MikeMirzayanov's blog

By MikeMirzayanov, 6 years ago, translation, In English,

With the help of some experienced and respected members of the community (thanks!) there was formulated a rule that allows a third party code to be used under certain conditions. Please read carefully the text.

The following text will go as part of a renewed competition rules. The closest contest will be held already on the updated rules. Thus, there are about two days for further details, if something is unclear.

Solutions and test generators can only use source code completely written by you, with the following two exceptions:

  1. the code was written and published/distributed before the start of the round,
  2. the code is generated using tools that were written and published/distributed before the start of the round.

Any usage of third-party code should not violate the right holder’s license or copyright. Remember that published code is not always free to use! At the request of the right holder, any code that violates the license or copyright may be considered as violating the rules.

All the changes in the code from exceptions 1) and/or 2) must be made solely by you.

If there are any doubts about the time of publication, possible collaboration etc., a participant will have to prove his/her complete innocence by presenting compelling and satisfactory evidence.

Currently, the only reliable proof is the presence of code on the Internet and the presence of the used edition in the cache of well-known search engines.

For example, this rule accepts the use of the code from the website http://e-maxx.ru/ if the code was written and published/distributed before the start of the round. With the help of search engine caches, it can be easily shown that such code doesn't violate the rules. Similarly, it is permissible to use the code from a book/article that was published before the contest. On the other hand, using team reference code (for example, prepared for ACM-ICPC World Finals) is not allowed if there is no reliable and objective way to prove that the code was written before the contest.

This rule doesn't loosen the rules about prohibiting of communication, discussion, or any other form of communication between the contestants on any topics about the problems during the round.

Sorry if this is already answered in the text above, I'm not quite sure.

In a number of contest websites (including TopCoder and here on Codeforces), after a contest finishes, the source code for each submission is viewable by any member. Is this considered "published/distributed" code? (e.g. does this rule mean that all contestants can use past submissions of every other contestant?)

    Generally speaking, no, authors do not have obligation to release their code into public domain, they only provide unexclusive license for TopCoder

Do I understand it right? Presence in cache of well-known search engines is mandatory for a proof to be considered reliable, isn't it?

What about the Wayback Machine (archive.org)?
Is it reliable enough?

    It is not polite
    (and does not serve well to the community)
    to downvote a comment without any useful reply.

          Downvoting with explanation is supportive and responsible
          (but yes, it is risky because your explanation comment can be downvoted itself).

          Downvoting with no useful explanation is just harming another person's contribution score without taking any responsibility or risks for that.

          That's why I call the latter behaviour coward and irresponsible.

            Okay so this is just arguing for the sake of it, but...

            1. Contribution score doesn't matter.
            2. "Coward" means one is afraid to take a risk. While indeed downvoting doesn't take any risks, people don't downvote comments because they are afraid of taking risks. People downvote comments because they are wrong, offensive or just plain garbage.

              Then why not to explain the reason of downvoting in a couple of words?

              Otherwise, how an author (of a downvoted message) is expected to learn what exactly is "wrong, offensive or [inappropriate]" about his/her comments and why it is considered wrong?

              (I think the practice of explained downvotes would significantly decrease the total number of "wrong, offensive or just plain garbage" comments because their authors had a chance to learn community rules faster: what is considered bad in this specific community, and why.)

              I understand that there are obvious cases (such as offensive comments) where explanation is not needed. But in this specific case it was not obvious (and it is still not obvious). Not for me, at least.

              "Coward" means one is afraid to take a risk.

              Agree.

              And this actually does not cover ones who are not afraid to take the risks but just too lazy busy to explain themselves.
              On the other hand, I would not call such behaviour responsible (giving to the community is important, just taking from it is not good).

              It's often the case that some very genuine comments get downvoted suprisingly. Even some contest announcements get so many downvotes. Do you think those announcements are wrong, offensive or just plain garbage?

          (A bit more detailed answer. Back to the original issue.)

          A bad thing -- as I see it -- is that I was left alone with my downvoted comment and without important information.

          Specifically, I still have no idea why the original comment was downvoted.

          I do not have information, neither about what exactly was bad about that my comment, nor about who downvoted it (so that I could ask them personally).

          How should I learn from my mistakes in such situation if I do not understand what exactly my mistake was?

          In my opinion, sharing information which allows other members to learn is a crucial thing for a community.

            I was also very confused by your comment downvotes, i undestand the way you fell, and really appreciatte the fact that you are not giving up and blaiming youself. People downvote maybe just to feel better and harm others, idk.I see many guys explaining their solution to problems that are not in editorial and require some advanced knowldge getting downvoted. That's the way things are, nothing to do about that. MAYBE I WILL GET DOWNVOTED TOO,tring to keep your side.

Please clarify the message that is sent to users. I don't know where to "write a comment to post about the round with all the details". If this is the right place, please re-evaluate my solution for contest 919. The system claims neutron-byte/34741180 is similar to czommerfelds/34745389. The solution is very simple so it is no surprise it would be similar. Also the first result on Google for "c++ sum of digits" yields the same function http://www.sanfoundry.com/cpp-program-display-sum-of-digits/. Thank you. Best, Christian

I received a message from CodeForces after round# 464 that my solutions for A,B and D have been plagiarised. The solution to D was DSU and code was available on HackerEarth link for D's code. Problems A and B were trivial, I think because of similar template the solutions have been caught. The template which I use is really common. The codes for A and B were of <10 lines and hence the similarity. Kindly look into the matter.The variable names which I use are really common amongst the programmers hence the similarity.

This is a brute force solution and there was a similar problem "Palindromic Supersequence". Also if the members of the same team gets the same solution I recommend giving time to the involved participants to make changes in their code as the solutions are constructed while sitting in the same room. This type of instance is highly regretted and will be careful for the next time.

Sorry, for being irresponsible. Yesterday in the "Educational Codeforces Round 42 (Rated for Div. 2)" I unintentionally used ideone as my system compiler wasn't working fine.I forgot to change the visiblity settings of ideone and someone intentionally misused my code. I would take care in future to not repeat this. my ideone code link during the contest is https://ideone.com/8vObjQ I saw the users profile with whom my code coincided(as said by you) ,his every solutions had been skipped which means he has a habit of copying.

FOR EDUCATIONAL ROUND: 42 ( The latest one)

I received a mail about violating the rules of the contest, by copying the code. But I have conclusive evidence that I had taken the code from a AC code of another problem, 908F. If u want I can link the solution here, from which I took the code. However, it was present BEFORE this contest began. So I am not sure how this can be a violation of the rules. It's the setters fault that the problem was exactly the same.

My solution : http://codeforces.com/contest/962/submission/37168611 The code I took it from: http://codeforces.com/contest/908/submission/33800403

I too had a AC code to this problem:908F (http://codeforces.com/contest/908/submission/33824171) But that got some error, so I decided to take another code.

Please nullify the claim that I collaborated with someone else during the contest. It is pure coincidence that they took the same code.

hello codeforces, i had a message after Codeforces Round #481 (Div. 3) which says that your solution 38168041 for the problem 978B significantly coincides with solutions mithun_rahman/38167870, codefresher/38168041.i want to say that this is just a coincidence.I had evidence to prove it.But for some reason i lost it.But i want to say that this code is mine.I request you to check the code for the contest and please make it valid.I also thank you to know the rules.and please don't block my account...

My solution 38295464 for the problem 984D significantly coincides with solutions yqdjl4/38292975, xiaowuga/38295464. I think the idea of this problem is relatively simple, the code is short, the possibility of the code similar is very great, I see the idea of the code is almost the same, this question is I think independently, I hope to restore my ranking,

    This question is not difficult, It doesn't need any algorithm. This problem needs to be preprocessed.I do not have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition.But I stayed up all night playing this game and seriously ponder every question. I don't want to be skipped this contest.please!!!!!

Your solution 38659699 for the problem 981A significantly coincides with solutions i_wanna_work_at_google/38659167, tushar_2658/38659699. 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.

    Solutions are the same. By default some online IDE (like Ideone.com) publish codes. BTW I find it extremely weird or even dangerous. Be careful with them. Also prefer to use HTTPS in future and change passwords. Good luck.

Sorry for being irresponsible. In 'Codeforces Round #498 (Div. 3)', I used Ideone Online Compiler and forgot to change the default settings to private access. My ideone link during the contest is — https://ideone.com/BcjYgN. My code was used by someone else intentionally. I also saw the user's profile and observed that his submissions in past few contests have also been skipped. Maybe he had copied other user's solutions as well. Also I submitted my solution for the problem 1006D before this person. I am innocent and would take care in future not to use ideone during live contest.

Hi Codeforces, yesterday i participated on Codeforces Round #503 and I managed to solve 3 problems.

Unfortunately this morning when I woke up to check the results, i received a message from the system saying that this two submission 41488655 and 41489033 are the same.

I cannot deny that they look exactly alike. But when i did the third problem my IDE (CodeBlocks crushed) and i was forced to use ideone.com (link to ideone code, made 15 hours ago) to compile my code, and probably the other guy took it from there because I don't have any idea how else could he got my code. I didn't know that others can view your solution when using ideone. :( I will never use ideone again during a contest.

Now i don't have any idea how to prove myself as being the author of the problem. But i will try at least, maybe i can still keep my codeforces account. You can see for sure that the other guy copy pasted the problem. The first two problems do not match mine at all. And when you look at his submissions you can see a lot of them for problem C and the difference between last two 41488455 and 41488655 is just one minute and I don't see any way he could come with a totally different solution in just one minute. The submission are completely different.

And if i was using two accounts, do you think I would have wasted time coding two different solutions for the first two problems? Also you can see that the other guy, does this not for the first time, at the last Educational round he did the same. (image proving this).

I hope this can prove my point, have a nice day and thank you for reading, at least I shared my anger with you.

[Edit] Now it seems that i don't have access to any submissions. :(

I found the problem in the compilation environment three minutes before the competition, so I used ideone. I was not used to ideone, compiled without turning off the searchable option, and was excluded this round. I am aware of my mistake. Sorry.  This may be insufficient evidence, but since most of my code so far has been written on the same template, I can show that the header, type definition, and variable declaration are exactly the same.

My source code of last round http://codeforces.com/contest/1025/submission/41833456 http://codeforces.com/contest/1023/submission/41750569

Hi,

This is regarding Round 511 Div 2. My submission, abhisheksince97/43197368 has been flagged for coinciding with solutions vbbvaddd79506/43196786, priyasen54/43197486, fibo1/43201480, gennadykorotkevichaz/43202067, cpp19/43202087, milanmas/43202887.

I can prove that the solution is mine and the others have copied it. You can open all my recent past submissions, I have used the same template for .cpp file as I have done in this one. The rest have clearly copied.

Also, the solution that I have written is available on geeksforgeeks (https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/largest-subsequence-gcd-greater-1/). This could also be the reason for the match.

I was really foolish and naive to have tested my code on ideone. Please verify that I am the true author of this solution and please let this contest be rated for me as I put a lot of effort into it. I have never done such a mistake before and wont do it ever again.

Hai sir First of all,sorry for that mistake. But there is a valid reason .We both are from the same college and we are friends.Actually ,yesterday my laptop was not working.So i just go to my friends room lalitha.There we both have solved the sum and just then ,as it is my friends laptop,she submitted first .There is also another problemin my college.Suddenly the internet stops working in sometimes.Keeping in mind that reason,i have logged out my friend account on her laptop and i have just copied the same code into my editor in my account and i submitted it as we have both solved the problem.And i can change the variables names and i can submit it,but i thought if the net stopped working ,then what i have to do? Moreover ,there are exams are going on.So we have to study for the exams .These are the reasons for that mistake. This is the first time and last time. Next time onwards ,i will not repeat this mistake. I will do on my own in my laptop.

Thank you

Dear Sir/Ma'am, My solution 49711461 for the problem 1114B was completely and solely coded by me. I've used ideone to run and test my code on some sample test cases. This solution has coincided with solution ivaan/49710829. I am completely innocent. This user handle is a total strange to me. Therefore, I request you to consider my request and look into the matter.

I received a message from codeforces system today regarding the similarity of my code with 2 other users. The reason for this may be that I was using ideone in public mode by mistake. Here are the links of my solution: https://ideone.com/s2sHpB https://ideone.com/Yax8pe https://ideone.com/9qbTAo

The only proof I can give you that I have not copied is that I coded the solution for problem for D1 and used the very same solution for D2 and got runtime error. The reason for that was the difference in array size I was using. In problem D1 I defined my array size=100 #define N 100 in my code. I submitted the very same code for problem D2 and got runtime error on a test case. I figured it out very soon due to large size constraints which the problem statement had and changed my array size by, #define N 200005

Had it been a copied code from somewhere I must have got accepted answer in first go or it would have taken me a significant amount of time to realize the error in the code.

The next proof I have is that you can see my coding style which is consistent across problems. I declare global variables with long long data type, use macros for defining array_size, #define N 200005

Request you to please give back my rating. It took me a lot of hard work and motivation to get a rank among top 1000 after such a long time.

In round 541, the problem A had a trivial one line solution, which I had not shared with anyone. There are people bound to have similar code when the solution is only one line. There has been a false positive on plagiarism. I do not have any contact with the people that have the same answer, nor have I posted the solution anywhere else. Please remove the penalties that have been placed on me.

Hello, I received this message today — "Your solution 50439498 for the problem 1130A significantly coincides with solutions lannister07/50438986, rajat_dhoot/50439498, fake12345/50446224." I did not copy anyone's code. Following are the evidences to support my stance — - You could look at any of my submission and coding style/pattern, they are same. - But the other two id's that you have provided seemed to be fake id's used for submitting and checking the solution. If you visit there other solution, you could easily make out that the entire coding style and template are different for every submission that they have made. All of their submissions are copied. So, I request the admin to ban their id. Yes, I did use ideone.com for testing my solution. I was unaware that my code could be hacked from there. Sorry for that. Though, I still wonder how they were able to hack it but anyways thanks for letting me know about such a scenario. I ensure that the mistake would not happen again. Since, I am relatively new to such contest, it would be encouraging if you could revoke penalties that have been imposed. Thanks :)

In Round 61, Question F has a simple digital DP. I didn't share it with anyone, and the question is very similar to the 1260 on BZOJ. When the title is the original question, people will necessarily have similar code. Plagiarism has a false positive. I didn't contact anyone with the same answer, nor did I publish a solution anywhere else. Please remove the penalty for me.

Hello, I received a message saying that my solution for Div2D of round #546 coincides with the code of other users. The code is clearly different and for a problem with such a short solution it is likely for the code to be similar. Please look into this.

This is not a coincidence. Sato07 is my brother's account I made and will be participating in the contest with it only. I logged out automatically after submission due to server problem I guess. I don't how I logged in the account of IBatJ. I did not know that I the account I selected was IBatJ and not Sato07. And after that it should that I did not submit the code so I resubmitted the same code.

Please don't ban me. And give my ratings back.

I will never do this again. Sorry for the two accounts and none of them is fake.

Sorry, this A question prevents me from thinking that I think it's a good code. In fact, it's awful. The game is nearing the end, my friend shared his code, I don't believe in such a long code, so I submitted the code, I forgot that the game is not over, even if there is one minute left. I forgot the spirit of the game and violated the rules of the game. The talks said that I might be titled. This is the last thing I want. I want to continue to participate in the competition.
