ALEXANDRU.'s blog

By ALEXANDRU., history, 2 months ago, In English

This blog is not so serious so treat it as such. Recently I looked into the standings of Codeforces Round #733 and for a few moments I thought I was tripping. There were 2 people with the name "Jiangly", that being jiangly and jiangIy, you can see the picture bellow ⬇

I looked for like 5 minutes straight at both their profiles and they looked exactly the same, the link was the same, everything. I actually started to believe that it was a bug. Fortunately, I didn't had the chance to post it on Codeforces and look like a completely looser as a few moments later it hit me, One is jiangly with lowercase "L" and one with uppercase "i", you can see the little difference in the link beatween the letters height but here on Codeforces their usernames look exactly the same.

So it's possible for 2 users to have the same username afterall, huh? :)

Disclaimer : I posted this just for fun and I hope you enjoyed this interesting observation! Cheers!

Note that they don't look exactly the same, the capital I is slightly wider than the lowercase l.

JiangLy's code style is way better.

    to resolve this we could change the font type on codeforces.

    or just leave it as it is and let people trip after the contests ends :)

Practicing problems is overrated, just change your handle to a variant of jiangly to become red.

    Then he needs to submit two different codes for all problems to avoid plagiarism.

Funny that JiangIy with caoital "i" made his account before Jiangly with "L" so it wasn't a coppy. :))
