So I've just taken the step of joining the wonderful realm of ATS after two years of lurking. I'm 18 years of age I reside in New Zealand, just left school and into the "real world". I am a firm believer in UFO's having seen one myself.

I look forward to communing with such a wide range of intellectuals.

Eventually even a MOD will show up to say welcome, and show you the ropes.

We are a friendly bunch of bananas here....

Welcome to ATS.
Hope you like it here and look forward to seeing you around.

Tinfoil hat is not compulsory but sometimes advisable. Hold on to your hat, things can run fast at times.

Also, Is there any "experienced members" I could query privately or something about a couple up coming posts I may post in the future?

Welcome, welcome, all are welcome. Patience, you need 20 posts to private message someone. You will get a nod from the mods, be sure to save their links to "HOW TO" do stuff.

I saw one also. I want to hear your story too.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with a bunch of rides, so with that said...

Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure that you act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
