I'd say first of all "practise all the time", as often as you can, in the bus, etc. For the rest I let more experimented people help you xD
Also I'm pretty sure you can find topics for beginners on the forum^^

Still relatively new to the weekly competitions, this is the most I've done so far. I have only ever practiced 3x3 for speed.

2x2: 8.84, (17.46), 8.68, 10.34, (7.65) = 9.29
3x3: 18.97, (17.69), 18.98, (21.90), 17.92 = 18.63
2x2-4x4 relay: 2:36.06

I started to learn cubing on christmas :D wanted to give this a try. Any tips?
Sure, I'll send you a direct mesage. Very nice for only a week so far.

Just a warning - we are currently having some technical difficulties getting the first week of the new year posted. Bear with us and we'll try to get it posted as soon as we can.

Welcome!
There's a Wiki in this Forum with algorithms.
There's also lots of methods on the net with algs or videos on YouTube if you prefer that.
I think your biggest problem will be to choose :)

Will there be one of those yearly roundups for the Weekly Comps of 2016?

(Also, I think this is my first time at #1 and I know Jacob or Ray are gonna swoop in for the win. :p)

Also, is there a way to specify my gender on the site? (So that it doesn't say "His best time results"). Not a big deal to me, but am just curious. :)

Yes, in a day or two (after this is final).
I don't know. Where does it say "His best time results?". If I have written it I'll change it.
("neutralize" it).

Not a very important detail I guess, but would it be possible to remove all the "fake" results (e.g. 0 move FMC) from the results page? In the past it wasn't that bothersome, but this year almost all the records are "fake" timings.

I totally agree with you.
We're working on it now (those and other changes will come soon if not from this week)
