Aggression, abhorrence, confrontation, prejudice and general dislike towards the world and towards each other lately seem to be the order of the day
here on ATS. Which, let's face it, creates a pretty unpleasant atmosphere. It is expected of course, with some very emotional topics being discussed.
People are wound tight, which in turn puts a lot more pressure on the staff as well. And all of this snowballs to make visiting ATS more a task than
the fun factory (
) it's supposed to be.
But there is no reason why everything should be about crossing swords and being right all the time.
Be More Social
ATS has its very own Social Network
for example. You can post comments on people's
profiles, read more about them, befriend them, tag them and so on, by simply clicking on there name next to their posts. You may learn that you and
your archenemy have a lot more in common than you thought. More than a year ago when the Social Network was launched members spent hours creating
brilliant Tags, and tagging each other. It's been ages since I've last been tagged. And I must admit that it has been ages since I last created
Did you know we've got PODcasts on ATS? I kid you not. Do yourself a favour and go listen
to your favourite ATS member (or even your least favourite member
). It's always fun to find out that the member you've been calling
all this time is actually a lady in her 40's. And tell the people what you think of their PODcasts. Or better yet, make yourself heard.
You can earn yourself 2,500 points with the flick of a microphone. I know it can be embarrassing to listen to your own delirious mutter at first, but
take it from me, once you've done one, you'll do another... and another... and so on.
And don't miss out on the Raving Rabbit and Wacky Johnny on ATS Mix
. The place to take of your shoes (mind the smell) and hang loose. Brilliant
. Saucy recipes
Hints and cheats on the newest games
. What's happening on the
... And, and, and... You're missing out if you haven't seen it before. Then I
would like to mention the Member Art
section as well. Who knew the wise Masqua could
paint?! Think you are good at making Avatars?! I don't believe you. Show me!
Oh, and members
are people too.
Most people on the board have the ability to put two words together to form some sort of comprehensible sentence. You've got an excellent writer
waiting to put pen to paper (so to speak). Share it with everyone
and earn points while
you do it!
You may also be more "formal" in your writing. Tinwiki
are in desperate need of your
scholarly abilities! Muchos Points up for grabs!
There is a whole lot of fun in hidden places on ATS. The fun
may or may not be
creeping up on you. I don't know if this has anything to do with some sort of game. Actually I'm not even sure the
ATS competition was really done?
Be a happy shopper
is an excellent way to relax... You can ask any lady with a credit card.
Just be yourself
Just now and again, let your hair down, take off your wonderbra, put down your lightsabre, get that cape to the cleaners, pour yourself a tall one.
That's all I have to say.
