    Memory Methods

    I often had trouble recalling people in PAO, and I've had other cubers tell me the same. I think it can work well, but it's difficult. Imagining how the person would react to what they're doing is much more helpful than just picturing them doing it. (The following is more geared towards multi...

    Sums and ranks/means for the weeklies year 2015 through 2020

    I think there's an error with MBld sorting.

    Should events be dropped for the 2021 Weekly Competition?

    I would consider changing the relays to 2-7, 2-4, and 5-7. Maybe the events could be grouped (like, NxNs, Bld, etc.), possibly with a toggle on each group to hide an entire group at once. Although I don't know exactly what the groupings would be.

    How to Memo Letter Pairs

    As others have said, if a pair is 'easy' then you probably should usually just use the first thing that comes to mind during a solve (unless the first thing that comes to mind is hard to visualize/remember or clashes with another pair) and eventually it will be automatic and you can add it to...

    The Layer by Layer Podcast

    @ColorfulPockets I was definitely not asking you to shame Kit lol. It's just that you guys were discussing that you used to keep track of everything in your head and said it wasn't working as well anymore. I also used to keep track of everything in my head too, and it worked fine. These methods...

    Blindfold Accomplishment Thread

    From the Weekly Competition. After 11 consecutive DNFs, I got 8 successes out of the next 9 attempts. Scramble & Reconstruction 3:20.25 = 1:51.37 + 1:28.88 Former PB was 3:53. PB exec by quite a lot. It just went really smoothly, and I picked a good orientation pretty quickly. And exec is...

    Intuitive 3-Style as a Beginner Blind Method

    I found using real words, even for audio, is helpful. Like Lid or Lad, Lob or Lab, Live or Love. Even if Lad can still sound like Lab, I find it much less likely that I'll confuse them. Even though I'm not picturing the word or anything, it just seems that the sound of a real word is harder to...

    Intuitive 3-Style as a Beginner Blind Method

    I'd recommend using other sounds or consonant clusters instead of C or Q, such as sh, st, ch. It's works really well for audio, and can also work well for images if you want consistency. Personally, my system is entirely phonetic. For example, for Ksh I use 'caution' (or 'cushion').

    Multiblindfold Discussion (PBs, Successes, Fails)

    I've been using weak swap for a long time. It's so automatic now, occasionally I accidentally do it in 3BLD. Graham and I actually co-created the method. He showed me a special case, then I realized it could be done more generally, and together we ironed out the details. It has a few other...

    Weekly Competition 2020-11

    I forgot to hit submit on last week's multi attempt after I finished it on Sunday, and then when I found it later on Monday and hit submit, I think it got entered for this week (11) instead of last week (10). Sorry about that, can it be fixed? Edit: Fixed, thanks Mike.

    One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

    You should definitely sign up for 4x4x4 then. You are far under the time limit of 4:00 so you won't get DNFed for going over. You won't make the 1:30 cutoff, which means that you'll only get to do your first two solves.

    One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

    I think when you refer to cutoff, you mean time limit. You are only stopped and given a DNF when you reach the time limit. The cutoff just determines how many solves you get to do. (cutoff \leq time limit) If you think it's unlikely (I'm not sure there's an exact point, such as 50%, that I...
