You think you posted on thread and go back and look to see you haven't.

When you post a response to the wrong thread.

You go to bed early and come back the next morning to find a topic you were discussing now has 6 more pages from the people who can stay up longer then you.
Yes I know there are timezones but not that many.


You can tell what age group someone is by their political views. (yes you get more conservative the older you get)

YOur too tired or lazy to fabricate the long and informed post your capable of.

Simply put, you get confused. Confusing sites, confusing what people are talking about. And people think yoru nuts. (ok, no improv here, I already know what your thinking) which is my next point. YOu start to know what people are already going to say, because you have been there.

And the posters who are much older then me, still think I am still too young to start this thread.




Feel free to add!

Suffering from CRS (Can't remember [SNIP]) and missing your own 5 year anniversary of being an ATS member. :bnghd:

Thinking of a really good post, then forgetting how you were going to word it when you go to post. (CRS again).

Trying to think of reasons why you're still young. (I know I am
)

It's not you fault, I just haven't been around for a while. I do remember that we talked in the chat room, I was drunk, and we were laughing about some thing. That's how I make most of my friends. =P

LOL you guys.

I forgot one, you have to keep checking your post in a thread to remember what it was a bout, sometimes only after 10 minutes.

oh, and you have no idea who Flo Rida is and your horrified to find out they are on the top music charts.

Because all you listen to is npr.

My taste in music lodged about ten years plus behind my generation, so I know your pain.

How about accidentally calling your 2 yr anniversary early.
Or going to post in a thread you already posted in a year previously.

You brace yourself for parenting duty for school vacations, not for your kids, but for the influx of brats that come to ATS.

Mods, particularly feel their age at this time

You know your getting older on ats when...

You know what the timezones are and know when certain members frequent ATS.

It really get's bad when they don't appear and you wonder if they are alright.
Now that is sad............

- when you read a post over and over and still can't tell if it's flirting or an inside joke.

- when you think one negates the other

I don't think that is sad I think that is sweet. If somethign were to happen to someone we would never know. I have thought about the ATS buddy system.

And I have definetly done the, start a thread about something adn then realize you already did one of the same subject previously.

I have to leave this at full size for you to see, but look at the top of the taskbar. I have the times up there so I know what time someone is in when I am talking to them. I also know the different timezones of others, and the ones that fit into the same timezone as say Belgium. Like Hellmutt is in Denmark and that is the same.

And no, I am not stalking anyone at all.

You make the obligatory "ATS is not like it used to be" thread.

You no longer see mods as people to fear, but people to ridicule (In a loving way of course
.

You finally stop posting in threads you find dumb.

You know your getting old on ATS when you remember when there weren't stars and flags. And you "still "forget they have them.

When you get half way through a post, forget what it was originally about, and have to read back to figure it out..

Never happens to me, but I hear it is horrible..
