I am posting this as a newly-elected Councilor, but not in an official capacity.

Basically, I just want to give my fellow members some idea of what the new Council is up to while we start setting up.

Since this is an entirely new ballgame, it's going to take us a while to get organized. That's normal and to be expected.

During this time, you may not hear a lot from us, but I ask that you be patient. The better we get our internal act together now, the better we can represent you later.

This may take a while, but we're already working on it.

Bear in mind also that some of us haven't even found out they were elected yet, so it will take a bit for some of us just to get used to that.

The Council will be dealing with such matters as how best to solicit your input and keep you informed.

Until we get that figured out, I offer this thread as a way for you to ask me questions and tell me what's on your mind.

Anything goes, but I request honesty and politeness wherever you can spare it.


Sincerely yours,

Majic
ATS DISC Councilor

Dear counsilor,

As you stated above, you would like us to ask questions. Doing what you said, without limitations, i would like to know ho chocolate isnt naturaly blue, why water and the sky is blue, why are clouds not made of cotton candy, why does my computer mouse not have any fur, after all it is a mouse right? And why doesnt my cat attempt to eat my computer mouse. why do cars have 4 whels and not 87,345,298,374,562,937,456,273,458? i think that would make more sense. why was the inventor of the english language so cruel to put an 'S' in the word lisp? why do phone numbers not have a 10 button? why are pencils called pencils? why does my dog poop outside and not inside? what is that little lens on my webcam for, is the governemt watching me? why did i find a cat paw in my chinese order today? why was santa so mean to whip his reindeer until one of thems nose was red? why is it that when someone says, needless to say...they say something anyhow? why do i have to go to the bathroom? ok done...


Ok, on a more serious note...



I WANT ATS T-SHIRTS! I can even help design them. maybe you could send out a t-shirt for something like a thread that reaches the 100 reply mark or something like spending 20,000 points. it wont cost that much to send out a t-shirt. And its good advertising.

I know ATS has been very resistant to commercialization, and though it may seem easy, handling even such seemingly minor things as tee shirts on an international basis is a real hairball.

The different tariffs and import restrictions alone can kill the idea.

Plus, ATS isn't about making money.

That said, I can still float the idea once the Council is set up.

On that front, we're still at the beginning of things, and not all councilors have gotten together in a formal meeting yet.

We're still recruiting assistants and need to agree on such things as how to vote and if we want a chairman.

We are still only at the beginning of beginning.

They do exist, i have seen them. There use to be a shop that sold them, one of those "make you own" kinda things. Ill ask SO for you to see if we still do them.

They were about $15

As an idea to throw out (for members and staff)...

How about a topped thread in Board Questions & Business for each of the ATS Council seats? Could be titled "ATS G Discussion Thread" etc., etc. for each one. That way, all could give their input, and right where their reps would see it. Might even be an idea to give Council Members permissions to move/edit, etc. threads in BQ&B, just to make sure it stays organized...

Just a thought...

Last suggestion: How about some "ATS ___ Council Member" titles in your avatars??? *ducks from SO's hammer*

Sounds good to me.

If no one objects, I will fire up an "ATS DISC Councilor Discussion Thread" in BQ&B. The mods can sticky it if they deem it apropos.

I'm already getting edgy -- it's been three days.

If I remember correctly ATS stopped supporting the sale of the shirts because the quality was less than expected. I believe the logo will wash off fairly quickly. My recommendation is to wait until ATS decides to go forward with another vendor.

We-e-e-l-l-l, since you asked........
Please ask Hunt Administration to do something in reference to that confounded Black Labyrinth Game...(if it is a game ??!!!) At least see if they will admit, or commit themselves as to whether it is or it isn't . They made just the one official comment on the BL, and that was "This is not part of the DrJim Game." ( As far as I can find, at least.)

All other alleged 'clues' were bogus teasers from regular members, not official hints from HA. Thus my question: is it or isn't it? And if it is....how bout some input. ( Thank you so much !!!)

how chocolate isnt naturaly blue,


Has to do with the source.



why water and the sky is blue,


Neither are blue, it's just the way the eye and camera see the light...



why are clouds not made of cotton candy,


Sugarcane only grows so high...



why does my computer mouse not have any fur, after all it is a mouse right?


They tried that, kept getting tangled in it's mouseball...



And why doesnt my cat attempt to eat my computer mouse.


Because cats are basically lazy creatures.



why do cars have 4 whels and not 87,345,298,374,562,937,456,273,458? i think that would make more sense.


Have you ever priced new tires? It's the decision of the masses to stick with only 4. In fact, some even go down to 2 wheels and try to balance...



why was the inventor of the english language so cruel to put an 'S' in the word lisp?


Because linguists are inherently sadistic. Why is there a "W" in "two" when you don't need one? Yet "one" has the "W" sound, but no "W"? I'm convinced that asylum patients, in speaking in tongues, were the originators of most modern languages....




why do phone numbers not have a 10 button?


Because each number is one digit perhaps?



why are pencils called pencils?


If they were called pens, they'd run out of ink.



why does my dog poop outside and not inside?


Be thankful, mine sometimes poop inside, then I have to clean it up...



what is that little lens on my webcam for, is the governemt watching me?


Of course, how do you think Paris' video got on the web?




why did i find a cat paw in my chinese order today?


Because cats taste like chicken, and are often cheaper. As I've already mentioned, they are also lazy, so easy to catch.



why was santa so mean to whip his reindeer until one of thems nose was red?


Nah, it was a birth defect.



why is it that when someone says, needless to say...they say something anyhow?


Because people are basically stupid creatures.



why do i have to go to the bathroom?


Same reason the dog goes outside...it's easier to clean up.



ok done...


Thank goodness, my fingers are tired....

Since when? Look around you, see all the ads (if you havent blocked them)? We need to make money to support the site, ATS HAS to be about making money, not primarily tho. Selling swag would help support the site with rising technology and hosting costs, and give the members some cool stuff!

This is just a suggestion;
Why don't they create an official ATS T-shirt design and put it at the store so peopel can buy it and get it printed on as many T-shirts( of different colors maybe!) as they want!
Just a suggestion, don't know if this idea has already been brought up already!

IAF
