I need info about some stuff about stuff in the mini-profile and related things. I couldn't find stuff about it in the search for some reason. Can you either tell me or give me links about these things.

1. What is that bar thing that gets bigger near the ATS points, why is it different colours for some people? What happens once it's full.

2. What is that little "warn" icon that pops up at certain users, what would happen if I click it.

3. What is "Vote for RATS" do? Any info on how it works?

4. What dose "Ignore this user" do?

5. How come sometimes my background color, ATS points, and that bar thing will not show up (usually when ATS is slow, mabey due to maintenence)? I need to know if it's only happening to me.

6. Whats with the code errors that pop up after I modify the my "settings" or upload a picture? (administartor, knows what I mean... mabey) Yet nothing happens, upload makes it through, and settings all work.

7. What are ways to earn ATS points? I post like crazy yet I don't get any. Are the Mods incharge of this system?

That's all I want to ask, sorry if I sound like a newbie, because I'm not really that web literate, you people seem to be. The #1 I want to know the most.

Okay thanks.

1: postcount, hold your mouse over it and the actual number apears.
2: when users get warnings from mods, they get that sign under their names. it uses a 3 strike your out system on banning people too. Warnings timeout after a while.
3: Voting for WATS means you vote to give the person points to recieve the Way Above Top Secret status at the end of the month.
4: Ignore user hides all posts posted by that user.
5: When the system goes in low bandwidth mode (because of heavy traffic) alot of the graphical features are severely toned down.
6: Dunno, submit error report.
7: Posting, applauses, news submissions and so on.

1) How many posts you have done. It changes colour depending on how many way above votes you have.

4) you can't see there posts.

5) Too many people on the site. They change it to low band-width, to save on their internet costs.

6) Nothing important, it still changes the profile.

7) Diffferent areas get different points. If you start a thread and get replys you get points, lots of ways.

---

Use the search function and you'll find answers to all of these.

That would be a graphical represenation of a member's number of post contributions. It "blushes" when staff applause are applied. And if it's anything like my garage full of "Camel Cash," once full you get a boat. But it's never really full, is it?


2. What is that little "warn" icon that pops up at certain users, what would happen if I click it.


A staff applied warning for a violation of the Terms & Conditions. I'll fill in links later unless someone beats me to it.) If you click it, it takes you to the post that earned the warn.


3. What is "Vote for RATS" do? Any info on how it works?


It's WATS (Way Above Top Secret), a member voted award for an excellent post. You may vote up to 3 times per month. A winner is announced monthly.


4. What dose "Ignore this user" do?


You will no longer see posts by that user.


5. How come sometimes my background color, ATS points, and that bar thing will not show up (usually when ATS is slow, mabey due to maintenence)? I need to know if it's only happening to me.


It's when ATS is experiencing high volumes actually. We enter low bandwidth mode. It's universal to all members.


6. Whats with the code errors that pop up after I modify the my "settings" or upload a picture? (administartor, knows what I mean... mabey) Yet nothing happens, upload makes it through, and settings all work.


A glitch.


7. What are ways to earn ATS points? I post like crazy yet I don't get any. Are the Mods incharge of this system?


Posting, news submissions, staff applause. You've pretty much got it. Just post.

No problem to ask.
Anything else?

Almost right.


The bar in the profile represents the members post count, the bar maxes out at 5000 posts. The bar starts out grey turning redder with every “applause” received from a staff member. The more staff “applauds” the redder the bar.

Oh and moderator bars are all orange.

Submit quality news reports. That usually gets you more points. Or I believe if you participate in a debate or research.

What does the WATS winner get in return? Is it a load of point or something like that?

Well as far as I know the WATs winner gets a medal in their mini-profile. But I think they get some points too.

The mods, etc, find someone that knows a lot about one/more areas and they become the FSME. From what I've heard it also involves some "tricks", if you get what I mean.

Ohhh, fair enough.

Applaud me or you shall feel my wrath! I thought you also got it for way above votes. lol

The bar is actually representative of the member's level of anger at trolls and general nincompoopery. The angrier you get, the redder it gets. The mods' bars are orange to represent how after having spent so much time on ATS, they have gotten so angry that they literally burst into flames.


BTW, if you're using Firefox browser, the post count won't show up in the tool tip that pops up when you hover your pointer over the bar. Right click the bar and select "Properties". The number next to "Alternate Text" in the dialogue box is the post count.

Hope this helps.

Oolala. Thank you, I was just trying to figure out why that didn't work. What's the deal with Firefox? My brother told me to get it because it was the best or something, but it has so many limitation and things that don't work, at least from what i've seen around the web.

Firefox isn't what it's cracked up to be. People use it primarialy to go on "sites" *wink* without getting spyware and spam. Thats all it's good for. It has too many problems and exploits that are starting to show up.

I would make a great expert subject matter at the space exploration section and the science disscusion section due to my vast knowlage of biochemistry, and general physics but I assume unless you "know" people to going to happen, but it's only a title so it dosn't concern me. For experts some people are pretty biased, thats why I think I would be more fitting.

Establish this over time with a consistent track record of knowledgeable and fact-oriented posts, and you won't need a title -- though one might eventually come your way.

By the time someone gets FSME, it's usually quite obvious why they did.
