    [NAR] Drew Brads - 4.76 3x3 Single

    Thanks everyone! This is simply fantastic. Rudest post in a while. Also that's the point of his post. The difference in the times is now within the margin of error in the stackmat timers. (at least according to him. I don't know anything about it). Here's a cool post, my first unofficial 4...

    Do you make friends at competitions?

    Stalk people until you find someone around your speed, then ask if you can grab a chair and warm up by racing. Ask questions about cubes and methods to the people around you. When you're in the competitor area waiting to solve, ask people how they're times are etc. Eventually, you'll get to know...

    [Help Thread] Pyraminx Discussion

    I've messed with it. I only ever use the five move cases. intentionally placing two edges in the top that you will for sure have to take back out is pretty inefficient.

    [OcR] Feliks Zemdegs 3x3 single - 5.32

    Since June 25 2011 Feliks has dropped his pb 3x3 single by 0.34 seconds. In the same period of time, I have dropped my 3x3 pb single 22.96 seconds. I'm crushing this nub.

    Moyu should stop releasing so many cubes..?

    I think part of the problem is that people think of all the different sub brands as just one company. This year MoYu itself has only released WeiPo 2x2, WeiLong GTS 3x3, BoChuang and WeiChuang 5x5s, and soon the magnetic skewb and pyraminx. The only repeat is 5x5 and both of those puzzles were...

    Proposal: Allowing audio equipment during official attempts

    Sorry, I should have reiterated. You're not allowed to refute my points because I don't feel like arguing. Just accept me for who I am.

    Proposal: Allowing audio equipment during official attempts

    Yeah but if some random guy starts throwing down fours it's pretty easy to realize he's faking. Just ask him to explain his solution or do some more since. The only way I can think that this would really cause a problem is in "big finals" where competitors come out in twos. Theoretically an...

    Proposal: Allowing audio equipment during official attempts

    If you are using headphones to dictate algs then you suck so bad that I don't care if you cheat. As it stands now, competitors can still pretty easily share solutions with each other in the competitor area without using communication devices (See Rami's 0.58). We're operating on a trust system...
