Cubing Term Definitions:

PB - your personal best time of solving a cube. PB stands for “personal best”
mo3 - the mean of three timed solves. mo3 stands for “mean of 3”. If 3 is replaced with a different number, it means “mean of that number”
ao5 - the average of five timed solves. ao5 stands for “average of 5” If 5 is replaced with a different number, it means “average of that number”
sq1 - sq1 is short for Square-1
Squan - squan is short for Square-1
Pyra - short for “pyraminx”
DNF - DNF stands for “did not finish”. If you finish a solve, but the cube is two or more turns away from being solved, the time counts as a DNF
+2 - if you finish a solve and the cube is one move away from being solved, you get a +2 and add 2 seconds to your original time
EP - EP is short for “edge permutation”
CP - CP is short for “corner permutation”
ZB - a method for solving 3x3
LL - LL is short for “last layer”
Algorithm - a series of moves (usually to solve a certain case)
ZBLL - the last layer method in ZB. Has around 500 algorithms.
CFOP - a method for solving 3x3
Roux - a method for solving 3x3
ZZ - a method for solving 3x3
Petrus - a method for solving 3x3
Yau - a method for solving big cubes
Hoya - a method for solving big cubes
Reduction Method - a method for solving big cubes
Begginers' Method - a method for solving 3x3 for begginers
Cross - the first step of CFOP and Begginers' Method
F2L - second step of CFOP. Short for “first 2 layers”. Solves the first and second layer at the same time
OLL - third step of CFOP. Short for “orienting last layer”
PLL - last step of CFOP. Short for “permuting last layer”
First Block - first step of Roux. In that step, you solve a 2x3x1 block
Second Block - second step of Roux. In that step, you solve a 2x3x1 block opposite of the first one
CMLL - third step of Roux. In that step, you orient and permute the corners
LSE - last step of Roux. Short for “last six edges”. Solves the last six edges. Same as L6E
L6E - last step of Roux. Short for “last 6 edges”. Solves the last 6 edges LSE
VLS - the act/method of inserting the last F2L pair into its slot using a different algorithm to also orient the last layer.
CubeShape - the step in solving a Square-1 (sq1, squan) where the puzzle becomes shaped like a cube
EO - short for “edge orientation,” used in methods such as Roux, ZZ, and Petrus
Winter Variation - a last slot method where when you insert the last F2L pair, it orients all top layer corners (useful when top edges are oriented)
WV - short for “Winter Variation” (above)
L4E - short for “last 4 edges.” Is a method for the pyraminx or the last step of that method
Parity - certain cases you can get on big cubes, usually requires a long algorithm to solve
M - sometimes put at the end of a cube name, short for “magnetic”
TheCubicle - a reliable cube shop. Find it here
SpeedCubeShop - a reliable cube shop. Find it here
SCS - short for “SpeedCubeShop” (above)

Have you found a term that's not on here? Let me know.

Seems fitting to me

Hey! If you're seeing this post it's probably pretty old since I don't post all too much here anymore (with some exceptions). Please take what I say with a grain of salt, I'm pretty stupid and my opinions have probably changed by now. If you are looking at a recent one, then yeah that's on me and make fun of me as much as you'd like
