It would be good if abovetopsecret would make that clear generally (20 reply posts needed before a new member can post a new thread), removing the need for newer members like me to have to do a Google search to find a thread like this which explains.

In "about ATS", there is the legend:

' Our free memberships provide a host of services that either require monthly fees within some communities, or simply don't exist anywhere else. They include:

Secure Messaging: A secure private communication system among members
Chat: Full-featured members-only chat
Full Posting: There are no restrictions on "novice" accounts
'

---

This comes not far above the section in the "about" page which is:

' "Conspiracy Theories"
While "conspiracy theorists" are often derided or the target of jokes, the fact remains that Americans love a good conspiracy theory. Many of the more popular and highest grossing movies are based on core ideas
'.



I know that much of the so-called 25 principles of the Illuminati come down to confounding, annoying, torturing ordinary people.

Do you think there could be anything in this? That, just above the conspiracy theories section, there is this lie about "no restrictions" on new members from posting what could be very important information. Could ATS want newbies to run away and shut up, or at least toe the line for a while, maybe until they get too tired to make a fuss with a new news post?

Let's be clear, ATS. Everyone makes mistakes - but that's really annoying. You must have sent away lots of confused new members who don't realise why they can't post. Perhaps they've thought their computers have been infiltrated by PRISM also. It's quite disconcerting, you know - like those commenting above this, I too got the clear, white screen after I selected to make a new thread (after reading your legend about "no restrictions").

Come on - if you have restrictions, say you have restrictions. If you don't want to have restrictions, then simply take away the restrictions. One or the other. But please don't go giving those in the so-called Illuminati networks a little run for their money on their kind of "ballgames".

So... You have to do 20 introductory posts? Or do replies like this count? Or am I reading like a silly person?

It's twenty quality posts. You can start a thread in the introductions forum, but to start a thread in the other forums you just need 20 posts. You can post in any thread that isn't in a restricted forum.

Hey sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but what do the other symbols mean? What is my karma and how is it calculated? How does it affect me? How long till I get to be above top secret, also what are the stars for? Good or bad?

Karma is a long and complicated formula only understood by the great SkepticOverlord. Many have tried, all have walked away muttering something about needing a large infusion of alcohol.

WATS is a combination of many things, and is used to restrict certain forums, such as 9/11. That builds up as you post.

Stars are given by other members. If they like your post, they'll click the star in the upper corner of it.

Flags are when you post a thread and other people flag it by clicking on the big flag at the top of the page
It will turn white instead of blank/grey ... You can only flag a thread once

I have no idea how the Karma thing is calculated ... it has no affect as far as I know

The stars are for when you think a post is good quality ... you can star other's posts ... but only once per post
Sorta the same as as liking something on Facebook but better in my opinion

Above Top Secret is a forum ... not sure if you need 20 posts to contribute to it
A MOD or more knowledgeable member will may tell you

The WATS score is Way Above Top Secret. There used to be an award for WATS, now it's a sore based on applause, posts, and I believe something else but don't remember exactly. It's one of the scores shown in your mini profile.

One thing we do know about the Karma formula is that there's a "divide by the number of posts" in there somewhere.
So people who post a lot, without compensating stars, may find the figure going down instead of up.

Thanks so much guys. Is flagging good or bad? I've been flagged twice. Probably for saying something un-intelligent haha... That happens a lot.

Flagging is done to bring attention to a thread
