Subject The date and time of CodeFu Seasonal 2010 Round 1
I am a high school student competing both in mathematics and programming and I would like to ask whether you could postpone the CodeFu Seasonal 2010 Qualification Round 1 competition to a later date, since the Macedonian Mathematics Olympiad is scheduled to take place at the same time on the very same day... I would be very grateful if you could reschedule the competition at least one day to either side of its presently scheduled date.

Regards,

Off topic. According to the rules:

- There is no elimination between the two qualification rounds.
- Everyone can compete on Round1 and Round2.
- It is not mandatory to compete on both qualification rounds.

which means that all eligible competitors can qualify in the finals even with one attended online round.

On topic: because of the tight schedule, the dates can't be changed.

Actually, according to the front page and the rules section, only university students, alumni or postgraduate students are allowed to participate at the 2010 CodeFu Competition...

Since you are a high school student, I don't think you're allowed to participate anyway.

@hsilomedus:
Thanks for your reply. Since, as BojanKostadinov said, I am ineligible for the finals due to the fact that I am not yet 18 years of age, I wanted at least to participate in the online rounds. But I guess I'll just have to settle for just one online round

@BojanKostadinov:
Actually, I believe that the rules emphasize that age and education level are only a prerequisite for participation in the finals and that everyone is allowed to participate in the online rounds:

Eligibility
CodeFu members meeting the following criteria are eligible to compete in the final round of the Algorithm Competition:

•Must be at least 18 years of age (as of May 9, 2010); AND
•Have to be an active student, alumni or postgraduate or having graduated or postgraduated in 2009
◦macedonian citizen who is a student, alumni or postgraduate in a macedonian or foreign University.
◦foreign citizen who is a student, alumni or postgraduate in a macedonian University.


Online Qualification Rounds
Duration of the online rounds is 2 hours.
They will be held on 11th and 25th of April.

•There is no elimination between the two qualification rounds.
Everyone can compete on Round1 and Round2.
•It is not mandatory to compete on both qualification rounds.

@obi1kenobi, exactly. Eligibility is different than allowance, everyone is allowed to compete in the online rounds, but not everyone is eligible to win a prize or enter the finals.
