I'm sure this may have been answered already but I get a little frustrated trying to find things using the boolean search engine we have here.

Any road up......why oh why do so many ATSers neglect to fill in there locations?

How am I mean't to jump to conclusions and stereotype people if they don't give me the information I require.....


I mean.....would it not be cool if we could get a demographic of our users?

I can think of many good reasons, but the main one is..... I love stats.

because we are paranoid nutters , hudled in the dark , in secret bunkers -- wearing tinfoil hats and clutching unrealistically large weapons " for our protection "

stereotyping my ass ....

i believe you are really a pawn of the evil gubermint , sent here to harvest names and locations for the " red list / blue list " snatch squads ??

It has been done once before, but may be a bit outdated now

The AboveTopSecret.com Membership Demographic Profile

unfortunatly the link to the actual results of the 2004 survey no longer seems to be working, but the thread makes for interesting reading.

Cheers for the link Pantha, it is a bit out of date and although a relatively informative read I would really like to see a graphical representation. I was thinking more along the timeline of ATSs existence, which would show amongst numerous other things how, globally, when ATSers joined and what major events drew them here, if any.

Well done ignorant ape, I already know we are paranoid nutters, I just want to know how we are dispersed across the planet and when and why we came to ATS.

Surely we're not too stupid to believe we can't be traced by the powers that be based on our web activity?

Whats the big deal with telling us what city, country, town or cave you might live in?

That, and if someone at work finds out your on here. It can cause problems, so it's just easiest to leave it blank, and fill in something funny instead, or just plain old sick into the blank. I just like mine blank anyways.

Well, there's of course also the ATS Frappr map which has a few hundred ATSers mapped:

Your town would suffice, no need for your desk location and building name.....


Cheers Count thats quite cool, maybe it should be promoted a bit more on this site or in the sign up procedure.

I know.......

I bet the all seeing SkepticOverlord couldn't create something along the lines of what I would like.

Aw what the heck. The Town of Guri (or Glie, if you prefer), and I'll even throw in the building: Old Home.

Shirley I jest. ^

Some members are more liberal about sharing personal information on the Internet than others, but I think it's a good idea to err on the side of caution.

After all, some ATSers live in countries where expressing controversial opinions can lead to persecution, such as the United States.


And let's not forget that the Internet is worldwide. That means anyone can access it.

Even Osama bin Laden -- or George W. Bush!


You never know.

Is this exact enough for you?

The building is actually a bakery, I rented their "janitor's apartment" a while back. Nice enough to live in, and no neighbours who'd complain about our dogs barking.

I'm not sure, the link keeps opening up a KML file.

It's a Google Earth placemark, so you need to have Google Earth installed to see what it's about.
You can download Google Earth from earth.google.com
