reporting_cheaters's blog

By reporting_cheaters, history, 2 months ago, In English,

Hello everyone. I reported some cheaters in more than one occasion to MikeMirzayanov and other people via direct message and nothing happened... they just ignored me. It is very frustating that Codeforces is not emphasizing the justice and fairness of contests as other pages. Leetcode for example has a Report Cheating button if you click any source code. Why don't we have that? Here there is no easy way to report cheaters, and if you do it seems like nothing will happen. Do I really have to create a fake account and post a blog in order for someone to even notice?

And just because I hate cheaters I'll share with you some obvious cheaters I already reported several times and keep cheating ...

Global Round 7, exact same code, just changed indentation: https://codeforces.com/contest/1326/submission/73717381 https://codeforces.com/contest/1326/submission/73714727

Educational Codeforces Round 84, exact same code, they just changed ONE variable name: https://codeforces.com/contest/1327/submission/74120832 https://codeforces.com/contest/1327/submission/74119955 https://codeforces.com/contest/1327/submission/74118875

Codeforces Round #631 (this was yesterday!), exact same code, just a change of variabe names: https://codeforces.com/contest/1330/submission/75406930 https://codeforces.com/contest/1330/submission/75414709

I just selected one problem of each round, but they cheated on several problem each time, sometimes all of them.

I think that Codeforces should promote reporting cheaters and I shouldn't feel like I am bothering round coordinators due to all my ignored messages... It will be very useful to have that Report Cheating button.

UPDATE: This cheaters keep cheating! What a surprise! In the round of today (Round #632), just a couple of minutes ago, they did it again: https://codeforces.com/contest/1333/submission/75910458 https://codeforces.com/contest/1333/submission/75908368 Special thanks to MikeMirzayanov for keep ignoring this !!

Yeah, there should be an easier way to report plagiarism.

"New blog" is the Codeforces equivalent of "contact support".

    I just scrolled to the bottom of the page to find that what I always thought as "For Support" is actually "Supported By" smh -\(**)/-

    I wish at least that were true ... But as you can see, even after this they are still ignoring me. Shame on you MikeMirzayanov, I thought you cared about fairness of contests. Or at least about not ignoring users...

As you can also see here, here and in so many other posts, MikeMirzayanov doesn't care about cheaters and he has simply ignored a lot of users who only wanted to have fair contests ...

Well, ~100 upvotes later and still no answer or action from MikeMirzayanov or anyone. Don't you see they really don't care about cheaters?

After this, maybe they should remove the "When you take part in individual contests, don't talk about the problems with other contestants, don't use somebody else's code or insert it into your solutions". What do you think?
