### MikeMirzayanov's blog

By MikeMirzayanov, 9 years ago, translation,

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.

 » 9 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +49 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?)

•  » » 5 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -31 It is not polite (and does not serve well to the community) to downvote a comment without any useful reply.
•  » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   0 As we can see, anonymity of the voting system encourages coward and irresponsible behaviour of the voters.
•  » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   +17 What exactly is cowardly about downvoting you?
•  » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -24 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.
•  » » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   +6 Okay so this is just arguing for the sake of it, but... Contribution score doesn't matter. "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.
•  » » » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +3 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.
•  » » » » » » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +1 I completely agree with you bro.
•  » » » » » » » 4 years ago, # ^ |   0 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?
•  » » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   +14 Stackoverflow tried to solve this problem by removing 1 point from your reputation when you downvote something.
•  » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   -10 (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.
•  » » » » » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   +8 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.

 » 5 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 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.

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/33800403I 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.

Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties.I made this code before starting the contest https://www.acmicpc.net/source/8705303 and lots of people could see and also I shared with lots of friends already.

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.
•  » » 5 years ago, # ^ |   +14 As you pasted, "unintentional leakage is also a violation", so you aren't innocent according to the rules. Pay more attention next time and move on.

 » 4 years ago, # | ← Rev. 4 →   +5 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. Now it seems that i don't have access to any submissions. :(

But suddenly today i got a message from your team that one of my solution match with some other user. Actually yesterday i used ideone with the privacy public by mistake. I think my solution might be leaked due to that problem. Sir/Madam, I am wrongly penalized as that was done unintentionally but i make you sure that mistake will not be done next time.

 » 4 years ago, # |   0 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/41750569I will pay great attention to the use of ideone in the future.

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/).

I wrote a very basic solution for that problem which was a short cut method, and it may possibly match with someone else's because no particular algorithm was applied in it and I used basic c++ syntax.

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 As for the 1278c question, my classmate asked me the idea, and then he typed it again after he understood it. When he submitted it, he mistakenly copied my code. Later, he resubmitted a code he wrote himself. I hope the organizer can forgive me
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I'm sorry for my negligence. Today I receive a talk to my account. Attention!Your solution 67232801 for the problem 1278D significantly coincides with solutions 404_Not_f0und/67232801, Performanceartist/67233518. 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. More information can be found at http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.I thought for myself and got the solution to the problem 1278D. Just use and "dsu" to optimize the brute force algorithm. But I was not familiar with and made a stupid mistake, so I shared the opinion to my friend. Before he answered me, I found the mistake, corrected it and submitted my solution. I was not aware that my friend hasn't completed his solution and he just corrected and sumbitted the solution I sent to him. I don't know the rules and shared my solution freely. I promise I won't share my solutions with anyone in the future.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I have made a big mistake and i really feel ashamed of it. I promise it won't happen again. I want to apologize for violating the rules of the community and contest. Sorry for everything sir, please let me continue with my profile for participating here. Sorry.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I don’t know who is this guy kjnkjn and i'm sure that my solution 67730219 for the problem 1279Bis my code
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Sir the code I have written is mine I have used ideone because geeks for geeks ide was not working so I don't know who the other people are but that was my own code
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 4 →   +1 Respected sir MikeMirzayanov, padamprakash2502 is my another account and in the contest #611 i submitted the same solution for problem 1283c which you can verify by checking submission time of two which is less than a minute .i was genuinely not aware of the fact that we cannot submit same solution from two different accounts. This was unintentionally generic mistake for which i am really sorry . And as per the rules i admit my mistake and will not use the account my another account padamprakash2502 further . i will take care of all the rules from next time onwards. Again i am genuinely sorry. Kindly do the needful and please update my rating as i have been using this account for participating in contests.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 I used another account to submit the solutions of 1283B and 1283A. I did not know this was against the rules and I am sorry, I will not repeat this in the future
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +8 Is there some requirement now to post your sob stories and/or deeply heartfelt apologies under this blog? I for one am sick of seeing this blog pop up every week with some "most esteemed sir MikeMirzayanov, i am so greatly sorry but i didnt know it was against the rules to ask soluton from frends during contest" shit.NOBODY CARES about how sorry you are. This blog is for when you were actually unfairly disqualified (i.e. used code from a public source and the plagiarism detector picked it up).
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 Hi Mike! I recently got this message : Your solution 68252538 for the problem 1287A significantly coincides with solutions dejavucoder/68252538, Syedshajib_CoU/68259314. 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. More information can be found at http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.I typed the code myself and submitted at 19:55 (IST) and got AC in the first attempt. The other person got AC at 20:47(IST). He took more attempts. His final solution is different from his previous solutions but his code is different and shorter than mine. I think either he wrote the solution on his own or he copied someone else's solution. It's not mine.I checked my history and saw that I had public mode on on IDEONE. I apologise for that and will make sure that I switch to private mode if I use Ideone in future contests.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +12 Your codes are totally equal. Same codestyle, same variable names, even // end of if comment is present in both solutions. He definitely copied it. Probably that's because he was kind of upset he couldn't solve that task on his own and was about to lose his rating. So he found your code on ideone and copied it.That's no problem if you got this warning once, if you did not send your codes to other people intentionally. Just be careful next time. You can use, for example, cpp.sh to compile and run your CPP code online. You won't forget to make your code private just because this service doesn't have this feature.

 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   -8 Hello sir! My cf handle is harit29gangwani and I got caught on plag check since it was me submitting codes on both accounts, harit29gangwani and harit29dec04 Actually I just remembered today that I had an old CF account and since both had a similar rating, I submitted from both accounts to see which one gets a higher rating I will not use the account "harit29dec04" from now on and won't ever repeat this again Thank youProof: They were submitted within 10-20 seconds of each other. I apologize to you for I don't know your rules clearly. Actually both harit29dec04 and harit29gangwani are my accounts. I'm sorry for using these two accounts to attend the round and waste your time. But would you please mind to cancel my punishment? You can check my IP to confirm that both harit29dec04 and harit29gangwani are my accounts and are the exact same solutions. And that will never happen again.Thank you so much
 » 3 years ago, # |   +29 Ffs, stop posting pointless comments. It would be great if admins could disable the comment section on this blog. As pointed out by -is-this-fft-, it is ridiculously irritating to have this pop up in recent actions because some people have zero clue how Codeforces works and think this blog is some magical way to contact Mike.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   -29 I'm very sorry sir I'm a school student and this was my 5th contest Please consider my solution for this round as they were both my accounts only, otherwise, how could they have the same email address, name, school and the same solution posted within seconds of each other. It will never happen again as I won't use my old account from now onYours sincerely

•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Judging by the email/PM that gets copied here sometimes, I think you are actually supposed to post your appeals in a public comment. So I think the comments can't be locked.The problem is that apparently some people don't get that "you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition" does not mean "I am very sorry, I didn't know the rules and asked solutions from a friend".
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   +17 Hadn't realised that's the proposed way of appeals. In that case it'd sure be nice to just have this post as an exception that doesn't ever show in "Recent Actions". Otherwise it's a bit like the entirety of Codeforces is subscribed to Customer Support.
 » 3 years ago, # |   -28 Sorry actually I was using ideone and due to which this error might have occcured and I assure to take care on any such mishappening further on. This was purely due to some coincidence.
 » 3 years ago, # |   -10 Hello sir. I have received a text that My solution coincide with another ID. I am really sorry that. It was my friend's ID. He asked me that how I have solved question A. So I send my code to him. As it was his first contest he didn't know about the copyright violation. Please forgive us. It was a mistake. And That will never repeat. MikeMirzayanov

 » 3 years ago, # |   +10 Call me racist but most of the whining (I repeat, whining, not false alarm reports) are from those greys and greens and cyans, and guess what, they stay almost the same (both in rating and attitude) after all the time.
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Maybe they stay that way because they only participate in your contests.
•  » » » 3 years ago, # ^ |   0 Maybe you stay your way because you have no better thing than whining at my round (even though I'm certain you don't give a f*ck of its actual content).Also, read your own comment out loud and think of its literal validity before proceeding.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Hello, I'm sorry that I broke the rules. I have my own opinions on problem B, but it's not enough to solve it. So I asked my friend for help. I promise I won't have another chance. Please give me a chance
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 A-70053242 B-70062291 C-70073631These are my own answers, all before the incident. After I finished, I used my computer to help my classmate submit（A-70074197 & B-70073981） (he couldn't connect to the server) and forgot to change to his account. I'm sorry. I hope you can revoke the violation record under my account. Thank you.
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +8 Seriously... this thing is popping up in recent actions every time a contest ends.Can admins disable the comments feature for this page?I mean, most thing posted here are all in the following format: I'm sorry, I (used Ideone/asked my friend/talked with my friend/used another account), I did not know it's illegal and I promise I won't do that again. This is just not right, I mean, reading rules is the first thing, and not reading the rules does not mean we should take mercy, and this thing pops up every day.I'm fed up of this, so if it's possible, just disable the comments.upd it seems that some people really are doing something here (they have strong clues), in this case, just do not let this blog post pop up in recent actions.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 My solution to the 1291b problem 70051751 is very consistent with that in annualring / 70051751. I'm curious. Isn't this person myself? Then I set myself up as an untrusted user, which makes me sad.

 » 3 years ago, # |   -10 Hello, sir. Ca1xukun is my other account, I submitted the same solution, I don't know I can't submit the same solution from two different accounts I'm really sorry that I made such a big mistake. Next time I'll follow all the rules. If you can, I hope to get your forgiveness.
 » 3 years ago, # |   -27 hello codeforces, i had a message after Codeforces Round #617 (Div. 3) .which says that Your solution 70267322 for the problem 1296B significantly coincides with solutions Iron_man_3000love/70267322, RUDRO_BU_CSE/70289774. .i want to say that both of the accounts( Iron_man_3000love and RUDRO_BU_CSE ) were mine and i don't know the rules of submissions . But i promise that the solutions of both accounts is completely mine, and i won't make this mistake again.Don't block my accounts please..

 » 3 years ago, # |   0 Sorry to disturb, my solution 70674217 for the problem 1300D significantly coincides with solutions 70676934, this simple code is from a previous blog that has been published for months. The URL is https://blog.csdn.net/weixin_30559481/article/details/99069024. We may just happen to use this blog at the same time instead of copying each other, thanks.
 » 3 years ago, # |   0 How to view the code that wants to be the same with oneself, I am a little suspect is system misjudgment!
•  » » 3 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +12 If you're given the email, there will be the id of your submission along with such of the supposed-plagiarizing submission.To view a submission by ID, using the link: https://codeforces.com/contest/[contestID]/submission/[submissionID].The [contestID] should usually be the id included in the problem that you've been caught.UPD: There can be a hack if you're totally unsure about the contest id. At the text editor used to type a comment in Codeforces, add a submission hyperlink, type in the id and then press "Preview" below the editor. Click the hyperlink showed on the comment preview to proceed (as long as you don't click "post", no comment will be made).
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   -10 confirm.
 » 3 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   0 Please look the submission mentioned below: by CaEdta : 70240740 and by me : 70243563 this was a question in the previous contest. From there, you can observe that we have been using the same templates. Yes, we are friends studing in same college. The solution in which our code matched was just a five line solution and those five lines were quite obvious once you have thought the solution. So, please consider my solution since this was a mere coincidence which obviously was unlikely to happen if we had used different template.
