My introduction and hopes for ATS

Hi all! I am a long time follower/lurker and have signed up to participate now as well. I am mostly interested in the Breaking Alternative News forum and political topics.

I am an avid ARG player and that is kind of what led me here. ARG's use conspiracies, codes, etc as a means to progress the game and naturally ATS came up in a few searches during these games.

I hope to be able to contribute any knowledge I may have to the topics and make a few new friends along the way. I don't troll and try my best not to come off as rude. I respect other people's opinions and hope that you can do the same for me.

I won't be posting much but figured I should do an introduction anyway. I look forward to debating some of you soon!

Howdies! Welcome to ATS the best darn site on the web. People here are great as you will learn. Enjoy, see you on the boards.

Howdy, glad your no longer a Lurker. But most of us did the same thing for awhile. We understand that because of the size of the website it can be quite overwhelming, so how about a presentation tour to help get you on the right track...

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 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"...!

Welcome Blinkydoo...

Love the member name...and if it is your actual name, your parents rock.

Glad you joined and sounds like you will have something to add to our already convoluted minds. And for that, we ALL thank you...

Enjoy it....

Thanks for the tour/links. I read a lot of those before actually posting anything and I will read the rest before joining into any big discussions.

I agree that this site is a bit overwhelming at first and you probably won't see very much of me at first while I adjust to figuring out all the rules and courtesy stuff.

As for the name, no, it isn't my real name unfortunately. Blinky is my nickname though. Thanks for the replies.

Thank you, thank you. I would like to thank the small people that...what...oh

Welcome Blinky. Glad to have you on board. As you can see I was lost in another world as you will find many on ATS are equally lost.

Hope to hear from you in future posts. Good luck.
