we should have a section under location and WCA account for you to put you main cube or favorite cube, what do y'all think?
thats a good idea: 3x3 meathod and 3x3 main
And maybe (if it's not too much) what you average on 3x3 to see if you can practice with someone close to your times instead of hunting down and asking everyone.

There is already a section for 3x3 method, but I suppose there isn't one for 3x3 meathod.

For 3x3 main, you can just write that in the "about" section. And for accomplishments, you can put your PBs which would give people a good idea about what your average, and if you want it to me extra clear what you average, you can also put that in the "about" section.

I was looking at the accomplishment page and found a strange typo. I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, maybe "Please enter your results here" ?

if I am not mistaken, this is on you profile page right? I am talking about like to the left of this message my profile pic, usr name, and other info, that should have the info.

Yes, I am referring to the tab on your profile page, which you can get to by clicking on a user's name.

I strongly disagree that method/main 3x3/average should be in the username card. This isn't a fast paced enough medium to need that information so immediately accessible, and as it is, it is already very easy to find in the profile page.
If you really want that info to follow you around outside of your profile page, just put it in your signature. There's more freedom in what you can put there too (averages/mains for multiple events, quotes, links, etc.)

Also worth noting that for short posts, the "standard" information in the card (avatar, username, membership type, join date, message count, location, WCA, YT) already makes it much taller than the post content itself; there's no need to make it even taller.

The accomplishments tab on @Prostar's profile is broken:
to me it seems the mods are very aggressive with thread merging, I think too eager.
We will adjust this, thanks foe the feedback.

Times over a minute are displayed both in minutes and also in seconds, and all of his 3x3 times are ranked at 0. I haven't noticed this anywhere else, and on my profile results over a minute get displayed just in minutes.
Is this issue still happening? It is displaying correctly for me.

There is no option to attach files on profile pages.
For the character count it says Max character count reached. Limit:400
Where on profile pages do you want to upload an image?

Please get rid of the 3 character search limit. It makes searching for my username or terms like 2x2 or PBL impossible. Even worse, it completely excludes searching many Chinese names which are only 3 "characters".
You can use the Google CSE and search less than 3 characters and find what you need. If that doesn't work, let me know the query and I'll work on it.

I would also like the ability to delete polls. I made a poll for one video on my yt thread, but now its a few months out of date and it's just stuck at the top of the thread. Ideally, I would like the ability to create new polls as well, but at the very least I would like to be able to hide the poll.
Go ahead and report the roll and the mods will hide it.

also staff should update the featured threads on the front page with some new videos posted in the records subforum
We're trying to come up with something to handle this more effectively. Would you be interested in helping add threads to the featured section? Please PM me, thanks. We could use more help.

I've just added a 3x3 Main section, the 3x3 Method section has been there for awhile, you can update here:
Should we have these displayed under the Avatar?

Keep the feedback coming guys, it's useful and is super helpful in improving the community. Thanks.

oh that's true. but it won't even let me search something like "2x2 pbl". is there a technical reason why the search limitation is needed?

I could help but I only visit certain subforums. Though it looks like all the previous featured threads are just record videos, which if that trend is continued then I would just feature record videos (which is basically just me and @abunickabhi posting)

I just checked and it's still broken, at least when I look at it.

Thanks!

Definitely not. There's ample space in signatures, and there's already slots in the profile page.
