thanks for filling me in, have an extra tin foil hat i can borrow? i will eventually be comfortable enough to share and i will try not to be to sensitive, as i mentioned before, i do not do well with bullies/trolls, but i am certain i will have to deal with something. a lesson learned in humility is a lesson gained. just hope the humility is not to harsh. i will do my best to respect others no matter what they think of me.

if you say so, thanks for the welcome, i would rather not be looked at as a fool so i will be very careful. of course i suppose there is always the chance i will still be a fool to someone. oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained, but i don't handle rejection very well.

Welcome to ATS, DoubleEE !

To answer your question:

P = number of posts that you have made
F = flags received
S = stars received
W = your "way above top secret" rating
K = your karma rating

Other members will give you stars on your posts.
{It seems this feature is disabled in the "New Members" forum.}

Other members will flag the threads that you have created.
Even "New Member" threads can be flagged.

I don't know how the ATS web-site/system calculates the W and K ratings.

I forgot to say that the W rating is also referred to as the WATS rating, because it stands for "Way above top secret", as I said in my earlier post.

Anyway, you may want to check out this thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Or else, you may want to do a search on ATS for the terms "Karma" and "WATS" and "way above top secret"

This is all I know about this. Sorry.

No, I am not really a new member, as you can see from the date when I joined ATS, which is February 13, 2009.

Over the years, I just chose to read a lot here on ATS, ...and I posted comments almost never.

Anyway, I recently decided to post a bit more. I mean, why not?

Also, I have been reading ATS since 2007, so I am really not a "new" member.

Cheers

Welcome to ATS! Quite intimidating, isn't it? That is how I felt before I joined. For the most part I would call us a loving yet occasionally dysfunctional family, you will be comfortable in no time! I can't wait to read your stories and contributions to the site

Never put yourself down there are enough people out there who will try and
do that for you.

You present yourself in a clear and concise fashion which trumps most people round here
Including myself

thanks. well dysfunction i can handle. i am extremely dysfunctional. intimidating as a whole, i am not certain i classify ats that way, dysfunctional maybe. there does seem to be certain people in here that insist on being rude and use bully tactics to try and intimidate. i will probably do all i can to avoid them. nice people are easy to handle. mean people not so much.

not sure how concise i am. thanks for the encouragement. confidence is not a strong suit for me. i have been through a great deal of changes that force me to be this way. i have been very humbled. i am sure that whatever i have been through though pales in comparison to others much less fortunate than me.
