||In a recent challenge, the reviewer cited a guide/document that I hadn't seen till that point and was not invoked by any reviewer in my previous challenges.
After the completion of the challenge, I requested to the reviewer to let me know about all the documents that he uses in his reviews as a reference. He said that he uses just the one he cited, but informed me that 'it was my responsibility to discover any contest related documents'.
First off, I certainly don't thinks it's my responsibility. It's topcoder's or at least the copilot's responsibility to inform me about any document that I should be aware of. I cannot scan the entire site to find all the documents that are relevant to me.
Therefore, it would be great if we were informed about all the documents that are used as a reference during code/F2F reviews.
Moreover, I noticed that the document he cited is for 'component development'. Is it relevant to code/F2F challenges as well, as in, should it be strictly inforced? If it should be, then I request the copilots to include it in the challenge specs.
In general I request the copilots to include every document in the specs that can be used as a reference for point deduction. Nothing should be left to chance.
