1. Why do I have to give so much information in order to join as a visitor?

In order for us to create a safe environment, we need to make sure that the person joining is not merely creating a fictitious account in order to get access to the community. The information a visitor gives is identical to what a member gave; that levels the field. We will review the information supplied. We reserve the right to check out the accuracy of the information given. Inaccurate information will result in the suspension of the visitor.

2. Why do I have to pay to join as Associate?

Unlike other low cost internet providers, our overhead as a community is much higher. A low cost internet provider can serve about 40,000 members with a single server. Our community, due to the various services is limited to 3,000 members per server. Still, our prices are just as low and could be the lowest after you deduct the share of the non-profits.

3. What does a server consist of?

We have our own modular design for a server with a capacity of 3,000 members. Each server that comes online has several redundancies (4 Hard Drives and a tape backup) and 2 types of power backups. Data is backed up instantaneously within the server and daily on site and off site. Our processors are selected from AMD, not the fastest or most recent, but the ones that have proved high reliability in a server environment. When the capacity of a server reaches 2,000, another server comes online within 24 hours.

4. Why PayPal?

We have selected PayPal as the payment method in order not to store any financial information. Online payments are PayPal's main business. We trust that they can do it more securely than we can. Also, PayPal gives a variety of payment methods; not everyone likes to use credit cards.

5. If I join, can I still use my instant messenger?

Most instant messengers are provided free of charge in order to generate advertising income. Some might have reduced functionality. From our experience, you will not lose your buddies and friends.

6. Compared to other IRC (Internet Relay Chat) chat servers, yours seems restrictive?

We have selected IRC as our chat server due to its power and the freedom it gives the users. Yes, to some our chat server rules might seem restrictive; the chat server rules reflect management's wishes to create a family environment. We welcome all suggestions that would improve the safety of the chat environment. We can only monitor public chat rooms; we cannot and will not monitor the private section of the chat server. Individuals in that section enjoy total privacy.
