I wish I had a "welcome template" like some of the others here, saying to read the rules etc. Just do as they say! :)

There's a wealth of information on this forum and if you can't find what you're after just ask. The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

Don't be afraid of posting photos of locks you pick on the way as we all like pictures, no matter how easy they are to open. Everybody started somewhere and like seeing people progress. You don't have to pick a Medico to get a +1! In fact there's a whole thread on "What you didn't pick today"' :)

More than anything, have fun and keep it legal!


I think I've just written my first "welcome template"

Welcome to the group mate. You're right, the site is slightly confusing to begin with, simply because of the massive amount of information in the old threads. Your best bet is to dive into the active threads first using the unread posts button, and drill down into older threads to learn about specific stuff via the search function.

Jump in, post plenty, and make a general arse of yourself...that's what the rest of us do.
