How's the winter weather mid-July in Melbourne? Will this be the first winter Worlds?
It varies a lot I’m pretty sure, like in one day it could feel like all four seasons at different times of the day. it’s cold but definitely not freezing. That’s just based off of when I went down there In winter, but up in Queensland it’s like bright and sunny 95% of the time.
Also, are Australian schools on break this week? Or do the closest people need to skip school? Ik Feliks skipped school for 2013 and maybe other years.
If you mean the week worlds runs into, then it’s holidays for us. But pretty sure the week after, school starts back for most.

The WCA should add a "continental rotation" system, like a 6-years cycle with 2 worlds being either Europe, North America or Asia, and the remaining one being either South America, Africa and Oceania. That may seem strange, but advantaging north-hemisphere-continents is justified by the fact that there are more people, more cubers, more infrastructure and accessibility. A place ticket from North America or Europe to Australia is very, very costly and the times zones lag can hurt performances. Also, it's not as harsh as what the WSSA does!
What do you think of that continental rotation system?

You can't force people to organize worlds.

Well it adds diversity
Huh? We already have diversity in worlds. It's been held on 4 continents, and is going to a 5th soon. What you are proposing is too rigid, and for a young organisation like the WCA, flexibility is a must. And also, that would mean that the next worlds in Australia would be in about 2037 lol.

Not only that, but by 2019, Worlds will have been in a different continent for the last 5 times it has been held. Diversity is not the issue at all here.

Pretty happy worlds is in Australia. Gives me a chance to discover a new country which i've never been too. Also does anyone know when qualification times + Cut Offs for events will be public? Would like to know which events i need to practice more.
