this problem can be solved if functional of 'questions to admin during contest' will be separated from problem discussion, that will be closed during active contest.

      I read most of your comment, and I have to say, I like your jokes :)

      On a side note, can Admin Shafaet clarify what's legal on the discussion and what's not? I would seriously consider quitting hackerrank at this rate.

        Honestly, a lot of the comments actually seem to go even against the basic guidelines on the sidebar:

        1. Each day's submissions will run on additional testcases at 07:00 UTC.
        2. For every live challenge, max score reduces by 10% at 07:00 UTC every day.
        3. Plagiarism or any form of cheating will result in disqualification.
        4. Leaderboard time is calculated as latest code_submit_time
        5. Refrain from posting solutions/testcases on discussion forum.

        Honestly I'd say posting hints also should be considered to be posting solutions.

          I completely agree with you. But I would like admin to clarify on debatable issue like posting hints, or time complexities and also enforce better regulations on cheating.

Well, I understand that there are no lower limit for amount of hidden tests. But there weren't hidden tests at all in problem 'Geometric trick' — is it good idea for that type of contest?

    Well, it did greatly lessen the amount of people bragging about their "sufficient" algorithm in the discussion...

      why not have full(maximum cases) pretest, but also tricky hidden test? This will solve both problems, no?
