ok, now I can understand why others on my forum (the one you signed up for today) are not happy with your recent Medeco video post. I don't think you understand how posting on a forum works, it's not a highway bill board for advertising your youtube channel and social media account to get more followers and subscribers. You're supposed to post things on a forum that are for that forum, not just links to outside content. You're suppose to reply to other's posts, ask questions, help others by providing tips and answers, and be part of the community on the actual forum, not just stop by once a week to write "bump".

glad I stopped by and saw this thread... :???:

Re: TurtleMonkey's Lock Picking Videos

I am glad to be taught how to properly post this, since I was informed to do it this way. Maybe adding the bumps or added video replies weren't correct, but I did report the first few to see what the mods wanted me to do about it. Either way I removed the context and you can remove it anytime you want. No, I don't know the proper way to share my latest content, only one person offered an idea on how to do it and obviously (this) it wasn't the correct way.

Very interesting to see how members would rather complain on here and on the other forum instead of seeing someone that is new to posting to forums and offering help. Thank you for the helpful information.

BTW, wasn't trying to be a billboard or anything like that. I was trying to help new pickers learn a few helpful tips or how I picked locks they might run into.

Don't worry I won't post anymore of my videos on here to keep from annoying anyone else. I will still try to help anyone I can and share information I come across, but won't post my videos.

Turtle0Monkey wrote:Well hello, I know I haven't posted to any threads lately, but busy with projects, school and work. I was told to do this for my YouTube videos about lock picking. If this isn't the proper way to have a spot just for my videos I will gladly remove it, but it was recommended to me by another member to help consolidate my videos. I will try to more active on the threads, I am helping on the reddit.com/r/lockpicking. Just haven't had a chance to keep conversation here.


Perhaps I should have posted some helpful advice earlier, but like you I've been somewhat occupied with the events that life throws at us. We have this subforum for you to be able to post videos, you don't need to take your youtube channel link down.

I think adding new videos to your thread is probably the best way to go, rather than a new thread for each video. Likewise just posting "bump" every few days, while not specifically against forum rules, it can tend to irritate many forum members. If people see there is a new post on a thread, they click on it with the expectation of getting new content to view. Clicking just to see "bump" is disappointing. It's just human nature. I think a good way to bump your thread would be to post a link to a new video instead of just typing "bump".

As to posting links, commercialization, and forums in general I find it's usually a good idea to familiarize myself with the rules of a new forum when I join. Some places allow outside links, some only allow non-commercial links, don't don't allow any. On top of it all though, a forum is usually a place where like minded people can meet to discuss a common topic. If you participate in discussions, post more than just some links, it'll let people get to know you as a person and not just a youtube channel.

Just my two cents.

Re: TurtleMonkey's Lock Picking Videos

Originally I posted my channel info and whenever I posted a new video(s) I posted a reply. Then I got told that was incorrect way of doing as well. I have read the forum rules and try to add context that is helpful to members or comment on their post. I tend to post and comment more on the Sub-Reddit more though. Just let me know what the best way to go about that and I will follow those guidelines.
