I decided to sell my cylinder --

Oh, and can anyone tell me why it automatically decides to show shipping costs to Australia? Not that it's a big deal, but I never specifically chose that to be the default.

Why is there a picture of a five layer cylinder there?

Oh, that's just a pattern made from the same puzzle. Do you suppose it is a bit misleading? I didn't realize until just now.

It could be, but just adding a text somewhat like this should solve that matter:

"The picture that shows five layers is just a pattern accived by applying the scrambling algorithm XXXX to the cylinder with the added layer on top..."

Could be a bit missleading in it self to a novis, but to us who understand notation, it should clerify a lot, I think.

Hope you got the alg :P

Did you delete the picture? If it shows the puzzle you sell there's no reason to delete it. I assume some holes were visible, right? Like after M2 S2 with the extension on top. Plus it's positive if a picture shows pretty things you can do with the puzzle.

Btw, very nice color scheme for that, when scrambled it looks more scrambled than let's say a regular extended 3x3x5 because the pieces stuck together don't have always adjacent stickers of the same color.

I guess the alg was something like B2 D2 with extended layer on top, so if you didn't look closely (wich I didn't) you couldn't see it was a "pretty pattern", but as you say, it doesn't have to be deleted, just explained to clarify...

I took it down and I took a few more pictures from a different angle, to show more of the cube. The alg is very simple, just R2 U2 with the extended layer being D.
