A special mention should be given to Stephen Merriman (2nd), stolis (5th), Anton Lunyov (6th) and RoyaumER (9th) for finishing in the top 10 globally. To all our international participants, we are planning a contest in the next month or two where you will be eligible for prizes.
We’d also like to apologize for changing the time limit for HX a few days before the contest was over. We have really tried to avoid making changes during a running contest but in this case we though that the time limit was too strict and too much emphasis was placed on proper I/O. We will do our best to make sure that these types of issues don’t come up in the future.
If you want to give back to the CodeChef community and help up-and-commers to get better, we encourage you to contribute to a tutorial, links or tips in our wiki (if you do a good job, we’ll also send you some books).
There will not be another contest in October, the next contest is November 1st and will be our (now) standard 10 day format. We will be holding a second contest (most likely a team based ACM-ICPC style competition) in the later part of next month.
Tomorrow, we will be updating the banner, making solutions public, providing contest statistics and test cases.
