Yes, I saw this suggestion the first time. It's a good one; I'll try to get to it someday. I apologize; I haven't had as much time lately for further improvements, and most of my recent improvements have been behind the scenes to help with administration of the competition, but I do hope to get back to them again in a month or so.It would be cool if events that are not part of the weekly comp anymore are displayed in a seperate field on the PB-sheet^^
Never really thought about it but, yes please I need those changes!Feature request #1: make the session timeout (much) longer. Maybe two hours or more?
I think it's currently half an hour or so, which means that I have to log in again after each FMC attempt. It's not a big deal, but it is a little bit annoying to have to do this all the time.
Feature request #2: after submitting a solution on the manual entry page, it shouldn't redirect to the "main" page, but stay on the manual entry page. (Subjective; I don't know would prefer this over the current behaviour.)
Same thing; I use manual entry for FMC and I have to go to the manual entry page for each attempt, unless I enter all three attempts at once.

Sorry, this is a known bug; I'm short on extra time right now to work on fixes like this. I haven't worried too much about it because I consider it a somewhat low-priority bug - the ordering corrects itself after the week is over - the ordering bug only appears when calculating the current week.Looks like a bug in MBLD ordering - quicker 1/2 DNFs are being ranked higher than a slower 0 points success, e.g. from this week:
The difference is due to the fact that I currently use the unrounded averages for this calculation. Your average is actually 4.6533..., while Malte's is actually 4.6466... That makes the difference.I just noticed that even tho me and Malte have the same AVG in skewb, we seem to have a different kinch value for that event, which seems a bit odd
I just went to wca.cuber.pro and looked at Blake's vs Danny's 3x3 averages (6.753 and 6.747 respectively) and both have an 84.30 kinch for 3x3. I don't think it really matters too much though, as the difference is very marginal, so I don't think people will care too much either way.I guess I'm curious what the pseudo-official Kinch ranks do (wcadb, I guess?).
This seems like a better argument for including at least one more decimal place in the averages than the singles, actually. (Why should singles and averages be written to the same precision anyway?)Here's why unrounded averages are bad (and why the WCA doesn't use them):
Taking the average of numbers that only go to the hundreths shouldn't give you thousanths. If you had the thousanths in there originally, and averaged them out, then that might give a different result.
Singles and averages should be written to the same precision because of sig figs, which I thought I explained why but clearly I was wrong.This seems like a better argument for including at least one more decimal place in the averages than the singles, actually. (Why should singles and averages be written to the same precision anyway?)
If I could have my way with things, I'd change the WCA regulations to start recording milliseconds and use four decimal places for averages, I guess. And Kinch ranks aren't ever calculated by hand in the first place; there's no need to "simplify" the calculation process by rounding some of the intermediate values to three or however many decimal places.
This is something I will add to the list to do for the website at some point, although there are a number of other things that are higher priority.People can see the top 3x3 times in a comp, a year, and even all time. It would be cool if people could see the top overall scores in a certain year or of all time.
