Hey ya
I believe that you need about 20 posts to be able to start getting vids ect up, You are on 10 posts now so not many to go, Maybe welcome a few other new members and your post count will go up real quick,

cant wait to see what you have got for us to look at!

Hi, guys

I'm new to ATS and admittedly, I came here for help with what others would call physical metamorphosis. I have been trying for many years to change my physical appearance so that it matches how I feel inside. I know how ridiculous this sounds to people on the "outside" but I truly believe it is out there. Is there anyone here who has any experience with physical transformation? I would appreciate any insight you have

And I'm not talking about man to woman or anything like that, even though I'm sure that is possible too.

Hey.... I think I have done something wrong? I have been commenting on threads outside of the Introduction's forum... is that wrong? I am really sorry if it is! It wasn't intentional, or are we aloud to comment on all threads until we reach the point in which we can make our own?

Sorry sorry sorry!!!

First... the "WATS" score. I know many believe there to be some controversy or at the least, unfairness, in the method of calculation for the "Way Above Top Secret" ranking. The concerns/comments/ideas have not been ignored, but since the intent is to apply a heavy statistical weight to those who start threads, I believe the oft-discussed formula serves that purpose well, but may be refined as a result of the KARMA rank in order to place a much higher value on flags.

However, there are lots of members who contribute well, but may not start many threads; the KARMA score is for them. The karma calculation places a high weight on stars, a secondary weight on staff applause, and a tertiary lesser-weight on Flags; then compares all that against the number of posts. So that it is indeed possible for a new member with few threads, but great ideas in lots of replies, to achieve a higher "KARMA" than long-time high-WATS members.

For the avatar set up, try this thread:

The rest of that stuff has been answered about a billion times throughout this thread if you look through it.

Posts = Total # of posts

Flags = Total # of Flags for threads started by you

Stars = Total # of Stars from any posts by you

Wats = WATS, a calculation based mostly upon Flags, but partly based upon Stars as well

Karma = A calculation based mostly upon Stars, but partly based upon Flags as well.

New members must attain 20 replies before they can create new threads.

Pick a topic or Forum that interests you and jump in.
Or start an An Introduction Thread

And when you get your 20 might want to review this link.
Starting a New Thread ... Please Look Here First.

I will first give you this link,

Zedd's Handbook of ATS Links


Dead link.




You will find your u2u's in the member center





I don't see anything like that on this site, nor do I find any portion labeled "Member Center" anywhere.

Wow!

You found some really old stuff there. ATS didn't look like that since even before I started here.

If you want to get to your U2Us you need to click on the TOOLS+ button at the top. It will take you to your account settings page where you will see a tab marked MESSAGES along the top left of your screen. Hit that button and it will take you to your U2Us.

Here's a few more up to date links telling how to do stuff here on ATS:

Can you post on others posts to get to 20 posts or do you have to do 20 new posts?
A lot of posts in that sentence.

Yes, you can add a reply to the threads that other people have started, if that's what you mean.
In fact that's what you need to do, because you can't start your own yet.

Is there a way to pick up where you previously left off when reading a thread you "subscribe" to. For instance, some threads have 200+ pages. If I subscribe to it and read the first 136 pages, but have to come back later to read the remaining pages, I would prefer to not have to wade through the entire thread to figure out where I got to. Answer may be obvious, but I haven't figured out everything on here yet. Alternatively, if you could point me to a thread on the subject if you don't feel like explaining it for the 100th time.

The best way to do this if you have posted in the thread would be to go to "TOOLS" at the top of the page,

Then select "PROFILE"

you will then see on your profile a tab saying "POSTS" click that and when you see the thread you posted on just click on it, That will take you to your last post on that thread,

If you have not posted in the thread then i would suggest saving the link at the time you stop reading the thread so when you click back it will be where you left off,
