Sorry, the rules are clear and firm that the forfeit has to stand. If you post here that you want to continue participating in future rounds then you will continue to be scheduled at least.
 
[Edit: Given the language barrier; I'm going to accept the above as indication of wanting to continue in the tournament.]

Hello. I have missed my second game, completely because of my own fault. I'm very sorry about that. If it is still possible, I would like to continue participating in the championship.

Sorry, since the next round has already been scheduled it's too late for you to get back in*. Hopefully there will be some more tournaments you can enjoy during the coming year.

* pedantically the actual deadline in the rules is an hour previous to scheduling.

Janzert, I am surprised that you wouldn't let fixpoint in with two forfeits for the two missed rounds.  That was absolutely my intent when I wrote the rules for 2013.  The rules for 2014 left me thinking that your intent was the same that mine had been, i.e. a player merely needs to give notice before the next round _that is paired_ not the next round _only after the round of the forfeit_.
 
I understand that there is a technical issue, and that the rule is open to multiple interpretations so that your interpretation rules.  However, for next year I strongly recommend clarifying the rule in favor of allowing a player to continue.  Allowing fixpoint to play rounds 4, 5, and 6 starting with a record of 0-3 is what I believe very strongly is what should happen here.

My understanding had been and intent when editing was that the player is permanently out after the first deadline. The motivation isn't because I don't want to see the player back but because I'm not at all sure that the server and tournament system can correctly handle the situation. In the chatroom discussion last night aaaa, who wrote the pairing program, also expressed uncertainty that it would work correctly. So I'm going to stick with the current ruling this year. If the technical issues can be resolved, I would be quite happy to see it changed next year.
 
If anyone has further discussion please open a new thread in order to keep this one clear for tournament notices.

Naveed contacted my via the gameroom message system shortly after his forfeit asking to resume play in the tournament. I tried to message him back but am unsure if my message made it through. After deliberation I'm going to accept his request to rejoin the tournament.
