Attention!

Your solution 247034903 for the problem 1932D significantly coincides with solutions 247033655 and 247034903. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use ideone.com 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 http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. 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.

Respected Codeforces Community,

I have 2 accounts, one being my main (Algo_Phoenix) and other one is my alternate (Monkey_d_Luffy-19834098). In Div-3 (Round-927), I started by solving D problem and submitted. But after submitting I realized that I had been signed-in to my alternate account the whole time. I switched to my original ID as soon as I realized the fact. 247033655 (submission by alternate account) 247034903 (submission by main account)

I know that having an alternate account is illegal but it is not meant for cheating purposes or any kind of improper behaviour. As I started solving higher rating problems, sometimes, I counter some interesting problems (in problemset or while upsolving) and I have habit of experimenting with different approaches, so I don't want my main ID to have bad graph of too many wrong submissions. My alternate account is just for experimenting new approaches on some interesting problems.

My main ID has never been indulged in any unfair means and never will in future. In Div-3 (Round-925), I was unable to solve the B problem till the end; I still did not adopt any unfair practice. For me, my pride is everything.

In short, I had no intent to participate with 2 accounts, I didn't see that I was signed to my alternate account as I was in hurry. I never want to spoil the contest for the official participants. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused. If necessary, I am ready to stop using my alternate account.

Please, considering the situation, don't apply penalties on me. I assure that this will never happen again.

    I don't understand this behaviour of your submissions:
    D-Alt -> D-Main -> A-Main -> B-Main -> D-Alt (4 times) -> C-Main (2 times) -> D-Alt

    Main submission
    Alt submission

    If you had gone back to main, why switch back to alt? And why is this so different from other solutions? Why were you obfuscating your solution?

    Edit: You were trying to resubmit obfuscated D from alt again, in hope that system doesn't consider your old submission for plag check, and consider this instead. But it didn't work.

    Technically you didn't cheat, but still broke the rules. I'm not sure if anything can be done here.

      Dunno if his story is real or not but I think it can also be his desperate attempts to "hide" the first submission

      Let me explain,I was about to give contest from my main ID. I started from D. After solving D, I realised this was my alternate ID, then I switched to my main ID. I solved A, B, C there.

      Now, back to your question Why going back to alt and solve D again (if already solved it). I was frightened by the situation that I will face penalties and tried to change the variables of D.

      If I had any intention to first submit on alt then submit on main account, I would have done for C also as it was more trickier. But No, I solved C only on my main account only.

      I am really saying true thing.

        If you have done something illegal and your solution is skipped. It doesn't matter , you have done it intentionally or unintentionally.

        Good luck and be careful in next contests.

          But I have never tried to cheat. Moreover,I hate cheaters for acquiring good rank without merit. Also, I am from college, so this creates bad impression of me among my friends and companies in future.
