I have to start with a huge "thanks" to all of you have posted and contributed here. It was your posts that got me hooked. I visit at least once a day and sometimes more. I love the content and mostly I love watching the "IMHO's" flying around in here like bayonets of personal truth.

I was a long-time lurker and then I "signed up" my 20 posts done and then...I don't what happened from there. I don't know why it took so long for me to make my intro. I suspect that part of the reason (for delaying my intro) is that I was just plain caught up in the plethora of evidence, opinion, science and humor that can be found on ATS.

SWFL (for those of you who don't know) is Southwest Florida. This is where you can find me...most days. I am from New England originally and still visit periodically. My overall interests are politics, NWO theories, sacred geometry, and anything else that seems to move me..."in the moment".

So what prompted me to finally present myself with an intro tonight? One, is because I knew that I had to at some point and the second reason is that I am going to move from here directly into my first "real" post. I am currently reading over the rules and regs and familiarizing myself with the categories so that my first post lands in the appropriate place.

Sorry to ask for favors so soon, but I need some help in understanding where to place this post. So, members, where do I put a post about IFOs--Identified Flying Objects--military planes in airspace that is totally out-of-character for this grid? Help please and I will begin my first thread upon receiving this guidance.

Thank you to you soon.

Be sure to try out our Ask ATS with the "earch words"of your choice. I'm sure you will find many threads to pick from to add your thoughts and opinions too.

The ATS Search feature is your friend!

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 be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** 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 think or 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! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also 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"...!

Thank you for the greetings. You stated in your post to me that I need 20 post...Have I not already fulfilled that requirement? If I have, then can I start a thread? I have something that I would like to share with the community.

posted on Mar, 2 2012 @ 08:37 PM
Yes you have completed the minimum requirement.

And if your query is still for "Where to post a thread about an Identified Object" you have several possibilities. If this was at one point something you thought was Unidentified but now Identified and you wish to share so others in the UFO community might benefit from it, then you need to post it here: Aliens and UFO's

If though it is a "personal story" about the event and it having some other ramifications, you may want to post it here: The Gray Area

If it's about a object or craft that you've been able to determine is perhaps an experimental project, you may wish to post it here: Military and Government Projects or in here: Skunk Works Highly Speculative

Hope that helps..
