Post 8x8 timed top 10
Today is the first day I've noticed that the top 10 times are all under 3 minutes.

And it was in fact the first day this happened (!) [omg]

A plot of the top 10 time for each day since the start of the 8x8 timed:

It's definitely becoming a lot tougher to get into the top ten. Yesterday, there were 16 times under 3:50! [scared]

Not only the top 10 of the 8 x 8 has become way faster, I personally think that the times of the 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6 have even more improved during the last couple of years.
For example, two years ago one mostly made it into the top ten of the 4x4 with a time of 9,000, now one often needs about 6,500. Besides, I expect the 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6 times to be more constant, as more people compete there with more trials each. Do you also have graphs for these puzzle sizes, Patrick?

OMG: top 10 under 3:30 and the best I could do was 5 minutes beyond that.....laughable to think I will ever be able to get in top ten ever again [cursing]

What's even more scary is that there were 27 times under 5:30. [scared]
