Common Questions Answered

1 / What does "becoming a supporter" mean?

"Supporters" are non-voting Members of the association. Depending on your contribution we offer to provide additional services and features on our servers to you as well.

2 / What responsibilities do I have when becoming a supporter?

Other than supporting Acter there are no additional responsibilities you take over by becoming an "Acter supporter", legally or otherwise.
