Hourrank-5 was extremely competitive, among top 10 codes, 3 got their last problem accepted in very last minute. And it was really nice to see CF founder Mike in the leader-board.

Hourrank-6 is scheduled on March 1, the problem-setter is Errichto, hope you will join.

    Why it is being held on 1st of every month? It clashes with Hacker Earth Monthly easy rounds. :/

Why ratings are updated so slow?

    That is better for me, I had desperately contest :D

    The tasks were nice, I like the third problem ! Also I think it was great challenge for everybody and HourRank becomes traditional in your calendars. I am waiting next round and hope better result :)
