Hi, I just saw this testing round, and it doesn't seems to be any article about it. Is it rated? For which division? How many problems? What kind of problems?

Thanks in advance

Hi!

Sorry to bother you with this topic, but I question myself about one rule of eligibility that you can see on this picture (and I think codeforces is one of the easiest way to have answer) : "Have completed more than equiv of 8 semesters of full-time stud" I am actually in first year of "master", so I have credits for my three first years on university, but I have made some crossovers between different years : L1 -> L1/L2 -> L2/L3 -> L2/L3 -> M1 (2009) (2013)

Does it count like 6 semesters completed, or more?

Thanks in advance.

I've juste seen some strange links on "Recent actions", and I was curious to know why very old articles like "Codeforces Beta Round #57 (Div. 2) " were on the list. The response is simple: Some people use old articles to hide comments for increase popularity. Here, we have Soheil96 who added two minimalist comments ":D" or "like.", and used multi account (or asked friends) to give him positives votes.

On recents articles, thoses kinds of comments will have a lot of negative, but hidden between very old comments, the comments conserve positive ratings.
