    ISU finally published the Novice Guidelines:
    http://www.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/c...-3787-4771-layout160-129898-news-item,00.html

    However, I think they should have followed more precisely Ms Binachetti's suggestions:

    They didn't basically change Novice requirement, they just called them "advanced novice". On the other side, they "invented" two parallel categories to skate free skating only, which was anyway the practice in the international club competitions in Europe (European criterium, for example).

    Not to mention that lot of announcement have been published already.

    So big preamble about the novice competition importance, but IMHO not much have been done.
