This user Mhmd_Bakr was recently skipped in 186942021, yet STILL in competition. So in total he solved only 2 questions in Div2 #841 with rank 4898. Yet, in his contests bar, Though it shows he solved 2, The rating change is still +87 and rank 1842 as if he had solved 3 and new rating 1345. Please, re-update this cheater's rank or skip his all 3 solutions so he gets penalised for his wrong doings! It may have also happened for other cheaters who had been skipped manually. Thanks! ✪ω✪
UPD: A lot of time passed. yet his rating change and rank are not correct, I think other people's rank is harmed by this. I hope a moderator re-corrects this cheater's rank and rating change. Thanks ✪ω✪
LOL! The cheater-gang are down-voting using fake accs as blog went from +80 to +54. Actually, my contribution is still +114 which means the ill posed cheater is using temp accounts.
UPD :: The cheater deliberately down-voted one comment for redc which included his different accounts, that were SKIPPED 12 times, so let me put redc's comment content here as ID for the dumb cheater Mhmd_Bakr

@ MikeMirzayanov and all moderators here, please fix that bug it seems common and lots of time passed. Another similar case reported by Muhammad_Aneeq and Busted for Sir_Ahmad_Imran in Polynomial Round(div1+2). It's strange tho skipped, but they get the same old incremental in points before SKIP ? Please, look into it. I suggest rolling back the ratings and correct those cheater ranks as they disrupt the standings. Thanks! ✪ω✪
The downvote is probably from the cheater who got notified since you mentioned him lmao
Nope. It's mine.
i downvoted. sorry, but there's not enough proof that this person cheated. we should let this person go.
Really? 12 skips aren't an evidence? I think you need visit an optometrist then!_
Thanks ✪ω✪ All that -129 were mine too ✪ω✪
what are you talking about your contribution is positive UPVOTE SO I CAN HAVE POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION
IT LOOKS SO COOL — PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
DOWNVOTING IS FOR BAD
I am bad so I downvote you ✪ω✪
I think so
They strike again by their downvotes. It was +83 yesterday
Mhmd_Bakr What have you done in this world for a Japanese person to talk about you dude ?
You can check here. He had been skipped 12 times on different accounts! Truly shameless cheater CHEATER
So if he had been skipped, it means that he was cheating ? all of the 12 times ?
12 skips are a coincidence or what? His codes are too weird, certain obfuscator, why would anyone need to comment fibonacci code in the midst of solving a problem in a live contest lol
Sir I'm not defending him here, I'm just asking because I needed to Know what is the real meaning of being skipped.
It means your solution had been found to be too similar to someone , getting a warning message(yes false positives can occur, but rare) or another user reported you with enough evidence and a moderator skipped you manually. It generally means cheating and after 4 skips or so, account gets banned like his past account mohamedbakr
OMG You found his past account too !!
Yes. It was easy since the same name and same coding style. I only visited his organization and found that acc

Hello thanks for trying to collaborate in catching cheaters, but sorry this info is wrong. You pinged innocent people who are in different faculties Culture and science city, Alexandria University and other than his organization FCI Kafrelsheikh university Also he previously put his photo on Mhmd_Bakr and it is not the one you mentioned
Only 3 and 4 belong to him among with AlgoTurtle all those were assigned to his organization FCI Kafrelsheikh university
I understand that. Done.
Instead of number 3, It's AlgoTurtle. I don't think such a noob has an account on codeforces registered from 4 years. 100% Impossible XD
LOL! I agree.
Its too late already this bug should have been solved till now :(
Awfully, it hasn't been solved yet. Those cheaters still enjoy their cheating points :-(
can you make another blog? For some reason cf is taking longer time to moderate with each contest
I think this blog addresses the issue well. Why repeat words
calm down it is intentional. saw similar case half year ago
O.O How? So cheaters cheat, get skipped and still get the points? xD Why skipped verdict from the beginning then?
MikeMirzayanov Is it the christmas gift for cheaters to still have the points tho being skipped ? Please, review the cases mentioned in the blog, they mess the standings somehow! Thanks ^_^
I don't know why but its too late already :|
Yeah It's very strange. Even this blog is getting downvoted it was +83 yesterday. It's sad there are lots of cheaters :-(
LOL! The child cheater is downvoting as blog went from +80 to +54. Actually, my contribution is still +114 which means the ill posed cheater is using temp accounts XD
Thanks Heap, you are really good researcher!!
Thanks ✪ω✪ We should always use our skills in such a way that helps the community making our great codeforces more better and fair environment ✪ω✪
You are right! These are new year gifts for cheaters .D
I think it's like April fools so that dumb cheaters think they actually got the points haha XD ofcourse it is gonna be corrected (hope so)
xD.d , I hope so too.
Dear tmamdli!! LOL! You were saying somethings...
Wow Eagle-Eye! You knew it happening XD That's why you reported him earlier XD
Yes! xd I was already trying to explain this situation.
3 more rounds passed and cheaters still had undeserved points tho skipped :-(
comment just to add this in recent actions
Tnk yuo vro! ✪ω✪
Awfully, no response from admins and still cheaters enjoy their pts! :(
I have also tried to contact them in DM but unread yet
we can do nothing but wait
Oh! Bro So Nice of you! ;)
Also check for Sir_Ahmad_Imran.He was skipped from Polynomial Round 2022 (Div. 1 + Div. 2, Rated, Prizes!) but he still got 30 extra + so kindly roll back the ratings and correct it. Thankyou
Ok updated the blog. Thanks
Will it matter if I submit someone else's code after the contest is over?
AFTER the contest, no problem. But why? Solve it on your own ,maybe u need try another approach time complexity or sth
I found a set of hack case and I want to test if it holds
Yeah I sometimes do that, but usually I clone contest to a mash-up. Good luck anyways!
Hey Heap_OverFlow since last few contest questions are unrated do you think they are working on removing cheaters or just slow?
I think for any contest whose rating changes is published, Removing cheaters is already done, so for questions which didn't get a rank like 1400 or 1200, etc.. it is just slow
Last EDU is yet to do systests, plag check and publish ratings
this entire blog is very clown
Catching cheaters who spoil the platform is clown? ok. What's the point of skipping cheaters if the system would grant them the same rating change as someone who didn't cheat!
I'll correct: this blog is clown
Anyways, thank you for upping the blog ✪ω✪. Hope Sir MikeMirzayanov gives that cheater what he deserves of minus. How solve 2 and get +87! (lucky cheater)
I thought you do a good job!
can you add and promote Cheaters_Hunter blog as well
I did, but he deleted it.
Still +87 for the cheater in that Div2 #841 tho he solved only 2!
