Hi Animal, welcome.

Duplication is a no no here.


Hope you enjoy the site.


p.s.

Your avatar is great, bit too big, but I am sure someone will help you there.

Oh yeah, after about 2 years here I found this Firefox plugin that fixes that problem for me, only to lose it in the last silly update.
So now, after typing a 6000 character post, I can lose it to some silly mistake. You would have think I'd have learnt to at least type long posts in Notepad or somethin, but nope.

Welcome to ATS. We're glad you're here, and hope to hear a lot of your thoughts.

I don't think it's as much being picky as it is that this is a really big place. If you post a thread with the same name as another, then there is confusion. And computers hate confusion.


I guess you have noticed that your avatar bit the dust. It was too large, I'm sure. Now this isn't being picky either, or a conspiracy to rid the world of Sesame Street characters. As I understand it, it has to do with band width usage, since this is such a large site.

You might want to take a peek at the T&C and the FAQ.

But you'll get the hang of this place shortly. And we are all looking forward to the new ideas you'll be throwing in the old stew pot.

Yeah, that's a bug that NEVER got fixed. We've all learnt to live with it. Some people write out their posts in Notepad, others press 'Ctrl + A' (Select All) followed by 'Ctrl + C' (Copy) just before they hit the post reply button. Others go to BTS (BelowTopSecret) and vent their frustrations in the Rant forum... everyone deals with it in their own way


Oh yeah, welcome to ATS, you Animal!

Don't tell me your thread title actually was, I am Sam, I am new. That'll be pretty hilarious!

Just like Beachcoma said, I consider that a bug too.

Just testing out this addon, jazzyguy. Ta for pointing it out.

Yeah, it's 3:53am here in Australia. This is the first time in about 6 months I've had nothing on the next day, so why not stay up all night. It's about noon in the U.S., so response times will be pretty good about now. When I'm normally on it's 3am in America, so no one replies for ages.
I think about 80% of ATS readership is from the US. Boo

I hear you, man. I live on the opposite side of the globe as well. Makes you wish there was a post-dated reply function

That was great. I'm a muppet fan anyway.

Maybe you could use animation in your avatar to show the drumming? I think that would be nice.

And I'm glad you're finding things so fast.
