General Speedsolving Updates

As 2012 winds down, we'd like to wish you all a happy holiday season. 2013 will be the 7th year that Speedsolving.com has been active, and it is only possible because of the community that has built it. We all share the passion of solving one aspect or another of these twisty puzzles, and it is a privilege that the internet provides a way for us to build a platform like Speedsolving.com. The people who makeup the community are the members who help each other and share ideas daily, the people who meet at competitions and become friends, and the moderators who keep the forum an enjoyable place to browse and learn. It isn't always perfect, but know that we are constantly trying to make Speedsolving.com better.

Make a special effort to enjoy yourself and your family during your leisure time this holiday season. Make the most of whats left in 2012.

2012 was a unique year for Speedsolving.com. Aside from the constant growth, we changed the way the site was run by implementing more strict posting rules to prevent redundant and wasteful posts. We also transformed the wiki to its own site, and developed a puzzle shop. We look forward to see what 2013 will bring for Speedsolving.com and for the cubing community.
