Looks like the "Age vs Speed" page is gone from the WCA site, anyone know why, cause I'd really wanted a more detailed version of it.

Maybe biggest and smallest single to average ratio in every event (I want to see 2x2 atleast)
I second that, in 2x2 I have avg/single = 1.137 for example.

I'd like to see a list of those with slow PB averages that also have a sub 10 single.
Interesting idea! Here is the Top 100:

These are all the people with a 10.xx average but no sub-9 single. All the 9.xx average people have a sub-9 single (I checked), so this list is in fact all the "fastest" people. Two people are in parentheses since their results are on cubecomps but have not been made official yet.

Hope you have fun reading! I did most of this 10 days ago, so that's when the database export is from.

4665 out of 7872 attempts (not counting DNS) have been successful. This is 59.3%. The rest are DNFs of course.

The mean solve is 42.43
The median solve is 41

Average result for 1st place: 32.63
Average result for 2nd place: 36.41
Average result for 3rd place: 38.91

I kind of prefer this ranking because it takes account of DNFs too (i.e. you can't just submit really good results to lower your mean)

This could be a little bit tricky:
Official FMC results; if you have done <10n attempts you're ranked according to your nth best solve. I.e. 1-9 attempts: best solve, 10-19 second best solve, 20-29 third best solve...

Some people don't like them so they changed the regulations so that birth dates are now considered confidential information and then now they deleted all age statistics because of it (the top 10 youngest/oldest solvers we had here as well).

Why they don't like them Stefan? do you have any idea?

I don't understand why people so shy to tell the truth about her or his age?

Sorry if I'm wrong :)

Could you just have the diagrams as before, but without any names? That shoudn't bother anyone imo.

Nah, wasn't the people in those statistics. I never heard of anyone complaining because of themselves. I only heard people being proud of being on those lists or wishing they were on them (me as well, I once got very close to having the best 3x3 average for my age). And of course for years the regulations explicitly excluded birth date from being confidential, so all competitors kinda explicitly agreed to them being used publicly, but apparently that doesn't matter.

One could still reverse engineer at least the approximate ages of the world record holders, so... no. Otherwise I would've expected the guys to already just remove the list of names on that page rather than the entire page. No, all birth date related stuff is categorically off the table now. I think I'm not even allowed to tell you the average age of all competitors.

Means: You still have the time to get The Best 3x3 average for your age. Keep on practice Stefan :)

On the age vs speed thing, this is pretty much the only reason I speed cube. I can see privacy concerns being important.

I suppose we can use "age groups" as is done in other sports. For example, here are the current outdoor track records for men and women, by age group and distance:

http://www.world-masters-athletics.org/records/outdoor-women

For example, Ronald Taylor has the outdoor record for the 100m in men 60 and older.

By the way, if you're curious about what we're talking about here (but can't see it because the page has been deleted), you can use the "way back" tool to show the WCA record for "age vs speed" as it appeared in May 2013:

My dad is going to be heartbroken. His goal has been to be one of the top 10 oldest BLD solvers.

EDIT: He's not heartbroken.

I will miss those stats. ("Silly lists", as Mats Bergsten called them.) I was really working hard to try to get on the age vs. speed 3x3x3 list, even if it did seem almost hopeless to ever surpass Ton - I was at least going to try!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh , that was my only award , this list was my motivator , silly to remove I am willing to take up the task to generate this list if it is the amount of work to make the list. These stats is my only list where I am relative nr 1 of the world.

btw it is silly to have age as a confidential issue , what is confidential ? Main cubers are already on a wiki page with age , age is a give away at competitions . No one believe me when I say I am 18
