Kinda surprising there are barely any entries. Dude it's 500 dollars worth of gift cards. I was quick to click on this because I am broke and want a decent speedcube and lube.

To spice things up and to support those watching this thread I have a little cubing riddle with prizes. It's very easy and the solution is a 25$ cubicle gift card. Whoever claims it first gets it first.
Here is the riddle https://kklzhost.com/cubes/CubicleGiftGiveaway_1/
Please post here if you managed to claim the prize!
If you like it I will post more!
I figured out the puzzle and used the gift card. The answer was 7EGE DEH2 3649 944E (What's on the screen, then filling in letters for the moves/PLLs he did). Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I now have a free WRM on the way!

Yeah, I am going to enter, but since you are allowed to practice the scrambles before posting the times, I thought I would practice a bit before I post the times.

Uhh okay, so if I post one now, practice the same scrambles, and repost again next week, I still get the "Point" for a early post? Sorry if I missed that if that is correct.
Yes, that's correct.

Also I got this question privately
Hey, for this competition am I allowed to use a program to find the optimal solution (...) or find some FMC solution for this contest?
Yes, all tricks to get lower time are allowed. In the extreme: TPS spamming reverse scramble is also allowed.
