It has come to our attention that members of another conspiracy website are being pressured to contribute money for what many consider "basic"
discussion board account privileges. I'd like to point out that...
Full Membership on AboveTopSecret.com Is Free, And Always Will be.
1) It always was:
There has never been a system to ask for anything more than your e-mail address to confirm your new account.
2) It always will be:
ATS management (me) has repeatedly said there will never be a paid membership, or even optional member contributions. The
only "payment" we ever ask for is your best posts.
3) All member services have always been, and will always be free:
a) Secure private messaging
b) Chat system
c) Full posting privileges
d) The largest avatar space of any discussion board
e) Free Upload space with limits based on only your participation
f) Free member blogs with a industry-leading blogging tool
g) Free podcast service with your own personal podcast feed
h) Organized debate contests
i) Organized writing contests
j) Reduced advertising when logged-in as a member
k) Opportunity to earn money as a "Conspiracy Master" (coming soon)
l) Opportunities to contribute to offline content products (coming soon)
4) The most advanced discussion board platform available:
The above services and our unique technology combine to provide members with the most
advanced discussion board platform that is expertly search-engine optimized
. This means your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and research will be
indexed by Google within days and sometimes hours.
5) All members enjoy a professionally managed environment:
And with all of the above services, ATS is well-renowned for having the most
professionally moderated discussion board, period.
We refuse to allow short "drive-by" posting that add nothing to the thread.
We refuse to allow insults and mayhem that you'll see on many other boards.
We refuse to allow spam and hate speech.
We promote intelligent posting.
We promote productive debate and collaborative discussion.
We promote the examination of any topic as long as manners are maintained.
We respect the content of other sites and encourage linking.
We respect our members' content and defend its credibility and their rights.
All of this is freely given to our valued members. All of this, and more, will continue to be freely given to our valued members.
