What's the Difference between Paid and Free Participation?

[Paid] Case Detectives, our paid members, see new evidence before anyone else. As a Case Detective, you can interact directly with our detectives through our members-only Question/Answer page. You and other Case Detectives can post questions and our detectives will provide answers to help you solve the case. Case Detectives also have exclusive access to the Evidence Search Engine, which allows you to quickly locate all evidence items related to a particular topic. In addition to these special member features, Case Detectives have access to all information, the Viewer Comment Area, and the e-mail newsletter presented to the free viewers.

[Free] Case Viewers, our non-paying viewers, pay nothing to examine the available evidence files or to post theories and questions in the viewer comments area. Evidence is not issued to Case Viewers until after Case Detectives have reviewed it and not all information is available for free. If you sign up as a Case Viewer, an e-mail newsletter will notify you when new evidence is released. Registration is not required to participate.
