Hi. I recently joined this forum to learn more about speedcubing around the world and sharing some cool things with each other. My PB is 7.20 with a Gan 354 M.
I have one question. How can I get my name on the UWR list? I have 2 Rubik's Twist WR on my channel.
Single:
Average:
Big thanks to anyone who can help me with this

For getting your name on the UWR list on the wiki it's pretty simple. Just create an account and edit the page.
I'm not really active on the wiki so I don't know much, but I have done it before and it's not hard.

Also, welcome to the forum! You're pretty fast for a newcomer, how long have you been cubing?
Thanks I'll try. I've been cubing for more than 3 years
And what do you mean by creating an account? Speedsolving.com account?

No, you've got to create a wiki account--although I'm not sure on that atm. I know that in the past speedsolving/forum and speedsolving/wiki were separate things and you needed separate accounts to use either, but that might have changed in the recent site remodeling.

Ok. By the way is it illegal to edit the page? I mean you edit by yourself and don't have any permission

It’s like on Wikipedia anyone can edit it, but generally mods will catch it fast and stop it from being sent out.
*If it's a fake edit. Normal, real edits should be fine*

Also, I just watched the UWB videos--you can't start with a puzzle in your hand.
Keyboard timing is fine, but you can't be holding the puzzle too.
Also, it looked like the second solve of the average you didn't fully solve it--that you did an extra move at the end? I don't know if people would consider that a +2 or a DNF, but it looked like you just blew it off (and honestly, I do this too--just don't submit those attempts for UWR).
I've never seen Snake solving before and it's super impressive, but some people (including myself) might not consider these valid with these problems--mostly just starting it touching the puzzle.

Wow really ? Normally I just do what I think is the most comfortable for me. Holding the puzzle at the start makes me not messing up some of the first moves and staying consistent. Thanks for pointing out my problems.
As for the second solve in my average, It's true that I adjusted the piece after stopping the timer, but I think the piece moved just a tiny little bit to the right, so small that people still find it okay and wouldn't claim it a +2 ( like the near-45 degrees misaligned U face on NxN cube), or that what I thought

It’s unofficial after all.

Uhm.. Today I recorded another Rubik's Twist video. I hope this time it's legit

There are a number of people from the distant past who have claimed significantly faster single solves:

Still, your results seem at least as valid as what is currently on the wiki, so it seems reasonable for you to enter them there. I do suspect someone should probably insert Johannes Laire's name in the single, though. Here's a video of him significantly slower than his claimed value on the page above, but faster than yours in your video:

Well if you say so, Johannes got the UWR single then. But my average times still be counted as UWR right?
As for the page, I thought they did with the snake cube that folded into a 3x3 cube, rather than a ball
