Can someone tell me how I would link another ATS user into a post? So I can give credits to the author of a continued collaborative story who is unable to post in the Collaborative writing section due to not having writer status?

Go to their member profile page and copy the URL from the address bar.

Then paste it into the web link popup like you would any other web address.

You can also write their member name into the first text box too.

Like this:

Another option is to get them "Writer" status.

Have you tried the one I posted some posts after the one I am quoting?

Adding the "wmode" parameter with a value of "opaque" worked on my test and is only 14 characters long.

Hi guys, sorry to bug you but ...

Can someone please fix this thread title for us:

It's messing up all the thread pages.

I edited the thread title for the member minutes after they posted the thread since the long link in the title caught my eye, too. They must have still been editing because my mod edit no longer shows. However, they went back and fixed it again.

Is it still messing up your page for you?

Yep, not on the recent posts page any more but only on any ATS thread page. It's too long without spaces so it is squeezing everything to the left of the page.

Edit: Hurray! Thanks.

How does a member gets writer status? I once tried to comment in a collaborative writing thread, but got that notice that I don't have the right to post in that forum.

Rumor has it there is an elaborate, even dangerous initiation ceremony that few complete successfully.

Thus if you wish to claim the exalted title of Writer, I recommend years of diligent study under a legendary master of word-jitsu.

Or you could just ask.

And on that note, lo and behold, it seems the fates have smiled upon thee, O Writer!

Have fun, be sure to respect the rules of the forum, and break a leg.

Quick question....

How do I send a comment to all people on my friends list at once? Is this even possible? No huge deal, just wondering for future reference.

I searched to see if somebody has brought it up but so far nothing. If you notice on the top right in the Media Home section I cant get access the My Account option thanks to the cool looking animation

I have that issue too. I have not thought much of it as I rarely check out the media center except to upload the occasional picture.

Anyway, for what it is worth, I am running Mozzila fire fox 3.5.1 on Vista...How about you?

Hmmm, I wish I could offer more help. I really am not a tech savvy person. Everything that I know of to suggest it seems you have already tried to no avail.

The only other thing I can think of is to perhaps try uninstalling and then reinstalling fire fox. They did just do an update recently, Maybe something did not go quite right in the update? I don't know.

I don't think it can hurt to try that, at the very least you will be back where you are right now....

For what it is worth I really hope you get this issue fixed and I am sorry I don't have more to tell you...

I truly and honestly do not believe in any attempt to purposefully block you from getting your U2U's.

on a side note,

I do want to urge EVERYBODY to take a breather for a few. It seems that we have numerous people beginning to get a bit...frustrated... with each other. Let's all calm down. If any of us feel they can not be nice, than please step away from the computer for half an hour or so and get some fresh air, then return.

As the saying goes, cooler heads will prevail. We are ALL members and we can work this out like the great community we are as long as each of us stays cool.

Peace and love!

How does one define breaking, ie, breaking news?

If we were to see an event happen, an event related to previous discussions on ATS... a documented event... would it not stand to reason that the event would be breaking news? Or do we have to wait so that other news medias can cover the event? By time we post the "breaking news" on ATS, it isn't "breaking news" anymore!

Case in point... I started a thread in the Breaking News forum, reporting how an event has escalated to the point where, well... property damage, infringement of the Bill of Rights, and theft was apparently not enough. I posted a thread mere moments after I had witnessed an activity where the event was brought beyond the next level.

It was breaking news.

But now? It is gone, moved to the trashbin because I did not link a source, because I did not include a snippet of the story.

How is this justifiable?

Breaking news is news that is occurring at that moment... not about an event that happened within a 36 hour time frame.

So please, on this, the ATS Issue Thread... if someone could explain this in a manner that makes sense, that justifies the removal of a breaking news event, I would be much obliged.

Instructions for the Breaking News Forums - Updated May 1/09

In the event you don't have a source, you can start a thread in another forum. However, in your case, you could've simply added to one of the other threads that you have started on the same subject.

Just like all the new breaking Obama birth certificate news items (or related)... gotcha.

But I shall abide for now, least I dig a deeper hole.

Just wondering what's happened to the post April traffic summaries on the stats page. Perhaps a hefty drop in visits coinciding with the decline of swine flu hysteria? Does ATS do conspiracies?

reply to post by pause4thought

Judging by the other months, April was a very active month (the second most active), the only problem with April was that March was even better.

Thanks for the chart. However I'm referring to POST April statistics. It's very slow in coming.
