A cornocopia of almost every thing a new ATS Freshman
would want under one roof.
Hey new members!! Come here if you need advice
This section includes how to Contact
Staff, make Alerts and help maintain the ATS Discussion Etiquette.
Starting a New Thread ?... Look Here First
Great information as we want your thread to get the visibility it deserves, so make sure you've got great content backed-up with links (so we can see
it for ourselves), and then add your thoughts on the subject matter.
IMPORTANT: Using Content From Other Websites on ATS
. Before you link a website in
your post or thread, please read this.
Rules for Avatars and Mini-Profile Background images
This is the place to find "the how to's" and what sizes will work for your personal Avatar or Profile Pic.
Uploading Pictures unto Post-2013 ATS
, Serving up member's pictures and snapshots
since the retooling of ATS back in 2013, and here's a little secret on your Picture uploads. Always make sure they 'end' with one of these three
formats; jpg, gif, png... (a jpeg needs to be changed to .jpg to be accepted as only 3 letter formats are accepted).
Take your time and enjoy, ATS is a pretty large place
There's a lot of great spots to explore and share your comments in. Being this large it's safe to say that not everyone is going to agree with what
you might say. And actually that's a good thing as this allows all voices, theories and ideas to come out for discussion.
But be aware that sometimes, people's conviction's can get the better of them and they might attack the person and not the subject being discussed.
This is when the T&C's are your friend and on your side. Please notify us of 'their offense' immediately by using the complaint/alert feature. To
report an offense, find the little "top-torso-person silhouette" to 'click-on' in their avatar/meme area, make sure the post that your wanting to
alert us about is where you click 'that alert' from. These reports are reviewed by staff as we take all complaints and Alerts seriously.
Some areas will require a thicker-skin for discussion and debating and they can get rather heated (in certain arenas). Other areas require you having
an open-mind and a need to consider thoughts and theories that don't fit the 'norm'. If you like to tip-toe in to darker areas, you'll find
'like-minded' and curious members that are also into UFO's, the Paranormal, Cryptids and Conspiracies.
There's also places to just chill and cool-down from all the craziness and frustrations of this wild world. Whether it's showing off your artwork in
, or sharing a piece of music you like or created in the
forum. Maybe you'd like to toss in your "2 Cents" in the
General Chit Chat
If you like to read (and compose) good stories, there's a few places for the "mighty fine creative minds" of ATS to hang out at.... including one my
favorites the "Short Stories" forum
And finally... remember these words as "you" are responsible for "your" posts, so please..... " Post unto others as you would have them post unto
