PinkieRabbit_buster's blog

By PinkieRabbit_buster, 2 weeks ago, In English

I am writing to report an incident of cheating by PinkieRabbit during the recent contest 1965 on Codeforces. PinkieRabbit asked help about problem D from others during the contest, which is definitely against the contest rules.

I have attached the evidence of the cheating behavior in the appendix, please read it. This evidence clearly shows the communications PinkieRabbit had with another person during the contest. It is a contest recording video published after contest by himself. As a former fan of PinkieRabbit, after seeing this video, I was shocked by how dishonest PinkieRabbit was. I believe such actions undermine the integrity of the competition and the platform as a whole. win114514 cheated by grouping up in contest 1905, finally punished by skipping. Therefore, I respectfully request that Codeforces take appropriate action against PinkieRabbit to maintain the fairness of the contests on Codeforces.

He only cheated in one problem this round, so I suggest make a mild punishment. I suggest make this round unrated for PinkieRabbit or skip only problem D (which is very appropriate as far as I am concerned, after which he can also get positive rating) as a consequence of this behavior. Wish this can remind him not to cheat again. This be beneficial to prevent such incidents in the future.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please let me know via Codeforces talk if you need any further information or clarification.

Appendix 1: video indicating cheating of PinkieRabbit
Appendix 2: The Key Part of conversation extracted from the video and its translation

UPD:

  • Here is complete text of the video, feel free to translate it by AI. Note that it is not revised by human and for reference only.

  • Only in Chinese slang did “you're my dad” use to express thank and generally for fun.

  • “I remind you that this video is to be uploaded, with that section, wish it not be censored.” refers not to the cheat part but to an erotic joke about jiangly, I think it is irrelevant and not good to post it on Codeforces, so I didn't post it.

        In the Chinese mainland (also where I am), because of the government’s network blockade, we can’t use YouTube, instead we can only use China’s domestic video websites, like Bilibili. So there’s no doubt why this video will appear on Bilibili.

        I can understand your question, but commenting it without thinking will make a bad impression and reflect your laziness — you should be able to get this information just by searching online.

    Firstly, sorry if my previous revision comment defended in somehow a cheater.

    Spoiler

    It's weird! But I think given the immense number of upvotes, and the evidence provided by many comments here, especially User_Carrot that the translation is accurate and Pinkie did it to show off, it makes sense.

    Exactly. It is too weird that I speculated the blog writer might be utilizing the fact that people don't understand Chinese. I don't defend, but it's bizarre xD.

      Nah. I'm a native speaker and i'm sure that the translation is like 99% correct and without any addition.

      He has recorded himself participating contests and posted for several years and this time was just as usual. He mentioned in the video that he was afraid to be punished, but what much more than that is his eagerness to show himself off. So he chose to publish it.

I think the organizer of LUOGU have to consider if PinkieRabbit is still able to be the controller of LUOGU. You know all the cheaters will get BANNED or punishment after a contest ends. LUOGU dont't like cheaters AT ALL. What PinkieRabbit has done just broke that rule and set a awful example for the all users of LUOGU.

    How did you come to the conclusion that he was strong? He said that he cheated for more than once, which means that maybe all the games he was involved in were cheating. That means it's not his true strength.

          Are you real SkyWave?(I don't think SkyWave's attitude towards PinkieRabbit would be so cold.)

          Please respect him.Anyway, he is helpful in the information science community and has participated in proposition work multiple times. I believe he is a respected person in this regard

          The difficulty of NOI is very high, and it is almost impossible for him to cheat. He has done a lot of questions in the valley, which is obvious to everyone, so he is very strong. Everyone should agree with this fact, right?

            Separate things properly. If PinkieRabbit really is a cheater, he should be punished accordingly. And that doesn't invalidate the good deeds he had done, if any. Those two are completely independent topics, and none would outshadow the other.

            You can't use your good past as an excuse for your present wrongdoing. And vice versa, your present good deeds might earn people's respect, but they don't fully delete any sins in your past — at least their marks for remembrance and atonement will always stand.

      I think you're abusing PinkRabbit somehow. We can't assume he cheated in many more contests if he only admits to this one, even if he says "more than once". On the other hand, I think we can all agree that PinkRabbit has the strength to get rk51 in the national contest NOI.

        If you got rk51 in NOI,you would only win a silver medal.However,PinkRabbit won a gold one,which really confused me.There is no precedent in all previous contests.Perhaps it's a bad example to convince us.

          3 people had got a gold medal in IOI and they got gold medal in NOI2020 again. So rk51, rk52 and rk53 could get gold medal in NOI2020, too.

          Three gold medalists were no longer selected for the national training team because they also won gold medals at the IOI that year, and Pinkie Rabbit joined the national training team because she was originally rk51 and won gold medals at the same time (53 gold medals that year)
