I'm doing my best to learn Square-1 and get in the Silver member. I know that 5x5 blind will fall occasionally but that damn Square... I hate it. After that, If I can finally can get the 3x3 Bld average, Gold member club should be easy to get :) Congrats to all 60!!

I picked up a lot of my missing events at Wiscube 2nd Edition! Now all I need for platinum are Megaminx average, 6x6 single and average, 7x7 single and average.

I have a lot of practicing ahead of me haha, but I'm up for it :)

Coincidentally, megaminx average and 7x7 average were the hardest for me and the last two items I needed to become a gold member. 5BLD is easy, its those dang big cube cut-offs! :)

Congrats on your gold status! :)

Yes cut offs are really intimidating for me right now. I could not meet the cutoff at Wiscube for a Megaminx average.

I guess it takes about a year to go from novice to under the cut offs? At least that seems reasonable for someone like me with a light practice regimen.

Do you have any advice for meeting the cut offs? Should I start learning advanced methods right away, or just go with my own intuition?

Megaminx and big cubes are all down to practice. If you are really intent on getting those results, spamming practice is pretty much all that's needed.
