whats "pop" and is this message going through? Do you talk to just one person at a time in here or is it like writingon a "wall"?

pop is when during a solve, a piece (usually more though) comes out of the cube

iSpinz, this is a forum so you can see everyone's post and everyone can see your posts. You are not guaranteed a response, but if you say something interesting you probably will get a good response

NorwegianClassic: Single WR is 7.08 and Average WR is 10.63. You can see more details here. Most of the top-cubers use the Fridrich method. At home, people have gotten even faster single and averages times

plz help me!!
i'm new to cubing and currently i've learned the begginers method that uses spamming of R' D R D'.....

i want to ask some Question:

1. am i on the right track??? bcoz when i watch the badmephisto's clip about beginners method... he uses CFOP method... and my algs on solving only cover until the CF part and the rest is different.... should i switch to OLL and PLL???

2.i've read other post about the cross... and some people say that max moves on solving cross is 8 moves.... what is a move?? is it a algs (R D' R.etcetc) or just R/L/D....

thanks b4

maybe your solving the cross on the top? in which case solve it on the bottom and with the last part of the cross, make the move and with the pieces that dont move much then look out out for f2l pairs

watch my tutorial on it (theaccidentalfreak), mine is a different method to badmephisto's, but the corner placement is easier. not trying to promote my youtube, and badmephisto's tutorial is much better. as and alternative, watch robh0629's tutorial. apparently he goes very slowly, but he explains things better. get back to me about how its going

edit:this is response to mikaru
