ABT Announces our first Contest – “Name our Mascot” . . . Enter Free for your chance to Win great HW Prizes!
After you have signed up at ABT forums, feel free to start or join a discussion already in progress. ABT forum is the best place on the Internet to freely speak your mind – with minimal moderation and no “site point of view” imposed on anyone! Instead, everyone has real freedom balanced with personal responsibility. That means that everyone is their own moderator and is empowered to block those that they deem trolls as a “foe” and you will never see their posts again. It is a Great Experiment that you are invited to become part of. In time, ABT forum will transform into a 3D world powered by a game engine while staying true to its forum roots.
In the meantime, you are very welcome to join our growing lively membership, name our mascot, and maybe win some nice hardware. It is all free to enter and join.
Of course, there are always legal details and fine print as below:
