It may be just me but I've been noticing heaps of threads lately that go a little something like this:
Just a quick question, have you heard anything about this place in the Arctic?
It's supposed to be like an alien base or something. Buried in the snow.
A friend of mine told me about it and I wondered if anybody knows about it?
If you could post a few links or something that would be awesome
Now don't get me wrong, ATS is IMO a place we we come to learn, enrich our knowledge about a myriad of wonderful topics and get the opinions of
others, as well as express our own. But shouldn't we strive to do better than the fictitious example above.
I know, not everyone has the know-how to make a master thread, and I'm not trying to discourage people from giving it a go, but surely the way to do
it is to research the topic yourself and then write a thread displaying all the info that you yourself would want to know?
There's a new page ATS activity from the beginning
that has some damn amazing threads on it. A
lot of hard work and time has gone into some of them. Granted there are some glaring exceptions to this but that's usually because they are ongoing
like What's going on at Yellowstone?
Maybe it's just me like I said, but I think if you have gone out of your way to ask a question, maybe you could go a little further and research it
yourself and post it?
If you don't know how (posting pics, videos, quotes etc), I'll gladly help as I'm sure any member who's done a thread or two will, just U2U
All the best ATS, Kiwi
