You can reply to any thread in any member forum you wish, once you have achieved 20 posts, you will then be able to start your own threads. You can use this time to compose your thread and get the feel of how ATS operates.
20 thoughtful posts take no time at all. takes pride in making every post count.

Take your time, there is no rush.

ok ive read most of the advise on here about how to set up an avatar, and most of them are out dated or i get a 404.

in one tutorial it said to go to member center- if there is a "member center" on here i will eat my computer- ive been searching for two hours trying to set up my avatar- sorry someone screwed up- its just not there.

ive registered on a lot of sites and ive never had this much trouble setting up an avatar.

Have you tried clicking on "Tools+" on the blue line near the top of the page?

Just click "tools" on the toolbar... scroll down a ways and you'll see "Your Avatar". Click on "upload Avatar" to the right. Click "upload photo" and then click "browse". Click "add photo".

Once the photo uploads click "options" and then click "select as avatar" from the drop down menu that appears.

hey heff thanks for trying to help this dumbass,
but its still isin't working.

it says:
NOTE: This avatar is for your media center profile only. For your ATS discussion board avatar, use your My Pictures personal picture album space on the media portal, and follow the instructions in this video if you're unclear on what to do.

i cant find the media portal and the video wont play either!

ive never heard of pictures in an album being called avatars- avatars are the picture that accompanys your post.

Hey lonewolf!

Your going to have to upload the image you want to use as an avatar from your PC or portable device, to the ATS media portal, using the steps listed above.

Once it's uploaded to the ATS media portal, that is where you'll be able to click on the pop up menu to make it your avatar.

Here is information specific to the size requirements for Avatar images.

If you click on "tools", in the above blue bar and scroll downward, you'll come to a section entitled "Your Avatar" to the immediate right of that is, in a slightly smaller font, "upload avatar". Click that and you should go directly to - and that's the media portal

i think the 20 post limit should be removed to start a new thread, or at least if some new member has an interesting post, the post should be kept atleast a mod can look at it and then create in the new new member's name

I can understand you frustration, But... It really is in place to help everyone have a better experience here on ATS,
As we are a large board we had issues where people would join just to spam about everything you can think of.. From phones and shoes and even stuff that i cant mention!!

I know its a pain trying to get those 20 posts but its really not very hard, Just say "hey" to a few other new members and reply to a few other posts and you will be there in no time at all,

If you go to recent posts the you will see a off topic forum tab, There you can chat about more light hearted stuff such as music and general chit chat, Im sure you can find a few bits there to add your thoughts to intern getting you 20 posts,


posted on Feb, 6 2011 @ 08:40 AM
Could I please resquest the moderators to allow me to make a topic without the 20 posts?? I'm on a strict time limit with my research work. It wont be a pointless topic. I'm researching for my thesis on conspiracies on the net. Just one thread. I tried contacting the admin, but havent recieved a reply yet.

How do I put up my avatar so that it's seen on the left of my posts? I put the image link in the account settings under "Your Avatar" but it doesn't seem to work; any ideas?

Figured it out. Woot.

Now then ATS mods

I am loving the site, was a lurker for ages.
But I am having a slight problem with my time settings. They are insisting (as much as a computer can insist) that I am at +3 GMT. I am in the U.K. I keep on trying to set my time zone to GMT but immediately after pressing edit the time zone doesn't save and reverts back to +3GMT.
Am a little bit puzzled but it's no big deal really.

Oh Me, so many rabbit holes to follow.

Hi to all, I'm a new member but have stopped by many times.
It is nice to read differing opinions.

I do need help, how may I ask for all these great thinkers to answer what I can't find online?
The main one right now is two words OF and FOR.
It appears there are two Constitutions one with the word OF the united states of America and the other FOR the United States of America...
What I have found so far is the Act of Congress in 1871, which created the ten miles of Washington D.C.
I believe the Clearfield doctrine adds a truth, but just can't seem to find truth that backs up the fact that two Constitutions exist and when it changed...

I suppose it is best to ask if this has been discussed and the best way to find before inquiring?
