I'm Confused

As you probably guessed...I'm pretty confused. I've visited on this website for a few months now and never really seen the importance of becoming a member. But then, while I was watching X-factor, the black guy in the background flashed the Devils horns. Yeah I know thats not that big of a deal and he probably didnt even know what that meant. But I just thought that if something big ever DID happen, I might as well share it with you. ( to tell you the truth I'm also kinda bored).

So anyway, to get to my confuseness, I dont really get how this website tell you the truth I'm not quite sure where I'm posting this....I get theres a 20 post minimum before you can start a thread, but whats a post?
Is there somewhere that explains this website a little more?

Well other that, and about me....Well I'm pretty open minded (to a certain extent) and uuuuh. Yeah

Yea as of right now, you can only post new Threads - (A topic containing multiple "Posts") in the Introductions forum. However, you CAN visit the other forums and threads contained within, and make your individual posts in there. Each separate little block where people say things is a post. The collection of posts is contained within the thread, I.e, the name of this thread is "I'm Confused" and the threads are listed in separate forums. I.E, the new members introductions forum.

Wait...what does a black guy flashing devil horns on X-factor have to do with anything?

Now I'm confused.

As for all of your questions....I dunno. I never put any thought into any of it I just started posting stuff, then did a few threads. I never bothered worrying about any of that stuff......

Thats what worked for me!

Hope it helped!

Well Dachanman97 you have made a good start, Introductions is where you are and that is the right place to be

"Posts", are your comments on the topics you wish to join in with, there are rules obviously regarding how you present yourself, language,courtesy etc. and a rule that prohibits one line answers...try to present good argument,make points add links etc

Hope this helps, enjoy

Okay really the only important rule I've gathered from my short time on ATS is that you must post the most snarky sarcastic scathing comment you can on someone's thread.. and then count your stars.

[I am joking though, we don't need any more of that lol]

Think of it like a huge filing cabinet

The Forum is a like big shoe box, inside the shoe box are files called Threads related to that shoe box title, inside the Threads are posts, reply’s by members who are discussing the threads content

i hope this helps clear things up

It has been brought to my attention that my joke reply to your introduction could easily be mistaken as something other than a joke. I had originally intended to return to your thread with a more welcoming response but became involved in another thread and forgot to come back here.

So please accept my appology for the gruffness of my original response and welcome.
