yes I agree. I don't want to whine too much about it, but I'm sure the more open minded Americans (and I'd like to think that was many of the
Americans on ATS) can imagine how frustrating it might be if they were from a different country other than the USA, and then news from their country
was not seen as important. That's why I wanted to get the Europe word in there, because even if many of the amercian members on here were not
interested, we might grab some flags off european members to make sure the thread stays in a visible
place on the ATS home page. Honestly, I
wish it wasn't like this. Sometimes it seems that for many americans the word 'USA' is interchangeable for 'world'.
I hope this volcano ash cloud gets the attention it deserves on ATS (and reflects the big news that it is in all countries involved). Otherwise
european ATS members will be forced to go elsewhere to discuss this important event (they will have no choice because if there isn't a visible thread
on the ATS homepage, they will just assume it is not being discussed here.)

I understand your point, but let's be honest if this event was happening in the USA then it would be frontpage ATS, but because it's Iceland and by
extension the rest of Europe, nobody cares. Well by "nobody" I mean Americans.
I'm not American by the way.
