    Any cubers in central Scotland?

    I'm not getting much time to practise these days (and it's only going to get worse soon), but I'm really hoping I can make it and see what Scottish cubers have been kicking around.

    A Domino Reduction Guide for FMC

    Cool! Looks like a good guide from what I've read so far, and should be fun to try using this in solves.

    WRs! Sebastiano Tronto 22 mean and 16 single at FMC 2019!

    KewbzUK - The UK's Largest Speed Cube Shop

    Do you have a rough idea on the clocks being available? Picking up actually good hardware might be enough to make me practise and try developing noflip more.

    Duplex Method

    Cool to see you posting! I've got the link bookmarked I'll check it out soon, I'm curious about what progress you've made on this.

    Will Clock get removed as an official event?

    No, I made the noflip method years ago and demoed it in comp. Nobody seems to care about using a method that's faster and more interesting though, they'd rather just complain about the normal method.

    How the 3.47 WR changes cubing

    I'd recommend not taking lucky singles too seriously, average is generally seen as a better indication of skill (though getting sub 4 on a good scramble still takes a lot of skill). I'd also recommend making sure the main reason you cube is to have fun. It's a hobby. Not that going for WR is a...

    Software Upgrades Today

    It's one I have read, but not since the recent forum change. It seems like if I have read any of it in the past few days it works correctly. I'm clicking the thread title in the "new posts" section.

    Software Upgrades Today

    Idea: Alternating 1 Year event

    Interesting, I think it could be worth considering as a preferred unofficial event, which would eliminate the WCA related problems. As for timescales and big competitions, maybe introduce one each year but have it last for say two years. Each event gets more time to be held, but it still gets...
