Re. this problem:

https://brilliant.org/community-problem/a-badminton-match-that-can-go-on-forever/?group=83R4PUpcVTyt

I'm sure I have solved it but the correct solution isn't accepted. I submitted a request to Brilliant about this but got not response. Has anyone else had the same issue?

(I'm not posting my solution here, in order to not spoil the problem for those that haven't solved it yet).
