I don't believe ATS is a non profit organization. Hits = money
Was there a claim that ATS is not-for-profit? As far as I understood, ATS is part of the above top network, a business. In any case, IMO, there is nothing wrong with making a profit from doing something you work hard at and care about.

He was a member of the online conspiracy theory message board Above Top Secret, though members of the site did not respond warmly to his posts.
That is the quote from wikipedia....I don't think that made ATS look bad at all. In fact the opposite would be true.
That idea sounds very anti-ATS.
Make the Freshman Forum not a place where tips and tricks and F.A.Q's are but make it a for real "Freshman Forum" with a few subcategories...or even have threads in this forum policed by the Mods before publishing. Restrict them there for say, a month or so. This way, the newly appointed thread starters can start threads in what seasoned people will know to be the "Freshman Forum"... Still get ad revenue, still get new topics, and new members can feel as if they are contributing...Is this making any sense?
