pedroslrey's blog

By pedroslrey, history, 4 weeks ago, In English

Hello! During the last couple months people keep spamming codeforces with "exposing cheaters" blogs, and it is getting quite annoying. So I thought about creating a subreddit with the only purpose to expose cheaters, and possibly, as I suggested in a comment, to raid cheating groups. I don't really have the time to moderate the subreddit, so I would be glad if someone could help me with that. Anyway, is that a good idea?

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: I'm starting to setup the community!

Why a subreddit? In what way is a subreddit better than CF blogs?

    The point of this is to people stop spamming those blogs on CF and start posting them elsewhere. This way, people who are into exposing cheaters will have there own place to do their detective work, and people who are tired of this kind of blogs don't need to see them anymore. I chose reddit because it has a similar interface.

raid cheating groups

I'm pretty sure this is called "brigading" and it's strongly against reddit's rules.

    Afaik giving wrong solutions on telegram cheating groups isn't against any rule.

        Is it easy to construct almost fully correct solution with just something that would either give TLE/WA? I mean you can't just include a line somthing like-
        if n==5 cout<<1234;
        as people are smart enough to remove this. So, how will you write a correct wrong solution?

          You may write a greedy algorithm, although we can't guarantee it will pass pretests, so a quadratic solution you claim to be optimized will do the trick.

          Exactly, cheaters are not smart enough to remove it.

          just give the code in brainfuck, They are not smart enough to remove this particular thing in that. :clownglasses:

Probably for its frequency, CF should implement some built-in feature for cheating. This is an idea, I'm not sure how good is it.

and possibly, as I sug(g)ested in a comment, to raid cheating groups

Perhaps it'd be easier to detect cheating if we had a tool to search submissions by code patterns, although that would unfortunately impose great load on the server.
