Hi,
I've been lurking for a while. A good real-time friend has an account and I've looked over shoulders, but decided it was time that I post myself.
Not sure exactly where my interests may take me, I like to jump around.
Jack of all trades, master of none sort of thing.

welcome to the place where the weird get weirder every day
. Congrats on what im sure is to be the beginning of an epic journey into the strange world that is ATS.


thank you and good day/night depending on your location in this universe.


p.s. let me start you out with your first flag... lol....

Also to help with what i have found many new members have seem to ask...

Under your avatar you will have (my current stats as of this post) P 407 F 40 S 382
W 3 K 15

P- stands for post

F-for flags

S-for stars

W- your Watts index score- This is a result of a formula that takes into account the posts, flags and stars. The higher the W, the higher the ranking of the individual poster. You'll see some posters with gold or silver borders. This indicates a higher watts index

K- Karma- just a quick glance rating of the individual based on posts/stars/flags ratio.

Thank you! I was wondering what all the numbers were! So it's kind of like a ranking system or something?

Do I get prizes? Maybe a new car?! LOL

I'm at a friend's house and he stepped out for a while. He could have told me more about how to do things on this forum before taking off! LOL
How many posts do I have to have before sending messages to people? I'm not comfortable posting everything to the threads on some of them because there are some of the people who get a little rough!

ATS can be a bit like that, but it's not supposed to be.
I encourage you to post in threads, to discuss.
It's a discussion board, and by discussing topics, we might just get to the bottom of things.
Don't worry about the trolls, just do your thing and stay within the T&C.
That should be enough.

Take care.

Its a bit late but here is a list of threads you should look at. The mods usually post them.....


 
From the Desk of Rustyk
 
Email Me! (ATS.Rustyk@gmail.com. Please Use "Abovetopsecret". in the subject line).
 

Welcome to Abovetopsecret. I'm an UN-sanctioned, UN-official Greeter for ATS!


Welcome to ATS... SproutKY! This may be used a quick reference tool for links!
Straight jackets are on your left, meds are on the table, and if you hurry, you can still get a seat in group therapy.



Common first question is answered here:

Once you have achieved the minimum of 20 post replies, you will be able to create your own threads in their appropriate areas & additionally be able to send and receive messages to fellow ATS members. Private Messages can be sent to Staff only, (but after the 20 post minimum, you'll have full access).

 

These are the links the staff will give to you to read. I suggest to do so as there is a LOT of information contained there.

Welcome SproutKY!
I'm new as well, and can relate to you, as I too have been lurking for a few years, and am somewhat of a jack of a few trades and master of none as well, lol! Maybe we'll be able to master a few more trades by being on ATS! Take care and see you around
