I propose that everyone be required to make 1000 posts before joining the main area.

20 just doesn't cut it.

Don't you think 1,000 is a bit excessive ?
ATS is a bit odd in the fact that we strive for quality, not quantity....

Maybe at most 100 posts to shake out the wheat from the chafe, but restricting new members from being able to start threads would be a detriment to the entire community.

We really want to hear what you have to say, and all of us want to see you start threads with news, ideas, and opinion on diverse subjects. To make that more difficult to new members could drive people away from the site. Perhaps people like you even, you might get frustrated not being able to start an important thread that interests the membership, but you leave because you don't have 1,000 posts.

Keeping the required 20 posts makes sense to me because it gives the Mods a chance to weed out the trolls and still gives new members the opportunity to start their own threads in a short period of time.

Glad to enter the company of people seeking knowledge. Pope says 'Remembrance and reflection, how allied? What thin partitions sense from thought divide.' CERN and event horizons, the collapse of the world economy, flights grounded across Europe...door have been opened that perhaps cannopt be closed again.

Two problems:

  1. When I click on "Zedd's Handbook of ATS Links," I get "Server Not Found."
  2. I have uploaded an avatar and have it in my picture gallery, but it only appears on my profile and not on my posts.

I think I've done that as I do have a photo in a picture gallery.

I clicked on the button to activate the photo as my avatar, but when I do that, it takes me to a profile update page which will not update when I hit "Submit."

Zedd's Handbook of ATS Links

This will help answer more than a few questions you may find your self asking, I..e like *what are points?*



Since the Handbook is not available right now, may I ask what are points?

Points are what you get each time you post, You can see how many you have by lookng at your profile,
You can use this in the "ATS store" thats where you can Jazz up your profile ect like the back ground color ect where your Avatar is,

Here's a good thread on points as well.


ABOUT ATS: The points system. (updated)
*it may need to be slightly updated again.
*


It explains what are points, how you get them, how much you get etc.
