I have a shortage of common sense but hi anyway.
I am new, obviously, I know there's a whole post 20 rule but I don't quite get it yet or I read it wrong. Anyway I tried replying to someone's post and a 404 thingy came up, not sure what I did wrong it must be that I have to say hello here first, or the persons' thread was deleted or something....

So If anyone can help me out here it would be much appreciated so I don't post in the wrong place.

I can do this again by saying hello properly lol

Hello and welcome Tofind151, it's nice to meet you.

To my knowledge, the 20 post rule is in place to ward off spammers. You will need at least 20 posts in any of the topic boards to create a thread of your own (in a forum other than introductions).

No, this is not the right place for an introduction.

Just messing. Welcome!!

I get the 404 from time to time, too. I can only guess that the thread was soooooooooo way absurd, or potentially "harmful". way out of line, too much BS, whatever, it never sees the light of day for ATS members.
I'd like to be able to read them, however. Just cuz.........

welcome tofind151

seems like u've been paying attention thus far
so u should not have a problem.

ATS is a place where we gather to seek the truth.
Sometimes we don't like it
but never the less
it is the truth
or as close as we can find
to the truth.

And remember, everything you read here
will NOT be the truth. But you will see
skeptics, debunkers and the like knocking
heads to get at the truth or turn a lie
on it's ear. And even some will be
considered true or not depending
on viewpoints, perspectives regardless
of facts. I urge you to use caution
before accepting anything posted here
as permanent fact.

Enjoy your ride and please place your
tray table in their upright positions
before we take off and please fasten your
safety belt as the ride gets bumpy
from time to time

I try. I've looked through this site for about two days and I couldn't resist coming along. I find that some topics you can get very easily drawn into so you need to do the whole mental examination thing once in a while, but in whole there is some very good threads. I am glad I found this site because people on self help sites were getting sick of me delivering them truth, and "salvation" LOL...... Instead they preferred indulging in talking about goldfish, alphabet games and suicide. So, although respect to them (maybe apart from the goldfish thing :wow
, I needed to find a place where I was more welcome.

I don't think the 'wow' feature really went according to plan....
Anyway I shall be snooping around thanks for the replies. I will make posts longer next time but I just need to find my feet. I don't know why features and me can't have a good relationship, like that smiley. oh well. back to more serious matters!

Welcome Tofind151 (151 rum
). Finding a 404 was just your first experience of a conspiracy here. Congratulations

Welcome to ATS

Isn't that 404 thing frustrating? It usually just means someone got really rude, too suggestive, or swore too much. Sometimes I have gone to answer a thread and it's been 404ed and I can't even figure out why

At least now you know it wasn't anything you did, and the 20 required posts adds up fast, just put your 2 cents in a few threads here and there......
