It may seem like a lot, but 200 isn't so hard at all.

The reason it's there is that by 200 posts you'll be a veteran of ATS. You'll have had a few scuffles, and will know the rules quite well by then, and how the site works. Chat is a privilege, not a right, and is held to the same standards as ATS.

If you want it, then get it. You'll get there in no time.

Sadly I am nearing 5k posts. I apologize for all the brain cells I've helped kill, although you can always click the ignore option under my name *wink*


Hey man, 200 posts will fly by!

That's pretty funny.

I always thought chat was pretty much a waste of time. Pretty fun when you're drunk, though.

eh, Banshee?

Might this rule just increase the amount of meaningless and pointless posts from people who are posting solely to up their post count so they can use the chat rooms? What if new members could just apply for chat room membership just as they do for general ATS membership? I think I will only manage about three or four posts a day, at that rate it will take me a month and a half to be given this chat room privilege. I would rather slowly add contributive posts than run wild with reactionary and inane replies as some members do in their early days of ATS membership.

good idea,
but the post amount is there so it helps you to become a ATS member, by the time you reach 200, you are one of us!

Fair enough. I am afraid that by the time I reach 200 posts, my interest in ATS will wane again. I just hope that I am not that close to a personality swing, but it is possible. I'd just like to get to know members through the chat room in a way that the slow back and forthness of threads make impossible.

By starting this thread, you brought yourself a little closer to your goal, see how easy that was? Now repeat 191 (near as I can tell at the time of this post) and you'll be chatting away (and probably be complaining about how much RATS costs).

Dismissed.

Jaded, keep contributing quality posts. That's what ATS is about.

Last year, I was forced to take a many month long hiatus from ATS. And, coming back to it was hard. Very hard. So I started off small, posting here and there, three or four a day quality as you said.

But, you can't take it. You get sucked it. You ascribe to more forums as three becomes ten, then 15, and you end up back at ATS en force.

Don't worry, it's a safe addiction.

Ive taken many breaks from ATS in the past, its hard when you come back, i started off small aswell. Its not hard to hit 200 posts, i use to reply to every post that appeared each day, it was hard, but i learnt a lot.

actually about the whole killing brain cells i had this weird teacher come in during english 10 and say she had a daughter that was half mentally challenged and that she made her daughter crawl and read as much as she could..supposedly her daughter now is a psychologist or sometin like that..but reading does boost brain cells

In all my days here in ATS, I've gone from loosing 250 points on my first day, to gaining 250 points recently for the idea on requiring a certain number of posts in order to enter chat.


Yea I was in Chat when we had the whole issue with chat abuse, I started throwing out ideas, not sure if I was the cause or not, I just know I was given 250 points for my help.

Shattered OUT...
