The competitor list seems to take exponentially longer to load the longer it gets, at least that's how it appears to me, and maybe these queries are adversely loading the server. The number of registrations has slowed down and ~700 in 1.5 days is hardly enough to kill a server anyway.

That would be a good idea even at small comps. I went to a comp with only 80 competitors and there was another Joel in the same heat as me and it was quite confusing lol.
Yes, my cube has ended up with the wrong competitor more than once. In 3BLD at the UKs it got to the execution phase before it was noticed.

This is why I use my own apparently bizarre sticker scheme and logos. Nobody ever confuses one of my cubes for theirs, and vice versa.

...Except those who have brought one of my own previous mains. Which is becoming a rapidly increasing number of UK cubers. Hmmmmmmm. Change in sticker scheme time?

I really should have taken the logos off of all the cubes I have sold.

I've paid and I'm 30th on the waiting list. Any idea of the likelihood of me making it on?
I'm not sure. It says there are 1000 competitors registered.

Actually there's 1 thing I don't understand, how are there 39 first timers if the requirement for 3x3 is an official time in 3x3? Are they planning on going to another competition before worlds? If so, and they happen to not make it then I guess they could clear those 39 spots up.

I would imagine that many of those competitors are indeed planning on attending another event before June 18th, but it's likely that many did not read the qualification requirements.
