Possibly something a bit like this? Just create a text file containing a list of algorithms in the same folder as the python file and it should work fine.
@Waffles

Python:
alg_list = open("algs.txt", 'r').read().splitlines()

filter_requirement = input("Exclude algs containing: ")
check_for_suffix = False

if len(filter_requirement) > 1:
    check_for_suffix = True

output = []
for i in alg_list:
    if filter_requirement in i:
        if check_for_suffix:
            if i[i.index(filter_requirement) + 1] == filter_requirement[1]:
                print("Discarded item: " + i)
            else:
                output.append(i)
        elif not check_for_suffix:
            if i[i.index(filter_requirement) + 1] == " ":
                print("Discarded item: " + i)
            else:
                output.append(i)
    else:
        output.append(i)

print("OUTPUT:")
for i in output:
    print(i)
nice code.

it would be interesting if the output was the not filtered out algs, not the excluded

I thought it might be cool if we had a scramble generator similar to how FSG works in minecraft speedruns, generating a lucky scramble (i.e. a combination of some blocks built, less bad edges, good CP cases, etc.)
Might be useful for training on lucky scrambles so you can take advantage of them (for CFOP you could build XX(X)-crosses more reliably) and see how far speedcubing can be pushed.

There should be a Pre-owned (specifically) cube shop, SCS sells them but it's not a pre-owned shop. A real only pre-owned cube store would be fantastic

Where would you get bulk pre-owned cubes?

Anyway, I think there should be a competition alert system for when a comp is announced in your area. I check the WCA website like 3 times a days bc there isn't anything like that.

Maybe see if the speedcubing organisation in your area has a mailing list. Speedcubing Australia has one here and they will alert you about any new competitions in your state.
