For threads in the wrong category, you have to ask a mod to move it since they are the only ones with that power aside from supermods and the site owners. They usually catch it and move threads to the appropriate place when they see them, but sometimes threads slip through.

To put something in your signature go to Member Tools on the tool bar, and click ATS account settings. There is a box there to change your signature, just don't forget to click submit.

I'm not sure what you mean about not having permission to post a thread. Try typing posts out in word or notepad so they don't get lost if something goes wrong while posting.

To save youtube videos, I use The instructions are pretty straight forward and it's free.

Hope all this helps!

There was talk a while back that to start a new thread you would need to have a certain amount of posts(200 i think), just to stop all the hit a run trolling around. Im not sure if its for all threads or even if its the case, but i remember coming across that

Which thread do you need moved? Provide a link and I'll move it or get another mod to do it if it needs to be moved.

As far not being able to post a thread, you may have inadvertently tried to start one in a forum you need permission to access, such as the Debate forum, the Research forum or the Collaborative Writing forum.

An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.
