Hello everyone. I checked back in after over 3 years of being absent on the forums (too busy playing Eldevin :p) and I realized that the format of bb code for tables had changed so I am reposting this with fixed tables.
(I would just edit and bump my old thread but it will not let me save edits...
Generally, whenever looking for a speedsolving method, "Does it look cool?" would never cross my mind and "How easy is it to learn?", crosses my mind, but has no impact on my evaluation of the method.
Ease of learning doesn't impact the mathematical promise of the method, it just deters the...
Here are my results:
Mind - 95% Introverted
Energy - 16% Observant
Nature - 24% Thinking
Tactics - 53% Judging
Identity - 25% Turbulent
I agree with rowan that these tests are pretty inaccurate and you could probably know someone better...
When I was relatively new, I asked a very similar question. I will do my best to explain why this doesn't work.
If you add up every possible 1 move alg, 2 move alg, and so on, you will reach 43 quintillion after 18 moves. The reason for this is that a 15 move alg may solve the same position of...
On the twisty puzzles forum, there is a general consensus that Eitan's Star (it has 20 sides) is the most challenging twisty puzzle made so far. I'd love to get one for myself, but it costs $100.
Here is a picture:
Haha... After 4 years I'm still only sub-30. I'm sure after a few averages of 5, I'd get a sub-25 average, but I very rarely time my solves. I'm sure that if I tried, I could get sub-20 pretty quick, but I still don't know what method I want to be my main.
Well, I come up with all sorts of ideas, but they only serve to occupy the readers time since no one uses them (myself included for most of them). I really think just answering a few questions here and there helps out though.
To StachuK: Don't be so modest. algdb.net is really nice.
I thought it was about time I made a more detailed post about this. First off, you need to know how I numbered the stickers.
After learning this, you should be able to use this same recognition with a different corner (instead of UFL) without too much trouble. This...

Personally, I like the 15 puzzle, but it is not a twisty puzzle. I would be fine with letting the WCA govern twisty and sliding puzzles, but then you run into the problem of where to draw the line. Also, I think 9a (Rubik's puzzles) should be gotten rid of. Why should the...
