Hello Guys,

I think you all be well in this Corona Pandemic. Nowadays , I had started doing CP after a long time again. And with my as usual bad CP skills, let my rating down so many times and which also intended me to Cheat in contest to protect it (yes you read it correct, I am confessing it) . As I confessed it so now I had decided that I will not do it(cheat) anymore. But still there is question in my mind that How to overcome the fear of getting negative delta in Contest ? , which is one of the reason to cheat in a contest for most of the people or can say the only reason. I am very keen to know the solution this problem . Please Help ?

AND ONE MORE THING :

A request to my side to all so called cheaters. Please don't cheat anymore. Because more you will do it, the more it will demotivate others, as by doing so you will get positive delta but the guy who gave the contest honestly and got negative delta because of your cheating will get demotivated and he will also start cheating later on and this chain will go on endlessly..

I think you all will give a thought to my words.

Thanks

PS: Sorry for poor English.

_ Because more you will do it, the more it will demotivate others_ It actually doesn't for most of us . It motivates us to improve more and more :) . And also don't fear negative delta, How will you rise when you are afraid to fall?

Just improve yourself and then make a new account.... What is this obsession with rating change...

For me the rating is not the most important thing in codeforces, you will see that your rating will end up, before a contest it is difficult to know if you will do it well or not, but you should just jump in and not worry about the result, because the most important thing is not the rating, but learn and have fun solving problems. If you feel social pressure for your friends and the rating just create an account and do not tell anyone, so you will not have social pressure, I hope I have helped you.

    I don't care about the problems. I care about the rating. Who are you to say what's most important on cf for different people.

Take it in this way, "The more your rating decrease, the more you are motivated to give another contest, and more easy to increase rating in next contest."
