Hello new members! Welcome to ATS.
I have recently adopted a newbie via the Adopt a New Member Thread.
For those of you
who just joined (and are feeling a bit overwhelmed) or those veterans who have considered adopting a newbie..... this is what I sent my adoptee via
U2U. Thought I'd share:
It's easy to get over-whelmed when first joining such a large community.
Before doing a lot of posting please look over the Terms & Conditions
The next thing I would suggest is to get your post count to 20
so you can send U2U's! One way to accomplish this quickly is to pay
a visit. BTS (BelowTopSecret) is a place for members to unwind and engage in more casual
discussions. These forums are usually moderated less strictly, a good way to meet other members, and can quickly get that post count to 20!
Another good place to pop into sometimes is the BBQ
(Board Business & Questions) Forum.
Lots of current news, contests, reminders, and ideas/opinions about ATS can be found there.
don't get intimidated by how many posts, points or whatever another member has. You have just as much right to post your thoughts so
long as you follow the Terms & Conditions.
