Note that you have to comment once to get out of the crammed luggage compartment (stowaway class) and be able to sit in a somewhat more comfortable position in the cabin (economy class). Further advancements into leg room and cocktails will demand more effort on your part. Just start using the forums and create posts.
The forum is the only place you will see ads in Threshold. The forum is the only place we can give you the option to support us and thus not see adsense ads. If you want an adSense -free experience in Threshold you will need a 1st class membership (or developer). This is done either through long dedication in the forums or through one of the support subscriptions. As soon as we have enough subscriptions to survive the year we will remove the adsense ads. Read more about the different classes and what they give you further down on this page.
(we will still have custom - but relevant ads showing - AdSense will be removed for anyone with 1st class)
Want your ad here? We design and customize your ad space at Threshold. Once we have enough ad spots covered we will remove AdSense completely.

About the different classes
The first tier is to avoid spammers and bots. The idea behind the rest is to ease server loads from inactive members and to reward and give more access to the forum after a visible contribution from the member was seen. The normal classes are automatically upgraded to the next when some parameters are reached. We do promote members to higher classes if needed. Any class can be withdrawn at any moment by the Crew or Captains. Misconduct can lead to such a withdrawal. A bad reputation can dump you back to stowaway class. *the classes in the forum does not reflect the ones in the Threshold discord.
A donation of 5USD gives you Business Class.
A donation of 10USD or above gives you 1st class.
Any subscription plan gives you 1st class and thus no adsense ads.
If you want to support "support the cause" but don't want to purchase using the store, you could donate here to help us grow.
