If you have a suggestion for a new solution for the Solutions section, post it here.

If you have written a solution that you would like to contribute to TwistyPuzzles.com, e-mail it to the Solution Moderators: solutions@twistypuzzles.com.

Working on the Pyraminx Crystal solution. Been out of town quite a bit lately, so it hasn't come along quite as quickly as I had hoped.

How is formatting done on these solutions?

The reason I ask is because I used to have a page with solutions to many puzzles, but it closed along with geocities. I might be willing to "donate" the pages to TP.com, but I am not sure how suitable they would be.

If they would need a significant amount of correction, I probably won't have time to do it, but if they can be used more-or-less "as is", I'd liek to do that because I don't know if I'll ever get my website back up.

I have "nice looking" pages for Helicopter cube, Cubical Rua, SuperX, SuperO/Skew-by-2, Vestar, Little chop, and a few more, and "bare bones" sort of pages for many more like Master Skewb, Master Pyraminx, Cubical Toru, MasterX, MasterO, etc.

Exciting! Rather than explain all the formatting as the first step, would it be possible for you to e-mail me one as an example of what we're working with? I might be able to do a search/replace mass re-format.

On a related note, the solutions/articles format may still change as I don't really like how the pictures sometimes show up in some of the articles.

I'd be willing to help reformat/layout solutions that were already written up there was a template to follow.

Ok, I sent an email to that address you gave in the first post.

I'm working on a PC solution as well. Just getting a better feel for the puzzle, and then I'll work something up and email it to sandy.

Hi everyone, haven't posted here in months now. University has been occupying my time lately.

When I reached step 4a of Roux the first time I learned it, I thought it was going to be a lot more challenging that it ended up being - there aren't that many different combinations of pieces.

Around ... maybe a year and a half ago, I made a simple diagram when learning Roux and posted it here. No one responded but I figure it may be of some use to people as I have seen people having trouble with it both on YouTube tutorials as well as other forums.

It's really just a partial solution so I don't know if it belongs here or if I should contact via e-mail as you posted. If you think it's worth putting up go right ahead!

Thanks!

EDIT: Picture stretched page too much so I took of the tags.

Hi Sandy,

I was wondering if my solution is worthy to be placed in the solutions tabs.

I made up a simple site regarding how to attempt a 5x5 Picture rubik's cube (aka professor's cube with picture on the faces??) with only 3 algorithms. But I didn't include any algorithms at all... but only arrows of actual movements in right order.

I am try to teach in a way that you do not even have to memorize the algorithms.. since I did in my iphone.. I am drawing out arrows.. iphone friendly.


It is not the fastest.. but really simple & stupid... yet it works.
