Gday there Tom!

ATS is an awesome place, just a bit confusing at first, I suppose . . .

Anyway, first off, you might want to check out this thread: Posting Hints & Tips for ALL Members. I promise it will help a lot.

Also, 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, Space Exploration, 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.

I hope this helped, and if you want could you please reply to my Posting Hints and Tips thread?
Looking foward to seeing you around the boards, Justhuman

Don't listen to anyone persons opinion and have it alter your views on ANYTHING!!!

There are some incredibly insanely biased people here that will try and pull you to their side!

Of course there are plenty of lovely people like say.... ME!!

Go Asala! Way to be informitive and try to get the new guys to join your SIDE... I know your plans..

If it hasn't already been mentined, you will need 20 posts before you can U2U (private message) with regular members.
But, you can always U2U with staff

Feel free to contact me or another moderator for help/questions.

Hi there Tom! You will learn a lot at the great ATS, most of all you will learn to hopefully become a critical thinker. I have been corrected many times, and also have had my weaknesses exposed many times. This is a place to grow and participate in a unique cultural experience.

The best thing you can do for yourself is learn not to argue but try instead to debate. Never let someone on the Internet get you angry, it happens easier than you think. Most of all dont try and get romantic with your fellow members. Unless of course they want you too!

Have fun, LGM
