Four polls are being posted; note that only a maximum of two events will be added to the weekly competition.

This thread will be open for 15 days.

Vote yes ONLY if you BOTH want the event added AND intend to compete in it if possible.

Vote no if you specifically don't want the event added.

If the event receives at least 22 Yes votes (10% of the weekly average of participants) AND ALSO has more Yes votes than No votes, and is one of the top two events chosen, it will be added to the competition.

Responses other than Yes or No will not have any impact on the decision. Your response can be changed up until the poll closes.

Meh
Which 15 puzzles are available and where are they available from? Are they basically klotskis?
This one is from Qiyi

I will be counting down the days for these polls, both to remind people of the deadline and to make sure none of the threads disappears too far from view because of less discussion on one of them.

Fourteen more days for these polls.

I want to make sure everyone understands, because my original post here was originally improperly worded in one place - no more than 2 events will be added this year. Since it seems likely that more than two events will have enough votes to meet the minimum requirements, this becomes a race for the most votes - only the top 2 according to yes votes will be added. Fewer no votes will be used to break ties.

While I like sims, and even competing with sims, the intention for our weekly competition here is that it be using physical puzzles. Sims really shouldn't be used.

Especially for something like 15 puzzle, where I would imagine the UWR for a sim would likely be significantly faster than for a physical puzzle.

It's more like clock in the way that it's not a twisty puzzle, and it's not made by Rubik's, which is the only reason clock is an event, so I would say no. But enough people want to compete in it then I see no real harm in having ti be added.

12 days left! At the moment all 4 proposed new events have enough votes to be considered candidates for adding, so unless people change votes from Yes to No, it is now down to a race for the most votes.
