Hey, I'm MugenGinga - most generally referred to by my internet nickname of Mugen or my real life nickname of Prue - and I decided to join up here after hearing my father talk about it fairly incessantly (but with nothing but good things to say!).

I'm 25 years old (turning 26 next month) and a freelance artist hoping to launch a webcomic later this year. I've only recently gotten into things like politics, thanks to the state of my country (United States of America) and the upcoming election. Part of the reason I joined was so I could get some help researching the hopeful candidates.

I've also got some opinions on touchy subjects such as aspects of racism and gender equality that have gotten me into trouble on other sites before. The idea of having a place where I can discuss those (maturely, of course!) and any potential trouble will be swiftly and fairly handled by moderators is one of the key reasons I joined. Places like Tumblr are just a bit out of control on terms of troublemakers, rude and unwarranted attacks, and outright trolls due to their lack of moderation.

The layout here kind of throws me off, so I may be asking questions from time to time how to get places. It took me five minutes to find the introduction forum (just had to try and post, who knew?). I do have kind of a habit of sticking "XD" at the end of a lot of my statements, but I'm pretty good about dropping that in serious conversations so hopefully you won't see too much of that from me here.

So basically, hey I'm new and I hope to get the experience I'm looking for out of this site!

WELCOME!!! look forward to hearing some of your opinions, and just a heads up some peeps can get prety cranky on here to so try not to take a lot to heart.

Greetings! I publish a web comic myself (with a second in the works), so I wish you all the best of luck with yours. It is a lot of fun. ~_^

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many 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, also known as 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 to 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 that may be contrary to your own.

* 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"...!
