    My new website venture LVL39.COM is up and running! This new community is a partnership between myself and a friend in the UK. I'll warn you, it's a bit 'different', but if you enjoy alt news, conspiracy, ufo, science, philosophy, then head over and sign up. It's early days, so we need people to sign up, post messages and give us tons of feedback on how to improve things (such as recommendations for forums categories and content, etc). This site is run under the photocentric ltd umbrella with my other sites. My aim is to bring a few more communities online, add revenue streams and rely less on APUG.

    For those wondering about the name, there have always been some rumors of the US Military having 38levels above top secret, so we settled on the name LVL39 :smile:

    http://www.lvl39.com

    Thanks!
    Sean

    P.S. now that this build is finally wrapping up (about a month of work) my partner will be handing most of the LVL39 day to day and I'll be back in full for APUG.

    Maybe I can get some answers about those black helicopters hanging over my house that no one else admits to seeing. Good luck with the site Sean!!

    Interesting timing now with the new TV show "V" just released. I LOVE THIS SHOW. But I don't have a life.
    Best of luck with this Sean.

    Plenty of overlap with APUG, the Trent Farm UFO photos were taken on an Universal Roamer I folder. I am sure that the fact that it is hard NOT to make double exposures on this camera had nothing to do with it... ;-)

    Haha, thanks for the comments guys. Yeah this site should be interesting to say the least. As with all forums it may take a while for it to get rolling. We just approaching 50 registered in about 2 days. I think 200 is where things finally start to kick in and slowly build from there.. No black Suburbans parked across the street yet :smile:

    Good luck Sean! It will be good for the conspiracy theorists here on APUG to have somewhere else to post what the voices are telling them :D

    Ok an update for anyone interested.. we're still kickin. Have just completed and launched a new homepage today:

    http://www.lvl39.com

    We are slowly finding our audience/niche. 1-2 registrations a day which is on target.. once we hit 2-300 users things should snowball. My partner is now doing most of the legwork posting content and finding members. Hopefully things will be hopping in about 6 months time :smile:
