    Thanks, your website is really helpful!

    Yeah, it's quite easy to inspect for this method in 15 seconds even after just a day or two of practice (and less than a week of clock solving). But, it's not as good as bob's method (I have more D moves and an inefficient pin order). So although my method is simple for a beginner, you probably won't find it fast.

    Quick question about WCA scrambling notation; let's say I got UR DR UL at the end of the scramble, are those pins put up or down? The regulation make no allusion to this at all.

    Up. It's annoying since you finish the scramble with all pins up.

    Can you get a +2 on Clock or is it an automatic DNF

    Imagine a world where you could get a +2 on clock. Dunno if it would be good or bad...

  8. I just snapped off a piece of my clock's casing while trying to open it. My clock is illegal now.
    1. Can I just ditch the outer clear case and submit my clock without it, assuming I've secured the inserts ect. ?
    2. Or could I cut/snap off near-identically shaped pieces from mirrored section of the case to make the damage alternate design not permit the orientation known?
     
  9. I have had that happen before as well (the case breaking) I would suggest getting a new clock and being extremely careful with its case while taking it off and use that case on your clock. You can use the new clock for spare parts.
     
  10. So I got a lingao clock and learnt how to solve it and got my time down to about one minute but now the pins had started dropping when I don't want them to, is there anything I can do to fix that?

    Yeah, the lingao pins get very loose. You can try bending the metal rods inside the pins, but really, magnets are the best.
     
  12. Is there a tutorial on how to magnetise it? I'm scared to take it apart without instructions.
     

  13. Believe it or not @Ronxu has provided us with a tutorial, just keep in mind for the future before asking “is there a tutorial for X” you can google it :p
