Hi everyone!
Gosh, what do I say? I'm not good at introducing myself, kinda shy. Not really good at talking about myself. But I have visited ATS in the past and found it to be amazing and huge! Lots of interesting topics to read about and discuss. The shear size of it has me a little intimidated though.

The reason I'm joining at this time is because a video of mine wound up on here and I just wanted to clear up a few things about it. I guess that will have to wait until I pay my newbie dues of 20 posts. I can't post on the video because it was closed so I guess that means I would have to begin a new thread to say what I wanted to say about it.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning the ins and outs of ATS without getting lost in what seems to be a maze of nooks and crannies. Thanks for having me!

Thank you! I am trying to figure out how this works. I hope I am replying to EvolEric. This site is really confusing to me. What do the 'flags' mean? Is that good or bad?

Its a lil confusing at first... but you will catch on!!

and you did it right!!!

Flags... are pretty much "Attention Grabbers"
I gave you one... so now under your name, you will have one...

its a good thing... you can flag threads that you see as important...

the more flags a thread gets... the higher it is on the lists...

threads you start, that accumulate flags... the flag count is show on your profile


Also... on the left under your name/picture is stats that look like this




P 672 F 140 S 850
W 8 K 21


P = Your number of Posts
F= Flags you have received
S = Stars you received
W= Your WATS (Way Above Top Secret) Ranking
K= Karma... based on your good behavior and meritable contributions

Welcome


A mod will stop by soon and let you know all the links you can check out to

familiarize yourself with the forums.

Can you tell us a bit about the video? I'm not sure if that's allowed here in the introductions forum, but it'll help you with the 20 posts until you can create a new thread about it. Maybe you could just tell us how people here reacted or how you found out.

Again, I don't know if it's allowed here in this section


Anyway, enjoy your stay.

SaveTheWolves, you might want to know that flags and stars can't be taken away, so think carefully before giving one of those

Thank you for the tips because I really need them at this point.


So flags on here are good? Okay because on YouTube they are bad. I found that out the hard way. It is so hard to write without the little texting thingies. I keep wanting to put the abbreviation for laughing out loud.

Well hopefully if I do something wrong on here the mods will cut me some slack since I am pretty much clueless about this site.

I found out my video wound up on here when I looked at the statistics. It showed a lot of views had come from ATS. So I clicked on it and saw my video. I was surprised and flattered.

Your welcome!!!
Everyone was new and starting out,
at one point or another!!


Yeah, on most sites flags are bad...
ATS doesnt have a "negative" alert system...
only a "positive" one...

We can alert mods to the negative actions of others...
but ATS doesnt display it for the world to see, as it were...

So if you earn a 1000 flags..

Smile!!!!

oh... I use lol, and lmao.... but thats about it... and I havent been punished yet
lol

The Fire Hose looks like it will really come in handy! I just bookmarked it. I don't think I ever would have found it on my own. Thanks again Eric!

Oh, I just noticed the other things you showed me for the stats under each person. There is a lot to learn on here! LOL I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.

I'm always glad to meet others who think the wolves should be saved. Some are almost completely extinct in the wild. The Mexican Grey Wolves or Lobos are nearly gone! There are less than 50 of them left in the world in the wild.

Thank you! I love your little fairy! I have to figure out how to make an avatar for here. I don't even know where to go for that.

I love animations so I just go do a google search on "animated gifs". You can also do a google search on avatars. There are some really awesome avatars some of the members have.

You give a star when you agree with what the person posted. It's easier that way, because sometimes you like what someone say and you can't add anything more, so the stars make it unnecessary to post stuff like "I agree".

Great idea! I will have to check that out! Where do I go on ATS to put them on my profile?
