Not sure where to start...
I became aware of ATS about a year or two after its inception. Never really felt the need to become a member (up until now) because I have been
satisfied with learning from member posted material.
Like many out there who find themselves "lurking" or joining communities like ATS and others, there was an event in my life that led me in this
direction. Prior to that I never really cared about much. I was a teenager when the change within me began to unfold.
I am thankful for my awakening.
I have seen so much change in our world and on ATS. I have read countless pages of content posted by members who have come and gone. Some of which I
would consider to be the most intelligent individuals I have ever encountered on the internet. I even remember what ATS used to look like almost 10
years ago when I first viewed the site, how the members treated each other, the standard to which everyone held themselves and each other when it came
to EVERYTHING. Etiquette, research, debate, friendship and so forth.
I decided to join (finally) because even though I don't hold any degrees in relevant fields or have anything specific to share...I feel that after
almost a decade of reading and learning and reading some more I am able to contribute in ways that would compliment ATS no matter how small.
With that said, I hope this message reaches everyone well. I hope to add my own personal vintage touch of the old ATS community to the newer one.
