I've been cubing for like 4 years, but I've never really interacted with the cubing community. Recently, however, I decided to go to WCA comps and I've been having a blast!

I'm mediocre at most events, and I don't really consider any events my main event. The events I'm the best at are feet (but not in a few days) and skewb and the events I like the most are 5x5, 3x3, 3BLD, and multiBLD.

I live in the U.S. and I don't really do much other than school and cubing because I'm boring.

Also, unimportant question: what exactly are the +2 limits on square-1?
Take a solved square-1 and do each of the following and tell me if it's no penalty, +2, or DNF.
• 49% of a /
• (1, 0) /
• (1, -1) /
• (1, 0) / (-1, 0)
• (1, 0) / (-1, -1)
• (1, 0) / (-1, 0) and 49% of a /
• (1, 0) / (-1, -1) and 49% of a /

Welcome I can’t help you out with the Square One question, but I’m sure there’s people who can.

Without looking at the WCA regs, here's what I think:
1. No penalty
2. +2
3. +2
4. DNF
5. DNF
6. DNF
7. DNF

Here's what the regs say:

Hello!!
It's always cool to see new cubers.
I ordered a Square-1 so after I get it, I'll tell you the Square-1 answers.

Even when you get a square-1, the question is still pretty hard and complicated and confusing, but GL solving it when you get it, it's a real challenge to solve.

After thinking about it for a bit, your answer makes sense. 30 degrees before the slice and 30 degrees back after shouldn't be a 0 degree misalignment, it would probably be 60.
