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.
