    Role of Creativity in Speedcubing

    Hi. Yes I will use data from WCA profiles to measure proficiency. I am not being too biased about which values to use and I plan to play around with different values a bit. About subjective self-assessment of creativity, that is a well established scale in Psychology with a good level of...

    Are parents the major reason for speedcubers in India being slow?

    To OP, I hope you do realise that post is incredibly old and we have come a long way since then, we have had AsR's and WR's now. And a league past all the statistics that were made in the original post calling indian cubers slow. As Drew pointed out the number of sub10 solvers, of course it is...

    [WR] Feliks Zemdegs 3x3 OH single 6.88

    6x6 algorithm finder?

    Commutators will do the job surely. But For general interest, I am curious to know if there is a general algorithm finder with a good GUI for non 3x3 puzzles? And if there is not, is it because of computation complexity being too hard to do it or only because no one has spent the time on it?

    [Help Thread] The "Square-1 Help / Alg Sharing" thread

    Thanks for your comment. It is very motivating to see your turn speed. My lookahead is pretty non-existent at the moment. I will surely try to implement what you are saying in my solves. Also, currently i have been just using the advanced cubeshape video by David Woner. I will then surely start...
