New Forum: The Gray Area
We've launched a new forum to provide a dedicated area for a category of threads that seem to be happening with increased frequency. After much
internal discussion among staff, literally going on for weeks, we've settled on a name and rationale for the forum.
The Gray Area
Link to The Gray Area Forum
The Gray Area is a discussion forum that provides a dedicated area for members to post their confessions, disclosures, and related extraordinary
personal experiences. Like the highly speculative Skunk Works forum, The Gray Area will tolerate topics that may be unusually hypothetical or unproven
for the purpose of vetting the stories of thread-starters by the ATS membership at large.
Like the Skunk Works forum, the Gray Area will expect our members to afford a level of tolerance toward fantastical personal stories ranging from
those involving aliens to potential government whistle-blowers. The goal is to embrace those who may have unusual experiences so that our members and
visitors can learn more within a controlled and civil environment.
However, this is not to say that we will tolerate fictional accounts with the intent to hoax our members and visitors. If and when a story is
discovered to be a proven hoax or fabrication, our staff will consider appropriate action.
