A new, private community for UFO witnesses

A new Google Plus Community for UFO Witnesses has been started. If you are a UFO Witness or an experienced and ethical investigator, you are encouraged to join. The whole point is to help people make sense of their experiences and to support their decisions about what to do next.

There are fairly strict rules for this community, intended to promote the privacy of witnesses and to encourage them to tell their stories:

1 - This community is about YOUR experiences and those of other members of the community. No link dumping. Keep it relevant, and be supportive of other witnesses.
2 - All witnesses are to be respected. Ridicule, derision, or sarcasm will not be tolerated. Comments to witness posts should be in the form of questions if at all possible.
3 - Do not ask a witness for their real name or any other information that could reveal their identity.
4 - Do not share witness posts outside this community. That will result in a ban.
5 - No one should ever jump to conclusions.
6 - Please do not take offense if someone carefully and respectfully provides a well-reasoned explanation of your sighting.
7 - Lurkers will be removed (but not banned). Please post or engage with a post in your first 4 weeks.

So, come over and engage with us with us if this sounds like the Community for you.

Questions, Comments, Suggestions for Episode 11?

If you have a well-formed opinion on the topics we address on the show, or have questions for API, or think we can improve the podcast in some way, we need to hear from you. We can even record a short interview with you to put on the air. All honest questions will get an honest answer.

If you have sighted a UFO, and would like us to discuss your sighting on air, then please report the sighting through our reporting system first. After we have looked into it, we may have you on air to talk about your sighting, or the team may discuss it on air if you prefer not to appear.

The Future Best UFO/UAP forum in the internet

It's up to you. We can have UFO discussion forums full of clickbait crap and aimless rants, or we can talk and disagree respectfully about real investigations from a boots-on the-ground perspective. What do you prefer?

So let's start over on Reddit. The mods of /r/UFOs, though well intentioned, are clearly overwhelmed and can't handle all the garbage hurled their way. They can't stop the loud, angry, voluble people from dominating to discussions. We've had the API Case Files subreddit for a while now, but now it's time for the quiet people to step forward and tell their stories without fear of being shouted down. We'll assure that. Give it a try. Let us know what you think
