  • it is not possible 2 code wit diff e-mail id those which r not registered... u can participate if n only if u sign into t contest... u cant code just lik tat as u ping into t site... so only those who hav registererd can code...

    even after signing in v can code by givin diff mail-id... tats ur que right? but ur going 2 giv t id... only use of tat is u'll get one more chance 2 practice coding...  so i think no need 2 bother on tat..

    but i dono y they ask for email-id... anyone else?

  • Its nothing like wat u guys think...ya it jus asks for maIL id and not password dis means that anyone is free to try it any number of times...but the reason y they ask 4 email id is that, thats wat the student rockstar site uses to trace our performance in the "Coding Challenge"...hope u understand wat im talking abt(ur performance will b evaluated and points given as per the programs uploaded by u)...also it shud be noted that the same ID which u use inside Student Rockstar site shud be used here...else u may not get points for this event...if u r not sure which email id to use, loggin to student roskstar site and then goto the "User Profile" page...there ull find the Email Address....

    It`s possible to access the coding site without loging to rockstar by just  copying the link

    and pasting to URL even when u r not logged in to studentrockstar.

    I hav done this for one of my frnd who was not able to login to studentrockstar due to sum problem..

    and also other unregistered e-mail id can be used i hav used my gmail id which was not registered.



    and also i want to know wat`s the meaning of giving the challenge any number of time,It`s a quiz and must

    be given only one time for healthier comp. otherwise we can login with other account and can thus practice the

    problem which can be by luck match to the problem ,when we give the quiz thru rockstar id.

  • The coding contest is open for anyone.. the email id is only to trace your progress in the Rockstar contest.. Also Dev Square is a 3rd party which usually have the coding quiz., MS is just making a use of their service... so our email id are used to trace the score....
