    Trying to learn Full ZBLL

    ZBLL is a big commitment! I'm not saying you can't do it, but I've seen people make the claim time and time again that they're going to learn full ZBLL only to give up after a week. You should definitely go for it if this is something you really want to do, but make sure you understand how much...

    I would like a cubing channel but....

    What are her reasons for not letting you? There are a lot of valid reasons parents might not want their kids posting so publicly about themselves, but you might be able to compromise depending on how strict her rules are. For example, if she's worried about strangers on the internet being able...

    What is the longest break you have taken from cubing, and Why?

    I don't know if I've ever gone for more than a day or two without touching a cube since I learned back in 2012. I think I went for a week or so without actually sitting down and timing myself at the start of my first year at university; I remember it feeling really weird to have not *seriously*...

    7 Unbelievable Facts You DIDN'T Know About DGCubes!

    Nah these are actually all facts! :p

    How Many Algorithms Do You Have Memorized ?

    Full OLL/PLL and ~40-50 ZBLL/COLL algs puts me around 120. I could probably push myself up to the 151-200 or 201+ range if you count random alternate PLLs and intuitive comms/F2L cases, but I don't like to count intuitive stuff as algs.

    One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

    Yup, I've seen it done before quite a few times. :)

    The megaminx notation

    It was suggested by Stefan Pochmann in 2007 in this thread. You're right that it can't reach all possible states (in fact, it can only reach ~10^21 of the ~10^68 states); that was discussed in this thread.

    What cubes should be removed from the WCA?

    Ah, gotcha. I think variety is really important in cubing. We have plenty of spectator-friendly events (all the short events, OH, Feet, and BigBLD execution come to mind), but it's important to cater to the competitors as well. FMC is essentially a bunch of people sitting down for a test, so I...

    What cubes should be removed from the WCA?

    Sure, it takes 1 hour for 1 person to do FMC, but it also takes 1 hour for 100 people to do FMC. Same thing goes for 3x3; multiple people are solving at once, so it's quite possible to fit ~100 competitors in an hour.

    [Help Thread] How to Get Faster using the Fridrich / CFOP Method

    Definitely possible, but I'd need more information about your progress/practice habits to say if it's likely. I personally was averaging mid-11 about two years ago and still haven't quite reached sub-10. Others have gotten sub-10 within their first year of cubing. :p I'd say it mainly comes...

    One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

    Definitely check with your delegate before you use anything like that; you can't use electronic headphones at all, even if no music is playing.

    UWR Pyra 0.71 ao5 1.29 ao12 by Dylan Chan!

    If we could have a video of him executing the 0.645 and 0.658 solves sub-0.7, I'd be much more likely to believe this. (Ideally I'd like to see him do all of these solves in the times he claims, but if that's too much to ask, I think the 2 fastest should suffice. I don't really care if it takes...

    Exporting Photos

    Alternatively, save it as a different file type; JPEGs are generally smaller than PNGs. Realistically I'd just put it in MS Paint and resize until it's small enough though.
