Backstage is a limited-access forum section that is intended as a reward for people that contribute in special ways to the TF community.
What does it contain?

- News Preview: I'll write about what articles I'm working on / getting ready to publish and show teaser pics, clues etc
- Stats: Interesting stats about the website: traffic, forum activity etc, updated weekly / monthly.
- TF Daily / Trivia: funny / weird / scary things I notice on the site etc. Also funny / weird / hateful Emails / PMs I get, requests, offers etc. All are anonymous of course.
- Your take on this: I'll ask feedback on changes or new features I want to add to the site.
- AMA: got a question related to the site, me or anything in between? Guaranteed response.
- Tools: software, services or websites I use in building the site or writing the articles.
- a section where members are free to discuss whatever they want, with very little moderating.
