Just wanted to make myself known here, as I just registered today. I also have a couple of questions to anyone who will endulge me a bit. First, what the hell is a BLOG, and second, what's up with the ATS points? I assume you get one point for every post (am I wrong?) but for what? What purpose do the points serve?

Welcome,

BLOG is short for Web Log, similar to a traditional diary.

A Blog is a weblog. You get points for posting in most forums, minus those on BTS. SkepticOverlord made a post about that. here:

When you have enough points you can buy things from the ATS store.

so it's just an "online diary" for your personmal use? Does it serve some site-related function?

No, not necessarily. You can write about pretty much anything in it.

Blogs, btw, are not just unique to this site, but rather a common internet term. During the recent wars in the middle east, thier citizens' blogs (on various websites) provided a unique perspective from their eyes of what was happening, minus journalistic "editing" and "skewing"... I'd highly recommend searching for blogs by afghanistan and iraqi nationals during these times, just as a counterpoint....and illustration...
