    If we didn't care so much about having annual regulations and instead announced changes in their own time, people wouldn't have to over-hype.

    And not only regulations, but for changes in general, like the WCA site style changes.

    The difficulty in this is that we are a worldwide organization, and having small, frequent updates while keeping 100+ delegates up to date is difficult. It's much easier to give a large list of changes at once so that everyone knows the current regulations and we can make decisions consistently around the world.
     
  5. You see, my friend, I need to use a stickerless cube on January 10th. If it's not done soon, I have an issue.

    Maybe you should rethink your cubing choices.
     
  7. Which cubing choice would you be referring to?

    If you mean:

    a. The choice of ordering a stickerless cube: It was an accident. I wasn't paying attention when ordering. I can't just get another cube now.

    b. Getting into feet (yeah, it's my feet cube): It was over two years ago. All I wanted was some kind of record, and feet seemed the most in reach for me. I'm sorry that I got into the event.

    c. Another cubing choice: specify, please.

    Surely you have more than one 3x3 lying around?

    The chances feet will be held are getting staggeringly low due to a higher than expected registration, so your choices may be irrelevant anyway. For what it's worth, I don't see new regulations being ready that soon at all, this is still a long term project.

    What I have been thinking about is - why wasn't (past tense) stickerless cubes allowed in BLD? I mean, they couldn't SEE the 45 deg pieces, could they?

    Well they could see in memo, which is an important phase.

    But you can't turn the cube during memo so seeing the back edge pieces via a 45 degree move isn't useful.

    Nope. I am 100% certain that you will know when those regulations are ready because it will be posted in this very thread.

    Sounds like a fair assumption. However, perhaps an estimate of when that might happen would also be of use. If we were to know whether it's imminent, or whether it will be months away that might be useful for planning competition attendance.

    "When the regs are ready" and "Be patient" seem to be the recurring themes.

    I recognize better on stickered cubes, so this doesn't even pertain to me, but I'm interested to see the final results.

    Word seems to be, as usual, they will be release when they are finished to a standard such that we won't have a repeat of previous issues.
