I have spent a long time lurking through these forums. I found this place by accident but once I did my eyes became opened and I have awoken from my slumber.

I have followed great topics on here especially the Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent triple meltdowns at fukushima.

The one thing I have Learned is that you must use you mind to decipher what is truth and what is disinformation. ATS has guided me in the proper methods of discussing opinions with others who may not generally agree with you. Which is why I feel that I have grown and learned enough that I can bring my thoughts and opinions here and find a place that I can hear what others think about them.

I look forward to my time here. And thank you members of ATS for doing what you do here. It really is amazing.

Welcome to the madhouse.

It can be a fun place, and it can drive you mad as well. This is not your everyday site as manners are strictly enforced. Oddly enough, I find that to be refreshing.

Enjoy the debates!

Watch the void.

Is there any advice as to what not to do early in my time here. I know this is a place not like others that don't get named
. I just want to do the right things to contribute.

You'll find that out as you go. Primarily try and remember not to take anything personal.

By the way, welcome to the site and thanks for the glowing review. If you read along the Fuku thread then you know more than most whats going on there.

Swearing, Belittling and bullying are all frowned upon.

Though you will see belittling in some of the forums. Namely the religious and 9-11 forums.

Other than that, take a opposite stance in a respectful manner and you are golden. Basically, treat people as to how you would expect to be treated.

Thank you all for the quick answers and help for the new guy.

One last question. What are the stars and flags and how do they work exactly?

Flags bestow immortality. Gather as many as you can.

Stars show that you are bringing, for the most part, enjoyable content to threads.

I gave you a flag...long live magnum...

Welcome to the land of truth and make believe. Like flying dodo's!

True?


Enjoy the time here and if you get frustrated remember your mantras. Also, keep you hands and feet inside until the ride has come to a complete stop.
