Mods, please move if deemed appropriate.
A very interesting year indeed!
I don't post much, and I've only made a few friends here but ATS remains my favorite website, and still the one I begin the day with, and check before
I call it a night.
With the new year upon us, today I was thinking back and in my opinion, we have had a lot of good threads, website improvements and lively
discussions. Below, just for the heck of it, I'd like to recap some of my favorite moments from this year, with a brief explanation of why. They are
in no particular order, just going along as I remember them.
1. ATS 2010 coming on-line. Love it or hate it, it was a somewhat big departure from a lot of people were used to. Me personally, I loved it,
especially the merging or ATS and BTS, and all the ensuing changes to WATS, the mystery "k"' and flag contribution levels.
2. Nuclear False Flag Alert!! It's ON In 3 Days!
One of the numerous prediction
threads of the year, but this one went big time. Quite a few new members were around for this and got their first helping of doom and gloom, as much
as i dislike these types of threads, I honestly hope that when it's all said and done, people learn their lesson.
3. All Roads Lead to Rome
A shining example of how to research and present conspiracy
theories. And wow! What a thought provoking OP. Hats off to ProtoplasmicTraveler for this one.
4. Twitter ablaze with UFO sighting reports in NYC. Anyone confirm?
plug of my own thread...but for a minute there I along with quite a few others, really thought something of importance was happening. However, some
unpleasantries in this tread and subsequent UFO & Alien threads lead to...
5. Civility, decorum and the Aliens and UFO Forum / ENOUGH! YouTube Videos in the A/UFO Forum and those who hate them.
. Two great examples of why we are lucky to have " the best staff on the
6. Everything wikileaks. Great job on the membership in analysis and reporting.
7. Mysterious Missile Launch Over California - 11/8/2010
and the RATS thread that went
along with it. Again, what a wild ride initially.
8. The memberships long running and continued " epic threads", such as Whats going on at
and Quake Watch 2010
. Just goes to prove how dedicated our members
9. Jkrog08. The first person I had the pleasure of holding U2U discussions with...you're still missed. And let's not forget WOS...
10. The advances with ATS media...ATS comics, Conspiracy Chicks, ATS StreetView, ATS live, impending Apps etc...keep up the good work!
11. A superb example of "Deny Ignorance" can be found here :Alleged NASA -Affiliated
Astronomer Deciphers 'Intelligence' Signal From Nearby Stars
. I applaud our members efforts in particular thread.
12. Obama's trip to India and all of its related threads. Kinda like Number 2. Lots of hype, scenarios and a lack of fact checking lead to a lot of
doom and gloom.
These are just some of my favorites and believe me fellow members, you all contributed some GREAT, thought provoking stuff, and I thank you all for
helping me exercise my mind.
So what about you? What are some of your favorite / significant ATS 2010 memories? I look forward to reading them.
Here's to you ATS...may you be here for many more years!!
Oops...2012 is right around the corner...
