I know what you mean grandma. I have a mother with Alzheimer's and my only other "friends" are relatives in their 90's and they don't take to conspiracy.

When I first read the banner about the campaign I thought it was part of the advertising........Point being maybe changing it around a little bit or making it larger might help draw the people into the thread. Many people might still be in the dark about what is going on.



Also I know you guys can mass message every member this might also be a good idea. I have heard about ATS gear like hats and such but have no idea how to purchase it? This would also draw in a ton of money.

I already asked about the hats and mugs.
They only cover cost, so there is no help from that area.


Although I have both hat and coffee cup...

AdSense is the next biggest joke after Google. Seriously, how they even pretend to be serious is beyond me. I had the same issue with my site in 2010. A user had posted "beautiful Russian Military Girls" and voila, somehow Google deducted that posting women in Russian UNIFORM (with COATS) was porn.

I tried to appeal, got no where. I doubt many people do. We were a site about the outdoors and at the worst, we were PG.

So I feel for you, I'll see what I can do after Christmas.

Hmm, but maybe the merchandise could be made available more mainstream, say Amazon, and then, if Springer or SO join Amazon Affiliates, and send traffic that way, they get paid for the referrals, plus fees off anything else bought in the same transaction.


I use that on one of my wesites, which is a tiny site, but I get referral fees every month. Something to think about.

But you are not wearing it in that picture!


Pffft.

yeah, I thought it would be supporting the site with these purchases, but, I was told that nope, cost, which sucks, however, it is a great hat and mug.

I've engaged an infrastructure expert to begin considering how a the Open Source Platform for Citizen Journalism platform.


Please tell us this person is donating their services free because investing ATS finances into future projects right now would make the request for donations for getting the site out of current problems seem a little ironic.

This Citizen Journalism sounds similar to my ignored thread suggestion and would suit a shorter term goal focusing on current events that come and go rather than my concept of long term historical ones that would stand the test of time. Quantity or Quality?

Sorry, but I'm having a hard time accepting some of what's going on right now. Yes, I don't understand everything but at least I still have my thinking head on even if it amounts to nothing.

Like you my friend I thought I was contributing to the cause

ETA: I'd have happily paid a bit more if I knew it was going to help the site out

See!! We have hunky chappies on site!! You should all make a ATS cover boy calander for 2015! I'd buy one!

Conspiracy calander girls LOL

Actually I'd be right up for that idea, we could do a male one for the girls, and a female one for the guys.

I'd definitely buy one and be right up for the laugh.

What say you Skeptic and Springer, we could post photos (T&C friendly of course) and if you guys could organise printing and an outlet, maybe directly from the site, I reckon it might just go down really well.

It's worth asking the question

MissBeck as it was your idea I offer you the thread, if you don't want it 'll author one and give you credit for the idea.

Just let me know which way you'd like to go.

Cody


ETA: The avatar artists could maybe have a competition for an avatar inspired calender (Hint hint DTOM)

Any idea why the attacks have ratcheted up recently? Was there something posted that someone doesn't want out there?
