He shouldn't post until he has a good rep.

He can't get a good rep without posting.

He can't post without...

DJR, Have you ever read "Catch 22"?

well, If you post meh things with a good rep, people will know you can build better stuff and not consider you a bad builder...... He can get a good rep with posting, just post cool new stuff that has good range/power and has something new or looks good no, I havent read "catch 22", never heard about it either

we all start on something. I started with block triggers although I never posted. I still had to post something even if it wasn't that great just to get me starting. It's the same for everyone else.

Its not his first knex gun tho. I started with RBG's but I never posted. I still posted my sniper rifle, mostly because I didnt know the standards and I had a positive reaction on the fourm

Give it an actually stand and then give it something that actually explodes. I've been waiting a long time for someone to make a mortar that launches either IaC's war bomb or my Suplody. Mortars are made for some heavy ground support after all.

Awesome! Will you be able to make it use both of our bombs? The Suplody has more shrapnel while your WB is just easier to make and use so unless we mash these two together some how I think it would be best to be able to fire both types.

The zeroth law is bent and twisted in the knexer's world. posting a knex project depends on the quality of the item, and if it has anything new. This motar has nothing new, and its quality is meh.

A quick search reveals only six K'NEX mortars, none like this. Ergo, the Zeroth Law is clearly applicable.

It can look very different from other mortars, but still not have anything new. same goes for quality

I didn't say this was a new design. However, it achieves its ends through a different arrangement of pieces to the other designs on this site. As for quality, define "meh" - are you claiming it doesn't work? That it will fall apart upon firing? That its range is poor? Zeroth Law applies. The real story here is a member trying to set himself up as "top dog" in K'NEX, controlling what other K'NEXers post. That is not in the spirit of this site, and not a pleasant thing to see.

well, in the knex world "meh" means its nothing special- it can be simple and reliable, but there is nothing that sets it apart from other knex guns... but still, im not trying to set myself up as top dog in knex, and others have said they dont want this gun posted too. (i may be trying too too hard tho)
