    The rule which could apply: A3c1) The competitor must not apply moves during inspection. Penalty: disqualification of the attempt (DNF). What specifically a "move" is is not clearly defined.

    [WR] Leandro Martín López 29.27 Megaminx Average

    It's hard to tell for certain that it was turned more than the allowable limit.

    The FMC thread

    Corners are close to solved when the cube is in HTR. When doing DR to HTR the corners are brought closer to a state which is solved. Doing moves that bring the corners closer to solve is a good strategy to make your DR to HTR work. F2 D R2 D and D2 R2 U' R2 U solve different HTR cases, if one...

    The FMC thread

    It must have an odd number of quarter turns for it possibly work. It could still not work though.

    The FMC thread

    The quarter turns in DR to HTR must have the same parity as DR to solved (DR to solved has the same parity as DR to solved corners which is an easier way to determine the parity). If it does not then the corners will not be in HTR. These are the DR corner cases (minus symmetries and AUFs/ADFs)...

    [WR] Tymon Kolasinski - 5.09 3x3 Average

    Is Tymon the first person to hold 3x3x3 and Pyraminx average world records simultaneously? Edit: Yes he is. It took me about 1 minute to check. I probably should have done it first. Also, he is the first person to hold both these records at all.

    World map on countries that can hold competitions (August 2021)

    I don't think Australia will be holding many (if any) competitions in the future. Being an island nation it's possible to eliminate coronavirus and cut international arrivals to a level where there is <1 month of lockdowns/restrictions per year for outbreaks. You could live as COVID-19 did not...

    The FMC thread

    100% DR is good enough for low 21 global averages (possibly sub 21 too). If your not having success with DR there are probably some areas that you are not good at but could easily improve. Some tips: (1) Do DR 100% of time. (2) Do HTR 100% of time (or close to). (3) Make sure you can find all...
