    FROM THE CAPTAIN'S SEAT
    Issue 4
    http://www.IgnoranceDenied.com
    Administrators: Smirkley, Seth Bullock, JCMinJapan, ZSandmann

    Welcome, to the fourth issue of the ID.com newsletter. In this issue:

    *ID incorporated into ATS*
    *New moderators*
    *Coming soon revealed*
    *Iggies*
    *And the Winner is...*
    *Forum Highlight*
    *Political forum added to ATS family*
    *Happy Birthday to...*


    -----------------------------------------------
    ID incorporated into ATS

    As many of you already know. ID has been brought into the ATS family. ID came from ATS orginally, but we were not sure if we would ever get the navigation tab that you can now see at the top of every page.

    A little history:

    If you have been to ATS, i hope you have seen the forum "ATS sponsored games and events". "Find the Rings" was the first of these games. everyone had to search all over the internet in an attempt to find four rings, which, if placed in the wrong hands, would be very bad for all humanity.

    The four finders of the rings were Smirkley, Seth Bullock, JCMinJapan, and Zsandmann. If these names sound familiar to you that is because as a reward for recovering the rings they were given IgnoranceDenied to run and expand, and are now the admin.


    This is the site you are on today.

    -----------------------------------------------
    New moderators

    With all the members from ATS that have come here, we felt we would need to expand our staff, and gladly welcome Mizar and DrLau to their modships.
    -----------------------------------------------
    Coming soon revealed

    I'm sure many of you were wondering what the coming soon image was all about. And here it is! Andrew Knoll, a scientist who studies the early life of Earth, is coming to ID! Please check out the Interview Forum for more information.

    -----------------------------------------------
    Iggies

    A few of the members at ID have "Iggies" where their member title would have been. This is the new award system we have come up with. Iggies will be awarded for quality posts or for winning games and contests at ID. For more clarification, please u2u one of the captains.
    -----------------------------------------------
    And the Winner is....

    Gopher figured out the person in Gamemasters was Mark Totten, a plumber at Knox college in Galesburg, IL, USA.
    http://www.ignorancedenied.com/viewthread.php?tid=1176&page=5

    Stay tuned for Game 2 Round 2

    -----------------------------------------------
    Forum Highlight: Zoology

    Please take a chance this month to visit the Zoology forum. There are numerous "A Closer Look" threads which highlight various animals on the planet. If you want an animal to be represented, we encourage you to make one. Pineappleupsidedown will be happy to make a banner for any appropraite "A Closer Look" threads. There is also discussion on insects and animals nearing (or reaching) extintion.

    -----------------------------------------------
    Polical forum also added to ATS family

    Many of you have also seen PTS, a site dedicated to political issues of all sorts. With these 4 forums all branching from ATS, it can be hard sometimes to decide which forum to post your thread in.

    Our advice:

    Post in ID when your thread:
    is not conpiracy related
    Discusses scientific facts
    has Society discussion not involoving politics
    Discusses Philosophy

    Post in ATS when your thread:
    covers conspriacy theories
    has religious controversal issues
    involves the paranormal

    Post in PTS when your thread:
    Has anything to do with Government or Politics

    Post in BTS when your thead:
    involves light questions
    could be defined as "chitchat"

    If you still are not sure, you can u2u staff here or at ATS with your question.
    -----------------------------------------------
    Happy Birthday to...

    /Future Corpse/ on January 2nd and Icewolf on January 5th.

    If you would like your birthday here, please make a post in the news ticker-birthdays thread
    -----------------------------------------------

    If you think there is anything else we should make sure to address in this newletter, please u2u one of the captains.

    Forum Highlight: Archeology

    I wasn't sure what to do, because there was a tie for Forum Highlights and I can't just wait around for people to vote.

    I was literally about to resort to Rock Paper Scissors when finally a last vote came in.
    So, please be sure to check out the
    Archeology forum. Start a new thread. Or more than one. You have a month to do it.
