I believe there should be some type of message that members can recieve about there work,
that is a problem that is just not helpful for any organization,
but on the other hand a more serious thing of mine is the encouragment and help
is stated by the staff, there is a wrong way and a right way,
I just would like to know what I can do to make my posts better

I'd like something like this because I've posted many times on things that *I* thought were interesting, and thought that I put together a pretty good post, and got nothing in response. Not even any replies. I'd like to know why, so I think something saying what is good and bad about it would be great.
I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed,
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

You shouldn't be doing anything to make your posts 'better', just keep openly and honestly participating in the variety of discussions that you have been. The last thing that should be on anyone's mind when typing out a post is 'is this going to advance ATS as a whole". The only way to 'advance ATS" is for people to honestly and openly participate. It is, after all, a discussion board, it exists as merely a frame-work on which to place discussions.
I'm not saying that people are wasting their time putting effort into their posts, or in striving to make quality posts, but it shouldn't be for anything other than their own satisfaction. THe person that will notice will be the people that they are having the discussion with, thats whats important.
