Welcome to the team.
I'm still recruiting, and have several people interested, but the PRIMARY concern is the time commitment. What's important to realize is that it's
not an immediate obligation you are committing to, but rather a CASUAL, yet thorough, obligation.
Yes, it does take time to research a topic.
That's the whole point of this forum. It should be the de-facto standard of EVERY thread on ATS, and it's why we are here, trying to rejuvenate
this particular forum, with members who are able to spare a bit of their time, here and there, researching, and writing posts that are on-topic, when
they have free time.
There's no pressure. There's no overseer hovering over your shoulder, saying post, post, post, no, not at all. This forum is about being
interested in a topic, taking the time to research it, and posting rock solid information on topic.
Honestly, it's refreshing to be here. It's knowing that the annoying one-liners don't exist here, and we can read a research topic, and learn
factual information that exposes the reality of a topic. It's the premise ATS was founded upon, and one that within this forum, is revered.
It's also about teamwork, and working together with others. That's a rare concept in this modern age, where everyone has their own opinion, and
won't divert to other possibilities. Teamwork is something often unheard of, yet is a cherished aspect of human nature. We like to interact with
others, yet are often set at odds because of differences. Teamwork nullifies the trivial disagreements, and as a unit, once formed, is a formidable
force in fleshing out factual information on literally ANY topic.
Yes, research isn't for everyone. It's only for a few, those who really care, who take the TIME to use their computers to google information.
Being fair, anyone can google, true. To take a topic, and use their skills to present a solid argument, well, those are in a class of their own.
Those are the Scholars of ATS.
