Everybody is UniqueAt Altair, your profile is a place to express yourself and share your passions and interests with the community. Our goal is to provide building blocks for users to create a profile that is as unique as they are.
Mindful MembershipsWe don’t think you should feel pressured into maintaining creator subscriptions and therefore, auto-renew is disabled by default. Of course you can enable them on a per channel basis whenever you want to!
Iterative by DesignWe understand the importance of iteration and revisiting things based on feedback and the needs of our users. We’re taking this mindful approach to our current design system that gives us the freedom to change things easily.
From the blogIn order to successfully deliver our mission, a great deal more work is required. We want to set clear expectations with you all, make it easier to find information, and most importantly, make sure that we’re taking our own tenet of Mindfulness into consideration as we move forward.

Flat Creator StructureTiered structures are tied to status. We avoid creating titles or tiers that are not mindful of a creator's mental wellness. We won't have a partnership program.
Opt-in AnalyticsYou are more than the number of followers or concurrent viewers you have. On Altair—as a default—you won't be forced to see them.
No Disruptive AdvertisingVideo advertisements are intrusive. We're building a business model that doesn't depend on the disruption of your experience, or the harvesting of your data.
Natural ExplorationYou and your channel are more than a statistic and we don’t think your metrics should dictate how others discover you. We’d like to imagine our Discovery process feeling more natural and fair.
