I am not used to the software protocols on this board and I can't seem to find a tutorial. So I have a few questions I need answered so I can continue to be a productive member of ATS.

1 - I know what the P, F, and S along the left side of my posts stand for but the W and K elude me.

2 - In my profile I see a stat for ATS points. What does this stand for and how are the points awarded or deducted?

3 - Is there a tutorial anywhere on the site for using the external link tags? I have been an administrator on a site using UBB software and understand it quite well. But things on this site are enough different that a tutorial would be helpful.

The W is for "Way Above Top Secret" or something like that. I forget what exactly that is though. Here is what the Way Above Top Secret page says about itself:


A hall of fame of the top-50 highest-flagged and often-starred contributing members on AboveTopSecret.com, displayed with a link their most-recently authored topic.


The K is for Karma. It's, as I remember, a ratio of posts to stars.


2 - In my profile I see a stat for ATS points. What does this stand for and how are the points awarded or deducted?

You get points from posting, stars, applauses, and thread flags. They're deducted when you use them at the ATS store (where you can change your avatar and so forth) or you get a warning.


3 - Is there a tutorial anywhere on the site for using the external link tags? I have been an administrator on a site using UBB software and understand it quite well. But things on this site are enough different that a tutorial would be helpful.

When you say exterjal link tags, do you mean this: [ ex]text here[/ ex] ? You would just use that if you're quoting something that isn't on ATS.

I hope that that helps you some!
