Hi there! My name is Kostas and I have recently been looking around the site and more than often a few topics have really caught my eye and I have been dying to comment but remembering I am not registered was a real pain! Any how I am now registered and I'd love to get involved!

Why am I here?
To get involved in deep conversations and gain other people's perspectives on current affairs.

So that's all for now (keeping this brief - It's all a little formal isn't it!) and if you'd like to know anything.. give me a shout!


P.S - Any etiquette that I should be following?

Thank you! It's weird because I have been a viewer for a while it's like I have entered the circle but I am very much on the edge of the circle just peering in ha ha

Welcome, I hope you have just as much fun here as I do. I do have a question though, what on earth is 'F'anks!

posted on Aug, 25 2011 @ 06:41 PM
'Fanks' Hmmmm.. OK say this out aloud 'THANKS' but say it with a F instead of the TH and it's 'FANKS'.. It really is nothing grande or special lol although... my classroom door did have a special star above the door!!

Actually, if your even asking about etiquette, your ahead of the curve. I have one friendly suggestion - it was actually the subject of a Rant post I did recently.
Don't forget that often MUCH wisdom comes in through postings to a thread and not just the OP. Posters who chime in without reading through at least the several page and less variety can be really out of the loop in terms of the information and opinion flow.

Welcome to ATS - I look forward to reading your input.

Welcome! I'm new too, an as you can see I've been lurking since 2007. Hope we can both get involved here on ATS.

Yeah, I'm passed the curve!!! Thanks for the advice, I totally agree with the reading of the entire post! Thanks again!

Hey 2007...! You'll have to show me around! Your a Journalist or are you studying Journalism? Nice to meet you!

it seems that the people who skip reading through posts do so as a way of life. Leaping before they look, you know?
It's infuriating to make points just to see people continue posting as if what you wrote is invisible. *sigh* So goes the life of the internet poster.

I, too, am on the edge of the circle, but thats the way I like it... a much better perspective of the whole. Some people truly can't see the forest for the trees.

Welcome aboard.

Hope you enjoy the ride! My recommendation is to watch the new topics posted, and start commenting there.....

Welcome aboard, Kostas!

Hey Mod thanks! I think I have already broken the rules...... my bad? It was purely accidental honestly! I have been commenting on the Threads outside of the Introduction threads... have I committed a crime already?!

Sorry sorry sorry!!

As I had posted in my first post to you, you can reply to any thread in any forum you wish, You just can't start any threads of your own until you have 20 posts under you belt.

shouldn't take you long kostas. I signed up late last night and this is my 31st post. (i can't believe that.)
Be careful though, i think i'm getting addicted to stars (though i don't get the flag part yet.)
Seems I already have something like 23? I feel like it's grade school all over again. Though I don't think I get to trade my stars in for a rad pencil case at the end of the month

You legend! I LOVE THAT PICTURE with the tin foil! "If those ET'S think they're getting me... another thing coming!' Brill! Thanks.
