"It's disgusting"

And solving a cube with your hands isn't? Hands are just as dirty, if not more so, then feet are.
My math teacher does not wear shoes or socks in the classroom. He said that one of the high school science classes did an experiment a few years ago. They took bacteria from a staircase and its handrailing and the handrailing was dirtier. The railing had everything from the flu to ecoli! Proof that feet solving is not disgusting.

The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multi stage...
I have request for when the polls go live:

I know that when I click on a poll I feel obliged to vote. If there was an event that I was on the fence about for the weekly comp, I might pick “no” if there is not a “don’t care” button. This is a problem because one of the measurements that is being used to determine if an event will be added is that there needs to be more upvotes than downvotes. Because of this, here is my proposal:

An upvote button
A downvote button
A “don’t care” button that is not factored into the more upvotes than downvotes ranking.

Thanks for your consideration

Actually I intend to have the same threads that I created last year, with 4 choices:

Yes - I would like the event added, and if it is added I intend to compete in the event next year.
No - I would prefer that the event not be added.
I like the idea, but I do not expect to compete in the event next year (does not count as Yes!).
I don't really care.

The last two options both will have no impact on the final decision - only the specific Yes and No votes will count.

Here is my latest tally of nominations. Might have missed some votes, but I put all the names next to the events to make sure my work could be checked. I eliminated "Cuboids?" from the tally since this is not an event, and also removed "Team BLD" since we know it will not be added. Some other notes:

*Suggested Mirror Blocks no inspection, which I presumed to be the BLD variant.
**Voted for this event in two separate posts.

Kit, I was in the process of tallying when you posted yours. Mine is mostly in agreement, but you were doing a better job of verifying, so I'm going with your tally instead of mine. :)

I updated the first post with this tally. Thanks, Kit! And thanks, OneWheel, for starting the tally!

I noticed my vote for curvy copter was missed, possibly because I neglected to specify jumbling, but it’s through anyway, as I understand the rules.

Ah, one of my discrepancies with Kit's was that I had one extra vote for Curvy Copter (not counting the double one) - that must have been yours. I'll add it.

And yes, you're right it's already through. The only way it would not be through is if someone posts here to retract their own vote for it (which I will allow).

Thank you, I wasn’t really cubing when this was live, so thanks.

Token vote for Speed FMC and Curvy copter.

Master Kilominx and professor Pyraminx seem that they would be great too.

also, how about 3x3 speed fmcbld? the key isn't speed, just the most efficient blind solution to a solve.
