Isn't running during your own heat against the regs?

:3, did awful in those rounds that I stood to do the solves though :p

nope
WCA REGULATIONS said:
1h1) Scramblers and judges for a round should not scramble for/judge competitors in their own group before they have finished all of their attempts for the round. They may scramble for/judge competitors in their own group at the discretion of the WCA Delegate, but the organisation team must ensure that scramblers and judges cannot see any scrambles for their attempts that they have not attempted yet.
so 1, not a judge / scrambler and 2 I never looked at the puzzles, just took the scorecards out of the box and yelled the name and set it on the table.

uhhh idk. I can see why it would be, but again, idk. Maybe he wasn't.
Indeed I was, that's why it's up to the delegate to decide if okay or not. I was running around in circles getting dizzy :)

My nominations:
Best Parent: Cari Goslow, once again amazing
Best Cubing Couple: Kit Clemet and his fiance Lauren Klemz

You're right in that it is not explicitly disallowed, but this is mostly because the regulations don't recognize the role of a runner, as it's not necessary to have them in a competition. Generally, it's difficult to not unintentionally see the scrambles when running, which violates other regulations, and is thus frowned upon. Admittedly, I will do it sometimes when it's my heat to get things moving in a competition, but I try to quickly pass this off to someone else.

Best category: Best Beard (you're welcome, Ryan)

Waaaaaay too many awards. May as well just give something to everyone.

Friendly reminder: Please be respectful with your nominations and consider whether you're putting down other members.

In particular, please refrain from making nominations for categories such as "dumbest thread", "dumbest member", "worst new member", etc.
Boooooooo you're ruining the most fun part of this exercise.
