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
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.
You can also refer this blog for more info.
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.
