Hey, not fair!!! :-)

Post by Observer »

Look at the ranklist of Q10706:
1 0:00.000 64 mazhar (BUET SphinX) C++ 2004/10/03-18:57:39.464 2931031 (H0)
2 0:00.000 64 Observer Mak ☺ PASCAL 2004/08/30-05:20:19.901 2807894 (H0) <-- That's me
3 0:00.000 64 JoonYoung @ YONSEI C++ 2004/08/31-15:30:22.118
I want to know why mazhar can get my first place! See the submission time: mine is definitely earlier than his!!!! :wink:

Similar things have happened to Q871 and 872. Please, give me back my ranks~~~~ You know how hard we get the first place with Pascal codes :D :D :D

But as you see 'C' is earlier in alphabet than 'P' ;-)

Best regards

PS. But I think, that you should have first place :-)
If you really want to get Accepted, try to think about possible, and after that - about impossible ... and you'll get, what you want ....

It happened during the re-indexing.
First they emptied all ranklists.
During re-indexing, but before your code was re-indexed, mazhar's code was submitted and accepted so he got first on the list.
Then, when your code was re-indexed, it was put on the list, behind mazhar who was already ranked.

So if you are realy keen on getting in first place with your zero-second codes, you should wait until the next re-index, then resubmit all your codes. It will cost you some submissions, but it will get you on first place if you're fast enough :lol:

Nah, just wanna express my anger here :evil: :D

After all, what is a first place for if everybody can write a zero-second code for it? Btw, I've still got some first ranks~~ :wink: :wink:

Oh how I love this chit-chat area :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Well, for any code for that matter.

Note the word "everybody"! I couldn't think of a task whose accepted codes all finish by zero time. (or is there one?) :wink:

Should I add the word "good" before "for"?

Shouldn't that be the first accepted zero-second solution for that matter? :D
