What have been the longest droughts of any new WCA world records?
I'm wondering whether the lockdown will, ironically, set some records for this.
During the period of June 06, 1982 - August 22, 2003, a gap of 7747 days (21 years, 2 months, 16 days) no WCA records were set.

There's also the statistics area of the WCA where 2x2 single currently has not had a new record in 1515 days, which is currently the longest standing gap, although I believe that Maskow's MBLD record stood unbroken for a longer time.

Outside of the first one, I don't know what the longest streak of not having any WCA records is (which is what I assume you're actually asking).

Actually, it's easy to see the gaps using the WCA's own statistics page, with mixed history for all records.

It turns out the second longest gap was after that competition on August 22, 2003, which I guess is to be expected:

(using the terminology GenTheThief used above)
During the period of August 24, 2003 - January 23, 2004, a gap of 153 days (5 months, 0 days) no WCA records were set.

So if we go until July without a competition, we should beat that.

As for Maskow's MBLD record, that stood for 1588 calendar days.

I wonder if the WCA will count it, or if they will disregard it because there was not an opportunity to have comps.
Considering it is not really a record, but just a statistic, and it has no real meaning, (and, for that matter, considering we're talking about the second longest anyway, since the longest is the record between 1982 and 2003), I don't really think there's anything for the WCA to "count" or "not count". It's just a statistic.

This is cool could you do this for averages and other events
Feliks got a 4 in 2009? lol I think there is something wrong with your program
If you had read the full message you would see it is the WCAid WR holder not the fastest time from that year, I think there is something wrong with your eyes.

not sure if that was the record but Maciej's 2x2 record is about to bypass that one having 1572 days as of when im posting this. Meaning that itll be passed on July 26th 2020.
If we arent counting Minh Thais record the longest standing record was Feliks Zemdegs 6.88 OH Single set in 2015 standing for 1617 days. It got surpassed in 2019 but on August 22nd 2020 Maciej's 2x2 record will surpass Feliks's record which would make Maciej's 0.49 2x2 record the longest record.

If you want, I can upload the program after polishing it a bit. Might take a few days though.
Well, this definitely was a few days. To be honest, I kinda forgot about it until some people liked the post.
I've made a small JavaFX program (which means you need Java to run it) which will download the WCA statistics from their page and then sort out everything. It's not particularly good looking and also shows the results in a weird format (it only shows the WCA IDs, not the actual names, and the times are shown without decimals, otherwise there'd be issues with FMC and MBLD), though the GUI should be fairly intuitive. Here's an image of what it currently looks like:
WCA ID records.PNG

In case you don't want to download some random jar file from some internet person you don't know (which I can very well understand since there's always a risk of malware), I've also published the source code (it's only one file), so you can have a look at it and compile it yourself. Here's the link to the github gist with the source code and the download link: https://gist.github.com/RedstoneTim/cbf82ce930d5d98120f33b9cef25989a

Slowest counting solve in a average of sub-10? So like 4.00, 4.00, 20.00 would have an average of 9.33
