> Usage of data before May 2021 for questions of 2019, 2020

The competition rules state that we may use the Autocast dataset which is recorded before 2021. The test data contains information from 2019 and 2020 too. Is this okay? Or does the restriction apply to those questions too? i.e do we have to train a separate model for test questions from 2019/20 or can we use the same model trained using data till May '21

I assume you are referring to the publish_time @pjmathematician.
But what matters is the close_time feature, which in the test set only ranges from mid 2021 to mid 2022.
However, may I ask confirmation from the competition hosts?

Thanks for answering - that is correct. Information prior to publish_time can be used given this doesn't violate other rules.
