    If you can not feel the difference with another center cap, it's fine.

    If you can throw the cube in the air with your eyes closed and then find the white side just by touch, then it's not allowed. You can scrape those logos off gently with a sharp knife. Hold the knife relatively flat so you don't scratch the plastic.

    I am asking because I wasn't allowed to compete on one blind event with valk3. I will scratch it of, but I would comment that this rule doesn't solve anything. You don't try to find white face during comp, no time for that, but technicaly, I can always recognise one face blind by touching the imperfecton in some of the cubes( slightly schrached edges...) you always know your cube and nobody competes with new cube.

    This can be used to keep track of where your interchange is in an edge commutator or whether you are on an even/odd target in M2.

    Only if it can't be felt.
     
  6. As long as you can't feel it, then it should be fine.

    So I could just use 6 transparent stickers instead of peeling the logo away

    I think you'd have to cover the cube in transparent stickers as well if you did them on the center caps, but I'm not sure what reg I'm thinking of that makes me think that

    if the point is not to be able to recognise the face, then stickers on the center cups would be enough.

    At a comp I was recently at, I got a 4.860 2x2 solve. When they entered it in, it came up as 48.60 on the scoreboard. I went up to them and told them what happened, and they fixed it. However when I went on the WCA website the next day, my time was 48.60 again. I emailed them twice about this, and I haven't gotten a response yet. What should I do?

    PS I'm new to the Speedsolving forum, so if this thread in the wrong place, let me know, and I'll remove it.

    Have you emailed the organisers or the delegates of the competition? Try emailing the delegate directly if you haven't done already.

    What does a beyond 45 degree cube look like? Even at home I would like to plus 2 if I really did go beyond 45 degrees.

    Closer to a U/U' away than to solved. 45 degrees is halfway to a quarter turn, 90 degrees.

    Shouldn't be, although the wording in the regulations makes no clock legal.
    But ya, don't checkered your clock

    I think I know the answer to this, but I'd rather ask here:
    Black stickers on a black cube. Comp legal? I don't know why not. I've switched black for orange and pink for red. I'd just rather be sure it's ok.
     
  17. I mean white is good so I don't see why not

    Is white-on-white ok? This one you might have to look closely to even see that there are stickers on that side.
     
  19. Whoops that's what I meant to say

    As long as there are stickers, you'll be fine
