Many thanks

OK, I've said 'hello' and been bowled over by the awesomely warm reception (thank you all) and now I've read and understood the Rules. I'm thinking that deserves a fresh brew of coffee and a stroll round the boards.

Just another reminder of why we don't pick locks in use...

Just had a lad who got into trouble picking the front door lock with his new Southord set. Pick got stuck and he had to drill the lock out and with nowhere to get a replacement at this time of night he had to pay for a locksmith to come and sort it out for him.

On the plus side, he called me and I was able to give him an old lock to play with and I directed him to the forum so hopefully he will have learnt his lesson and has found a good hobby.
:sign10: Plus one for being a gentleman. :notworthy:

a lot of times in life it is better (more fun?) to ask for forgiveness rather than permission

but when it comes to forum rules, you did the right thing in getting clarification first

Right :) It looks like I read that post in a different way than it was supposed to. That makes sense.

I have no intentions to pass any auto locks around or start a competition with one involved, I felt more that better ask and look stupid for a while than not ask and walk in the dark if it was this or that. I appologise if I went over the line in any meaning, not what I had in mind but it happens sometimes when things comes out wrong.
And again, my sincere appologies.

I think baldi's comment "we all do it "does not refer to auto locks

what we do in private is generally our own business but what we do/post on the forum is governed by the rules - no auto locks irrespective of the thread or purpose in the open forum

there is a VIP section where some rules are relaxed but I can tell you that I'd hard pressed to remember a time when auto locks were discussed and I can certainly not remember any car lock pass arounds or competitions etc

in the main, we are all here for locksport and car locks is not part of that

This might be stupid and I should know better but...
As Baldi writes
Bypassing requires little to no skill and can be used by criminals to rob your shed. Picking requires practice and skill, even raking.
Auto is a whole other world that is usually left to professionals and theives.
Part take in all aspects of lock sport but leave some stuff of open forum and public domain.
The above is not taboo as we all do it but don't show to general public.
Does this mean that I can pick a car lock for example but I'm not permitted to put it up on the "What I've picked today"-thread due to rule 2? As a continue to that lock, ok or not ok to send it forward to another member on the site? Use it as a part of a competition?

As I said above, it might be stupid questions and, just to be clear, it's not the rule I'm question. These questions comes more to know how to behave to not violate it. With Baldi's comment in mind.
