Hi, Melinda,

Good idea to start the HOF list.   It’s worth noting that there are a
variety of rule sets, and associated details, being used in the first
four solutions on the list (I’m not familiar with the 5th, Joseph’s).

Because our rule sets are still in flux, and because I think they should
STAY in flux for quite a while … I suggest adding a "notes" field to
the HOF list, to describe what kind of solution it was.

Here are the notes I’d personally attach to the first four solutions on
the HOF list.

Bob’s:  strict rules, well described, no video
Zander’s:  parity violating 4-cycles used, full video
Luna’s:  strict rules, full video
Chris’s:  poor scramble, semi-strict rules, 4-cycle shortcuts used with
parity correction, has video
