ACM-ICPC eligibilty

I came to know that you can appear only 5 times in ACM-ICPC. I wanted to know whether its the limit for the online contest or the on-site one.

I don’t remember where, but i’ve surely read it somewhere that the limit is for on-site contests.
Online contests are contests organised ‘locally’ just to separate out teams for the on-site round. AFAIK, online round questions are not set by main ICPC organizers.

Limit is for regionals only. You might want to see this link
