Comment on what ATS members said ("Phage killed another thread today... with this comment he made that got many stars...") LOL
I agree with you and Springer, I think it makes the most sense to ask them to be exactly who they are, and not anyone else! Genuine ATS members communicating a genuine ATS spin is much better than anything scripted or trying to imitate someone else.

I don't think anyone on ATS could have put it better...
Well said.. and well needed.
Not all of us know.(well, I don't).
These 'chicks' (or signets as I prefer, for we all know what signets grow up to be)

This is currently being discussed. It appears a lot of the suggestions in this thread are split rather evenly. About half are saying focus more on member content and highlights. The other end of the spectrum is saying don't just review what members have already presented- be fresh.
Obviously, satisfying one group is going to leave the other unsatisfied as they are polar opposite suggestions. We can either highlight the top information on ATS and be met with 'rehash' accusations or we can attempt to bring fresh content only and be met with 'what about the members?' Which if we do, we're then met with 'Don't just read the threads to us- we already know what the members posted!' And the cycle continues.
So we're reviewing ways we can mix it up between 'fresh research' and 'member highlights' in an effort to please as many as possible even if we know we'll never be able to please everyone and are not going to exhaust ourselves trying.
