    This is going to work pretty much like the other forum competitions and race threads, but there's no specific time to reach, this is just a race for everyone. We can compare our times and see who improves each month . This is an average of 10,000, which I know can take a little longer than an average of 12, but some people are already completing several hundred solves a day for their normal practice routine, so I think it's definitely doable to do about 300 every day. Or, you could only go for 200 a day on weekdays, and then do 500 or more on the weekend. Whatever you like - your choice!

    Anyone can participate, no matter how fast you are, but complete all the scrambles, and make sure to post all your times. Only serious submissions, please.

    Start whenever you want - just make sure to finish in a month (or 30 days). Please keep track of your times in a text document, spreadsheet, or offline timer - the way qqtimer stores times just isn't robust enough to deal with this many. I made a statistics tool that you can use to calculate averages and stuff from your saved times. If you're importing times, they should be more or less in qqtimer's format (something like this: 18.77, 19.70, (12.51), 19.91+, etc.).

    WINNERS SO FAR (and people who got close):
    WINNER: janelle - 10000 solves finished!!!! 17.87 seconds average.
    coulenez - 8389 solves finished

    A bit unnecessary? This would take me forever...

  3. This made me lol, even if it is a copy of my thread.
     
  4. I don't think "copy" is quite the right word.
     
  5. Then what is?

    I'm pretty sure he just wanted to make fun of you.
     
  8. For a perfectly good thread? I didn't see anything wrong with it.

    This wasn't intended to be mean-spirited or anything, just a fun joke thread. It's funny to imagine what it'd be like to actually have people regularly doing 10,000 cube marathons.

    And hey, if you want, you could actually try it... :p

    Really?
     
  11. I calculated it, and it would take over 4 days of nonstop cubing for even one of the fastest cubers to do this many solves and scrambles. Hahah... I wonder if anyone would ever actually attempt?

    joke aside
    you wouldn't improve because you would get tired after 1000 solves and you would start to hate the cube :p
    avg of 50-100 a day is sufficient to improve!

    Good luck to all participants! Gaining enough spare time would have to be the most difficult challenge. Whoever completes all the scrambles within a week deserves a clap.

    One with a 10.58 solving average and a 4.79 scrambling average, for example, would spend 47.900 seconds scrambling the cube 10.000 times, and spend 105.800 seconds solving the cube.

    That's a total of 153.700 seconds to scramble and solve the cube 10.000 times. That is 2.561 minutes and 40 seconds, or 42 hours, 41 minutes and 40 seconds. That means one should solve approximately 6 hours and 6 minutes a day, so it is certainly not impossible.

    One could split the 6 hours in an attempt to make it less boring. One could cube 2 hours and 2 minutes from 8 am till 10:02 am, from 2 pm till 4:02 pm, and from 8 pm till 10:02 pm, for an entire week, and solve 10.000 cubes.

    That's just for one who has a 10.58 average... *sigh*
