Hello Codeforces!

Greetings from DJ Codestars, the official Coding committee of DJ Sanghvi College of Engineering.

We are back with a very unique and interesting coding contest: CONSIZE 2.0, a 3-hour-long Code golf contest!! Here, participants will be given 3 hours to solve 5-6 problem statements, with increasing difficulty.

The twist here is that your score is inversely proportional to the length of your code!

The problem statements will be themed around your favourite video games to make things even more interesting. Stand a chance to win super exciting prizes, goodies, and subscriptions!

Date: Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 2:00 pm IST

Duration: 3 hours

Contest link: https://www.codechef.com/CNSZ2022

    Indians are lazy, they don't want to put in the work to send you the prizes. TOO MUCH WORK

    Due to the high conversion charges, we did not want to dilute the amount the winners received so we thought it would be best if we gave goodies only to the people within the country. I hope this sounds reasonable. We are constantly trying to get more sponsors to increase pool for cash and prizes so that these conversion charges don't pose an issue anymore.

For the question Dock Ock, I can't see the character count of the correct submissions. Is there a bug in the checker? Please look into it.

    Yeah all the correct submissions have gotten 1 point. I was only able to check my character count by clicking on my submission.

      Yeah I saw that, but do they all have the same character count? Otherwise the score should be different ig.

      The scores are updated but the leaderboard still shows the previous scores. Any update on that and the prizes?

        The leaderboard is updated, so are the scores. The sum of scores across problems is same as total score in the leaderborad.

          Um, not sure if it's a bug but the sum of scores of the 6th and the 9th place doesn't add up equal to the total score, you might want to check that. Anyways, this was an amazing contest and I had a lot of fun.
