I am a big fan of rajat1603. However I can see that he has stopped competing on any OJ since the beginning of this year.

Is he taking a break or will he never come back to CP?

Lol. People have other things in life besides CP you know? He is now studying in university and his grades sure matter more than his leisure activities.

    I don't think someone can become red by considering CP as a leisure activity.

He set problems in codechef contests.

His last contest is a month and a half ago. That's not quitting by any standard

      You're right. He definitely decreased his involvement by a lot. But I still don't think it can be called quitting.

    I guess you are wrong. I searched about amit_swami, he is another guy. I have even seen his fb profile. I think rajat1603 is off grid, for some reason.

    Keep in mind that what you are doing here is basically accusing other person (or even multiple people, if there is real owner of the account involved) in cheating.

    That's not a great thing to do, unless you have some decent evidence — which you can then provide right there in your comment.

    I have strong reasons to believe that your statement is wrong. One can already start to suspect that it isn't the case after exploring codes by these two contestants and noticing that they are using quite different style. Not a proof of anything, but I doubt that Rajat would be putting so much effort into it — unless he has no better things to do at all.

      Although this is not cheating but isn't it wrong to take a place in official Div2 standings even though you already have a Div1 account .

      I am talking about this guy https://codeforces.com/profile/Jeel_Vaishnav

        It is questionable if it is "cheating" — depending on what is your definition of "cheating". It is clearly against the rules, since rules do not allow you to have multiple accounts at Codeforces. Usually nobody cares and nobody puts any effort into fighting it — but sometimes things like this still happen.

        When I was saying "accusing in cheating" in my comment above, better wording would've been "accusing in violating rules".

          It is clearly a cheating. They claim a result they don't deserve (for participating in Div2/Div3) and steal other's place. You can even take contest simultaneously with two accounts XD

          If random unrated ones start to claim Div2 win for consecutive 5~10 times, or there are bunch of LGM account from unknown person, then people will start to care.

          nobody puts any effort into fighting it

          I want to fight this very much, but I have limited time and energy.

Haha, this looks to me like a stereotypical Quora question xD. "Why did Brian Bi reject offer from blahblah?" / "What Thomas H.

If you are getting "Quora Digest" that include some maths or CS topics then you will understand xD

        LOL. That's so true. I laughed even harder when I saw that the Indians fielded the most number of teams in the Singapore Regional last Saturday and their best team only solved one problem. Somehow, the country that is the most fanatical about CP is the worst performing. LMAO.

CP is so hyped up in India, but yet the performance of their contestants is so bad. Seriously, do you all solve 1 + 1 problems all day long?

            Yes, the present state of CP among high school students in India is bad right now. However Codechef is trying to improve that right now.

            As far as Singapore Regional is concerned all the teams were from a single college (something RMK College).

            There are multiple reasons why India lacks at international front as far as ICPC is concerned.

            The major difference between people winning medals at WF and the teams from India is that teams from India are usually just concerned about just qualifying to the WF's. What happens there doesn't matter. ICPC WF guarantees job opportunities. Writing just ICPC World Finalist(without a medal) on your Linkedin profile might be a matter of shame for some guy representing say ITMO but is a matter of immense pride for someone from India. :P

            That being said, if you are thinking that what this guy has done in his life, except commenting about the entire state of CP in India and putting up a useless blog post -> nothing.

          In India, competitive programming does not have that much of an awareness among high schoolers, compared to the countries that perform relatively well at IOI/ICPC. Stuff like this needs to be imbibed at the grassroots level.

          Initiatives are being taken, and slowly we will get there. The scenario is probably much better than what it was a few years ago, and a lot of Indians are coming up the ladder. (You are commenting on a inquisitive thread about an Indian!)

          I'd think twice before randomly criticizing a country. But oh well, you're just another fake account that spews shit everywhere.

            In Slovakia, competitive programming has no awareness among common high schoolers — I only got into OI after I decided "well, I have no idea what this is but I'm going to try it". I didn't know about standard input for months afterwards! There are a select few schools where students know what it is, and those who start going to various related camps as young kids naturally hear about it, but other than that, it's a complete unknown.

                  I read a Quora post about some Indian who went to the IOI (Pushkar Mishra I think) and he described his preparation, including some kind of IOI training camp. So I think there is at least that.

        Yes yes and yes. He is the only person right now from a country of 1.2 billion people who is eligible for WF's and is red on CF(consistently). So him being a contestant will definitely change the dynamics of a regional from which a team with okay-ish players is trying to qualify to WF's.

          tourist's institute won even when tourist wasn't there. Not to discredit tourist contribution, but ITMO have 7 wins with the second only having 4 wins, so assuming ITMO did not win the 2 times tourist compete, they will still have the most wins in the world.

        considering there's 8 teams that qualify for the whole final(last year), it does seems to change the chances quite a bit. Though, I don't see how does knowing this information helps in your preparation or training.

    Yeah, this is a pretty stereotypical question. But I think Quora provides a platform to connect with these people and ask questions which otherwise you could probably never ask them.

    But there is also a thing like learning from the masters of the craft.So if someone asks "How Alon Amit got a deep understanding of analytic number theory?" then there is a pretty good chance that he might give some tips which are useful for the person asking the question.
