What is Cubits.org?
Cubits.org is a Universe of Communities. Each community, called a Cubit, is a self-contained mini-website devoted to the specific interests of that community.

You have probably visited websites devoted to specific subjects. They usually contain forums, a member list, informational databases, file uploads, and the like. Each of these websites were painstakingly created by the website's owner, who devoted hundreds of hours to putting it all together.

I have talked to many people in the past who have told me that they have a great interest in some subject, and would love to make a community website about it, but they don't have the expertise to create it.

Thus, Cubits.org was created to let anybody start their own feature-rich community website. With no technical knowledge required, a person can come to Cubits.org and within minutes have their own community website ready for their members.

Who created Cubits.org?
Cubits.org was created by Dave Whitinger with the assistance of his wife, Trish.

In the mid 1990's, Dave worked for IBM and later Red Hat, working on internet and Linux technologies. In the late 90's he founded Linux Today, the world's largest website devoted to Linux technologies.

He later created Dave's Garden and operated it until January, 2010. In July of 2011 he founded the new gardening site All Things Plants.

Do you charge for this service?
We're not charging anybody for any part of Cubits.org.

Our vision is that we want to allow communities to have a centralized place where they can gather and do whatever it is they want to do.

At the same time, we also want to enable people to start their own business around their cubit.

If you are successful in building a strong community (and we will help you do that!) there is the potential that your cubit can start generating income. The core of the Cubits.org business plan is to have a revenue-sharing system where income produced across the various cubits is shared with the owners of each cubit.

We plan to soon offer cubit owners the opportunity to place relevant and tasteful advertisements on their cubits. There will be no popups or non-relevant advertising permitted anywhere on the site.

Who is responsible for setting policies over each cubit?
The person who creates the cubit automatically becomes the "owner" of that cubit, and ultimately they are responsible for what goes on in their cubit.

If you have a problem inside a cubit, you should contact the administration team of that cubit for assistance. You can always see the name of the owner of the cubit by looking in the right-hand bar.
