Will the written descriptions of each rule pool be listed above the puzzle sets, or will it only be the images?

Only images but there'll be a page like the list given in the IB, as a separate page in the PB. For online solvers I'll try to have a tab for quick reference but it's probably best to keep the IB handy/familiarize with the depictions.

Some updates:
- I'm postponing the contest start by an hour. The end will also be adjusted accordingly.
- A new IB version has been uploaded. This has the following changes:
A) I underestimated the Puzzle Booklet pages. Instead of 10, it's actually 12.
B) The points distribution is added.
C) I've addressed some queries within the Rule Pool section that I saw elsewhere - these are highlighted in green font on the respective pages (Pages 2 and 3 of the examples portion of the IB/4 and 5 overall)

I'll be adding a general announcement to the submission page about the PB pages being different and to look at this IB update before starting.

Note: I'm unable to do a quick reference tab for online mode without overcomplicating paper mode. I suggest keeping the specific page of the IB open in a separate tab if you think you need a quick reference.
