    For the weekly competition, we are now accepting results either of two ways:
    1. Use http://odderen.dk/. You will need to log in; please use the same username that you use on speedsolving.com! (You may feel free to use a different password, but use the same username.) Hopefully use of the website to enter your times will be self-explanatory, please post here or email Odder if you have questions.
    2. Post here, as usual.

    If you have posts in both places, for now we will give priority to posts within the thread, in case there are difficulties with the website. This is an experiment; if it works well, we hope to eventually go to full automation.

    We follow the WCA regulations for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know, or are different from the regulations:

    • For Multi-BLD you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 30 scrambles is not enough). If you attempt 5 cubes you must use the first 5 scrambles.
    • For one-handed you can use both hands during inspection.
    • For with feet you can only use feet during inspection.
    • For 3x3x3 Fewest Moves there is a 1 hour time limit.
    • For relay you have 15 seconds of inspection in total, you can use any order to solve the cubes and the rest of the relay-rules should be obvious.
    • 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 will use an average of 5.

    Notation and scrambling:
    • For all events (other than skewb) the Mark2 scrambler will be used.
    • For 4x4x4 and 5x5x5, a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
    • For 6x6x6 and 7x7x7, a number before the letter indicates the amount of layers to turn like a wide turn. "3U2" would mean "turn the 3 uppermost layers a half turn".
    • For Megaminx, Pochmann notation will be used.
    • For Square-1, 2x2x2, and 3x3x3, near-optimal random state scrambles will be used.
    • For Square1, the newest official scrambler is being used. This adds a slash whenever a slice move is to be applied.
    • For Clock, a shortened version of the official notation is used.
    • For Pyraminx, small letters are for the tips
    • Skewb scrambles are generated using Chen Shuang's scrambler, which uses Fixed Corner Notation.

    This competition starts now and ends Monday/Tuesday nightchange GMT (officially). Automated results will close at the official time, but if you are slightly late, go ahead and post your results here and we will include them at our discretion if we think it's reasonable.

    I suspect there will be some issues as we roll this new approach out; please let me know if you have any problems or questions.

    I got a surprising 31 move solve for fewest moves this week.

    Scramble: U' L' F' D B' R' D R F2 U' L2 F2 U2 B2 U2 R' F2 R' U2 R U2
    Solution: R L2 U' B U2 L2 B L U L2 D R2 D2 F' R' F R' F B L' U2 L B' D2 B L' U2 L B' D' F'

    2x2x3: R L2 U' B U2 L2 B L U L2
    switch to inverse scramble:
    3x cross: F D' F' with premoves D2 R2 D'
    Then, amazingly, solve all but 2 corners: R F' R F
    Putting it together, we get: R L2 U' B U2 L2 B L U L2 D R2 D2 F' R' F R' F . D F' in just 20 moves!
    Unfortunately, that leaves 2 corners twisted. :(
    Insert at .: B L' U2 L B' D2 B L' U2 L B' D2
    D2 D become D' after insertion.

    So disappointing - if you figure I had a 1 in 3 chance of those corners being twisted correctly, I had a 1 in 3 chance at a 20 move solution! :)

    Hi Mike,

    If I may a suggestion, with 2 or 3 twisted corners, it's better to permute them twice. With 2 corners, you have so much liberty for the first permutation that you're almost sure to get at least 4 moves cancelled.

    In your solution, I found 4 places where you can get 5 moves cancelled. Here are two. But maybe you hadn't enough time for this.

    Nevertheless, congratulations. 31 is great and your solution is elegant.
    R L2 U' B U2 L2 B L U [1] L2 D R2 D2 F' R' [2] F R' F D F'

    [1] : (D R D' L2 D R' D' L2) : 5 moves cancelled
    [2] : (R B' R' F R B R' F') : 5 moves cancelled

    With 23 HTM and 3 corners to permute, you can't get more than 31. However, I didn't investigate further.

    Wow, I completely forgot about this trick. I actually found my solution with a half hour left, so I had plenty of time to look for something like this. Oops. Thanks for the reminder - I'll try to remember to do this in the future.

    Switch to inverse:
    L' R' F' D R' D' R [F2L+EO]
    L F' L2 B' R U2 R' B L2 F L' F' [ZBLL]

    imho pretty cool solution, but meh length
