## irregularity during some competitions

During some copetition in the 2 past week, I constate some irregularity with rules 9M and 9p1. I'm based of 9g [quote:1u3hllth]9g) A Combined round is two or three rounds combined during one time frame, where results of earlier rounds are taken into account for next rounds. [...] 9m) Events must have at most four rounds. * 9m1) Events with 99 or fewer competitors must have at most three rounds. * 9m2) Events with 15 or fewer competitors must have at most two rounds. * 9m3) Events with 7 or fewer competitors must have at most one round. [...] 9p) In case of more than one round for an event the best ranked competitors of a round proceed to the next round. * 9p1) For each round of an event, at least 25% of the competitors must not proceed to the next round.[/quote:1u3hllth] I did not checked all competition but some example follow. Melbourne winter open 2010 Event : Square One irregularity : 3 round with 8 competitors 4 competitors for final and 5 for second round Alania open 2010 Event : 4x4x4 irregularity : 5 round 18 competitors for third round and 19 for second round 10 competitor for semi-final and 10 for final Event :5x5x5 irregularity : 10 competitor for semi-final and 10 for final Event : Square One irregularity : 3 round with 12 competitors Cubing sa Tag-Init 2010 Event : 3x3x3 irregularity : 4 round with 23 competitors 19 competitors for second round and 23 for first round Cologne open 2010 Event : 4x4x4 irregularity : 30 competitor for second round and 29 for final Event : 6x6x6 irregularity : 26 competitors for first round and 22 for final ... I understand that is not really possible to respect 9p1 for combined round, but that show that 9p1 don't correspond of a realist rules Olivier Polspoel

You should have really taken the time to read the rules between the ones you quoted. [quote:3u49gfhp]9o) A Combined round and a Qualification round count as one round when counting the number of rounds per event.[/quote:3u49gfhp]

Althought I think most delegates and organizers are aware of this. But it's a minor addition that can be made next year.

Ok for these competitions During Indonesian Championship 2010 92 competitors for qualification rounds and 88 for 1st round It's the same reason : no application of 25% for qualification round ?

At the Indonesian Championship 2010 the qualification round was for competitors without a WCA-id, and 36 of them proceeded to the first round. Where is the problem?

Guadalajara Open 2010 3 round of 333 with 15 competitors

Putting that in the database was an oversight on my part. The final round of Guadalajara Open 2010 has been removed. -Tim Reynolds

Only one cuber in 4BF. # 9q) Events and rounds should have at least 2 competitors.

I just check on some of the competitions. Estonian Open 2010: Only 1 cuber for 4BF Axis Cube Open 2010: Only 1 cuber in SQ-1 Shandong 2010: Only 1 cuber for 5BF Ho Chi Minh City Open 2010: Only 1 cuber in Mega Düsseldorf Open 2010: For entering 3x3 2nd, 59/78=75.5% >75% Only 1 cuber in 5BF Toronto Open, Summer 2010: Only 1 cuber in 5BF

The regulation says "should", not "must".

[quote="BryanLogan":31pl6owl]The regulation says "should", not "must".[/quote:31pl6owl] Sorry for not focusing on the key words "should" and "must". Besides that, how about this one? Düsseldorf Open 2010: For entering 3x3 2nd, 59/78=75.5% >75% # 9p1) For each round of an event, at least 25% of the competitors must not proceed to the next round.

True. This must have been a rounding mistake - my fault as I was delegate. Tim, could you please just delete my second round results?
