3.[noob question]Just out of curiosity could you use a touch cube at a comp[/noob question].
HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAA LMFAO AHAHAHAHAHAH OMG AHAHAHAH YOU'VE GOT TO BE JOKING
I think so too. In HTML/BBC code you'd usually have to add a value to an attribute. You also don't add attributes to the closing tag. So instead of
Code:
[noob question]Just out of curiosity could you use a touch cube at a comp[/noob question]
you'd do something like this.
Code:
[noob question="notwellthoughtout"]Just out of curiosity could you use a touch cube at a comp[/noob]
Or maybe
Code:
[question type="noob"]Just out of curiosity could you use a touch cube at a comp[/question]
would display better for those using Internet Explorer.

Ok, Checked the regulations:

Basically no because:

3l) Cube puzzles must have at most one logo. For Rubik's Cube or bigger cube puzzles the logo must be placed on one of the centre pieces.

3b) Puzzles must be in reasonable working order, so that normal scrambling is possible.

3e) Twisty puzzles must either have coloured stickers or coloured tiles

3h) No modifications are allowed that enhance the basic concept of a puzzle. Some examples of enhancing the basic concept are: new moves are possible, normal moves are impossible, more pieces are visible, colours on the backside of the puzzle are visible, moves are done automatically, more or other solved states.

3k) Puzzles must be approved by a judge before the competitor competes.
So yeah. That's why. Also, Please don't curse or get angry. Immature behavior is not worth replying to.

Why would you think that something with a 'solve' button would be allowed in competition...

I won a touch cube yesturday and i have some questions about it.

1.How long does it take to charge?
I think it says it's supposed to take 8 hours, but I've never seen it take more than about 3, when fully out of charge. I've sometimes wondered if that means our TouchCube has a somewhat bad battery, but I guess it's working okay for us - it lasts somewhere between one and two hours when fully charged.

2.On the stand what does the colour of the pyraminx thing mean?
If you mean what I think you mean, red means it hasn't decided it's charged yet, green means it believes it's charged. If you take it out when it's green and then put it right back in, it generally is red again - that's because it doesn't know it's just been charged. Battery charging is still an inexact science, so if you want your TouchCube to last, you need to follow the directions. They say in the instructions that come with the cube that once it's charged, you shouldn't recharge it until it's almost out of charge again. So you should put it back in the stand after that turned the wrong direction so it won't charge until you use it up, then put it back in for a full recharge. It's kind of a pain, but it's the way these kinds of rechargeable batteries work, unfortunately.

3.[noob question]Just out of curiosity could you use a touch cube at a comp[/noob question].
What everyone else says is true, this is truly a LOL question, since a TouchCube makes a terrible speedcube. But I think a strict interpretation of the rules would mean you can't use one. And you would probably be frowned upon by the organizer for doing so. I highly recommend you not even consider trying it.
