Rather than debating all these little details, let's do something about it!
As you may be aware, we are planning to publish the next version of the Regulations with accompanying Guidelines. They will be just as binding, but they should contain all the interpretations and clarifications that don't belong in the rules. This way, delegates have a clear reference for making decisions.
However, there are a lot of small rules, and we could use your help in making sure we have everything covered. If you know (or want to know) something about the regulations that should be clarified, please post it in the thread with either the word QUESTION or the word SUGGESTION.
SUGGESTION (A2): Competitors are not allowed to request a specific orientation for a puzzle.
SUGGESTION (3c): "Stickerless" puzzles like stickerless GuHongs are not allowed for any event. (WCA thread)
QUESTION (5b): If a single corner twists in place, what is the competitor allowed to do?
Some things that would help:
- Please include a reference to a section of the regulations, if possible.
- If the topic has been previously discussed, please provide links.
- If you have any examples from real events that help illustrate the topic, please give us as much information as you can, so the WRC can make informed decisions when compiling and deciding the Guidelines. In particular, it helps to know about rulings from delegates at actual competitions around the world.
