Hey guys, I'm an aerospace engineering student at Purdue University. I saw a topic on the forum and felt I had to bring some sense to it as only an engineer can
. Thus here I am. I'm studing aerodynamics and jet propulsion as well as doing a large amount of dynamics work. The dynamics work focuses around orbital mechanics. I have actually been doing rocket science this summer, orbital mechanics not designing the rocket. I'm going try to help with scientific commentary whenever possible. Other than that, I dunno.

Welcome aboard! If you get an urge to wander into the Liberal Arts arena from time to time, check out the Social Issues forum. You'll find a link in my signature.

Welcome to ATS, Lord of Bunnies. Skills like yours are always very much appreciated on a board like this.

Space Exploration is the place you'd probably want to head. Everything spacey goes on there.

But anyway, don't just focus on one forum. There are many many mroe, all of which can serve to open your eyes to some amazing things.

Here's my little guide on how to get 'round the place. Count yourself lucky mate. In my day, the forums didn't even have titles! We just had to guess the topic-header and hope we were posting into the right one!!!

But as I was saying . . . first off, you want to go to the ATS help files. Just about everything you would ever want to know is here: ATS Help Files. Have a look at everything there. Start with clicking the Quick Guide up the top.

The AboveTopSecret main page has most of the stuff you would probably want to read, there being around 50 forums on about anything you'd ever want to discuss, such as 9/11 & 7/7 Conspiracies, Aliens & UFOs, Secret Societies, Weaponry, and even Mythical Beasts.

In addition, BelowTopSecret has a lot of stuff as well, such as the Dreams & Personal Predictions thread, as well as discussions on Movies, Music, Literature, and Computer Help. It is used for the more off topic stuff.

The other one, Politics@ATS, is a place to discuss politics (as political discussions are not allowed on ATS because they usually become heated).


On the main ATS page, there are a number of features you can use to help with browsing around the site, like the New Posts button, which lists all recent posts on the board, or the myATS page, which shows you all the recent threads you have posted in, as well as a snapshot view of any forums you are interested in. If you want to add or change these subscribed forums, click the circled button:

Click Image to Expand:

The list down the side is all my subscribed threads. It shows who last posted as well.

If you want advice or are confused about something, feel free to post in the Board Questions & Business thread, email me at this address, or send a User2User message to one of the moderators from your Member Centre page. To see a list of all the mods, go to the ATS mainpage and scroll down. Towards the bottom and to the left there is a list titled ' Staff'. You can send a U2U to anyone listed there even if you do not have the mandatory 20 posts.

This here is a great post explaining how to get the little image under your name on ATS as well (be warned, the graphics need an update!).

I hope this helps you zip around the forums a bit quicker. And believe me, that New Posts button is great!

Looking forward to seeing your posts around the joint, LordOfBunnies
Sounds like I'm just about guaranteed to learn something from them.
