Contest No. 874 (Div3) Plag warning. How to proceed further?

Revision en1, by SD_drago, 2023-06-02 15:52:58

I received a mail very recently about my solution to problem flipper being same as someone else. This was my second contest on code forces and I was using an online IDE back then. Unfortunately it seems my code was copied but I don't have evidence to prove otherwise and don't know how to proceed. I have switched to VS code since then and didn't have any similar occurrences. I have attached the mail below.


Your solution 206537886 for the problem 1833D significantly coincides with solutions SD_drago/206537886, krish0522/206543895. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use 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 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.

It seems I have not lost any rating but would like to take further steps in order to avoid this happening in future. Thank you for your help/advice.
