Alright folks, before I turn in for the night (a book and a scotch awaits) just one more reminder of the debate thread here.

Also, still waiting on word about a live debate on ATS Live, as soon as I know something, you all will as well.

Thanks again for the support and absolute fun this has been so far.

The best is yet to come!

I would also want questions (if you have any) that I can posit to the candidates on future debate threads.

Your ideas and suggestions are always appreciated.

What did you have in mind?

Anything particular? You'll get five frames of animation for a small cash donation to my campaign.


Coffee Pics for sure. Dunno about T&C if you want to add in "bra-lessness", you'll get lots of votes but the mods may frown on that. Got a slogan picked out?

Maybe a banner along the lines of

"Clueless."

"Free Spirited" (thus skirting the potential "bra-less" problems)

"Has coffee, will shop."

"What's not to like?"

"Vote Cluess Girls - 2012"

I would imagine that coffee, credit cards, and potentially chocolate (appealing to the female demographic on a visceral level) would HAVE to figure into the images. There's something subliminal in there, some where...

"Growing the seeds of wisdom" ....very cool....very good job.

I thought the point you made about how important of a news source ATS is to it's members was very true, especially international news, and also perspective on how people around the world view different events.

I also liked your thoughts on how you would help new members...it can be a very intimidating environment at first. I remember my first thread was a diaster, and had it not been for some very kind member that gave me encouragment when I got beat up pretty bad by some other members I may have never come back.

Good Luck.....

As I am sure you all know, Beezzer was kind enough to put up a thread asking the candidates 3 questions. I was happy to answer them for my fellow members and I invite you to read my answers as well as the answers of my fellow candidates.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

There were several great answers from my fellow candidates who have replied so far. Things are really picking up and I continue to wish good luck to each of my fellow candidates.

I've started a discourse in that thread, would you like to contribute?

Personally, I believe there are two groups of individuals currently participating in this faux election. Those who are treating it as fake, and those who are considering the possibilities of what is structural wrong with the governments of the world, with the economy. I believe you are amongst the latter.

Sure, the Regent is an imaginary position, but I believe that you have the capability to step outside "the box", and address issues that affect not only ATS, but also those of the world at large.

As an exercise in politics, this thread has caused "polarization" of the individuals participating. They are focused on their own needs and wants, a direct inflection upon society as a whole. What's the mechanism that drives behavior? Is it a simple meme that says get what you want, and you are happy, or does it derive from a more ulterior motivation of knowing the next generation will be secure?

I'd like your input.

Let me sleep on what you posted, I think I may be able to engage in your discourse.. I'm just too tired right now to think clearly.. And I have to say I am taking this seriously, it's a great exercise in how to actually win an election and make voters listen.. Something that could be useful IRL if one were to run for a town council seat etc..

But yes I'm tired, and yes I've been having a little fun as we go along..

You did a nice job, and your well spoken, but I wish I would have learned something new about you, it was basically a re-cap of your campaign so far.

I agree with druid, would be interesting to see more "debate" within the thread reguarding each others responses to the Questions Beez asked.

I remember my first thread was a disaster, and had it not been for some very kind member that gave me encouragement when I got beat up pretty bad by some other members I may have never come back.


I'm sure many can relate to those sentiments.

One point I'd like to try to make is there are many good links on how to create a good thread, the newer members don't know how to find them. The repercussions of that are one line threads, a posted youtube video with no discourse, and mods working over time trying to keep up with all the unnecessary nonsense. We've all seen it. If you check, those are the members under 500 posts. They are trying, they WANT to contribute, but they ultimately fail because they are viciously attacked by posters who shred them to bits. Are there members who join and get shot down, and become discouraged, never to post again? I'm sure there are. Is there anything that anyone does about that? Nope. It's a vicious fight to gain credibility on ATS. That's the way it currently is. The mods are strict as heck.

Beezzer was kind enough to come up with the concept of a Regent, but he carefully didn't define it with any parameters. Most running think it's a sham, but the OP wanted us to take this seriously. I'll respect the OP's wish in true ATS style and stay on topic throughout this course.

To me, it appears to be the Regent's responsibility to aid the membership in improving the quality of ATS, primarily through instructing newer members. Would people support the Regent, and link to the threads the Regent created, thereby reinforcing a support mechanism that helps members create better threads?

There are many people that say ATS has gone downhill. I disagree. Those that say that don't really know what ATS is all about. There's a disparity among members that perhaps need an icon to unify behind. Would the Regent be that icon? Honestly, that's speculation, but I've seen time and time again when there's a riddle that needs solved, or a UFO that needs debunked, or a question that needs answered, the membership steps up to the plate and provides logical answers and honest solutions. That is the amazing part of ATS. It's not one person giving an answer, it's many working in unison to come to a common solution. Every member of ATS should be proud to be a part of this community. I know I am.

Thank you for your thoughtful response. I think if one finds themselves on ATS it because they have become "awakened" for lack of a better word. That is already a difficult, and in my case very "emotional" time. You will quickly find out that most people in your real life do NOT want to hear it.....lol...trust me, be very careful if you ever bring up 9-11 at a family gathering....I was shocked that people that Love me, and I think respect me would react with hostility toward me, my sister went balistic and accussed me of having no reguard for the people that died and our country.

The point is, your already vulnerable when you are new, and seeking answers and people willing to discuss difficult subjects. I also agree that one of the coolest things that happens on ATS is people work together to solve "mysteries" and actually I have gone into threads with very strong opinions on something and ended up changing my mind.

My sister is saying she wants to go to the Olympics in London, thank God, we have a family wedding and her son is off to college, so she probably won't do it. I just bit my tongue, cause how can I possibly explain to her all the "ominous" signs and my bad "vibes" about something very Bad happening there?

So that is my next question to the canidates....Do you believe there is any reason for concern that something "bad" is going to happen at the Olympics this summer?
