The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Events. You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the Events you predicted AND which haven't started. In order to earn points from the start, you should post your predictions before the start of the first Event of the Championships - March 2nd, 18:20 (GMT+1). You can EDIT your predictions whenever you want until the start of the first event of the Prediction Contest. Once competition starts, you are not allowed to edit your post and any further changes will be ignored. On contestant's request, edited predictions will be accepted, but contestant will earn 0 points for finished events and the events that have started (heats included). Moment at the latest editing will be considered as the entry moment, in other words. If you want to comment on this Prediction Contest, please use Prediction Contests - Discussion Thread only. If you have problem with the format, you can post your predictions in simplified format. Make sure your predictions are understandable. For instance, 1 - I. Blondin, 2 - A. Sato, 3 - J. Beune, means Ivanie Blondin wins gold, Ayano Sato silver and Joy Beune bronze. Every contestant can hide their own predictions.
