The panel that decides what meets the criteria need not be all mods. However, it shouldn't be upon to just anyone. We all know there are a lot of
people here that chime in about things that they don't have sufficient knowledge about, well intentioned though they may be.
As far as implementing it, it would be harder to set it up and maintain it.
For example, there's a good UFO picture in the UFO/alien forum. A member of the panel presents it to the rest for consideration. If it meets the
criteria for Solid Proof, a link or download would be made for it, and it would be placed in it's appropriate category with some information about
If the photo does not quite make the cut for Solid Proof it could be filed under Supporting Evidence, under the "Pro UFO" Category.
Then, if the picture just wansn't of a high enough quality, it could be ignored.
Only high quality material should be considered for placement. What is high quality? The criteria could be determined by a member of the panel who is
looking for at least a certain degree of quality, whether in sound, picture clarity, etc. If it meets that person's cut, it can be presented to the
This would need to be an ongoing project, as new documents/vmedia are made available to us. Also, as technology changes, we may then be able to
further review current pieces of evidence to see if they still make the cut.
Here at ATS, we're all about Denying Ignorance. Uncovering the truth, one way or another. If there's a claim, we gather the best evidence available
to us to support the claim, and place it in the archive for easy access. Then the viewer could raed the write up, look at the evidence, and make their
By actually gathering evidence, that puts us yet another step above the rest. We're not just debating topics, we're trying to find the truth. We
won't just accept what we're told. Deny Ignorance.
Evidence that we archive should really be top-knotch. Since it can be viewed by others, our reputation for research is really on the line. The panel
needs to be pretty confident in whatever ruling they come up with. It may not be as good as a UFO landing on the White House lawn. However, the
evidence should be strong enough to go to court with(not that I'm suggesting legal action)
Here at ATS, it's all about quality control. That's why new features keep appearing. The staff is trying to offer the highest quality experience
possible. Archiving top-knotch evidence to further our mantra "Deny Ignorance" would further raise the bar.
