Pilot project description
Welcome to the wiki for building the new guide on lock picking. Once we have enough material, we will turn it into a nice PDF file, which will be free to all. If you are coming here to learn how to pick locks, feel free to look around, but you are probably too early. However, if you can pick locks, and are willing to write about it, you are just the sort of person we want on this project. Note that this is not restricted to members of any particular forum or organization; anyone who can help is welcome, but do not add references to your forums, organization, or clubs in the main text, this site should be for everyone.
Try to respect other peoples changes, and not spoil their good work, but if you have better ideas try them out. The golden rule is that the site should be improved by your contribution.
Also, try to write a book rather than the world's longest SMS message!
If you have an idea for a section, but cannot think what to say, either just add a title for it, or add a title for it and a comment in <…> suggesting what is needed where the text should be.
If you have a completely different way of explaining something here, do not delete the original and replace it with your own, but rather make a new page so we can work out the best way of integrating it into TOLG.
What can we build on?
If we are to go beyond the MIT guide, it might help to have a look at it again before you start. Well, here it is:
We want to go beyond every other free guide too, see the list of lock picking guides.
Make a page
If you have an idea for a section, make a reference to it on this page, but make a new page for the section itself. We want this first page to stay short.
A few things to sort out before we get started:
