Well here's the dreaded first post.
I've been frequenting discussion forums since I first discovered them many years ago.
ATS was recommended to me a good while back. For whatever reason I never got around to joining.
I suppose forums are like cars. You may not be driving the best, but it can satisfy your needs for many years and to many it becomes like a second home and becomes a part of you. Obtaining a new vehicle requires a change of habits, so for some reason I have been prompted to join here to augment, not abandon, what I have gained and experienced in other forums.
I am very much looking forward to my experience here.
My interests revolve around archeology, philosophy, ufology, extraterrestrials, and everything in between.
I'm a believer in much of the unproven aspects of our reality, however I don't buy into things easily and always seek some degree of validation etc.
Anyway, a big hello to all members, and I'll see you on the boards.

Welcome synchronomy

It's great to have you with us!

Now just pull up a cyber-chair...

...and sit a spell and we'll go through a few things that could be helpful to know.

First of all, as ATS is a big community and there are lots of forums, you might like to check out the Forums page and see what catches your eye. It will also give you some idea on where to put a new thread if you want to start one after you have your first 20 posts. (Oh, and regarding our 20-post rule, perhaps I should just add that besides giving new members a chance to settle in, it also helps in picking up the obvious spammers before they can wreak too much havoc.)

Because there are so many threads already, it's not a bad idea to do a search here before you eventually post yours. Okay, you won't always find an exact match, but it's helpful to check. You can also use it if you just want to find threads on a certain topic.

Here's some of the threads that are worth a visit early on:

Terms & Conditions Of Use (Important stuff!)
The ATS Freshmans Forum
Starting a New Thread ?... Look Here First

If you need help with anything, feel free to send a message to any of the staff. Just mouse over the “member” tag under any staff member's avatar, then click “send message”.

Also, if you see a post that you think is a problem under the T&Cs, then mouse over the poster's "member" tag like before, but this time click “ALERT!” and perhaps write a few words about why you've alerted it. The alert goes straight to staff (with a link to the post) and we'll look into it as soon as we can.

So, have a good time and see you around the forums!
