18 tps on an RUL alg sounds pretty legit...
In all seriousness though, 2x2 UWR single is not really a thing. I can promise you there are a decent number of people who have a "single" better than this but haven't reported it because they understand it isn't necessarily an accomplishment.
Not meaning to be a debbie downer, but it just turns out this isn't really something that anyone other than you is going to be excited about.

Broke many 3x3 PB's today:
Ao5: 10.808
Ao12: 11.182
Ao50: 12.189
Ao100: 12.692
Ao250: 12.857

Also, I got a 10.889 Ao5 as the first five solves of the day. Both that and the 10.808 are my first sub 11 ao5's.

E: did some more solves and brought ao100 down to 12.522 and 250 down to 12.839.

Got my first Skewb, Pyraminx and 4x4x4 for Christmas. Never played with any of them before.
PB Skewb: 11,86 (Lucky solve, usually around 20-25.)
PB Pyraminx: 54,17 (I'm finding this one pretty hard to wrap my brain around.)
4x4x4: 8:40,55 (Yes, 8 minutes, down from 3+ hours on my first attempt and down from 1 hour yesterday.)
