Again, thanks to everyone for voting in the poll and posting in this thread, it has been very useful for us to know that most people are aware of it and also that people start to become aware of it after they have stuck around the site for a bit.
In regards to the balance of how AtLarge is promoted on WBB (what a lot of the discussion in this thread is about) we've always worked hard to balance the commercial needs of AtLarge and the values of WBB and to be fair I think we do a pretty good job. You can discuss whatever products you want on the site and you are also open to have your own opinions about AtLarge products. It just so happens that we have some very loyal and passionate customers aswell as some very good products, which is why AtLarge products are heavily discussed on here

yes, as I was an HCT - 12 beta tester...
I've always been aware that there's a connection between the two, but I didn't realise until a bit later that they were the same company. On the otherhand, it's not as "in your face" as on that other site...

I wasn't aware that AtLarge and WBB were the same company until I made my first purchase from AtLarge. The shipping was super fast by the way. Thanks for that.

Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.
Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

I did not know when I first started "lurking" around and reading, but put two and two together later when i was reading some of the supplement portion of the site. I did not even look at the supp section for a while after starting to post here and read?
I didn't even know I had an account here until I got the email for the mass PM.
I've been here for a while but I'm pretty sure I knew from the beginning that WBB and ALN were the same.
It's kind of odd that there's no 'true' mention of this on either website (aside from this topic confirming it). From what I gathered before my doubts were confirmed was that AtLarge become a 'sponsor' for this website and helped contribute funding for maintenance of WBB in exchange for advertising space. It seems like this is just is more of a 'sub' company to AL.
Does it make any real difference? No, but better clarification never hurts.
I've always known, but I feel the affiliation could be strengthened with better marketing on the respective sites. WBB does a great job with the misc banners for the ALN products. Is it important that we know that both are owned by the same person (Chris)?
From a business aspect, I feel that if you are going to fund a website(s) though a product or exterior income, I would take advantage of whatever marketing strategy to promote said product. Customer side: I'm pretty selective about what products I use, so seeing ALN only on WBB helps remind me that I need a new tub of Nitrean, Opticen, etc...
The ALN site shows no affiliation hints with WBB (or even a link?) I feel if you have the ALN product out there in magazines, competitions (or on a competitor's attire), or what have you, you should at least see how simply linking WBB on the ALN site will draw traffic here.
The way I see it, ALN is just a place where I would buy my product and leave. If I saw there were discussions boards from people who use said products, I may be more intrigued to check it out and join.
Just a quick thought.
