    [Unofficial] Feliks Zemdegs vs Max Park - Red Bull World Cup 2019

    Does anyone know if that scramble protector that the scrambler is using, is something that competitions will be able to use for the "Scramble secrecy" regulations that the WCA seems like they will be enforcing? And what I mean is even something a little bigger to cover more area.

    Random Cubing Discussion

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but from what I have read on GitHub, the survey's are something that they are working on still, and will be released within the next few months (maybe once they get the WCA forums up and running).

    [Help Thread] Colour Neutral Transition Thread

    You sound like me when I switched to full CN last year. My tip would be to keep practicing on all colors and overtime you will get back to 16, 15, 14etc. Something else that I would say to try is solve on any side other then White and Yellow, and once you get to 16 or so on the four other...

    3x3 With Feet Getting Removed

    So although this link: is intended for the idea of creating Tiers for events in the WCA, most of the talk in that link is related to 3x3 FT and if it should be relegated to a class 2 tier or be removed altogether, and as you will see several...

    What should be fair cutoffs for competitions.

    So after the recent competition I organized and having talked to some of the competitors and delegate, I am a bit more for stricter cutoff times for competitions. And here are some reasons (most of which the delegate mentioned) but that make sense. Also, these ideas are not fully mine, but...

I do agree that sometimes it is hard to get a scrambler that you or someone (such as the delegate trust), but for the most part you can find at least one one person. However, something that I was just talking to...
