After extensive discussion and beta-testing, Alcor has launched a new discussion forum. We recognize the need for a forum where our members can discuss issues relating to Alcor and cryonics in general. We also recognize the need for a forum where members will feel comfortable exchanging ideas without running into hostile behavior of people who are not interested in advancing the cause of cryonics and life extension.
As a consequence, our forum is accessible to the general public but only Alcor members can create an account after their membership status has been confirmed. Some Alcor members have asked for a private forum that is not accessible to the general public so we have added a private forum.
For Alcor members who prefer to keep their identity private the forum also offers the option of using a pseudonym – pending verification of membership status.
As Alcor will soon release a document about its proposed policies on grandfathering and underfunded cases, this is a good time to register for the forums and participate in the discussion.
We try to approve new account applications as soon as possible but there may be a short delay between registration and membership status verification.
The new Alcor Forums can be found at the following URL: http://www.alcor.org/forums/index.php
