I've been reading this forum for a few months now, and decided to finally become a part of it.
I'm not trying to spam, I want to say hello to everyone and now I won't just spend hours reading, I'll spend hours posting on threads as well

In Ontario (as far as i know) there is a contest for a "race to space" and a reader of their newspaper will be selected to go into space for I believe is 3 days, and was wondering also if there is an appropriate section in the forums where I could share the application link with everyone that would be interested in giving me a vote and helping me win

So, back to topic, an honor to finally be a part of the community on here

An introduction post is not spam unless you try to sell us a book, a theory or post pages and pages of info. (It does happen, the latter sometimes well-meant though

Welcome to ATS, the razzlest most dazzlest forum for conspiracy theorists around. Ooh Ontario eh? I hear they have mosquitoes there. Nasty little beasties I personally have an allergic reaction to. You have my sympathies. (One bite from the little bleeders makes me swell up like...well, let's just say it's not pretty)

You need to have 20 posts (to any thread/post) before you can start your own topic but that took me less than a day. There is so much happening here.

A Moderator should be along shortly with some helpful links and info to get you on your way. Enjoy and I look forward to seeing you around.

heya fella, welcome

the more flags a thread has the longer it stays up, i always flag the important stories that i think more people have to read. stars dont really mean anything other then..people agreeing with you

also i think the top flagged threads make their way to facebook and other social networks, i could be wrong though

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, 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 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 on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally 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. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** 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, Comrade! I look forward to many fruitful idological battles together, either on your side or against!

You asked about whats the deal with 'flags'?

Well now is a perfect time to try out that feature I mentioned above called "Ask ATS"

Try it out, just click the link above and type in What is flagging?

You'll get results to a number of threads and pages on just that subject!

Give it a try now,
