That's not going to happen, it'd just open up a whole can of worms where people would try and get everyone to vote about any mods descision. If you're really that worked up about it, send a complaint. Heck if you're that concerned about the points, I give permission for you to have 1000 of mine.

Not too sure what has happened but if a 500 post minimum is required then i would assume out of the thousands and thousands of threads within this site you should perhaps try and interact into several and before long that 500 number will seem as an obsolete number.

Hi ATS

A small suggestion for you:

You know how when you go into a new thread and you decide the OP has made a good thread so you Star, Flag and Subscribe to it?

How about a little "S-F-S" button at the top that does all three functions at once with one click?

the chat being gone is going to lead to an influx of useless posts.


and its going to lower the quality of discussions significantly. and it will also create an influx of alternate accounts.


mark my words.

The post-count limit for chat has been reduced to 100, with this new warning appearing when users enter Chat:


When you enter chat on AboveTopSecret.com you agree that a more strict and decisive interpretation of our Terms and Conditions will apply. Any activity within this chat service that is deemed to be abusive, insulting, demeaning, or otherwise casting aspersions on other members of ATS, in addition to the discussion of any topic defined as off-limits or the posting of links to sites focused on such topics, will result in an immediate account termination without warning or recourse.

Additionally, this is a chat facility offered for the the users of a site (ATS) that aspires to a higher-level of discourse and conversation than nearly all other such online venues. This is not IRC, AOL chat, or Chat Roulette. Juvenile habits from other such chat destinations seen here will result in the termination of your ability to use the chat, without warning or recourse.

Respect this site, respect this chat, and participate as you would in a room full of like-minded strangers in real life: manners, respect, and civility.

I hope this works out well. My suggestion is for all the chat regulars to moderate chat and when newer members are there and may not realize that some topics are not to be dissused in chat . Just let em know that some `personal practices ` are not open for discussion in ats chat and then , hopefully problem solved)

Just a suggestion about the WATS index: shouldn't flags count more than stars?

Currently, the formula seems to be:
WATS = flags * stars / 200,000

I'd suggest something like:
WATS = (flags * 10 + stars) / 100

Not sure what happened but my "quote", "reply" and edit functions seem to be working again.
I think some how it was tied up with the "chat issue". Because they stopped working with my 200th post. And now are working since the chat issue has been resolved.
But if anyone did help resolve the problem, I would like to thank who ever you are.
Thought my post were invisible as well as not being able to use the post sub-functions.

The formula is actually.

Flags * 5 * stars /1000000 = WATS rating.
If I'm not mistaken.

I deleted my avatar to change it - I embedded the link to the one I wanted - clicked submit and it didn't work. Thinking maybe I forgot a step I clicked on the Avatar Tutorial but got a page asking if I was 18 - tutorial not there. Could you post the current tutorial here please, thank you.

Just copy the URL (http....) located under the image and paste that into the Avatar section.
