||I signed up for TopCoder in October 2016. My first participation in TopCoder competition was on 21st February and it was success.
I would like to take advantage of this newbie tournament in Jump into TCO 17 but unfortunately the rules states that
Topcoder members who have not earned money on a Design or Development challenge and signed up for Topcoder between January 1, 2016 and February 28, 2017.
I won prize just one week before the launch of this program. I am not a veteran to compete with the geeks in Development leader board. I hope I would be able to compete with the veterans in near future.
I would like to have the advantages of newbie so that I could hope for a trip to TCO. Is there any possible relaxations in rules which could help me enter into TCO ? Positive response could motivate newbie like me and other newbies to involve more in Topcoder community.
