Merger Proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was not merge. No consensus. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 04:35, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

The Open Organization Of Lockpickers, while a most valuable organization, clearly fits within the scope of Locksport. While TOOOL "brought bumping to public attention" it was known throughout the community for quite some time and I personally dont feel that this makes TOOOL notable enough for its own page. This info would very easily fit in a section of "Community Achievements" or similar that could also discuss other fairly major issues that locksport enthusiasts have brought to public view.

I realize that the article has already survived an AfD review and as such I figured it was best to propose the merger before being bold. Also in the interest of full disclosure, I will state that I am not only a member of the Locksport community, but I also am the main contributor(only for now) to the Locksport article.

I don't think you could fit this history into the main article, per its modernist context. Only got a vague idea of what "scrubbing" is, but even I realise groups that teach it get a lot of attention in crime novels (Jeffrey Deaver for instance) and the like. You should probably wait and merge it to an appropriate subarticle, even though as you say that may not be written until a few years from now. Ottre 18:30, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Obsolete References[edit]

The two sources pointing to locksport.com/faq.php (6. "Ok, but what good could come of a club like yours?" and 10. "Aren't you just teaching people to break into things?") are obsolete, as clicking them leads to a 404 error. I don't really know much about Wikipedia's policy on sources so I haven't edited the page, but I thought I'd at least point it out.--67.161.204.116 (talk) 01:42, 24 April 2010 (UTC) I am the content owner for Locksport.com and I updated those references. --Bill Sempf (talk) 19:38, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Feynman? nein[edit]

Richard Feynman opened Los Alamos safes and cabinets with combination locks. He did this variously by trying the (unchanged) factory setting, by looking for where the combination had been written down, by attempting various social hacks (e.g. a significant date, or in one case the first six digits of e), or simply persistence (trying one number after another until something worked). There is no evidence that he ever picked a lock. Therefore, I've removed this (unsourced) claim.
