[quote:35mdhbkx]Why have different procedure/requirements for starting and stopping the solve?[/quote:35mdhbkx]
That has been discussed before. The starting goes slow, the stopping goes very fast.
The reason it is this way is because it is very hard to judge the stopping of the timer.
In the past there were a lot of cases where some people would say OK, some would give a warning and some would give a penalty.
I think it is very clear now.
[quote:35mdhbkx]isn't this new way allowing for people to stop with end of the palms[/quote:35mdhbkx]
[quote:35mdhbkx]and having hands not flat and/or palms not down? or even touching the puzzle as they stop?[/quote:35mdhbkx]
Rules say: hands flat, palms down, not touching the puzzles.
