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:

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.

I have read the rules, they  seem very reasonable.

Many thanks

7. Competitions - A member running the competition can make their own rules, but unless otherwise stated, a member needs to have at least 10 rep points to enter a competition.



How does one go about gaining rep points?
We shall pick on the beaches, we shall bypass on the landing grounds, we shall unlock in the fields and in the streets, we shall over-ride in the hills; we shall never surrender, you will succumb to our picks...

They are given to you by other members if you do something kind, post a picture of a lock you've picked or a pick you've made etc.

Hint - post a lot, ask questions..

;)

Thank you for the reply.... and now for a follow up question... How does one go about giving rep points? is there a button to press (I fear my eye sight is failing because I can't find one)? or do i type something in? (I've seen +1 in some replies)

There is a small green arrow under your profile picture. People write '+1' to indicate they've pressed this button.
Reputation is one way to show people are trusted by no means should it be a goal to reach a high reputation.
Just stick around and post questions, pictures, and insightful comments and you'll get the trust within a month.

The green arrow will appear after a certain post count.

Go and comment on a few videos and see what happens.
Roblocks just added a brilliant video over in his video thread - go watch that and comment on it !!
