I have been around for a while and I may be able to help with a few things. I don't get on ATS every day, but if there is anything I can do, please ask.

Welcome to ATS

Thank you, my friend ! I would like some help about starting new posts. I've tried but no success, Is there any restriction for newbies?

I think you have to get your post count upto 20 posts before your aloud to make your own thread.

I'm not going to hold your hand and guide you to knowledge, but I will give you some advice to make your education easier. Besides learning the information should be half the fun.

I would suggest starting with one forum at a time. That is what I did. As I started to familiarize myself with the various popular theories and arguments for and against them, I'd move onto other forums. Now I can just sit on the recent posts page and post on just about anything.

Also I'd suggest showing some humility and familiarize yourself with a topic throughly before lending your opinion to it. I know it may be tempting to read something that you are absolutely sure is wrong, the person saying it is an idiot and you need to let him know. However, you may end up posting something only to end up looking completely foolish.

Follow links to sources that posters provide and read the information. Don't take anything that a poster says at face value even if they have source material posted. I've seen time and again where people post a source but have only read about half of it and completely missed the end of the article that contradicts their entire argument.

Once more thing, make sure you are familiar with logical fallacies. If you have poor arguing ability you won't last long on these forums.

Hi there


Welcome.

I'm here to offer my help too, if you need anything just ask away. Check the link in my signature for help with avatars and here: ATS Freshman's Forum for other general guidelines.

Also, yes, there is a restriction for new members. I believe you have to have at least 20 posts to start a new thread.

Enjoy your stay.

I appreciate your help ! For sure i am not one more newbie shouting out loud that i know the truth. Just the opposite. I am here to learn and to share, and never to impose my opinion or to be rude with someone else.
To live is to evolute. And when we share we learn. Thanks !
