Following on from Isaac's post here
and in memory of our good friend
Jkrog, below is a new and revised list for his chronological UFO thread directory. Originaly compiled by Justin and Themythlives, the thread has
turned out to be an invaluable tool for the ATS UFO board and contains info about some truly remarkable UFO cases and ATS member research.
After 3 years, 13 pages and an astronomical number of off topic posts however, it was thought condensing all the new thread additions back into one
source might be a good idea, if only for future research / accessibility reasons and helping new members navigate their way around the UFO forum.
Some important threads may be omitted so please feel free to post ATS links to additional cases and research, there's also Justin's comments at the
top of the page about duplicate threads and the importance of an ATS database that are well worth a read.. as are a great many of his personal UFO
threads which can be found here

***Just a reminder guys, this is a ATS UFO Thread Directory***
While I appreciate the enthusiasm and good will to add good cases to this thread that is not what this thread is intended for. This
directory is for ATS threads ONLY, for many reasons. One, it builds our OWN database. Two, all these threads have been peer reviewed by
objective members and are confirmed at least possibly true (or proven hoax), and three, it is a general guide to what has already been adequately
covered on ATS, in an attempt to stop duplicate threads and mediate new and/or better presented cases. Also this thread is not concerned about
cases covered elsewhere, it is is strictly for cases published here. The point being you can go out and research a case not covered on ATS, make a
thread about it, and post it here-To add to our (ATS) ufological directory.
Just remember that this thread is for ATS UFO threads, not a general thread to present cases from other sites. It is simply a collection of the top
and best threads members throughout the years have made for us on ATS.
***NOTE: If you have already posted cases not related to an ATS thread don't delete it or worry about it. Just remember for the next time. Also if
you have any questions or new information to add or ask about a specific ATS thread do it there or u2u me, I'll be GLAD to help.
First off let me give credit to my good friend TheMythLives for providing some help to
compile all of these cases, without his help this would have been a much more daunting task. So thank you my friend!
Alright, one thing I have noticed missing from the UFO forum is a total compilation, in chronological order of ALL of the better and more
thoroughly covered UFO/Alien cases and related threads on ATS, pretty much a directory to help members find important threads amongst the vastness of
ATS. As we all know ATS is a huge place, with many top threads (regardless of the flags, if flags were even around then!) getting lost
basically forever in the “ATS Black Hole”, well no more. NICAP has their
sighting chronology, so must ATS in my opinion. There have been such a great amount of threads posted on
various UFO/Alien incidents throughout the history of ATS that I feel it is time to properly document all of these (and of course add as it becomes
necessary) great cases excellently covered by the various members of ATS. Of course there is already Gazroks’ great thread,
Compilation: Some of the best UFO Cases (or the Classics) , this thread however is
more of a “directory” of UFO cases covered on ATS(in chronological order by decade), helpful ufology related threads, and a list of the better
known hoaxes. I am only trying to post the more complete and somewhat detailed threads, it is also quite possible I have missed many threads that
should be one here, so by all means feel free to add any I missed, but please, only ATS threads, no external links. This is important for
another reason, we can now see what we have archived and what needs work. Some threads may need to be redone, most will not, and there are many cases
still not covered on ATS to any detailed extent.
**Note, some topics are posted in this chronology more than once, that is only if that thread added something more to the original case, not covered
in the first thread posted.**
**Also, while some threads posted in the chronology may indeed turn out to be hoaxes I felt it is necessary to place them in the list until proven
** I am also trying to stray away from the more speculative side of ufology, so that is why some threads will not be included, as they are highly
** Some events stretch across decades in waves or flaps, I am placing the incident in the year when the first known incident took place.**
**Also I have tried to only include the more detailed threads, so there could be many more threads added but were no since they were nothing more than
a sentence or two with a link. This is for the more complete threads, or threads that would be helpful to anyone attempting to investigate
**Also keep in mind that the term “UFO incidents” also covers alien related cases as well.**
