Not that points matter to me (seriously they don't) but for some reason I can not see them under my picture (or any other's). I also don't see signatures or the option way above/ignore? Where is the problem? Is it on my machine?

edited: I just saw that the site is being redesigned, so that must be the reason...Btw, good lluck with the new look

We are on low bandwidth at the moment, So points and Sigs are not visable at the moment,


Its only for a short time and then things will be back to normal.

ATS is on Low-Bandwidth mode at the moment.
That is why you do not see the points. Once the number of visitors etc goes down, I am sure that the admins will go back to normal. Don't worry, you are still getting your points, you just don't have the fancy bar

I got some questions:
1.On BTS there's a "interesting websites" forum,so i wondered if it's for anything that's not conspiracy related only.Can we put conspiracy related websites on there as well?

2.Also I noticed members can put smileys in their u2u messages.How do you do that?

Sure. It's for ALL interesting web sites. Some might have great graphics, photos, excellent code, good jokes, interesting conspiracy stuff...whatever.


2.Also I noticed members can put smileys in their u2u messages.How do you do that?


Just by typing the code. When you click a smiley in a post, it enters a : and a P for example to make
. Once you learn them, you can put them into u2u's by just typing.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I'll take a stab at it for you.

Admin - 5 Males
Super Mods - 5 Females & 9 Males
Mods - 2 Female & 24 Males

Alien, for Super Mods, I am not sure of. But I've grouped as a Male. For the Mods, I'm not sure about pineappleupsidedown, but I've grouped as a female.

The only thing wrong with the bb code, is that you cannot use apostrophes within the bb code tags. Example:

This isn't going to show up red If you need to use a word such as "is'nt", use "is not" instead, or just "isnt"

This will be red

Any particular problem you are having with the bb code?? Or does this solve the problem?

It solved the problem

People might notice me as the one abusing the bbcode so many times and the person who uses more colors than others!

How can you earn points, I haven't been on ATS for a bit (actually for a really long time) and I just found out that you don't earn points for tagging.

I just made this because a lot of people have been asking these questions latley and it might help them out.



Q. Why am I logged out when I click the Site Home button/link to ATS?


A. You are not logged out. The Site Home button or the Link to ATS is taking you to the homepage where the most flagged/popular/staff picked threads are shown. Once you click any button, like the Board Home button, or the Recent Post button it will show you as logged in.



Q. Why do I have negative ATS/BTS/PTS points?


A. There are a few ways this can happen.


1) You have received a warning which took away more points then you had.

or the more common one.

2) You bought something from the ATS Store and bought it using Combined Points, which means it takes an equal amount of points from your ATS, BTS, and PTS point totals.

ex. You have 30 ATS points 10 BTS and 10 PTS.

You buy something for 45 points using combined points and it takes away 15 points from each, leaving you with 15 ATS, -5 BTS and -5 PTS points.



Q. What happened to the Views Column?


A. From the Admin himself...


Originally posted by SkepticOverlord

In reality, the "views" tracking is indeed an item that is a "luxury" and was beginning to introduce some problems.

As most people who work with high-volume technology are aware, simple database writes can often take up to four times the processor cycles as read queries, even read queries that touch on more data than a simple one-column update write... such as incrementing the view counter for a thread.

I ran a test by removing the view increment for guests, and db server load immediately decreased... so now it's implemented across all sites and we're no longer tracking views. You may notice other very large boards have adopted a similar approach.

The issue of incrementing a view-tally on every page load is not an issue on small-traffic and/or small-size sites. But as our threads table continues to grow in size with more than 262,000 topics, it has become an increasingly processor-heavy operation to open the large table, read the current views, write the views+1, then close the large table each time a thread is viewed. Now consider that our threads are getting close to 200,000 views a day, and you start to see our problem.

So, now that we're not incrementing a view-counter, views are no longer shown.




Thats all the Q and A's I could think of right now.

I have a question about one of the rules. I just want to get clarification now so that I can be sure that I don't break the rule and I like to be careful. The rules say that I have to be a contributing member for at least sixty days before I am allowed to advertise my personal site. I want to know exactly what advertise means in this context. Obviously I don't intend to spam around my url.

But I have linked to it from my profile and mentioned it in my intro post.

This advertise does that just mean not linking to it in my signature until I've been a contributing member for that long?

My site is conspiracy related, among other topics that are relevant to this board.
