Your solution 234066619 for the problem 1901B significantly coincides with solutions stingspree/234066619, adityasingh99/234071938, Vishal_Kr_Maurya/234109185. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use with the default settings (public access to your code). If you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition, write a comment to post about the round with all the details. More information can be found at Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked."

This is the message I got today that my B problem solution was skipped. I am very disappointed as I have never cheated on CodeForces, nor have have written the code in some public IDE. The second problem was a very simple one and I solved it within 25 minutes of the contest along with the A problem. I even solved it before the other accounts mentioned in the system generated message from CodeForces, so I have no clue how my solution was skipped. I have even mailed MikeMirzayanov, adedalic, BledDest with no response, so I am writing this blog. 1901B - Chip and Ribbon was the problem and 234066619 was my submission. Hope this blog reaches the right people!
