fictional-octo-barnacle's blog

By fictional-octo-barnacle, 4 weeks ago, In English

As the CodeChef long just ended and I was stuck on one of the problems for very long, I started searching for editorial, and this is when I came across this Online group . These people have a website for cheating. I mean, they are going to this extent just to cheat. How could they sleep with dignity after cheating in a contest like long, which is intended mainly for programmers' learning?

I was very disappointed with my performance as I could only solve 5 problems in the long challenge, and my rank was 1000+. Some so many people solved all the problems, and I blamed myself for not being good enough. But after seeing this, I am happy that at least I don't cheat, and this honesty with which I was trying to solve the problem will help me in future.

Shame on you guys. Those who justify all this by saying you participate in contests for learning and not for rating and rank and it does not matter to you, then don't cheat during the contest. Come on, guys, at least don't lie to yourself. I really thought that the more people join the CP community, the more it will grow, and we'll have better and better programmers, but if this is what it will be like, please stop participating. If you are going to cheat, then don't even bother taking part. You are just degrading the standard of the community, the standard of the contest and, believe me, or not, harming yourself with it.

I'm very sorry for this blog, but this was too much. The way they were asking for solutions was shameful. And the worst part of it is most of them were Indians, from my own country. Shame on you guys. If you are one of the people who cheat in contests, just look in the mirror and see how bad your self-respect has fallen.

I have attached some screenshots from the group.

If you know who is the person behind this website or those who cheat, just tag them here. They should feel ashamed about their acts. I know public shaming is not an appropriate way, but this is too much. They should be stopped.

    Really!!! Is this wrong of me to find it disheartening that this much amount of people cheat in contests. And the worst of all is they have a community of their own with 3000+ members.

WTF, remove the site name or remove the blog right now, also keep the cheating in long, blogs restricted to cc itself as they don't add anything of value to cf.

Best would be to delete the blog and post one in cc.

    You are right but people like these are a threat to every community. IMG. I'm not a very active participant of Codechef so I decided to post it here.

        I am really sorry; I didn't think it through. Thanks for mentioning it. I believe one should be honest to themselves, and these contest we participate in are for our own learning, so we should not cheat. If, after reading my blog, the only takeaway one has is the group's name to cheat from, then what can we expect from that guy anyway.

          But than again wasn't the purpose of this blog was to reduce cheating.But by doing this it creates the opposite effect, people just find more resources to cheat.These people don't care about self learning and most of them right now haven't gone through the placement process so they don't even realize what they are doing wrong.Tbh I think the cheating will automatically die down after couple of years when people will realize that they have only wasted their precious part of their engineering life by doing this.

        Before the large telegram group was exposed, it was already quite large, and afterword it got shut down.

Why don't we organize a raid in this website? If we get a group of 50 people to give wrong solutions on purpose during a contest, or to spam useless comments, it will be very hard for someone to cheat, and thus sabotaging the scheme. It is very likely to have moderators in the website, so we can circunvent bans by using multiple accounts (it's better to create them a couple days before the raid, since they ay ban new accounts from commenting). We can do this in other telegram cheating groups too.

Presenting you the biggest cheater of all time! imSahil169

His Codechef handle

In 7 minutes he solved 6 difficult problems!!!!!

Wow bro why are you asking for advice??

Instead dont you think you should be giving advice to others???

Why do you want to improve bro?? You are already such a great competitive programmer!

In the recently conducted MAY CHALLENGE on codechef this guy managed to solve 6 problems out of 7. Many of them were AC in one go!

I saw his submissions and wasnt shocked a bit!

His solution for THOUSES

Code that was leaked in youtube and other platforms!

His solution for VPATH

Code that was leaked online

His solution for ISS

Code that was leaked online

I think he solved only the first problem by himself. Rest all were copied!!!!!

Shame on you. Now you are making blogs on how to become expert??

I remember -is-this-fft- words: "Imagine being so bad that you cant escape grey even after cheating" __

His noble words when i ask him how to practice

He himself says that there is a lot of cheating going on in long challenges!!! LOL

Shame on you cheater! People like you have runied the sport for others
