    --------------------------------------------------------------
    • Anyone is welcome to join, there are no requirements on your times when you being to participate in the thread.
    • This is a banded goal thread, with the goal times being 2 minutes, 1 minute 30 seconds and 1 minute. If you do not specify which band you will be competing in you will automatically be placed with your goal band being the band closest which is lower than your initial posted average. i.e. If your first posted average is 2:20.07 you will be plaved in the 2:00 goal band. If your first posted average is 1:29.99 you will be placed in the 1:00 goal band.
    • You graduate within your goal banding once you have sucessfully attained three averages below your goal with no averages above the goal inbetween. This allows for missing rounds with no impact to your graduation progression.
    • Once graduated at 2:00 and 1:30 you will automatically be placed in the next lower banding if you wish to continue to compete in the race.
    • Once graduated at 1:00 any times posted will be published in a separate Alumini section within the results.
    • Please do not use your own scrambles, please ensure you use the scrambles given within the thread for each round. These will be generated each week by me with the official WCA scrambler using the URL http://worldcubeassociation.org/reg...ramble_cube.htm?size=4&num=12&len=40&multi=on
    • We will be using the Ao12 system where twelve solves are completed and the best and worst individual times are disregarded and the remaining 10 times are averaged.
    • Although there is no verification of your times please be honest. The race is for your own enjoyment and progression. Any ficticious posted times are not going to get you to you goal any quicker in reality. You will be cheating yourself more than other participants.
    • Videos are always welcome to support your times or to prompt discussion or ask for advise. Please embed the video, but within spoiler tags as available on a 'Post Reply' toolbar and also post the usual textual requirements of a results post.
    • When posting results, please at the very least post the Round number and average (in minutes, seconds and hundredths of a second, e.g. 1:23.86, being 1 minute and 26.86 seconds). It is also preferred to post the 12 individual times. Any other information is also welcome such as the statistical data offered by qqTimer etc and your own comments. In addition if you would like a different name to appear on the results, say your real name as opposed to your forum name please also state this. An example results post would be:-

      or
    • The race is bi weekly with scrambles being posted (if at all possible) between 8pm and 10pm GMT each Tuesday and Friday. Results will ordinarily be posted at the same time but may follow slightly later in a post reserved prior to the scrambles. Forthcoming results and scrambles will be posted in separate threads.
    • I will allow late posting of times but please clearly mark the round and make a note that it is a 'Backfilled Time' - I will then endeavor to alter the relevant results post. Please note depending on the practicality of adminiistering, this rule may be withdrawn in the future.
    • I fully support constructive discussion within the thread, please feel free to use the thread for 4x4 on topic discussion between the participants and forum members but please refrain from trolling and/or spamming!
    • Where a specific thread rule is not covered please assume WCA regulations, if there is some ambiguity on something please feel free to ask within the thread or alternatively send me a forum private message.
    • Finally, the best of luck in attaining your goals, lets get cubing!

    Pretty good average for me! But I think that we should have a "Race to Sub-1:30 4x4" Thread first.
