Last year I promised I would again consider the possibility of adding new events for the Weekly Competition this year. Again, I don't want to frivolously add new events, but I do want to give the community the chance to possibly add events if there truly is demand for it. Because my time is limited, I will not be willing to consider this year adding any events that would require significant changes to the website, so unfortunately things like team events (which would involve complications in statistics handling) will not be considered this year. But simple additions of puzzles, or other things that don't require more than adding a new event and scrambles, are things I could certainly handle.
As I did last year, I will use the average weekly participation in our competition this year as a numeric "justification" for going forward. This year the average participation per week has been approximately 223.
Since I am getting a later start this year than last, the schedule will be accelerated, which might mean it's a little harder for an event to get added. Probably, that's not such a bad thing.
On this thread, I will take suggestions for events. Any event that gets at least 11 recommendations (5% of the weekly average of participants) over the next two weeks (ending 2019/12/08) will get its own poll thread. Note that to count as a recommendation, you must actually post on this thread with a statement that you would like to see the event added. Likes will not count as recommendations - you must actually post the recommendation yourself in order for it to count as one of the 11 needed recommendations.
The poll threads will then be open for about 2 weeks, until December 24. The poll will be worded such that an upvote implies that the voter BOTH wants the event added AND intends to compete in it if possible, while a downvote implies that the voter specifically does not want the event added. At that point, any event that receives at least 23 upvotes (hence over 10% of the weekly average of participants) AND ALSO has more upvotes than downvotes will be eligible to be added to the competition. However, I will add no more than 2 events this year, so if more than 2 events reach this threshold, only the top 2 will be added. I will close the poll threads after the deadline is reached.
Last year, this method seemed to work okay, and while the two new events (master pyraminx and redi cube) were not overly popular, they did have sufficient participation to make for some interesting results, and overall I am glad I added both events. I admit I personally really enjoy master pyraminx - it's now one of my favorite puzzles to solve.
Just to start us off, I personally would like to see the following event added, so I will count this as one recommendation for it:
Curvy Copter (jumbled)
In your response, please make clear the events that you wish to see added.
