In the cubing community.

I look up to Stefan Pochmann and Tony Fisher.

I don't know why. I just do.

I'm 6'2, so I don't really look up to anyone. :wink:

Seriously though, I look up to Mr. Twisty for successfully completing so many studio ordered, and handling them so elegantly. Hard task. Also cuz he has such a huge collection!

Hmm, for me: probably Tyson Mao/Ron van Bruchem for starting the WCA, Macky in solving, and Tony and Katsuhiko in building. Thats about it

Well, I have absolutely real respect for those:

1. who invent completely new type of puzzles (e.g. astrolabacus),
2. who insert ingenius engineering in puzzles (e.g. Olympic cube 6x6x6 and up)
3. who create top quality puzzles (e.g. Tony Fisher).


Of course, one may be able to do all three of them! ;)

Fridrich/Petrus/Roux for creating the main methods of speedcubing, without them who would have thought sub 20 was possible?

I agree, but I also look up to/admire everyone here who have gotten good times when speeding, everyone with a determination to try moding and succeding and *realizing* just about everyone on this forum.

Then again, this does not mean that I admire everyone "to the same extent", because I regard the once mentioned by Pantazis as more admirable...

But I think that as Pembo said everyone (I guess you ment that) who have contributed with a system of solving any kind of puzzle I highly "looked up on".
Since I think that is the real challange, I take this as the top category...

*hope this made sense*

What about Wayne and Sandy? Without them, this place wouldn't exist.

I wonder how many great puzzle modifications are a direct result of the influence and information on this wonderful forum.

well if it's who started me into getting puzzles? I'd have to say Meffert's.... I saw the 5x5x5 there and had to pick it up.

on that note, I saw this site, with the Meffert's ad banner everywhere. So that helped me consider buying from Meffert's. So in all these two sites helped me start my collection.

And this site help me get introduced to pretty much everyone else in the puzzle modding comunity.

That's what started my chain reaction to collect hehe


(gotta give a shout to Mr. Puzzle aka Brain Young as well.... he started me with my wooden burr puzzle collection.)


but who i look forward to, is all of Tony's puzzles. Interested to see what he'll come up with next.

Adam Z for coming up with a unique twist on twisty's.

All the nooby puzzle makers - I envy you the most for making that leap I have yet to make.

(sorry to exclude any speedcubers other may have mentioned, but I just don't speedcube so it doesn't make that big of an impact on me, although it is quite impressive what they can do)

Jerry Slocum - I guess everyone should thank him for his overall impact to the 'puzzle world'.

Bill Cutler for breaking down the burr possibilities.

The different types of groups of people who I look up to in the cubing/Twisty community are below. The reason why I put groups instead of people is so that I don't forget anybodys name and mak'em mad at me unless it is a very small number.

People that makes websites to form community/club/family(W&S).

People who form bulk orders without any profit.

People who make different puzzles thats out of the ordinary(thats including small to huge).

People who find algorithms by them selfs and helps out others also.

People who have very large collections.

People who Manufactured make and sell puzzles to the world.

People who I traded with and will trade again because there friendly.

I think that is all that I can think of the groups of people that I look up to.
