Do you mean this thread to be a place to post when you get a world record, or do you want this thread to be a place where people can announce the world records they are trying to get and how they are going to practice? Or some other option?

I would support it only if world records happened so often that discussions about them were cluttering the forum. That doesn't seem to be the case right now.

Well, I don't know if it's really necessary. When world records get broken I (and I'm assuming other cubers) make it a point to know about it.
And there's already scattered discussion about it. I don't think there's really a need to centralize it. But you might want to talk to a Moderator if you want a sticky or something.

No, I believe that to be completely wrong.
The 3x3x3 Speed single has been a record for 238 days.
Magic Average WR has been there for 742 days.
3x3x3 WF record has been held for 204 days.
and there are more.

Number of world records by year (single/average/both):
Code:
1982   1   0   1
2003  14   4  18
2004  27  15  42
2005  33  21  54
2006  27  24  51
2007  35  34  69
2008  38  33  71
2009  10  10  20
Edit: These are only WCA official WRs.

And I think the thread is unnecessary for the original intention as I understand it.
