Tyson has tentatively put me in charge of the regulations for 2012. I would like to pass that duty off to someone else, but for now I'm going to get the discussions started.
The official discussions, of course, take place in the WCA Regulations forum. Most changes should be discussed there before being added to the regulations.
However, this forum is a more practical place for discussion, with many more active members, so I'm creating this thread. Since this can pile up pretty fast, I'm asking that you add any concerns to this new wiki page.
If you are discussing an old topic, please find any old posts that are related to it, and add them to the wiki page. The feel free to revive the thread(s) and post here with a few comments.
If you believe you have a new topic, please post here to ask if it's really new, and then, if you really want to, create a new thread for it (not in the WCA competitions subforum, though) and link to it here and in the wiki.
Feel free to use this thread to talk *about* all the regulation topics. Try to keep any specific details in threads about those topics, and not here.
Please be realistic and constructive while discussing the 2012 regulations. Jokes and uninformed posts are *not* welcome. While I value everyone's opinion, I reserve the right resort to heavy moderation if you are not acting constructive at all. But I know we can all be serious and dignified, right?
Let's get going!
Note: Discussions about new events is currently on hold as of late December 2011. See this post in this thread..
