This brings up an interesting point.

Perhaps we should start collecting more information about a competitor during the registration process. This would allow for more in-depth analysis of results by region, gender, etc. The WCA is still pretty small, but it is growing quite fast. I think it would be great to eventually have more information about each competitor which can be entered into the database and analyzed. I think now is a good time to start.
Well that's make me a little happier, glad the idea popped up. So I guess the best way to start is to make sure people on this site add themselves to the list on the Wiki. Those links take you to their profiles, and if they have a WCA profile, there's a link to those from there.

I agree. Although I wouldn't think of it as a big deal if I was the fastest in Alabama, it'd still be cool to have a breakdown of the cubing world by state.
Yeah, it would one of those things you tell any friends of yours that are interested in your cubing, and I have several of them. ;)

I think I'd hold the state record for Michigan... unless there are other MI cubers I'm unaware of. xP
If I ever move back in the future, I'll give you a run for your... ______?

Jon Morris.
Yeah, I just thought of him minutes after posting.

And IamWEB, if such classification were to exist, I'm pretty sure you can pick your state like people do country, you either live or originate there.

Oh, and by Texas records I mean this:

The best time achieved by a USA citizen during a competition held within Texas state lines.
OutOfComp. - The best time achieved by a USA citizen who resides in Texas, while in Texas. Well, I wonder if it would count if I went out of state for a week and broke a record here, and then came back?

In WCA comps, you represent your home country, regardless of where you are.
So actually, as long as you live in Texas, it should count...

After checking records, the best time that fits the qualifications is 13.97
I still had my Texas license when I did my 13.22 :p Do I win?

Tim Sun is from NJ originally.


So, I think i have the PA records for:

4x4 Single
5x5 Single/Average
6x6 Single/Average
7x7 Single/Average
Megaminx Single/Average
Square-1 Single/Average
Clock Average

The other events are probable, but I'm quite sure about those events ;)

Exactly! Honestly though, it would be nice to have a state-by-state breakdown within the US. It would definitely let me know of other cubers out there that live in my area. It could also give easier access to contact local people about possible competitions.

I believe that is part of what cubingusa.com was designed for.

I have every possible Gottlieb record. But that was an easy one.

I also have the Michael records for 3x3 single, 4x4 single/avg, 5x5 single/avg, 7x7 single/avg, OH single/avg, fewest moves, megaminx single/avg, pyraminx single/avg, clock single/avg, magic single/avg, and master magic single/avg. (Note I'm not counting people named Michal, since that's spelled differently.)

Well, seeing as how I'm from Missouri you also hold the record for Clock Single, and then somebody else (not you, too lazy to check) holds the record for 2x2 single. Unless flooom is from PA, then I wouldnt have held it anyway.

I hold MO records for:
2x2 single
Clock single and avg
Sq1 single and avg
and I think I am tied with Waris for Magic avg, and I have single by .01

everything else belongs to either Waris, Siraj, or Ravi.

I claim Leyan Lo in the name of New Jersey! :p
Do I count as New Jersey as well?

Not sure where Tim Sun or Joseph Gibney originate from exactly.
What, I told you before. :p

I claim all "Tim" or "Timothy" records: 3x3 single/average, 4x4 single/average, 5x5 single/average, 2x2 single/average, 3x3BLD, 3x3OH single/average, megaminx single/mean, Square-1 single/mean, Magic single/mean, MM average, 3f single/mean.

For "Sun," I got it all. :p

Yup, that was basically the main point of CubingUSA.com.

For the competitions I've run (MN Open 2007/2008, WI Open 2008, Twin Cities 2009), I've collected participant's zip code. This helps me determine where competitors are from (for future competitions), and when planning events. For example, I can tell that no local competitors participate in blindfold, so I don't bother to put it on the schedule, and will add it if someone asks.

But yeah, if people registered on CubingUSA.com, I could periodically grab the WCA results and determine the State record holders.

Well lucky you. I personally have been having a lot of trouble with all the "T. Mao" speedsolve records.

Sorry! Didn't even know about CubingUSA.com.
