Submission counts

Hi there,

In my first submission to the contest, I made an error that gave me an incorrect submission file (using floats instead of integers for the predictions). This submission was rejected but also counted as one of my three submissions for the day. I don’t remember exactly but I seem to recall that in the last contest, incorrect submissions that were not accepted did not count towards the total. Was there a reason for the change? Or am I simply misremembering?

Thank you!

You’re right that submissions that fail shouldn’t count against your limit. Can you check if your count of submissions is being reported properly now?

Also, for the record, emailing info@drivendata.org is usually the best/quickest way for support.

Thanks,
Peter
