Bryan's Challenges Topic

Post by benjediman on Mon Jan 07, 2008 2:45 am

Hi and welcome!

I'm particularly fond of doing other stuff to the cubes besides merely solving it. Ergo, in this topic, I will be posting some "challenges" to give our cubing a little spice. Always check back for some updates, ayt?

Rules, Guidelines and whatnots:

1) Some comments are allowed, but please absolutely no spam. I'm not a moderator or admin, so I cannot delete posts, but if I was then I would not hesitate to delete unnecessary posts.
2) Some challenges require no inspection. Please be honest in observing this rule.
3) You may post your results anytime before I post another challenge as to keep this page organized.
4) I can also post my results. Don't worry, I wont cheat, and I will find programs to generate the special scrambles, meaning I won't come up with them on my own.
4) Post your result of a challenge only once. A challenge may have many scrambles, so please write each scramble then result, e.g. scramble 1 R U R U result: 1 sec, scramble 2 L U L U result: 3 sec. You can format it in your own way as long as each result follows its corresponding scramble.
5) I will give a specific time frame for a challenge. Once I close the challenge, please refrain from posting your result. I will then declare the winner for that challenge, then make another challenge.
6) Some challenges depend on colors, so scramble your solved cube with WHITE on top and GREEN in front.

7) THERE ARE NO PRIZES. I am not rich. But I will gladly sing you a song and dance for you naked Razz too bad you don't know where I live and no I won't videotape it clown

Cool Although I started this thread or even type of topic, anybody has the right to make their own challenges, but in another topic. I claim this topic bwahaha Razz It has my name on it. If there are many "Challenges" topics, maybe the moderators and admins will make a whole new category for it Razz


I'll start a challenge next time, I'm too sleepy right now Smile Good Luck!

EDIT: And oh, post your results preferrably in xx:xx.xx format for minutes solves, and xx.xx for solves under one minute. If you're using a timer with less figures after the decimal point, I will automatically add 1 value to the smallest digit it has. For example, if you submitted 49.3 seconds, It will become 49.40 seconds, and if you submitted 49 seconds, it will become 50 seconds. This is to play safe against times that should have been something like 9.50 seconds but the timer would still show 9 seconds since it cannot display fractional values.

EDIT: I kinda feel unfair. ok, i wont post my results til the deadline, and i wont count in my times in the tally Smile
