Fellow cubers, Please use this thread for suggestions for the 2006 version of the WCA regulations. We will create this version in december 2005 and are open for all ideas. The goal of the 2006 version is to improve the current regulations and some bigger changes if necessary. We may borrow parts of the regulations from the large sports organisations, like IAAF and FIFA. We appreciate your feedback! Thanks, Ron van Bruchem

I have just visited the rubiks.com web site and they are selling there own timer. It averages solves and keeps rolling averages ect. Do you think that this may be the new timer of the WCA?

Anyone up for a rolling average in competitions. Best 5 consecutive minus best and worst out of SEVEN straight solves! also, dnf's should not happen. if say I forgot to finish and I stopped the timer at 11 sec I should be allowed to restart the timer and add the times together plus say about 5 seconds for each accidental timer stopping. also no inspection inbetween the timings. Just a thought.

I think if you're trying to set a fast time, you're going to be at least concentrating on the puzzle, and you'll know when you'r finished. ~Thom
