Why do I create threads?
I'll keep this short and simple - the motivation for me, personally, and this really is my motivation regardless of what anyone may say or believe..
but I write my thread's to learn. I really do. These topics absolutely fascinate me and whenever I take the time out to properly write up a thread and
post it here on ATS I usually take at least a week or so to get it all done (the longest took just over a month), and that's time spent researching,
trying to gather facts and everything else like that as well. I truly believe that the person opening the thread really should be one of the most
knowledgeable person's on it after all and should be able to not only follow the discussion which will undoubtedly take place, but also take part in
So for me, when I go to write a thread, I try to learn as much about whatever it is I'm bringing up for discussion as is possible. That's why I always
talk about topics that fascinate me personally, as we all should, as this way It's time well spent on a personal level. With taking your time to do it
properly as well, instead of rushing it and getting it out there as quickly as possible, you end up being able to get a lot of key information in as
well which in turn, help's other's learn and become fascinated by the topic at the same time. Win-win as far as I'm concerned.
I'm really not a fan of star and flag whoring. It's such a waste of time. In reality I'd rather take the time to do it properly and really learn about
it instead, and that way It's time well spend for me as I'm getting something real out of it. Just have a look at the vast majority of
for example, they're certainly not done
overnight. A lot of time and effort goes into them and I've learnt a great deal too.
