Welcome to ATS, your new hobby. As you have noticed new members may not jump right in and start their own threads except for in the intro forum. Once you have 20 posts (replies) to other peoples threads (hint, also including this thread when people say Hi back) you can make your own. It's to discourage spam and other unwanted things I think.

A Mod will be along soon with some helpful info and links.

Welcome, and enjoy it here.

Hello, glad you decided to join up! Because of the shear size of our beloved forum, we understand that it can be overwhelming at times. To help orient you into the right direction, we've created this small presentation tour.

Welcome intheknow29

For now you can reply to any thread in any forum you wish. Once you have achieved 20 post replies, you will be able to start your own threads in the appropriate areas & additionally send/receive messages to fellow ATS members. You are now able to send & receive (PM's) Private Messages to Staff only, (but after the 20 post minimum, you'll have full access).

To save a lot of searching and even possible future heartache & frustration, please review the below.

Be sure to try out our Ask ATS with the "search words" of your choice. I'm sure you will find many threads to pick from to add your thoughts and opinions too. We encourage everyone to please contribute to existing threads rather than start a new one. This will also help guarantee that your thread won't end up as a duplicate located elsewhere. 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"...!

Ahhhhhh.... I smell new blood.

Welcome aboard. One hint that you might want to keep in mind is that there is an option to where you can friend somebody. There is a list of actions under everyones avatar that you only see when you scroll your mouse there. You can use this to keep track of people who share your interests and viewpoints. Doing this saves you from being swamped by people who you have little in common with. Helps to make for better conversations all the way around.

Nice to have you here, have fun.
