Hello.
I am not new to computers, yet figuring out new things like trying to join a forum is very challenging to me. I was introducing myself by erroneously typing in messages in the incorrect places and WHAMMO I was banned before I ever got to start a thread. What is a thread? It is something you put in your sewing machine, and a post is something made of wood or steel that you pound into the ground.

Thankfully the supermoderator that banned me was understanding, and here I am.

I am a cheesemaker, a woodworker, a husband, a father, and a handyman.

I like this forum because of the interesting topics. I apologize if any threads or posts were disrupted due to my ignorance. I will be reading everything closely to avoid any more mistakes.

Now I have to go start a fire for heat in my woodshop which doubles as my garage, and work on a six foot corner shelf whose beauty has been hidden by brown paint.

oh yes, I am into shelves, serving trays made from reclaimed pallet wood, knifemaking, and kitchen knife collecting.

I will be back.

Think of ATS like a huge filing system, there are topics called Forums, then inside those Forums are threads started by a member who wants to discus with us or inform us about something reverent to the thread its been placed in, then when members talk in that thread its called a post.

so if you were looking for ghost sightings or wanting to talk about ghosts, you wont find it in the us political madness forum, you will find in the paranormal forum.

Forum = subject
Thread = a topic relative to the Forum
Post = comments by members discussing the Threads topic


So I am making a Post in your Thread ... Banned and back again ... that you started in the Introductions Forum


Welcome and i hope explained it ok.

Love and harmony

Welcome neodruid66! I can get into the whole "wood" thing. Years ago I stained an old table with homemade stain made with chewing tobacco soaked in a jar of apple cider vinegar. It made the neatest color! Looking forward to seeing you around the forums!

Cheese, woodworking and knives are things I enjoy myself. if you ever choose to start any threads on those topics, I'd be interested. I pop in and out on ats and seem to miss out on many good threads. As far as making errors in posting, god knows I have as well, and so all I can say is, just keep learning your way in this place, I still am, and it takes awhile, but acknowledging your mistakes and trying to fix them is a good start. I am still amazed at all the great people on this forum, there is so much here to learn and inspire a person, I hope you have a better experience this time. See you on the forums!

Welcome aboard, and enjoy the ride!

Wow, and no mention now that you are my brother. My older brother, in fact.

Good to see you back in action.

Your post was perfect, as an introduction, and I think you got the idea now. Just remember to hand out stars to posts you like, and flags to the threads you enjoy. Gimme a call if you have any more questions.

You should also respond to the members that greeted you, making a comment specific to their response. It's the only way you can get your post count up. You have to post. That's the point.


Much love bro, glad you finally joined.

Thank you for the valuable information.
My problem is that I am very visually oriented so learning how threads and posts interact in cyberspace challenges me.
Your analogy of a file system will certainly help.
See you around..
