Cheers man, if the owners come back with a tinfoilhat anonynous cash option I'm there...but if not I may start to think it's just data mining in the biggest piss-take way of members I can imagine lol

*Edit*
Account number and bank branch is all I need for an anonymous international bank transfer.
It is an international conspiracy discussion website.
What is the issue preventing such a means to contribiute to ATS?
Conspiracy?

I'm closing this thread for now because it is so far off the planet it's just ridiculous. Provocateurs with an ax to grind shall not disrupt ATS any more than we should allow to them infiltrate a legit protest on the streets.

Closed until further notice.

Hello everyone.

Thanks one an all for your exceptional support.

We've received 131 much appreciated donations, a few of which exceed $100 -- I never expected that. I stuck those higher contribution levels in there just for the fun labels. :p

We're about 40% of the way to the loan amount.

No, thank YOU, S.O.

Glad to see the response. Whether people see ATS as entertainment, information, discussion or something else, there is no arguing that it has a little something for almost everyone.

I don't think you inferred this possibility, but I imagined the gaping hole in the internet if this gathering place were not here and protected.

Good luck attaining your goal.

40% of the loan amount must take a little pressure off I imagine.

Given the terrible timing I would imagine that repaying the loan could be accomplished early next year and then it will be the time to start the long haul to the much needed overhaul.

S.O.

Glad to here that you are doing great with those donations. Sorry I couldn't be The Powers That Be....

I know I speak for many when I say that this site is a top tier forum that provides a well balanced, thoughtful community of out of the box thinkers and ridged fundamentalist that can get together and provide critical thoughts to one another without vitriol and hatred being spewed, unlike other online destinations.

Unlike many other sites, ATS providers have opened my eyes and have truly made me change direction and outlooks around the world today. Not many site can support this claim.

I really hope that you will be around for many years to come.

Just curious here, I know those who run more illicit sites like torrents or some of the stuff on the dark web uses an extensive range of website mirrors tied to the same domain so that if one is attacked and taken down the website itself is still operational and the data isn't lost. Is this really that expensive of a solution? I was always under the impression that a lot of these sites (especially the smaller ones) operate atleast initially off of very small budgets.

I still remember the totse post of a new alternative news site coming soon, if memory serves the date changed a couple times, wasn't much to see then, place has grown since those early days. Been a lot of laffs, and a few tears; but ATS has always pulled through and those of us who appreciate the hard work of the 3 amigos and vision of an gamer; ATS will survive a bit longer. I've been here since the beginning and have enjoyed ATS more than any other alternative site with the exception of the original Totse.

WHAT! Wow! Someone needs their booty kicked and a nice lump of coal this year for what they did!

I will gladly donate after the holidays!!

I was a tad surprised to see this at the top until I read the link. What a bunch of, well things I can't 'say on here due to T&C


Good luck and I will donate after the holidays for sure! This is my favorite site on the internet and the longest commitment I ever had. I feel violated by those twerps!

Just a couple years after that, we're mud. Suspicious, no?


This might be one of those times where the short term implications, negative as they may seem, liberate you from an outdated model and seed the opportunity for something greater.

Tap into the creativity and imagination that made ATS a pioneering online community in the first place (predating adsense itself) and you will undoubtably not only recover, but thrive more than ever.

All the best!

Well ATS the whole donating Plasma thing for me fell through the cracks today. I was not able to donate due to High sugar content in my system, They eluded to possible diabetes? Well ok? But i also had a call about this job interview I went on a few weeks ago. I have a appointment for a psychical and drug screen scheduled for the 30th of December. Not to much worried about the drug screen as I am the psychical part. I am a smoker that has tried to quit for many years. I just celebrated my 50th birthday realizing I have been a smoker for 35 years. I do not even remember what it is like to be a non-smoker. Considering this I get winded easily. Probably have COPD. I just hope this physical is not going to far like some I have had in the past.


But the good news is If I get the job you better bet I will contribute to ATS as much as I can.

You rock ATS, stay strong! I am also glad that ATS has achieved 40% of their goal. Good job contributors, good job!

i cain't contribute, BUT i can give a very, very helpful advice. Be careful of the kinds of ads you put on here and who gets more air time and cost. In today's society this thinking is a cool gold coin in the pocket, if you know what i mean. Adds are a huge reflection of companies and if they think something poped up as bad on your website with one of their adds was on it, even tho it was not connected to the bad , you get labeled bad. In other words. If you have a bowl of sugar and an add puts up a short add," on the bowl of sugar" then the sugar in the bowl gets dirty. How is a customer going to portray that sugar bowl? DIRTY. NO buy here. They don't like this, they would like the sugar bowl to remain a white clean color other than the dirt specs that flew in it. My advice is to clean out ads that are inside of all the
topics you feel might be to controversial or high impact and leave ads in that are not high impact. Do this and you will have cleanned the sugar bowl and put new sugar in. To make things even more better add a little honey in this christmas if you know what i mean. I should of went into buisness, but that is not my thing, so merry chiristmas and i hope this helps. Maybe for chistmas talk about a topic that asks
what is your favorite comercials to sweeten the deal.
