By kuroniorz, 3 months ago, ,

Hi everyone, since you all know the Google CodeJam round 1A recently concluded and top 1500 qualified to the next round. Among the people who qualified, karangreat34 (or karangreat234) was also one of them and secured rank 967 with username treewalk7 (will be proved below).

He also boasted about in a LinkedIn post that is now deleted for unknown reasons.

Now there are few things that are worrying me. Since I was sure about the ethics of karangujar and unsure about his rank, I did some research

These three (and maybe more) shashank.gupta77 , karangreat234and c_rahul have almost the same code in problem A,B,C with some added useless code like

int e1,e2,e3;
e1=0;
e2=0;
e3=0;
e3=e1+e2;


to avoid plagiarism detection.

One of these guy is our very own 6 star coder https://www.codechef.com/users/karangreat234. Now our 6 star will try to defend that he is not https://codingcompetitions.withgoogle.com/codejam/submissions/000000000019fd74/dHJlZXdhbGs3. But I can surely prove it. Our karangreat234 had username chillax23241 in qualification round of CodeJam.

Proof

Now we need to see rank of chillax23241 in CodeJam but we cant find such user. Here is a fix. Find rank of chillax23241 in this website https://vstrimaitis.github.io/google_codejam_stats/. what do we get ? Rank 967 of user chillax23241.

Now we see rank 967 in CodeJam page and we can clearly see its user treewalk7 that I mentioned above.

These guys are a shame to Competitive Programming community and I hope they will be removed from Google Codejam Round1A ranklist.

 » 3 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   -343 It is so hard to believe this. Karan has always been my motivation.There may be some misunderstanding.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +165 Yes. I can't believe this too. Karan sir is motivation of many retards like me.
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -301 Dont say wrong about the legendary coder.
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -299 he has inspired me so much
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +84 And you must be Karan.
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -9 Yeah he inspires me too. He is a great example of the things which a good programmer should not do.
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +48 Your username was creative enough to get an upvote from me xDBut like that said, such dumb noobs definitely should be banned not only from round 1A, but from every future Google Competition and every other platform he cheated on!! Such people are a disgrace to the whole competitive coding community -_-
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +30 I don't think he's going to do CP ever again
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +61 I don't know about CP, but he's definitely trying his best to get rid of this page from recent actions. Haven't you noticed how new accounts made 2-3 hours ago are asking so many doubts regarding CP by making new blogs? Now this can't be a coincidence that there is 5+ new blogs from different new accounts, and random comments everywhere "How to solve G?". XD This guy's hilarious. Even if he's not doing this, his super hardcore fans(his alts most probably) are really something else! Going this far to protect him.
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +23 Oh well, I don't think so bro, people continue to amaze me with their dumbness and shamelessness!!Someone in comments posted a link to codechef discuss, where he alleged that none of this was related to CP and everyone is defaming him with personal attacks (*facepalms*)
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 I love that you commented on this xD
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +3 Ikr
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +4 one question .....why do masters get upvotes only on whatever they type....and loosers like me get a downvote even if they type something good or useful....i am not saying that your comment is bad ..... i am just pointing out that being a looser sucks so much so that nobody respects you not even you own spirit
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 See bro, what you are saying isn't necessarily true, I can show you people rated master and being heavily down-voted if they comment inappropriate things or things most people in the community don't agree with, for instance, here's my mate ck98, check out some of his comments n you would understand what I'm trying to say and not intending disrespect to anyone, I've seen even Legendary Grandmasters getting down-voted.And yeah sometimes the community might be biased against you, but most importantly getting down votes doesn't make you a loser!! And I literally mean it, that should never affect your self respect, or in no way should you take it as a sign of disrespect from others, it's just that maybe people don't agree with your views, or maybe you told something, they think is tooo trivial and maybe everyone knows.Lastly all the best for everything, and I hope u get a lot of upvotes if that is what you really want, and once again, just don't let it affect your self-esteem or self-respect!!!
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +11 Thanks bro for the motivating speech.......I have realized that it's my bad attitude towards life that has been stopping me so far.....i have been working on it lately.....and as far as downvotes go.....i dont want any upvotes.....i was just curious whether it's general nature of people to look down upon loosers and just admire the best.....you certainly broke that misbelief of mine.....thanks
•  » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +3 Oh great to know that I could be of help!!
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -6 you are also fake aryapawn and aryanight karandi_gayazar_orz.just like your guru has 3 accounts you also have multiple accounts
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +25 Time to a find a new motivation bud
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 7 →   -59 .
•  » » 2 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   +4 I'll be completing 3 years on codeforces soon. Never seen this amount of downvotes on a comment. Proves how honest your motivator is. PS: I didn't agree on one of your Quora influencer's answers and he blocked me. Lol. How insane is that?
 » 3 months ago, # |   +105 What is a Quora-influencer?
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +297 Basically a person who has 5 or 6 star rating on CodeChef, and has only participated in Long Challenges. In most of the cases, you wouldn't find this person's presence on any platform other than CodeChef. This person generally answers questions like "How to become Red on Codeforces/Topcoder?", "How did this person become so great in Competitive Coding?", etc. Most part of their answer would have some unrelated story which motivated them to start CP and which made them realize that CP is their true love blah blah blah... Their target audience is generally low rated coders who naively believe the things they write about and blindly follow them. I do not blame them for believing these influencers, as they are new in this community. But a general advice for platform like Quora is never believe the person until you have done some background check on that person.No offence to the genuine Competitive Programmers who help others out on Quora.
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +79 My favorite quora answer ever — definitely the key to learning CP.https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-learn-competitive-coding/answer/SQ-40
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +179 Isn't that practically the entire Quora? Random bullshit written to sound interesting. Not only about CP, but anything.My favorite is this. Yeah, tourist wins because he intimidates people with late submission strategy. Not because idk, he's like really good at problem solving? Also C++ is really important for some reason. Also also, the answer has nothing to do with the actual question — there is like 2 words about career paths.
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   +29 That depends on your feed. There are pretty good people there as well, and as long as you cross off such spam for a decent amount of time and upvote the kind of answers that you learnt something from, your feed will be pretty good.
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +17 Like I_love_Tanya_Romanova,he is regularly posting inspiring things on Quora
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +19 There are definitely some good people. But I've found that it's kinda hard to control your feed, it's quite opaque. It's not like "you follow these people and these topics" and that's it, there's an algorithm that tries to be smarter than you.No matter what I did, new bullshitters kept creeping in. And I decided that it's not worth it if I have to work to keep it clean.
•  » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 That's strange. Did you try "blocking the quora user" to stop seeing such answers or maybe "downvote question" or "report the answer" ?
•  » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +10 I think we can assume that if I say "no matter what I did" that includes basic website functions :) Except reporting, I don't think I should report answers for reasons that don't actually break any rules, even if they are very stupid.I meant that new users appeared with similar content, not that the same people kept coming back. The algorithm can know for each post only the topic, author and list of people who clicked/upvoted, I don't think it's too good at measuring quality.Also I should stress that most answers that I called "bullshit" aren't like the example I gave, that was just something extremely silly. But there are a lot of posts that give the impression — sometimes very successfully — of being thoughtful, deep and intelligent, but actually are just full of mundane truths. They can trick you at first but after a while you start seeing the pattern. And how the correct strategy seems to be writing things "interestingly", having some actual insight is secondary.Maybe I just can't use the website right but looking at the number of upvotes those bullshit answers get says something too.
•  » » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 I agree, you're right.
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -32 I'm new, please elaborate on late submission strategy, thanks!
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Watch the Code Jam final streams over the past few years.
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +3 Here's an older blog from tourist explaining this.
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Nah not at all, if this is the image of Quora for you then sorry, but you just aren't using the app right
•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +24 I quit reading Quora when I realised how much bullshit there is regardless of where you go. Getting to good content there is about as easy as on 4chan, except the crap on 4chan is at least funny.
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Reddit is the best thing happend to me, I have also quite quora and have started exploring post on platforms like reddit and twitter...
•  » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +2 Reddit is also shit for everything except very small niche communities. The karma system encourages reposting what's popular and disagreements are usually solved by one half of a subreddit being kicked out by the other half and creating their own rather than just agreeing to disagree.Both Reddit and Twitter (and Youtube, etc.) also have insane content police that will ban you when enough people complain about you or if you post something they don't like, regardless if you actually broke the rules.
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Hello niggasaurus!
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -56 Yeah, agreed. But you might also wanna know that there is a thing known as self-publicity/PR; which actually instantiates to making the best possible use of your limited knowledge and promoting it as something extraordinary. Karan Gujar excels in it and get your head straight to know there is nothing wrong in it! Self-projection is of utmost important in real life as well in corporate world (the one you're probably aiming to get at sitting in front of your computer and blasting off at this one guy who got caught at cheating). Yeah he did wrong, yes he cheated but at what cost?- does he really deserve to be bombarded with such hate/lewd comments (I've seen it first hand what treatment he's been made to undergo) just because he's some guy who used PR skills(read Quora, Youtube, medium and other blogs) much better than what average you/me or Joey can? I don't think so- the poor guy has actually deactivated all of his social media right now as I type and believe me he's not the only one who'd copy codes if given a chance at an international level competition!
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +21 Stop copy pasting same comment everywhere.
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +30 Leaving the impression of an intolerable ass is not good PR.
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -30 Yes, he and people like him in every sphere of our life not only in corporate world should be bombarded with hate and lewd comments. Pls stop defending such bs act in the name of PR.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -24 I want to know too.
 » 3 months ago, # |   +131 Funny You are reporting now. He has been cheated a lot more times in codechef long contests and people reported a lot too. Everyone knows he is a cheater and pretending like a good coder posting achievements, standing etc to gain following and popularity. If you really want to learn somenthing follow good coders like jeel_vaishnav and taran_1407 for java and Rahul dugar for c++
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -90 KARAN never cheats :angry:
 » 3 months ago, # |   +145 This isn't the first time he has been caught cheating, all he does is boast his fake plagiarised achievements to get a false sense of achievement and gain popularity. Pretty sad.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +75 Yes you are right he claims to be india's best coder and gaining popularity among newbies and 3 star coders on codechef.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -115 KARAN never cheats :angry:
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -36 You'll die of laughter if you see his video on YouTube.

•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +10 He is famous with skills of retard. What more could he ask for?

•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Actually I dont know. he never shared his codeforces profile to anyone and never mentioned in his resume. His contest on codechef are mostly long challenges and finishing 1 question was a mountain task for him in cooks or lunch time. May be he can be slow or something else.
•  » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +8 B0JACK is right. You shouldn't assume too much. There are many other coders who are not ABLE to do well in short contests. That is OKAY. This is NOT OKAY. CHEATING is intolerable and more importantly, leads to that guy's own destruction anyway.

•  » » » » 2 months ago, # ^ |   +3 *dick
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -34 Um yeah he charging for his tutorials, all right. It's his choice purely based on the time and dedication he might have put up in creating those tutorials, and from what I've heard from people they aren't half as bad as what's been made out to be by you guys. Sorry to burst your shocked bubble but nothing good in the world comes free. Also so that you know he charges minimistically for his tutorials and he is not coaxing anyone to buy them
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +37 I mean, he has the right to charge money, but considering the number of quality free tutorials, it does sound like he's taking advantage of inexperienced and/or frustrated people who don't realize how much of this information is available freely.

Anyways, seen this person on Quora. His answers sounded very boastful to me, and I already suspected he became a 6-star on CodeChef due to Long Challenges only. I thought he was at best a decent coder, who was just too happy to have achieved 6-star rating. Nice work to catch the cheating.

•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +30 Well that didn't bother me much, I considered he was joking anyway. That happens too much on Quora, so I ignored that aspect. You can see similar stories of success where the person started due to nonsense reasons. But to reach 6-star on CodeChef and boast about it, is very childish in my opinion since the better you become, the.more you realise your weaknesses. While I think having a goal to reach a certain rating level is motivational, almost every Orange or Red I have seen here on CF, realise there is nothing to boast about in rating. Feeling proud to have achieved a rating is welcome, boasting about it is childish.

 » 3 months ago, # |   -98 Yeah, agreed. But you might also wanna know that there is a thing known as self-publicity/PR; which actually instantiates to making the best possible use of your limited knowledge and promoting it as something extraordinary. Karan Gujar excels in it and get your head straight to know there is nothing wrong in it! Self-projection is of utmost important in real life as well in corporate world (the one you're probably aiming to get at sitting in front of your computer and blasting off at this one guy who got caught at cheating). Yeah he did wrong, yes he cheated but at what cost?- does he really deserve to be bombarded with such hate/lewd comments (I've seen it first hand what treatment he's been made to undergo) just because he's some guy who used PR skills(read Quora, Youtube, medium and other blogs) much better than what average you/me or Joey can? I don't think so- the poor guy has actually deactivated all of his social media right now as I type and believe me he's not the only one who'd copy codes if given a chance at an international level competition!
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +17 Just because you wrote a whole paragraph which I'm too lazy to read doesnt mean you can justify cheating in any way.
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -39 Didn't justify it bro- you might wanna read it! Its in a good sense that I asked the people to leave the guy alone

•  » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -36 What if he used "I'll complain in the police for cyber bullying me" when he was actually verbally abused by hundreds of angry people like you in personal messages wherein this actually makes sense. My point being, sure he's done his cheating no doubt, but leave the guy alone, he simply just doesn't deserve this amount of hatred online as he's not the first one to do so

•  » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 He is dude, sorry but you just aren't aware of the bigger picture here! You see lots many people making fun of him here right? Just think what these people have the ability to do in private messages if they get a hold of his number (which is easily available, thanks to social media). Why do you think he deactivated all his accounts? Get aware of the world kid
•  » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 And get this straight there's no justification for online harassing (it's a real thing) whatever may be the magnitude of his crime- it just isn't worth it
•  » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   0 there are so many hard working coders who try to get decent rank on their own and some cheaters come and spoil all of these.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +83 Self-publicity is not equivalent to being full of oneself. The difference is subjective and if people think he sounds egocentric, then he does. " Self-projection is of utmost important in real life as well in corporate world ". Please reduce your Quora intake. Just because he's not the first to cheat doesn't mean anything. Try that logic for any actual crime and you'll see how dumb it is. Some people always take it too far, unfortunately. Most people will just make fun of him and meme it, all of which he deserves. People doxing him or harassing IRL are an inevitable minority. He's getting bombarded with "lewd" comments? Perhaps double-check the meaning of that word.

According to your logic, simplified, a person $X$ who's done something wrong, although not punishable offensively, shouldn't be talked against or bad off (that's human nature. Welcome to planet earth!)? Well, you're right about that and I don't disagree with you completely there, but which society have you been living in to not have seen where this wouldn't happen? Show me the light too, Senpai. Whoever this dude is deserves the shit talked about him because I believe in the good ol' saying: "You ain't right until you done it right", and anything that's wrong is in human nature to be talked shit about. You have your opinion, I have mine. You've proposed yours through a thousand or so comments round the blog, and here's mine.
•  » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   -14 Erm- maybe put forward your thoughts in a more lucid way, because I couldn't figure shit you said. Because what you mentioned my logic did not sound my logic at all. Recommend you to read the above thread completely and comprehensively before jumping in this pool of comments putting across your seemingly worthless thoughts
•  » » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +23 The main idea is, "He cheated, so he should be punished." Of course there's herd mentality here — this is how society as a whole handles cheaters, dissuading them from doing it again. The question is, to what extent should the punishment go?He has built up a strong reputation based on being skilled at CP. As it turns out, this reputation is fake. So I think it's reasonable that this reputation, and only that, should be destroyed, as it's misleading and frankly offensive to those of us who have put real work into CP. Going beyond that may be extreme, but said hateful comments ultimately have that effect.
•  » » » » » » » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Agreed 100%. This was exactly what I wanted to convey much to the disregard of some people who steered the conversation away by their non-sensical comments. In hindsight, maybe I too was at fault not being able to put across my thoughts more clearly.

He still performs well in Long challenges. He's a good guy. ".. This is the exact image I had of him. Then some facts were revealed... He has repeatedly been cheating even though he has been caught and exposed so many times. That directly affects the rating of other participants however little that effect may be. He boasts a lot about himself on social media due to which newbies may have fallen into his trap and bought his "tutorials". And most importantly he still doesn't change himself even after receiving so much bashing from the community. And now I'm even starting to think all that boasting was a marketing strategy to sell his courses. He is so shameless that he doesn't hesitate to cheat again and again even after getting caught soo many times. I don't promote harassing him, but he clearly isn't a good person for the community. HE NEEDS TO REALISE THAT HIS WAYS ARE WRONG.

 » 3 months ago, # |   0 The basic thing is that if you see his 6-star CodeChef profile, he has mostly given Long Challenges, where coders are usually found in malpractices because of the 11 days time to solve questions. Not blaming CodeChef for this but the point is that if he was as "Great" as he writes himself to be on Quora, LinkedIn, etc. he must have proven himself here by maybe being a Master or above. Guess that's not the case.

 » 3 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +45 Guys I know a lot of us here don't like him. But this is probably deviating towards bullying. People here are posting his phone number so that others can call/message and harass him. This is not cool guys. No one should be bullied. I am not defending him. All I'm saying is that there's a difference between calling out on someone/reporting them and harassing them.
 » 3 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 TO EVERYONE WHO'S TRYING TO SUPPORT KARANjust ask yourself one thing first.. What if it was Round 1C and you were the 1501st rank holder? Would you still be supporting him?If your answer is yes, then I've no idea what's wrong with you.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   0 Being the 1501th or the 10000th rank is irrelevant here. You make a good question, not against that, but, anything against the rules should be punishable by offence, needless to add, unsupported by others. CP happens to be more "light-weight", if I may say, and isn't as strict as other sports, considering CP to be a sport too (a really good mind sport, in fact).
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +2 Yes I agree that rank is irrelevant here. But his fans seem just too dumb to understand that cheating is wrong. So I am trying to help them see what could be the consequences.
 » 3 months ago, # |   +3 Lol he must have gained more publicity through this blog than he ever got by boasting about himself :P
 » 3 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +18 I saw his other submissions to the 1st problem (the 2 that received a wrong answer verdict on the third test case). It is really strange to see how this person just without any reason is changing the variable names.  int fo=0; int f1=1; int f2=3; f2=f1+fo; int tt=1; f2=f1+fo; He wrote these lines of code in the starting of his code. Can you see that writing this does not make any sense and there no other occurrences of these variables in the actual code below.  int lol1=0; int lol2=0; int lol3=0; lol3=lol1+lol2; ll i,j,k,n, ind, flag=0, flag2=0; lol3=lol1+lol2; cin>>n; lol3=lol1+lol2; And finally in his submission that passed all test cases he has changed these variable names and has written this. You cannot be a 6 star coder if you right things like these for no reason and even changing the variable names and their values for no reason. Let me show you something even more interesting : e1=0; e2=0; e3=0; e3=e1+e2; cout<<"Case #"< #define mod 1000000007 #define pb push_back #define endd '\n' #define ll long long #define mk make_pair #define fi first #define test ll int t,o;cin>>o;for(t=1;t<=o;t++) #define codejm(q,aao) cout<<"Case #"<>n;ll arr[n];loop(i,n)cin>>arr[i]; #define print(arr,n) for(ll w=0;w:: iterator itr ,it; #define mul_itr multiset:: iterator itr,it; #define se second #define pii pair #define pll pair #define loop1(i,a,n) for(i=a;i #define fs first #define sc second #define pb push_back #define eb emplace_back #define all(a) a.begin(),a.end() #define lb(a,x) (lower_bound(all(a),x)-a.begin()) #define ub(a,x) (upper_bound(all(a),x)-a.begin()) #define rep(a,x,y) for(int a=(int)x;a<=(int)y;++a) #define repd(a,x,y,d) for(int a=(int)x;a<=(int)y;a+=d) #define res(a,x,y) for(int a=(int)x;a>=(int)y;--a) #define resd(a,x,y,d) for(int a=(int)x;a>=(int)y;a-=d) #include #include #define o_set tree,rb_tree_tag,tree_order_statistics_node_update> #define o_multiset tree,rb_tree_tag,tree_order_statistics_node_update> using namespace __gnu_pbds; #pragma GCC optimize("Ofast") #pragma GCC optimize ("unroll-loops") #pragma GCC target("sse,sse2,sse3,ssse3,sse4,popcnt,abm,mmx,avx,tune=native") using namespace std; using lint=long long; mt19937 rng(time(NULL)); As you can see these 2 templates are completely different and it seems like 2 different people have written them. I just hope people like these are removed from CodeJam final standings. @karangreat34 you are a shame man.
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +3 If you can't even replace template functions with their definitions you are not good cheater either. LOL!
 » 3 months ago, # |   0 See this, there are many other cheaters too. https://discuss.codechef.com/t/cheating-in-codejam-round-1a/61743/11
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +8 Sennd a mail to codejam@gmail.com reporting all cheaters
•  » » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +1 It's codejam@google.com not gmail.com
 » 3 months ago, # |   0 So will he be disqualified from codejam?
 » 3 months ago, # |   0 eatmore have a look at this and do make sure he gets the treatment which he actually deserves. Cheating is a serious offence and will not be tolerated at any cost.

 » 3 months ago, # |   0 I feel bad for genuine people who did not qualify due to cheats like this.
 » 3 months ago, # |   +13 Hello Codeforces!I suggest it is better to run a system to against cheating,like a Chinese OJ which is called 'luogu'. （that's the rules we obey）I think this is a lesson,we should unite and against with cheatings
•  » » 3 months ago, # ^ |   +1 >forbidden private letter >opening a trumpet >Pottery BanishmentWere those rules introduced on April 1st by any chance?
