I have done email verification, why my profile is still unverified?
Profile verification is different from email verification. Email verification only verifies your email address and gives you access to your account. On the other hand profile verification requires proper information in your profile. We do manual verification to maintain quality of our website. This is a skill development website so we require our members to be genuine and authentic. So we need their photo, address, name, contact information to verify their account so that there is no fake account.

Also all information must be real and accurate. We will verify you profile within 24 hours if all information is correct.
How solve score is calculated in coding contest - what is the formula?
Our formula for calculating solve score in coding contest is relatively simple. We consider 3 factors for calculating score, - Number of failed submission - Time taken to solve the problem from beginning of contest start - Score of the problem We consider highest time penalty as 50% of the score, that is if the problem is solved in last second of the contest, still contestant will get 50% score if he/she solve it in 1 shot. We consider 5% penalty for each failed submission, And we consider max penalty overall is 95%, that is if a contestant can solve the problem, at least he/she will get 5% score. So the formula is, Time Penalty = (Seconds Used / Total Seconds) * 50 Fail Submission Penalty = Failed Count * 5 Total Penalty = Fail Submission Penalty + Time Penalty IF Total Penalty > 70 Then Total Penalty = 70 Score = Total Score * (100 - Total Penalty) / 100.0 *Here,* *Seconds Used : Total time from beginning of the contest till when it was solve converted in seconds* *Total Seconds : Total duration of contest converted in seconds* *Also remember, contest score is relative factor. It is not constant for every contest. It is only used to decide the contest winner, but it do not carry to profile score after the contest.*
How the problem solving scores are calculated?
We consider the following scoring scheme: For archived problems: - Beginner = 1 - Easy = 2 - Medium = 3 - Hard = 4 - Expert = 5 For solve during contest - Beginner = 3 - Easy = 6 - Medium = 9 - Hard = 12 - Expert = 15 All scores are automatically added in your total score instantly when you solve the problem (unlike 3rd scores which may take 6 hours+ to update).
