### SCO - Scratch Cubing Organization - The Official Rubik's Cube Forum

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)

Seems fitting to meI believe so… where else would it be? Uh should this be in this topic?

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
