Here are some additional statistics about the contest:
|Length of Contest||Unique Visitors||Unique Participants||Total Number of Submissions||Percentage of user who have solved at least one problem|
|Country||Total Participants||Average Score per User|
|Rest of World||30||2.494|
This time we tried something different with respect to the challenge problem. A user could submit at most 20 times in a span of 24 hours. We would like your feedback regarding this.
- Was a limit of 20 submissions a day enough or would you like more number of submissions?
- Alternatively, should we revert back to the re-judging method that was followed for the July Contest?
We also need your feedback about the contest as a whole.
- How would you rate the contest problems?
- Were they easier/similar/difficult compared to the previous contests?
Also, if you have any kind of feedback related to the contest or otherwise, feel free to comment.
Lastly, as you all know, we will be having a shorter contest later this month. The August Mini Challenge will be held from 22nd August 15:00 IST to 24th August 15:00 IST. This will consist of a single challenge problem with no limits on the number of submissions. Hope to see you all there.
