    I googled Samoa and learned that its capital is Apia. Is it related to "apiad"?

So.. will there be an online mirror after the contest ends?

    How are problems visible during GCJ/FHC's finals? Can spectators discuss problems online?

    We may hold mirror contests later in case many people want to participate in it (11:00 JST in weekday is not a good time anyway).

      I don't think GCJ or FHC allows to participate virtually. They only publish problems.

      Still — please allow virtual participation or something like that, can be a day later.

        Maybe Saturday 23:00-27:00 JST? (I think we'll have an ABC in 21:00-22:40.)

        UPD: It's confirmed, we'll really do it at this time.

      Didn't you think about reusing these tasks one by one in different contests where WTF participants cannot (or may not) take part? E.g. IOI or rated round at some platform.
      Asked because these tasks should be very interesting, hard and original. So, it would be quite a big pity if they light up in some unrated and not important mirror.

        You think they haven't seen problems from IOI or other contests they didn't compete in? Would you bet a successful contest on it?

            Oh, you were talking about reusing the other way, into IOI etc. In that case, while they can appear in trainings, serious competitions like IOI don't take problems that were already used (anywhere) and you always run the risk that a problem is known because participants talked with their friends about it. Expecting people to stay silent about something for an unlimited amount of time is a bad idea.

WTF is 2718 score for problem? :)

Also, are you going to host any mirror contest for non-finalists?

    Based on the finalists level problems would be too hard for everyone except very few and doesn't make sense to make it rated

      The option in such a case is to use the problems as hardest for multiple AGCs (yes, the finalists can't participate, oh the horrors of being best in the world). Although looking at the standings... probably no point.

        Nice handicap system for World Tour Finals 2020. Just ban last year finalists from participation in few AGC.

          It isn't a big deal if there are enough AGCs... okay, now I'm not sure if WTF 2020 will take place at all.

      Those are interesting — top 4 people all solved first 3 problems, nobody has solved any of the remaining 3 problems, now I'm even more eager to see the problems and a report of the contest.
