Moderating on ATS is a voluntary responsibility. Moderators are not paid/compensated in any way, other than being allowed to participate in helping the board to be a better virtual place to gather and discuss topics intelligently and without the ignorance that so commonly reigns supreme elsewhere.

While not compensated monetarily there are gifts. My personal favorite is the extra large pink thong I got last year. It's very freeing.

ATS is a business...

ATS makes lots of money...

If staff isn't paid, other than in purple thongs, where does all that money go?

I thank you for your service. It is such volunteerism to uphold an ideology that we can all improve if we all just try that makes not only this forum a better place, but I am convinced it spreads beyond these electronic boundaries.

the hush hush word in the white house has it that one of the owners has a thing for shoes, now since the code word pimp was used and seeing that this image below was circulated and infact it was originally in J.D. Hoover's files as a possible mechanism for the downfall of capitalism, i guess this is why the owners have been so mystically quiet these last few months.

I thought it was quite a valid question actually...

Probably the Mods like to do this, and this board is quite large, so it should be quite satisfiying to see it all go so well.

And the money, well, servers aren't free to run.

No. They're certainly not free Nor cheap either. Especially when you're talking multiple, custom-designed, enterprise level 'site servers', database server, backup database server and load balancing hardware.


Add bandwidth, a 24/7 dedicated monitoring service. Mix & Shake well ... then get the big checkbook out.


Staff do what they do because we like to help You all do what You do - Make this place the best.


intrepid's pink thong dealio was a complete misunderstanding in the ordering dept.

they were supposed to be pink 'save the ta-tas' t-shirts in support of fighting breast cancer.

don't know how they messed that one up so badly. :shk:

Love that idea.

Seriously though, do the ads and everything still cover the costs ?
