    Proposal Regarding BLD Orientation

    Reorienting of the cube is not the part of puzzle memorization and puzzle solving. Let's allow judge to reorient it. Lifting the puzzle cover is not the part of memorization and solving. Let's ask judge to lift the cover. Putting the blindfold on is not the part of memorization and solving...

    Online block 2x2x2 trainer

    Update: several new tasks concerning Roux blockbuilding. Please let me know what you think about it. Also you can request new tasks, and maybe I will implement them.

    Proposal: Video Evidence Should NOT be used to overturn official records

    My 2 cents: once upon a time I was a scrambler-checker for Clock (I guess this was the only time we used scrambler-checkers). Scramblers knew that I checked them, despite that they still made errors (I found about 5 misscrambles).

    Proposal: Video Evidence Should NOT be used to overturn official records

    Apparently by "first letter of their name and surname" I meant initials

    Proposal: Video Evidence Should NOT be used to overturn official records

    I attended only one competition in USA, but I noticed that everyone signs scorecards using first letter of their name and surname. At other competitions I've visited (mostly east Europe) signs mostly are letters from name and/or surname outlined (and often crossed) with circles, flourishes...

    Online block 2x2x2 trainer

    Update: Added another task. You have already built 2x2x2 block and want to expand it to 2x2x3 block. PS: While every 2x2x2 block can be built in 8 moves, there is one possible situation of 2x2x3 block that can be built in 9 moves, it is with 2 flipped edges: U F2 D2 R D2 F2 U' D' B. I didn't...

    Should 3x3x3 With Feet Remain an Official WCA Event?

    It is. I already remember discussing if feet solvers use algs different from 2h/oh solvers.

    Ok, done. Btw, stats for optimal alg counts: That means that, for example, among all states that can be solved in 4 moves 5640 states have only one optimal algorithm, 1119 have two optimal algorithms, 260 have three and so on.

    Cannot into block building? This trainer will help you (I hope). Select level (the more is the level, the more moves you need to build 2x2x2 block), it will give you the scramble. Try to solve it optimally. Press "Solve" and it will give you the right answer...

    Proposal: allow a move limit for FMC

    In our competitions I see here and there people who use simple CFOP with PLL skip and get sub-35. Our NR (26 moves) is set with CFOP with OLL skip, though there is a splendid double X-cross. So person who just try a bunch of CFOP solves with different crosses, pair order etc. can get a good...

    Proposal: allow a move limit for FMC

    Example of applying A1c: A competitor registers for 3x3 bld, while not knowing how to solve it bld. During his attempt he looks at the cube for ten seconds, then puts on his blindfold and starts applying random moves. After taking off his blindfold he looks at his scrambled cube and exclaims...

    [Proposal] Pyraminx Scramble filtering should be 6 turns.

    As for the filtering limit, idc.
