My school is the exact same, and if someone knows how to solve the rubick's cube, they just don't practise. hope that will change. Anyway my accomplishment is getting my first sub 20 solve with a new method (roux).
Do you realize that it's a post from 2007?
Btw badmephisto hasn't been active since '09.
Also btw my friends are the same too except for one who is sub 15 on 3x3 and sub 4 on pyra

Speedsolverd a RediMinx today!
You don't really hear much about this puzzle. It can be a frustrating solve as it's so easy to put the edges in backwards. At least it's intuitive rather than learning algorithms though.

I had solved it only once before today, so I decided to time myself... it took me 42m33s!

2nd solve, 2h8m48s - would have been below 2 hrs, except I screwed up last 4 edges.
Agonising close to 2h on 13x13 this time... 2h0m24s!

Finally got my sub-16 ao1000 with ZZ-CT after consistently maintaining sub-16 ao100 for a month. Guess I just don't solve much

Got my first sub-13m on 7x7 : 12m57.24s.

Also, knocked 2m18 off my 11x11 PB, to 55m59s.

I've also only recently gotten back into megaminx, and my session is like 6 seconds slower than what it was when I was active (62 and 56). It was quite surprising to say the least.

I am finally averaging under 20 seconds on 3 by 3 :

(this is on a twisty timer)

It took a lot of effort to get here. At one point, I felt really bad when my average slipped over 38 seconds. But, now it is under 20!!!
I want to thank you all for this. It would have been impossible to get here without so much help and support (and the RSM 2020 cube, recommended by you all).

It took me 5 months to get from sub-40 to sub-30, but on the other hand, it took me just 3 months to get from sub-30 to sub-20.
So, it clearly shows that this website (I joined it just before I became sub-30) has made the difference. I am really grateful. I hope I will receive a lot of help and support once more
when I attempt to get to sub-10.

Congrats!

planning on maining HK since I'm bored with other methods at the moment.
for all these solves I used normal f2l-1 (no eo) CLL,L5E(intuitive) and I'm really not sure on which variant to choose?

Sub 1m on void cube today (well technically an ordinary 3x3 without centre caps).

57.83s, only the 5th time I've ever gone below 1m on a 3x3.

I just wish I could solve the 3x3 stage on big cubes that fast.

#### vidcapper

Don't worry, you will!!
Maybe. I just broke 9m for the 6x6 for the first time...

8m56, a 28s improvement. (oll parity only)

for hiese I used heise blockbuilding and ocll pll
sorry if some of the methods were very simular, was kinda stretching to find my 12 fastest "methods"
the methods were in a list to do in order before I started, so there was no method-scramble advantages(unless accidental).
freeZZ is like freefop, EO than blockbuild however.
ones second, forgot to add method names let me edit that in:
1.ZZ(cross)
2.ZZ(line)
3.freeZZ
4.petrus
5.freefop
6.mehta(l5E)
7..HK(l5E)
8..CFOP
9.roux
10.skis
11.waterman
12.heise
