Hello, I am also a noob, but managed to get my avatar by going to myATS, then ATS uploads from there. Add the pic you want then there's an option to
click to add as avatar. Then you have to go to the tools page, scroll down to the avatar section and click submit, otherwise the image won't save.
Hope that helps.
I am not a newbie but an oldie. Glad you joined ATS. Just ignore the negativity and you'll be fine. I would also add to think carefully before
replying or starting posts. If you have not done your homework you are going to get flamed, That's just the ATS way. There are a lot of very smart
people here and I love to learn from them. So think before you hit any buttons and you will be fine.
Love and Learn!!!

Not a chance. This thread is staying up for as long as ATS exists.
Greetings [color=Cyan]member-initiate we98jhwe:
Welcome to the next step on your path to realizing your personal best by experiencing ATS.
Remember, grasshopper-san, one does not try ATS, ATS tries one.
Obviously, you're not going to get away quite that easily, as you can readily ascertain from esteemed member
masqua's observation and veiled admonishment regarding eternity and what
you write, as it remains forever (unless, of course, one inadvertently strays across one of the many well-camouflaged
trip-wires and gets Claymored by a mod -
Semper - you out there?), and, unlike some instances and even games in
this perceived reality, (do you perceive the very same reality as we think we do?) you can't ask for a take-back... but, no biggie.
(BTW, we could never figure which way was 'front' since one didn't know who was the real 'enemy,' as no being is an 'enemy.')
But we digress.
Back to the ATS ranch and talk 'round the corral water trough.
BTW, IMHO, if you don't get stepped on once in a while by a "vigilant" mod, you are not pushing the envelope, not that anyone
would ever dream of doing such a thing purposely, but stuff happens in the bright lights of free association and keyboard
One of the best features is the ability to share moving, informative videos with your fellow members, some for just fun, some for imparting a message
of urgent appeal, such as this one we share as an eye-opener into the real world we all share on post-Fukushima planet Earth.
Are you an activist?
Figure out a way to get a rad reading where you live and share with us - THAT just might draw your attention to perhaps the mother of
all conspiracies - the fallacy of safe, secure, immutable, long-term radioactive waste disposal!
The quintessential mods (see above) may drop in time-to-time and drop cookies as to where your personal "goodie bag" may be hidden on the
cavernous shelves of ATS Warehouse 13. It's a great hunt, some even allude the
quest is never to be fulfilled (but that's another thread), so hang on to your hat and fasten your seat belt, for it can be a helluva ride-sharing
experience and we love every minute of it.
Needless to say, the journey begins with a single step (or in this case, 20), so beware of what's behind
Door #1 (it's always monsters in the movies);
Door #2 (Antarctica, which, of course, leads to the hollow
earth), which leaves you with - what else? more Doors.
[color=FDD017]Welcome to ATS, the absolute best learning experience on the Internet.
[color=Cyan]member-initiate we98jhwe, you appear to want to jump into the pool with both feet, so we'll
be happy to share your social experiment, should you be interested in further communication.
We look forward to your participation and will attempt (shamelessly) to recruit you and invite you aboard the good ship Hope.

Please tell us that you are no where near the overnight tornado damage in Alabama.
We are now saddled up and are on stand-by, awaiting confirmation of specific need and equipment requests. Alabama, here we come!
Thank you for your time and consideration, and most important, your participation and pure intent on welcoming new members into the fold.
Unfortunately, such pristine efforts seem to fall un-noticed by the roadside at times. Thank you for all you do.
However, were we just punked in this thread?
(Punked - an off-the-cuff tribute to beautiful green-eyed redheads)
i think i'm obsessed with red hair and green eyes, most of my pics have it...
After a few hours of restless non-sleep, we lurched awake with a blinding headache and worse, a nagging suspicion that we were just part of some
social experiment promulgated on the lumpenproletariat by Los Tres Amigos and Slayer (who is prolly an alter ego of the collective wit
[half-right?] of the three of them), and this whole 20-post thing was merely a device to observe the squeaky path taken by the maze-mice ferreting out
Just can't figure out 215 points, 4 flags and 2 stars for this now-odiferous pile of bravo sierra.
As we queried previously, "where's the beef ?"
Good one, guys.
We owe you one, and, we too, do not forget.
And now for something completely different:
Here's yesterday's Tweet for an uplifting read.
Occupy+Anti-Nuclear Collective now a force to be reckoned with. TEPCO/JAPGOV blink as radiation cover-up exposed. Experience this
story and latest breaking news on ATS: Tweet

Hey folks and sub-20-posters :-) Yep, like the majority of you folks I'm here to get another notch on my post, so to speak. Funny thing is, I didn't
want to just post junk just for the sake of getting another notch but at the same time, I'm not to post some of the thoughts I'm having on the
threads I'm reading.
Okay, each to their own, but there are some way out theories and ideas here - and I thought that I was bad until I read some of these, haha! Anyways,
I'm learning to be respectful and just raise an eyebrow rather than shouting my mouth of as I want to be a nice member of the community.
Hope all you folks hear where I'm coming from and don't flame me :-)
