Hi all,

I have created a Sporcle quiz on the WCA world record holders. The URL is here:
http://www.sporcle.com/games/ThomasJE/rubiks-cube-world-record-holders
I have also embedded it on my website:
http://thomasje.webs.com/world-record-holder-quiz
The rules are pretty self explanatory; you name a cuber, and if they are a world record holder, the answer will show up. For people with multiple world records (e.g. Zemdegs), you only need to type their name once for all their records to appear.

Also, I know that kinch2002 created a quiz like this, but it hasn't been updated for some time now.

Enjoy!

You forgot to make it accept:
Pleskowicz without the Michal
.
It also doesn't accept:
Bingliang li unless you just put li
.

Nice quiz though.

Fixed. I forgot to put the 'i' i Bingliang and forgot to add the 'Pleskowicz' option.

18/29. Forgot 7x7. Who likes feet and clock idk. Forgot how to spell Michal's last name. Can't spell Maskow.
I got 26. Forgot feet single, megaminx average and couldn't spell Michal's last name.

This can be tricky with funky spelled names
Indeed...

and you got Michał Pleskowicz wrong, it's Michał instead of Michal (in case you can't spot the difference, take a look at the ł)
Fixed.

Also, if you want some stats on the answers people gave, look here:

please make it accept letters without accents... I spent 3 minutes trying to figure out how to make it accept Balint Bodor (I have no idea which letters requires accents and what accents)...

also, 18 correct xD can spell peoples names :/

Done.

You should accept first names.

I remembered a few first names, but didn't know how to spell the last names.
Will do.
