How to be successful on ATS the quick and easy way!
Ok, so, you’ve been lurking for a while and decide to jump in right?! Good for you! And of course, you want to be successful and a valued member
correct?? Well, let me help ya' out!
Now, you have a few options as a member of ATS.
I’ll get the slow and boring ones out of the way first....bear with me!
1: Read and comment sometimes…contribute through discussion.
2: Become one of the few well versed topic starters…the ones who research and come with well thought out, well researched original posts.
3: Become the king or queen of BTS.
4: Participate in writing contests, research projects, debates etc…
But those are boring right?? You just got here and wanna make a splash, and in a hurry too!
Gotta prove your internet prowess!
Here are some more tips that’ll take put you on that road to glory in no time! And trust me, these seem to work!!
1: Go to YouTube, find a video containing lights, a story taken out of context, or one bashing one political party or belief and start a thread using
2: Stalk the recent posts page and wait until someone starts a thread…as soon as they do, jump in and make some witty one line post immediately
after the OP (this one is gold! Watch the stars pile up!!!)
3: Know what’s hot and what’s not. People don’t care about last week’s topics! Japan? Pshhh….That’s so a few months ago! No one cares! You
gotta know how to rehash the same “in” topic over and over again. See: Ron Paul and OWS, as an example.
4: Sensational thread titles! Try these…”OMG” “PROOF” “WARNING” “INSIDE S SOURCES”” Don’t forget the excessive exclamation
5: Predictions! (But only if they are doomy and gloomy, and written as if your keyboard had a milkshake spilled on it) ***Bonus Points if you
6: Point out that the REAL conspiracy is actually ATS!!!!!
Now obviously this is all in jest. Didn’t know whether to put it in the rants or jokes forum.
I just wish people would settle down is all I guess.
