I've put together an initial draft of a document with resources. I need help organizing, formatting, and adding resources to it. The idea here is to compile any useful resources/tools/websites/tutorials/channels all in one spot, since it's easy to miss them as there are so many.

Please look at the document here and edit it as you can. We need as much help as possible so please edit and discuss in this thread. Thanks.

J perm’s YouTube channel is extremely useful for getting to sub x and useful advanced tips.

Well when I'm on mobile I used ZXYTimer on my phone or iPad, and on my computer I use cstimer. Other than that I'll use my timer and log them in a notebook I have, but I only do that when I'm doing slightly weird stuff, like when I do 3 2x2 relays.

For learning I either use cubeskills or CyoTheKing's guides.

Just an update to make this page more useful:
https://www.speedsolving.com/pages/resources/

What are the most useful resources that aren't listed on that page? Do you suggest other sections? I'm thinking of:
- Creating subsections for 4x4 and 5x5
- Creating a section for most useful Youtube Videos
- Creating section for best tutorials (for methods, etc.)

Things like these threads would be useful to include in the 4x4 section, for example:
Force OLL Skip with Parity:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/18jkz15qtbjxtqu/Parity-1.pdf?dl=0

Yau Last 2/3 wedges algs:
https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/special-yau-last-2-3-dedges-algorithms.38421/

Or this for virtual solving:
https://speedcube.site/solve/3x3

Can you guys help suggest more resources and/or sections to include?

Lastly, I want to create an introduction page to speedsolving.com for new users to learn how to solve and progress. A page that introduces cubing, basic methods overview for 3x3, and resources to get started and participate in the community. Do you guys have any recommendations on what to include on this page? What is the best 3x3 tutorial for beginners?
