Hope this is in the right place. Are all penalties (like inspection +2 ) shown explicitly in competition result scores? I can't find this information anywhere, and wonder if I got any +2s during inspection (first competition). it just shows my times, so I assume not...and I can't find anybody with one in their record.

No, these have never been explicitly tracked. They are (supposed to be) on the physical scoresheets, but are never entered in the database.

Does anyone know if and where I can find WCA incident reports from before 2016?
This page only seems to show incidents from 2016 onwards.

I was intending to upload an avatar for my WCA profile today, but then I double checked the guidelines that appear next to it and saw this:

  • All avatars should be pictures of real persons.

So my sister drew this neat rainbow/collage series of our family for school and I thought it would be cool if that was my profile picture.
But does "real person" mean the direct photograph of someone or more like not a cat? Or is it open to interpretation and it just depends on the stance of the person of verifies it?

I believe that if you as a person are recognizable, it will be fine.

Try uploading it and see I guess.
