Some cubers have an alg or fingertrick that is unique to their style. I introduced many cubers to the U2' fingertrick shown in this video. Sometimes you see this referred to as an "eido U2" after my IRC screenname. I also have a Z-perm that is fairly unique as well (shown in the same video), and a signature H-perm.

Several other cubers have algs named after them too. You sometimes hear reference to Dan Knights' Z-Perm or Rowe's A-perm. Lars Petrus popularized Sune, Niklas, and others, and Bob Burton has a few algs named after him (and a pyraminx method).

What other cubers have a "Signature Move"? What algs have you contributed to the community?

I guess that I popularised the use of the RH index F' (here's an example from 2009) which makes a lot of algs like the J perm really fluid. I also convinced Breandan to start using U2' doubleflick which as far as I'm concerned is pretty much the pinnacle of my cubing achievements.

In terms of alg contributions I was the first person dumb enough to think a strange alg-set like OLS-FE needed documenting: https://sites.google.com/site/babbyandhunny/3x3x3/ols-fe

I also remember back in the day (2008ish) that mine and Jude's CLL sheet did the rounds for a long time when we were 2 of about 10 people that bothered to learn specific 2x2 algs for it and document them. I don't remember if I ever published the sheet we both used to learn EG-1 in 2009. I reckon Jude's most awesome contribution was the L F' z' R' U R' U' R U' R alg.

Also Rowe T-perm <3

For me maybe my x-crosses. Where I solve F2L pairs before the cross edges are solved.

I started using the eido U2 a while back.

And usually mirror algs where possible for alg subsets such as CLL, EG-1, OLL and PLL.

Also the alg I use for z perm for oh is unique. Since a generated it and it could be worse than the normal one.
