Who is the original coder ?

I am confused. the original author is Shekhar, right? then why Himanshu get COTD? see the date and the last line of code between many code here : https://code.sololearn.com/cUotOayknvz3/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/coexhBoB2mS4/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/cy448WNBIGLg/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/cKEM6QnRDRg6/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/cmhLzucqFxyK/?ref=app

based on my observation : - Muhammad ali, Alireza, Dheeraj, and Arand just copy paste the code from Shekhar because you can see his name in the bottom line of code. - while Lokesh clearly stated the original author is shekar, he just improve it. - it seem to me, Shekar update his code and Himanshu copy it and removed Shekar name in the bottom. but that just assumption, i'll wait for the prove.

i think people copy it from Shekar but again why Himanshu get COTD? does Sololearn don't see the upload date? oh my ... i'll send email now.

Adding to the list, we have problems with duplicate codes when: • Original content creator complains • SoloLearn features the dups instead of the original Sigh.

For what it's worth, this is exactly why I take such an extreme approach to the issue of plagarism.

@COMPL3X lets wait for the respond from Shekar, Himanshu, other mods, and Sololearn. i can't report without any proof.

Would the real slim shady, please stand up.. Do timestamps reset if you resave the file?

+13

I think Shekhar is the real coder, people just copied it. I've seen alot of these code before Shekhar got COTD

+13

Agus, pls don't leave! My experience is that SL sets code to private if I report it and send an email to explain my report afterwards. But I totally agree that copied code shouldn't be featured. It must be checked before it becomes CotD.

Lazy minds all the way! Such members deserve a Month's long Rehabilitation Clinic within this community.

Any update on this? I think Himanshu's code just had over 500 likes after it came on the Homepage. Sucks that its plagiarised and the real dev wasnt even given credit.

Oh nvm it was on the previous version of SL

@jay Yeah, I think the Calendar Icon means created date

based on comment dates Shekhar is earlier.. 4/4/2017 for Shekhar. 20 something /4/2017 for Himanshu.. not looking great. but yes. lets wait and see

+9

The time only says "Last Modified" but never shows "Created when"

+8

@jay Yeah, timestamps reset

+8

Welp, time to dislike and report?

+8

@Agus Mei Alright, I wouldn't do it until we get confirmations on the real one

+8

Yeah. As jay said First comment on Shekar's post is on 4/4 and on Himanshu's is 19/4 What appalls me is that it is the exact same code. They didnt even replace the '#' with a '*' lol

@imabadkidz: arrrr well thought place to look. smart.

+7

yeah. I would dare to say the one with all the comments and likes is the original.. or as close to the original author as we will find in this selection.
