How exactly do redi scrambles work? I couldnt find a source for this scrambler and I dont wanna misscramble a fast event.
The best description I could find for the notation is for skewb, not redi, but it should be obvious how it works for redi (just twist the same corners). It's also in Japanese, but the videos are pretty self-explanatory, so I don't think the language matters much:

I'm pretty sure Mike has done those himself.
Yes, fortunately I had time to do them before the turn of the year - barely! (I was finishing them up that morning.)

I will be submitting a pull request to the WCA repository with them later this week. All our other unofficial event icons are already in their repository. So if you would like to use them, generally the place to get them is the WCA repository:
https://github.com/cubing/icons

Note that master pyraminx and redi cube are not there yet; I have to submit a pull request, and then hope that they approve it. :)

In my personal records it says that I made place 1 in 4bld. Obviously the mean is counted. Henry David's personal records show place 2, this would be his Mo3-rank (off-topic: I' m less than 5s in addition faster than him :cool:). Our "normal" ranks in the weekly-results-list are 5 and 6.

Thanks for pointing it out. I hope I have fixed it.
This is just another example of how expanding fewest moves to mean of 3 affected almost EVERYTHING in the software! Lesson: never build in assumptions if you can help it.

Please let me know if you see any other problems.
