Thanks for letting know! This thread has been maintained by Enoch for the last couple of years, not sure why he stopped updating. I have added every result that has been posted, everything must be up-to-date now ;)
Hi Roman, tanks for your work!
But I think you typed in a "." instead of a ":" between minutes and seconds in Bradleys solve - nice for him to lead the ranking now ;)

6BLD 8:58.97[3:55.91]

Great to see you've improved so much after all this time, and I figured you just had quit cubing altogether :p

Did you actually update it on this page, Roman? Looks like it must've been reverted to a previous version or something. I actually could have sworn I updated it about a year ago when I got the 7:17 6bld and 13:21 7bld, and yet neither of those are even there anymore.

Ok, I've updated it with my 7:17 6bld and 13:12 7bld. As far as I can tell, those were the only two things missing. Kinda weird, not sure why that was. Just specifically my two current 6bld and 7bld WBs lol

I totally missed your 6BLD and 7BLD UWRs. Is this a mysticism? I haven't seen them in this thread, on YouTube nor in the rankings, and I just discovered them now.
Hmm, so UWR is 7:17 right? I probably wouldn't have had that much passion for 6BLD if I knew I'm pretty far away from it :D

Just did my second ever 6BLD attempt in 1 hour 40 minutes. Was a DNF again, but this time was SO much closer than last time. If I had remembered to do corners parity at the very end (I was kinda rushing near the end and forgot), it would have been only 12 unsolved pieces.
Partway through the solve I realized I did some execution wrong and had to backtrack to fix it, and looking back now, I correctly fixed my mistake, which I'm proud of.

Hopefully soon I'll be the first person to successfully do 6BLD before 5BLD ;D (I think anyway)

I got a success in megaminx blindfolded. Time is 35:10, with 21:38 memo. I'm from Italy.

Enoch wrote his memo here: https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/megaminx-mk-gigaminx-bld-thread.42813/page-3#post-1234803
and added a few posts later https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/megaminx-mk-gigaminx-bld-thread.42813/page-3#post-1247948

Normally I would say that this is pretty complicated only to save same memory amount, but his results show that it works very well for him.
But for all others using letterpairs I would suggest Cale's method, maybe AM,AN,AO,AP,AQ,BM,BN,BO...LP,LQ to avoid AA, BB ....
@Cale S : I would name the faces from A-L, or do you take specific letters for colors? Like B=blue, G=green?

I would like to provide an update on this. I used the color method for memo for a while but I have since transitioned away from it. It was useful but it is definitely not the best method.

My most recent memo method uses a similar idea as the colors, but uses a letter instead of a color. The puzzle is divided into 3 sections: Straight, Curved, and Empty. Each section has 20 letters A-T. To memorize two pieces, I will memo each of their letters, then combine the shapes of the sections into a third letter. I memorize images of 3 letter pairs that represent 4 pieces.

For example: the first four pieces are Straight M, Curved P, Straight E, Empty R.

I would memo MP DE RL.

MP is the first two letters, and D represents straight-curved. Then ER are the next two letters, and L represents straight-empty.

This method is quite similar to the color method but it relies only on letters, which is better since I use only letters for all other types of BLD solving.
