ill tell you this, it was simple, easy on the eyes, and this place had me hooked from the start.

i was a lurker for so long because there was so much interesting stuff to read.

it was no surprise to me that ATS became what it is today.

so can anyone show what ATS has become over the years?

thanks and thats an awesome website. i am totally excited to see those old screen shots. ats has always been easy to navigate .

lots of the newer members would totally enjoy seeing how it used to look.

im thinking 9/11 brought many people to ATS. its what brought me on board.

You should have the "Grab" ap on your Mac.
That works great.


It's cool to see how the place has changed through the years.
A surprising amount of skins in my tenure here.

That's cool, I was just looking around and came across a thread in 2006 that existed on ATS for months,



How things have changed. Not that I feel the need to talk about the subject, but it's cool to see that it was possible.

I've never understood why this was taboo.

I suppose we're not even supposed to discuss the why.

The long and the short of it is that ATS tried to allow adult conversation on certain topics but adult conversations never seemed to happen - they always gave way to the discussion of recreational or personal use. So the forum was closed and the subject was restricted.

There are countless sites where discussions of that variety are allowed. ATS is not one of them. We have no age limit for membership - so we have to keep things family friendly. In my opinion this is a good thing. The vast majority of members agree.

Well honestly guys the original ATS in its entirety is still available to everyone.
I must warn you it has been vandalized (and I DO MEAN VANDALIZED)and anything post 2010 is pretty much crap
abovetopsecret.yuku.com...

simon gray (the original owner before ATS became so commercialized) used to post conspiracy theories and he would post publicly more than once a year. CRAZY I know

That technology is unworthy for assimilation.

Can we still get the special edition cd rom?

I don't like going back. Makes me think of me back then.....lol....scary.

Wow...looking at those screenshots, I can see why people liked it. Simple, easy to comprehend, organized, all of it. None of the flashy bangs and whistles these other sites use to grab your attention.

I guess ATS had to keep up with the rest of the internet though, eh? Whatever it takes to deny ignorance.

Simply put, its against forum rules.

As is trying to introduce it via "back door" methods.
