yeah, my point was just that the quote isn't current, which could be misleading, just like how he has "world records" etc listed instead of "former world records"
He isn't explicitly saying that the records listed are current.
They're listed to show what he has done. "I have had WCA records".

As for it being a current quote,
If Minh Thai, or any other past cuber made a site, would it not be okay to have a citation to a news report.
Like "Rubik's Cube World Record Broken - 22.95 Seconds" from the 80s or something.

They should be specic, e.g. Minh Thai would have "Former Rubik's Cube world record holder - 22.95 seconds" etc.

"WCA records", "World records" and so on can easily be misinterpreted as current records

That would be if you're creating a new article.
I'm talking about making a quote.

I suppose we could write "Former" in front of all of them so they won't confuse Josh's records.

Why don't you try and make a career out of cubing performances? He's not marketing to existing cubers, and the information isn't incorrect, it's a direct quote. The people who will be 'misled' really won't give a **** if they later realise it's not a current record. It's more important to communicate 'I am very fast, even CNN said so'.

Amazing work Anthony, you're a beast and this website is spot on. Best of luck!

A quote can still be misleading if it's cited years later when no longer factually accurate. Especially when no date is given. It will of course mislead people into thinking that record is current, including the people he's hoping will hire him.

Yo Josh,
Looks like the only way to keep us happy is to do this thing I just googled:

How to Cite a Newspaper Online in MLA
Last, First M. "Article Title." Newspaper Title Date Month Year Published: Page(s). Website Title. Web. Date Month Year Accessed.

edit:
Stewy I just realized what you did.
stop ruining the magic.

I've got a couple new blog posts up from this past weekend (Dallas Spring 2016 & Logic concert): http://www.brookscubing.com/blog/

Also, the first 310 Challenge livestream is going to be tomorrow (April 1), I've got a poll going on Cyoubx's friends to figure out start time: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cyoubxfriends/permalink/1356537061039410/?qa_ref=qd

Feel free to leave a comment here about start time (between 2-6pm PST) if you're not a part of the group. I'm mostly going to focus on ZBLL and alg learning, so you can also let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see, or just let me know during the stream tomorrow!

Hope to see you there. :)
