Thanks! I came to check out a website and found a diverse community and comfortable home.


Great thread to start and one I'll certainly continue to check back on. I'm as curious as anyone to see the variety of answers for how folks came to join the ATS family.

I'm totally the same way, hence the reason why making the thread.. Like hearing from guys like Phage and so on, the ATS guru's, I just like hearing how things come together, because without us (the community) there wouldnt be this great site...

The humor. Mainly connected to aliens, conspiracies and the like.

It can be the best laugh I get all day but sometimes those that actually believe the insane get me riled because I wonder how intelligent people can get so caught up in belief in chemtrails and the like when if they go to an airport and watch they'll learn something their little brains might register.

...but mostly the humor






Hey I totally get it, what makes ATS great is its crazy diverse community of people from all walks of life, but we ALL have a few things in common, aliens, ufos, conspiracies, etc...

For me, in researching many subjects involving government corruption, corporate conspiracies and the supernatural, I kept finding ATS pages in my Google searches. A friend of mine (Night Star) belonged here and loved it. I eventually joined because I saw that it dealt with many fascinating subjects and had a lot of good threads.

Very nice.. The what got you going on Bigfoot, was it just a curiosity you had to research or was it a specific part of the Bigfoot legend you were after?


Oh yeah, that's another thing I've always been interested in. Cryptozoology.

I think why ATS stood out for me was that while there were a lot of websites devoted to information, some good, some not so good, there was not so much a coherent community of people with the inclusion of a set of standards to go by. It might seem strict to some, but it serves a good purpose.

Forums make the content here. User generated. But not like other forums that may not be specific to the topics presented here. I know I've read some thing here on forums that are about football or body building. ?! odd. lol

I also love the way the forums almost ignite with activity if something happens that gets world attention. It's focused, yet lively. It's at those times where I think we see who really shines as contributors to the content.

Nothing like 48 hours of no sleep and the energy generated here to keep yhou banging on
lol

I came because of my interest in aliens, ufo's, and alternative theories.

I stayed because of certain people I find very intelligent, funny, and thought provoking.

I don't remember how I found ATS, but I had never seen such a huge site with so many fascinating subjects all in one place. It was love at first sight!


I never could understand how so many people could be lurkers when there are soooooo many things to comment on and share.

The one thing that kills me is that I always see the older members talking about the "good old times" on this site dating back 5-10 years, still being a noob (ya know, a couple years) i never got to witness the "good old times" and I'm so curious to see how the times have changed, whether it be for better or worse... ATS in its early, raw stages I would of loved to have witnessed or been a member of...

After witnessing corruption in my local government. I was doing some research and ATS came up on in a google search. I lurked for a while then forgot about the site. Later I was looking up stuff on prepping and ATS came up again. Joined for the survival forum and I have been here since.

I'm totally with you... It's incredible the wealth of knowledge we have on this site... I consider ATS a total gem and pity those who haven't found it yet

Totally agree, how can you read these awesome threads without participating, I believe i found the site and within a day or two I was a member...

When you say survival was it more of a "prepper" type of thing or just the subject in general?

I have always been into ufos,aliens,ancient history,bigfoot .

What really brought me here was finding the truth on why the birds fell out of the sky in Beebee,Arkansas.
I had been having alot of trust issues with mainstream media.
Thus,the rabbit hole of thruth I fell.

Peace,
K

Yes, I remember when that happened... It was the fireworks!!! lol..... Very crazy/strange things that happen around our world each year... The birds falling out of the sky or fish hitting the coast in thousands dead is all weird in my mind...

I don't remember what brought me to ATS to be honest, but I remember it was around the time I started "waking up" to another reality. I definetly took the red pill and immediately went down the rabbit hole and life has never been the same.

It's a good feeling, isn't it?? Its nice waking up to all the BS that's going around us... I do feel bad for those who just live their life thinking everything is hunky-dory around them..

I was researching how accurate an author was in his writings, when I stumbled upon ATS. It was a bad time in my life as I was going through a rough divorce at the time.

ATS became a great distraction from the woes in my life at the time, and I found the members on here to be a great bunch of slightly off the wall very supportive and intelligent weirdoes, so I thought "Cody you might just fit in here". So 8 years and too many 404's later I'm finally getting the hang of it (I think) .


So came for science and research,

Stayed for the friends

Cody
