I have often wondered about this and I dont know a way around it.
This forum format is not the best one for research topics but more suited to comments which is what the 'forum' format was probably started for.
Basically, any old Tom, Dick, or Harry can comment and say whatever they want as long as they dont violate the T & C or attract a moderator. That is
not to criticise ATS because it is the same with any forum format.
I wanted to create a kind of summary of the Fukushima thread because it was so large. It still does not solve the problem of off-topic posts, flames,
and just plain shill-like useless comments, etc which is why I am creating a free (as in no money) research site where a topic can be started and a
group of interested people can investigate together. I think this is the way forward and may go some way to address this issue.
This website is basically a closed forum managed by the one who started the topic who can allow others to join/leave the project according to who they
want as members. This is the only way I can see it working and with me being god over all. (Someone is bound to want to start a research topic which
is illegal, insensitive, immoral, etc) I am going to make the pages freely available to visitors as read-only and the topic can be copied/exported
along with the associated resources by its members. Distributed copies is the only way we can ensure safety and continuity against TPTB. It also
promotes responsibility and engagement by the team members.
If anyone would like to add input of ideas etc to this website I would welcome your contibution and it would keep me motivated to see some others
interested in this apart from me. Thanks for starting this thread by-the-way.
Now some links.
In the Fukushima Thread (part 2)
I posted links to
the reference website
which has stopped at page 1350. Shows Youtube links, links to PDFs, list of
referenced websites, images posted, etc. In order to see all the items you need to go there from ATS, a direct link (bookmark etc) NOT from ATS will
only show the first few items.
A summary of the last 100 pages or so for the old Fukushima Thread and the new Fukushima Thread
( is here )
. Place the thread number in the first box and the 4-digit page number
in the second box at the bottom of the page. Links back to ATS at various points to the pages. This may be the only kind of computer-generated summary
possible, since humans have to summaraise the actual paragraphs if that is what is required. Obviously, I do not have a very artistic flair for web
design, so it looks very basic, as do all my websites :-)
The final link is to the research website mentioned above
which is not live at the moment, but the
demo is available. It is question-based, which means every page chain is used by the team to answer a research question.
Click on the link at the bottom of the index page and then click Section GENERAL, Category OTHERS.
Project 1 is the demo about the Titanic and should allow most functions to be tried out. There are other sub-projects at the bottom of the project 1
page. Do not save anything you want to keep because the database is often cleared out and re-populated. Send me a private message on ATS if you want
to help/have comments or use the Contact Us on the research website(top right tab on index page)
