Where can I get a well organized information about TCO and further events (which TCO leads to?) structure?

I see lots of text everywhere, but barely can figure out what is what. I qualified for 2nd round and I'm still not quite sure where do I participate and where does it lead to...

Hi Topcoder_Updates,

I can't login with my account in both Arena app and WebArena Login: Merkurev.

In the arena app I got the message: Invalid username/password combination In the web arena I’m being asked to activate my account. But if I ask to resend an activation email I got error message, claiming that my account is already active.

Is there a way for me to restore access to my account and participate in round 2A?

I've also sent a email to support (request #109883)

        Destroying your userbase further is exactly what I'd expect of Topcoder at this point tbh.

          Topcoder, what a bunch of clowns you are...

          I didn't participate in Topcoder for several months, and now I can't login and do anything with my account, despite not even living in Russia for almost a year lmao(still had it set as my country in profile)...

          It's especially sad that I regularly participated in Topcoder for the last several years and somewhat enjoyed it, even though none of my friends did, and they found it extremely strange.

            That's actually a good thing imo. I was already suspecting that TC has no admins or that they lost all the ip addresses/passwords/keys/etc and because of that they were (for years) unable to fix all the issues people (yeah, mostly me) are constantly crying about (and still some people have enough rights to upload problems and create rounds, so they are just working with dead, unchangeable website, pretending that everything is ok).

            As they were able to ban Russians, it probably means that they still have access to everything that's needed and can fix everything now and for sure will do that! Isn't it cool?!

Division leaderboard still doesn't work in webarena.

Will Stage 3 qualifiers be removed from top 200 list for Round 3? Because currently I see couple people who participated in 2A instead of parallel round despite they already have slot in Round 4.

Topcoder apparently has banned all accounts that have their country set as Russia or Belarus, including tourist. Meanwhile, they have this on the Algorithm front page:
