A new trend that is highly disconcerting.

Is this going to be the future now?

Is every single earthquake that happens henceforth going to be made into a thread on ATS?

Is there not a single earthquake thread, where all smaller quakes, under 8.0 for example can be reported in, if someone wish to do so?

Because looking at the main page, the recent topics page, there is 5 earthquake threads of seperate quakes, I mean even a 4.6 is made into a thread. I think it is getting out of hand.

ETA: Actually there is a thread, called Quake Watch, where everything can be reported, thus, these other threads are not needed.

I have to agree all the earthquakes are disconcerting


Would you like to limit threads on tornadoes to only F3 and above? Threads will live and die on there own merit, nature will run its course whether you want her too or not...

WHAT MIGHT BE AN EVEN MORE DISCONCERTING TREND ON ATS IS PEOPLE MAKING THREADS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE MAKING THREADS! THREADS POP UP, AND IF THERE IS NOTHING TO THEM, THEY DIE A QUICK DEATH....AS IT SHOULD BE....THIS THREAD AND THE OTHERS THAT ARE NOTHING MORE THAN JUST VENTING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS NO BIG DEAL ARE THE STUPID POINTLESS THREADS, NOT THE THREADS ABOUT EQ'S!

I find it rather amusing that you and I just created the same thread. Ugh. Are we as bad as them? I didn't start my thread for stars or flags, doubt you did either. We are better.

I reiterate something Phage said a year or more ago.

There has been zero statistical increase in quantity or power of Earthquakes over the last several years. Look at the USGS graphs and see for yourself.

And my own personal spin - The only reason it seems like there are more Earthquakes happening is simply because there is a higher level of media coverage via Social Networks and the Internet being the most widespread.

More Media Coverage does not mean it happens More

"When HAARP stops creating Earthquakes, ATS will stop reporting them!"

= mentality?

I don't know much about earthquake science, but I do know that people certainly are hard-wired to think think the end of the world is going to happen at the end of this year.


Just charlatry of a new breed. If it's not about some comet, or some disease, or some terrorist/president, it's gotta be earthquakes.

I think of ATS's main page as like a group's projection of a list of worries. Somewhere tucked between that, is an interesting thread with original thought.

I am hoping that instead of becoming jaded to ATS, people will begin to use forums again, and not rely on the front page to please their needs.

That I do not disagree with mate.

But the sheer number of threads regarding earthquakes is getting a bit silly.

Its like people see a quake, and reports it on here, for instant stars and flags.

And to be honest, what is there to discuss when a small quake happens? Maybe how someone's favourite coffee cup falls from his table and breaks?
I can understand if its a huge quake, but come on, this is getting absurd.

You guys mention stars and flags as a motive for making these threads about eq's, but what do you get if you get a lot of stars and flags? Did I miss something about this site? Do you get a prize? Big golden crown? People are just posting because it interests them, so what, shut up.

S&F mate

I agree, seems people are just waiting for disaster to strike. Some people get off on that and it's sick and twisted.

E-peen inflation. Some people are more concerned about accumulating points than contributing. A LOT of ATS users seem to be this way. It's like a video game. They think stars will get them to the next level. It's gross.

I raised my opinion, because i feel it is clogging the boards with unnecessary news, for example a 4.6 in Kenya.
Your sarcasm is a bit obtuse to be honest.

However, carry on. I shall just try and ignore every second thread on here then.

OMG another thread about people making too many threads.....
Actually I got nothing....Im just being sarcastic...

While I feel your pain, and I agree with you wholeheartedly.....Im not sure this is something we have the right to complain about. people have the right to make threads useless or not. Its up to the mods to decide if they are worth a poo.

It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong......or a regular sized man plus a midget.

Makes me want to start a bunch of tornado threads... "F1 twister breezes by midwest town...."

My perspective is... if more than 5 people are injured, or at least 1 person dies, it might be worth posting. A 2.7 in Oklahoma now and then, not necessary.

Although, more than 5 people are injured daily just walking up or down the stairs in their homes, is that worth a dedicated thread? I'm in agreement with the poster who spoke of nature taking it's course, if a thread is worthy, it will attract the appropriate attention... unless it's chemtrails or UFO's that can't be debunked.
