Robbie Williams’ Sightings Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

(Draft In Progress, Please Pardon Our Dust)

This FAQ is being assembled to serve as an aid for members interested in the thread:

Robbie Williams' Sightings - In HIS OWN WORDS

All members are welcome to post questions, answers, comments and corrections here to assist in building the FAQ list. Thanks in advance to everyone who assists with the development of this FAQ.

Robbie Williams On ATS

Who is Robbie Williams?

Robbie Williams is a highly popular and successful English singer-songwriter.
Wikipedia: Robbie Williams
Google: robbie+williams

Is Robbie Williams really on ATS?

Yes. His ATS member name is chrisonabike. His identity has been verified by a site administrator and he has provided photographic evidence. (source)

Should I send Robbie private messages via U2U?

No. (source) The site administrators have disabled U2Us to his account.

Has Robbie had problems posting on discussion boards?

Yes. (source) Please respect his rights as an ATS member and act accordingly.

Should I ask Robbie off-topic questions?

No. (source) Off-topic questions also violate the relevant content provisions of the Terms And Conditions Of Use and are subject to deletion.

But I really need to talk to him about something! What should I do?

As long as it's on-topic, you're welcome to discuss it with him in the relevant thread. Here are some other threads available for non-sighting-related Robbie Williams discussion:

BTS: "Robbie Williams' - Greetings, Thank you's, Questions, Comments, Requests...
BTS: Robbie Williams Music

Stalking or harassment of any ATS member (not just Robbie) is strictly prohibited and may result in immediate account termination, so please be considerate of Robbie's status as an ATSer. (source)

Should I read the thread before posting to it?

Yes. The thread is being cluttered by massive numbers of posts asking the same questions over and over. As a general courtesy to Robbie, fellow ATSers and all the guests reading the thread, please review the thread before posting. If you start a post with "I haven't read the thread, but..." it will probably be deleted.

Should I argue with the staff if my post is deleted?

No. We've made it clear enough what's going on. This would be a particularly bad time to harass the moderators, circumvent staff action or otherwise interfere with the operation of the site. (source)

Should I post insults directed at Robbie Williams?

No. While it is not unusual for members to express coarse opinions about public figures, including musicians, all ATSers must be treated with courtesy and respect. (source)

Is Robbie Williams receiving special treatment on ATS as a celebrity?

Yes. This is because he receives special treatment from other members as a celebrity and has also attracted a great deal of outside attention to ATS. As a consequence, it is necessary for the staff to take measures to minimize the kinds of problems which result. However, Robbie is expected to honor the T&C like anyone else, and I hope everyone will help him feel at home in our community.

Can I see just the posts made by Robbie?

Yes. You may click the "posts" button under any of his posts, access them on his profile page or click this convenient link: Robbie's posts.

Are any of Robbie's friends also on ATS?

Yes. The following members are friends of Robbie and witnesses to the sightings:
oldbigears (Danny)
mekanik81 (kx)

Was Robbie under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the sightings?

No. He has been sober for eight years. (source)

Robbie Williams, UFOs And Unusual Experiences

Has Robbie had any previous UFO encounters?

Has Robbie had any previous supernatural experiences?

Sighting: Sunset Strip

Where did it happen?

The yard of a hotel, facing the Sunset Strip (West Hollywood, California, USA) (source)

When did it happen?

About 11:30PM. (source)

What happened?

An object flew over at a height of about 200-300 feet. (source)

What did the object look like?

It was square or triangular, black with yellow stripes underneath. It made absolutely no noise whatsoever. (source)

The stripes were "chevronesque". (source)

Who saw it?

Robbie and a friend. Robbie had a hunch it was "one of ours". (source)

Sighting: San Fernando Valley

Where did it happen?

Robbie's house, San Fernando Valley, California, USA (source)

When did it happen?

Friday night about five months ago, from prior to 10:00PM to about 2:30AM, beginning while Robbie and some friends were playing a song called "Arizona" on the balcony. (source)

Update: November 2007. (source)

The Ball of Light

During the song, a big ball of light appeared over the San Fernando Valley, then disappeared when the song stopped. It reappeared when they resumed playing the song, and disappeared when they stopped. This happened four times. (source)

The Lightning Strike

While the band was observing this, an electrical storm came in and the balcony was struck by lightning. One of Robbie's friends saw the ball of light fly straight up and out of sight. (source)

The Black Beam

After the band came inside to the studio, everyone saw a black strip of light a few inches thick come through the studio door and go out through the opposing studio window, a distance of about 20 feet. (source)

The Searchlights

Then four white lights (like spotlights) appeared in the clouds, two in front of the house and two a few miles behind it. (source)

They moved in patterns that made the San Fernando Valley look like some sort of cosmic checkerboard and danced around a 40 mile radius. (source)

They may well have been searchlights, but the second wave (2-3:00AM) were very late at night for searchlights and haven't been seen since. (source)

Who saw it?

Robbie and friends. There were five people altogether. (source)

Solfeggio Frequencies

There has been much discussion in the thread about the possibility that solfeggio frequencies played during the song "Arizona" may have somehow been a causative factor in this event (first mentioned here).

However, it should be noted that "solfeggio" or "solfège" actually refers to the use of special names to teach standard musical scales: Wikipedia: Solfège. The common usage for the term does not necessarily imply specific frequencies.

There are some theories surrounding certain audio frequencies also referred to as "solfeggio" which suggest they may have special powers. (source)

Has Robbie spoken to anyone else who had seen the lights aside from the friends who were present?

(Obviously this is still very rough and incomplete, but if anyone has any frequently-asked questions or question/answer pairs to offer, please post them in this thread. Note that if you have a question that hasn't already been asked, by all means don't hesitate to ask it in the main thread, but please check the thread first (not just this FAQ) to make sure it's not a duplicate first.)

I will say one thing though,what is this thread in aid of? I'm not sure I get it. You're re-writing the faqs cos what?

Oh well,here's a bugbear of mine. Calling chrisonabike by his real name. None of us call eachother by our real names,as we have usernames for anonimaty. This should include all memebers,no matter what they do for a living. (unless they're real name is their user name,natch)

Still a bit confusedbythis thread,but hey,it's sunday,I've spent most of today in a state of confusion.

Right! What's All This Then?

Numerous members, including yourself, have expressed confusion regarding the thread and many have been asking the same questions over and over again.

The thread itself is becoming so bloated and obfuscated that many members are claiming not to have even read the thread before posting -- usually the same questions -- and making the thread even harder to follow.

The FAQ is an attempt to help mitigate the problem and keep everyone from going round and round. Better to move forward. It will also serve as a guide for mods so we'll know which redundant posts to delete and which contain new, unanswered questions.

It may also serve as a short list that Robbie and his friends can review for accuracy and corrections and a source for an "executive summary" of the pertinent facts surrounding the sightings.

As for using Robbie's real name, I can understand your irritation, but there's already so much confusion as it is, so I'm using his name to try to keep things from getting even more complicated.

I'm working on a basic framework now, and will soon be populating the FAQ information gleaned from the thread.

did chrisonabike got other contacts / sightings?

if so: where they different to the actual ones?

[edit on 18-5-2008 by orange-light]

do you think that the experience can be repeted when playing the song "arizona" again -maybe by creating the same atmosphere as it has been at the first sighting

[edit on 18-5-2008 by orange-light]

does chrisonabike think he might get a special attitude that makes him being more aware of such phenomenons?

Some people have usernames for annonymity, not all.

There are as you say those that actually use thier real name as thier username. Plus, i have often seen members calling each other by thier real names on here. I can think of 3 rather promenant ones straight away.

Whether it's liked or not, admitted or not, this place kind of grows on you like a family. It's members, grow on you....or a family too.

So you'll often hear people using real names in a post, it's not something awarded especially to chrisonabike. (makes a note to call my next kid that, would be well cool!)

reply to post by Majic

ok fair enough,maybe once all the questions are collected,these off topic posts can be removed or something.

um,yeah,carry on

posted on May, 18 2008 @ 02:34 PM
maybe chrisonabike or someone else can answer this question...
someone told me that i just have to call or better ask if i want that they appear..

i appreciate if anybody can answer me this question which is very important for me
thank you

A question that keeps getting asked over and over is whether Robbie was on drugs/alcohol, and it's already been answered that he was not. I don't particularly have time at the moment to search through the thread for the specific post(s), but I think that ought to be somewhere in the FAQ.

Edit: Sorry. Having spelling issues today.

thanks guys...its very clear and good to follow now!

I actually feel sorry for crisonabike now, i posted a thread about his radio documentary and when it was airing, i was asked by springer to be careful and we where, very respectful, talked about the contents rather than the man himself, now it seems his little documentary is spiraling out of control, hes gonna be driven out by silly people, this thread is a good idea i think, he needs the stress taking off him some IMO.

This is one of the reasons people keep their sightings quiet now, simply because of the million questions, both interested and just there to have a swipe at their reputation, its great crisonabike is here as a member, and i bet everything i own he wishes he could just browse and share other peoples experiences, simply to just understand his own, Im sure the staff are looking after him well, and my opinion usually stands for nothing outside where i live, however maybe he needs a backdoor (new start) when he has had enough, i respect what he has done so much, he has an edge over most i think, being that he is used to the attention, just how much can any man take?

Good on YA crisonabike.

Majic-Thanks for posting this. Perhaps you can keep adding to it as multiple accounts of the same questions continue. Maybe this should be made a sticky for a while? haha

what does Byrd think about Robbie Williams?

posted on May, 19 2008 @ 12:10 PM
reply to post by Isaac Tanner Madsen

Yes, i asked him if him or his friends were drunk or on others drugs effect and his answer was

I have'nt had a drink for 8 years and i can assure you no hallucinogens were harmed during this process....

And this is in the faq, maybe they should put a link to this reply(page20)

reply to post by azzllin

I assure you he's not stressing over people asking him logical questions azzlin... He's enjoying the back and forth, he doesn't have to "do" anything to go back to just browsing, why would you think he did?

Nobody can "stalk him here" if he replies to someone else's thread he's just another member and will be treated as one.

You are worrying WAY TOO MUCH my friend, this aint no big dealio.


posted on May, 19 2008 @ 01:20 PM
I think it is sound that chrisonabike is here, purely because it shows that for all he has in terms of stature and wealth he is just another normal lad.

I will read his posts just like I read everyone else's posts, afterall ATS is not just a community but more like family, we have good members, bad members and some like irritating siblings.

I know this bit is off topic but chrisonabike I was sad to see Vale get relegated, as a Staffordshire lad I like to see all the local clubs doing well.

I was contemplating starting a thread like this called:

"Robbie Williams' - Greetings, Thank yous, Questions, Comments, Requests, Hate Mail, Begging Letters, etc, etc...

I, felt we needed it what with the backlash of, off topic questions in the original thread.

But alas I didn't, so I guess here is the place for such postings.

Welcome Rob'...Id personally like thank you for bringing this fantastic site deeper into the Main Stream Media conscience, and therefore to more of the masses. deserve an applause from every Mod at least IMO.

And a question if I may: What's big red and eats rocks?

reply to post by ufopunx

Yeah. It wasn't in there when I posted, which is why I mentioned it. A link would probably be useful. His response to you was the one I was thinking of. Thanks!

reply to post by Wolfie_UK

Hi wolfie, this event re Robbie is very interesting, especially the lights which I see quite frequently in Staffordshire Peaks. Do you think that his contact during song is similar to church goers song? The ufo/god likes chant and song, a musical lover maybe?
