    WCA Regulations - Out of Hand?

    Remember, one could easily forge initials/draw an arrow down after the first solve on another competitor's score sheet. Then the sabotaged competitor would be violating A7c2 and would be forced to take DNSes. This does nothing to help prevent tapering of scoresheets. Another option? Volunteer...

    I don't think competitor signing is needed at all. Judges should sign in case there's a case of bad handwriting or something. I think that as soon as the competitor leaves the immediate area around the table, the competitor is considered to have agreed with the final time. The argument that...

    Remove 3x3x3 with Feet as an Official Event?

    A good question to ask is what is the difference between having feet be an official event and say, one handed. The only difference I see here is the gross factor.

    Java 3x3 Scrambler

    RL is a valid scramble, and this scrambler doesn't seem to allow that. I'll leave you to figure that one out :P. The structure of the code is fine though, and interesting way of keeping track of the axis. Also, instead of using a switch statement, you can use an array and have the index be a...

    This record is DNF but...

    We can't hear for sure whether or not the judge said the time in the video. But you would be correct if the judge did not.

    WCA Documents: Updated January 1, 2013

    It is the competitor's responsibility to know the rules. If there is ever a question, the competitor can still ask for the delegate to make the judgement call.

    That wouldn't be a defect of the puzzle then. That would be like taking a sledge hammer to a timer and calling it a timer defect.
