Good day!

Codeforces will hold competition Coder-Strike 2014 for Moscow school children. Qualification Round of the competition will start soon. The round will be unrated for all participants.

As usually, anyone can enjoy the problems! If you aren't a Moscow school child you can take part in the round unofficially.

Hope you will enjoy our problems, good luck!

...will be unofficial for you. Of course, it will be unrated in this case...

Does that mean that for official participants, round will be rated?

Will the next rounds of the Coder Strike be open to all? If so, will they be rated? And is it necessary to compete in the qualification round to be able to participate in the next rounds?

I am asking all these questions from the perspective of an unofficial participant who is not a Moscow school child.

    For not-official parcipiants next rounds will be opened, but they won't be rated. If you are not official parcipiant you don't need to complete qualification round.

    1. Will the next rounds of the Coder Strike be open to all? — Yes, they will be. Even Q Round is open.
    2. If so, will they be rated? — Yes, they will be. But we don't know the exact difficulty of the set right now. May be R1 and R2 will be rated only for div2 participants.
    3. And is it necessary to compete in the qualification round to be able to participate in the next rounds? No. The structure of the championship will not affect unofficial participants.

      if R1 and R2 are going to be rated, why cant Q-Round also be rated? is it solely because of difficulty of problems or some other reason?

        Because the problems will be very simple as usually in Qualification Rounds. Also, the round duration is quite huge.

This is the only contest with longest duration in CF that I have ever seen... Quite interesting. To tell you the truth, my plan is to read the statements & problems at home and try to figure out the answers at school! :p

    I think quite a lot of people should face it. It shows ~90 registered people at the moment and I think it was something like ~300 when I was looking before.

    We are sorry. :( This happens because of the registration policy. We rejected all unofficial registration, then changed registration policy, and then opened registration again. But registration will be open during the contest, so anyone can register again.

        Thank you! I have registered and submitted my code. But after 1 hour, whenever I submitted, my code resulted in runtime error. Is that because I have run out of time 1 hour allowed?

    Register again. They rejected unofficial registrations.
