As a result of certain malpractices that took place during the April Contest we are banning 3 of our top 20 Indian winners for the next challenge. They will also not be receiving prize money for the April Challenge.
In keeping with the spirit of CodeChef and since we do not want to spread a negative vibe among the contestants we will not publicly reveal the names of the people disqualified from the contest.
However, please bear in mind that we take cheating very seriously and will do everything we can to promote fair and healthy competition.
Cheating in future contests will result in the permanent banning of the faulty party.
We are optimistic and hope that something like this will NOT happen again. 🙂
