Today when I logged in to my CodeChef account and looked for the upcoming contests, Cook-off had been removed and was not visible. If anyone has an update, do let us know!

Yes, due to a shortage of good hard problems, we will be skipping this Cook-Off.

Is Codechef Sept Cook-off also cancelled? :)CodeChef_admin?

Because it's not visible in the contests section, and I guess shiviDON's comment is becoming real :)

Thanks!

Codechef is just trash, all cheaters are there, and now they don't even have problems with the contests; they remove the contests from that section thinking no one would notice, two cook-offs have been cancelled, and many starters became unrated for div2, complete waste platform, close CC.

    I think you missed the whole point of 'Hey, we don't have enough good quality problems, it's better to postpone the contest instead of putting some random bad problems', which I think shows that coordinators care about the platform.

      I also agree with your point. The problem is with the cheaters, not the coordinators; I also wanted to know if they will reschedule the contest or have completely cancelled it.

I had written a post in the discussion forum requesting for the round to be rescheduled because of its clash with the common prelim. of the 3 Indian ICPC regionals.
The Post.

    Quite possible that they are planning to reschedule it to another day!

    Thanks!
