        I'd love to, but I don't really have to think about that for another year and a half or so. :p

      Have you ever thought of making a gaming channel? Since you like Mario and stuff so much :p
      1. DGCubes
        DGCubes
        I've considered it, but I honestly don't have the time to run two channels at once; I barely have the time for one, lol. Besides, the gaming scene on YouTube is pretty oversaturated at this point, so I don't think I would really add anything new. I might do a couple gaming streams on my second channel if I have time in the future though. :)

      Hey DG! Would you ever consider learning a method like Roux or ZZ for fun? I am currently switching to Roux and this question popped into my mind when I was on your page :D
      1. DGCubes
        DGCubes
        Hey! I actually used ZZ for OH for a few months, but I switched back to CFOP recently because I was faster with it. I know how to do Roux, but I don't know any CMLL or LSE algs, so I just do it intuitively or use similar algs I do know.

        Oh, that's pretty cool, I'm currently switching from CFOP to Roux for many reasons, I expect it to be a pretty bumpy ride but I think it will be worth it in the long run :)

      Hey dg, I just recently got back into cubing, and I am really into 2x2 right now. I'm learning ORTEGA, but I'm struggling with some PBL cases. Could you point me towards a good tutorial?

        2x2 is not bad, Daniel was just indoctrinated by the establishment elites to prefer pyraminx.

        That's a fair point, but *checks WCA* you're 11th in the world for pyraminx.

      Hey DG, would you ever consider learning a large alg set like ollcp or zbll? I am trying to learn zbll this year.

      Hey DG!I just finished a python coding camp and wanted to make a cube related python program.I saw your video on the auto cube reviewer and that gave me some inspiration to make a cube program. Can you give some me some ideas???Thanks!!!

      Hey sorry to bother you again, I have a really dumb question because I'm new. are you heading to the World Championship in Paris, or do you have to be apart of the cubicle team?

        Anyone can compete as long as they meet the qualifying times and register in time, regardless of who they're affiliated with (or if they're not affiliated with anyone). I'm not going just because it's too far from me.

      Also people always say practicing is the key to getting better. but what do they mean when they say practice, new algs? new methods? finger tricks? (etc.)
      1. DGCubes
        DGCubes
        All of those, really. Generally, when people say practicing, they just mean solving over and over again until you get faster. Although, the things you mentioned are more "deliberate" practice and will probably have better results in the long run. But, things like finger tricks generally just improve over time after doing a bunch of solves.

      Hi Dg, I'm very new to cubing and I'm only about a month into it (I know this is probably asked a lot, sorry!) my friend taught me his method for solving a cube which does it job, i am avg of like 1 minute 5 seconds, and I'm wondering if there are methods that I should learn and are there methods that are mandatory for getting better.

        methods (there still are algs to learn, just not so many), whereas ZZ is good if you really like algs and want to learn hundreds (the ~470 algs for full ZBLL aren't mandatory, but they are an option). CFOP is right in the middle, with 78 algs for full CFOP, and plenty of opportunities to work on intuition with F2L. I'd recommend checking them all out in more detail and deciding which one you like best from there. :)

      DG - I am a fairly new cuber (about 4 months in), and I LOVE 2x2. I have a guoguan xinghen as of now. Should I "upgrade" to an OP Dayan?
      1. DGCubes
        DGCubes
        The OP DaYan is good, but isn't necessary at all, and is generally way too expensive to be worth it. A lot of world class 2x2 solvers aren't even using it anymore. I don't have a XingHen so I don't really know what it's like, but I've heard good things about it. In general though, you should only get a different cube if you're not happy with your current main.

        Yeah, people hype up the OP dayan WAY to much, my cousin has an OP Dayan and I mean, it's smooth I guess but it's not as great as even the weipo, the Weipo in my opinion is one of the best 2x2s on the market :D

    Hey, I'm Daniel Goodman, also known as DGCubes here and on YouTube. I'm really into the speedsolving aspect of cubing, so this is a pretty good place for me. You can pretty much find me here on an hourly basis. Not sure if that's a good thing.
