Hello to everyone that reads this! I've been lurking on here for about a year now, after reading Jim Mar's Above Top Secret book. I also have been following the site via Facebook, and figured it was about time to join!

As far as my relevent interests go, they consist primarily of 9/11 conspiracy theories, UFOs and ET's, Ancient Astronaut theories, and Paranormal Phenomena. I have actually seen several UFOs (I may start a thread about them) and have had some experience with Shadow People.

Outside of all of that stuff, I am an electronic musician(think techno with keyboards and drum machines) and I also partake in art projects every now and then. I'm also a bit of a reader, and my current favorite author is William Gibson. As far as my profession goes, I work for a small home remodeling business.

Well, I hope that sums me up well enough, and I look forward to some replies!

I live in a town very close to Atlanta, GA. It's pretty much the last bit of civilization before you enter the mountains in the north of the state.

It is good to see more people waking up and getting involved in the problems that are going on. They aren't easy ones but we can get through them if we all pull together to responsibly work through it. You have come to a good place and hopefully see you around on the threads, take care.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm glad to be here, where I can finally talk about these kinds of things. It seems like you folks are a pretty interesting and intelligent bunch and I'm glad to be a part of this site!

I am having some trouble uploading an avatar, and it's honestly been pretty frustrating. I read in the new members thread that you can't upload an image at this point in time. I tried to use photobucket instead, but that doesn't seem like it's working. If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. I hate being without an avatar on a forum, and it's kind of driving me nuts!

You will have to wait until you have made 20 posts first. After then you can start new threads and will be able to upload photos and other stuff.

Oh ok, I understand now. I thought perhaps that was the case with avatars, though I wasn't really sure.

Thanks for the help!

I'm still not able to set an image in my media files as my avatar. I keep selecting an image, and it tells me it has been set as my avatar, yet it does not show up next to my posts. What am I doing wrong? I'm used phb forums where this process is much easier...

Now it won't show my name! What the hell is going on here?

go back to your media storage and click on the picture, after you have done that you will see 3 url addresses below the image, highlight and copy the one that says use for ATS avatar. Now you can click the link to use as ATS avatar, or go to you settings page and paste the avatar url and submit.
