Gauging interest in an ad-free TriRoost experience
I've been considering offering an ad-free TriRoost experience, one way or another. I know some of you have ad blockers (and I also know some of you turn OFF your ad blockers on this site - thank you!), and yes, the ads can be funny at times, so maybe nobody even cares. But I figured I'd see what you all think about it.
There are a few different ways to achieve this, that I can think of:
- take donations in exchange for ad-free browsing, maybe $10 a year or $1/month via Paypal or Patreon etc
- get rid of the ads for everyone, and provide some kind of value-add for donors/patrons (special privileges, a private area, badges, etc)
I guess I only had 2 ideas on how to do this.
Input and suggestions welcome. As long as I'm at least breaking even, I'll be happy.
