Great feedback! Thanks.
3f) changed to 1.5 mm (which is the thickness of Mefferts tiles).
3l) the reason why we want to limit the logos is because you could use that to mark f.i. all F2L pieces. It must be on the center because that is the normal position of the logo. We are aware of the fact that old 4x4x4s have more than one logo, and sometimes on a corner piece. It should not be a big problem to change your puzzle to obey the regulations.
4b) this is not a problem for scrambling, because we use multi-slice scrambling. For the solved position any misaligned slice results in the penalty, which could be one or more.
4e) I think we better keep it this way. For big competitions we already have 4g. In the future we may see completely random scrambles per competitor. Not for now.
5b5) updated, change 'non functional part' to 'non functional parts'
7b) yes, this also goes if there is a podium. I often see the chairs placed a good distance from the competitors. But unless we want to compete in a cage, there is no way to prevent people from coming closer. Judges and competitors can of course ask people to step back a little.
I prefer not to say anything about the distance between the competitors. We often have one table with two mats. Sometimes this becomes a narrow place to compete. But I would not want to cancel a competition or have fewer events because the tables are too close.
Maybe for a future version?
8a7) is indeed the way it is written now, so 10 persons per competition, not per event. There was one competition where we had 9 people in 3x3x3, but additional person in Magic. That made in 10 people.
I think it is OK now, but I hope we can grow so that this will never be an issue anymore.
8a9) future version? The problem with audience is that you cannot force people to come and watch us.
9b) yes, best-of format is allowed, f.i. for blindfolded.
We have 8a11 to prevent abuse.
Rubik's 3x3x3 Cube is an event, so if you would have two events (even with different formats), then it is still the same event.
What do other people think of signing after each solve?
As I already said, I hardly see people watching the judge write down their times.
Personally I am not in favor of changing this, because it will take more time per competitor and thus more time overall for a competition.
I try to do that but somehow I always forget it.
What we could do in general is to make guidelines (so not regulations) of a decent preparation for a competition.
We should not make this a regulation, because what would happen if my printer isn't working?
What do you think?
I agree. Could you please write a short description of the notation?
Signing that you understand the regulations)
We could add that to the registration forms. Personally I do not mind at all. I do not think Zidane had to sign upfront that he understood the soccer regulations, and even if he did: he did not follow the regulations in the final. So why bother?
I am happy that in cubing people in general follow the regulations quite well.
Adding article numbers to A to F)
I promise to do that for next version.
The problem is that the current articles A to F are written in procedure style. Adding letters would make it harder to read.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback!
My todo list has grown...
