Ok, I thought about a way to prevent cheating and make sure everyone solves the same scramble. What you can do is, while your recording the video you have the camera positioned over your right shoulder to where it can see the timer and the cube. So tha way you can see the timer and make sure tthey don't cheat with the timer. To make sure they have the right scramble is for them to do the scramble on video before the solve so wee know they are not cheating on the scramble. And for the people who don't have webcams you just record it with your camera and upload it to the contest.

You're missing the point here.  The cube is already popular - in fact
the highest selling toy of all time.  They don't need a competition to
advertise their cubes.  They already sell tons.



The forum isn't monitored because they just don't care.  They're
getting the sales they want.  A competition will just cost them money,
and won't raise much more then they are already pulling in.



A lot of comps are arranged by fans who love cubing.  Shops go along to
sell their wares.  Rubiks will happily sell cubes at these things, but
the organisation takes time and money, and they just can't be bothered
unless they've got something new to sell (360 / touch cube etc.)
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

They do care. The WC 2009 is proof of that. Rubik's paid for:
- The gigantic venue
- The advertising campaign (there were posters all over the city)
- Shuttle service between venue and hotel
- Gift pack for competitors
- Prizes (first prize was ?5000)
As a competitor, you didn't have to pay anything apart from the hotel and food.

Un monde de vérité


Yes a lot of sales but very little from 1982 (the first one championship on Hungary). There had better sales from the 2nd chanpionship that 21 years later in 2003 Canada. The championships of recent years have helped sales and survive is the cube. The puzzle was dead or nearly so. It was very difficult to find. The Guinness Book has decided to enter the world record with new system ...world cube association once again that in recent years.


My english is poor but I'm spirit cuber man too
