Good morning, all. I ran across ATS during a random Google search, and like the theme and ambiance here so much I decided to sign up. I like "alternative" sources of news, so I couldn't pass this up!

Just a few things about me, since I haven't worked out how to create a profile yet (don't worry, I'll figure it out). I live in north Georgia and have been rambling around the 'net since 2000 or so. I tend to stick to sites about SF/fantasy/horror fiction, gaming, reading and writing, and discussions on current events that are "outside the box", so to speak. I like to learn.

One glance at the topics on this forum tells me I'll find plenty here to occupy me, so I'm really looking forward to chatting with you!

If you haven't been here before... you're about to have your mind blown.

Welcome Tanith47

It's great to have you with us!

Now just pull up a cyber-chair...

...and sit a spell and we'll go through a few things that could be helpful to know.

First of all, as ATS is a big community and there are lots of forums, you might like to check out the Forums page and see what catches your eye. It will also give you some idea on where to put a new thread if you want to start one after you have your first 20 posts. (Oh, and regarding our 20-post rule, perhaps I should just add that besides giving new members a chance to settle in, it also helps in picking up the obvious spammers before they can wreak too much havoc.)

Because there are so many threads already, it's not a bad idea to do a search here before you eventually post yours. Okay, you won't always find an exact match, but it's helpful to check. You can also use it if you just want to find threads on a certain topic.

Here's some of the threads that are worth a visit early on:

Terms & Conditions Of Use (Important stuff!)
The ATS Freshmans Forum
Starting a New Thread ?... Look Here First

If you need help with anything, feel free to send a message to any of the staff. Just mouse over the “member” tag under any staff member's avatar, then click “send message”.

Also, if you see a post that you think is a problem under the T&Cs, then mouse over the poster's "member" tag like before, but this time click “ALERT!” and perhaps write a few words about why you've alerted it. The alert goes straight to staff (with a link to the post) and we'll look into it as soon as we can.

By the way, if you get “flags” on your thread, this is actually a positive thing! So don't worry if your thread gets “flagged”. The more flags, the better!

Anyway, have a good time and see you around the forums!
