    Sorry one interruption to the ongoing discussion:

    For SD in 2012-13 and 13-14, is the side by side step sequence still in the circular pattern?

    Decisions of the ISU council: http://t.co/dPs1OAOa

    It addresses controlling numbers after removing the preliminary rounds through minimum technical scores, but the requirements look really high to me, particularly for Worlds. Just going on the scores from Worlds last year only the top 15-17 in each discipline would meet the required score for Worlds next season. (Obviously a few more would sneak in looking at the scores over the whole season, but annoyingly the ISU doesn't break down the SB list into TES and PCS...)
    Does anyone know what the required scores were this year for comparison purposes?

    They're also introducing minimum scores for Junior Worlds, and those scores are not low.

    So federations will need to make sure anyone who they hope to send to Junior Worlds, who is capable of earning those scores, has gotten JGP or other international assignments as an opportunity to earn the minimum score.

    How many junior internationals take place in January and February, for surprise junior national champs or junior skaters who were injured in the fall?

    Someone mentioned that the Junior Men in Pairs and dance age had been dropped from 21 to 20. Can this be confirmed??

    I can't confirm it 100% but the ages have been lowered and I think it's by one year, yes.

    Well, at least with the demise of preliminaries the stupid direct entries die to. That sums up all the positives I can think of.
