EDIT: Thanks for all the help, his rating has been updated and solutions unskipped

Okay so this was my solution: https://codeforces.com/contest/1328/submission/74415216

And this is the other guy, whom I do not know at all. agrawalamritanshu82 https://codeforces.com/contest/1328/submission/74481132

Our solutions do match almost exactly the same, however neither do I use Ideone or any platform where my code can be leaked and neither have I given my solution to that person. It seems like a coincidence since the solution was simple that it matched almost exactly. Now I do kind of feel bad for that guy since his solutions got skipped due to this, what can I do in this case?

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I think the code was simple that there is small but not zero chance to have 2 code similar to each other

•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 My solution is not skipped. The other guy, however, got his solutions skipped since it was a rated contest for him I feel bad, so if there is any way to fix this that's why I am asking for advice.

Write some none-meaning function and put them in fron of main() like this inline void JustToAvoidSkippedAnother() { while (0 > 1); } inline void JustToAvoidSkippedOther() { while (false > true); } inline void JustToAvoidSkipped() { JustToAvoidSkippedAnother(); JustToAvoidSkippedOther(); return void(true); } void main() { JustToAvoidSkipped(); while (input()) { solve(); } return 0; } 
 » 3 years ago, # |   +17 same here, I write all my codes locally I don't use platforms like ideone. This was a simple coincidence, And I'm frankly surprised to see how similar our codes were.
 » 3 years ago, # |   -6 But how did you come to know that HIS SOLUTION GOT SKIPPED. Hope you both are not friends :P

•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 yeah i got a notification that my solutions were same, but mine weren't skipped since probably i submitted first
•  » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +8 They were earlier marked skipped, but now they have been counted for and so is the rating for that contest :)
