New Feature: Ad-Free Subscriptions to LGF

LGF • Views: 44,520

I’m excited to announce a new feature; starting today, if you subscribe to LGF through Paypal for $10 a month, all of the advertisements on all LGF pages will be turned off.

This isn’t just a cosmetic improvement; to display those ads from Google Adsense and Amazon, we have to make several calls to external web servers, which take quite a bit of time. And if those servers are slow or offline, it can cause the entire LGF page to load more slowly or even time out on rare occasions.

When you view our site with advertisements turned off, every page loads more quickly; it’s a very noticeable speed boost. (And as the designer of this mess, I have to say it looks a lot nicer too without the visual clutter.)

So, for the very low price of about 33 cents a day (less than the cheapest cup of Starbucks coffee), you can read LGF without the ads, at super-charged speed.

In order to enable this feature, you will also need to have an account registered at LGF; that’s how our code knows that you’re a Paypal subscriber. Registration is now open, and will remain open except for maintenance.

Here’s the link to subscribe at Paypal. Sign up now to start surfing LGF without ads right away!

Important: after you subscribe, please use the contact form in our left sidebar to let me know your registered LGF username, so I can enable your subscription flag. (I’m working on making this procedure more automatic, but for now I’ll be doing it manually. Update: The process is now automated! See below.)

UPDATE at 9/13/10 11:29:19 am:

Here’s a list of all the ads you won’t be seeing if you subscribe:

  • The top banner ad next to the logo
  • The right sidebar “skyscraper” ads
  • The two Blogads slots in the right sidebar
  • The 300x250 ad after the first post on the front page, and after the post on each individual page
  • The Amazon interstitial ads
  • The bottom Amazon banner
  • The “partners” ads at the bottom of the left sidebar
  • The “sponsored links” at the bottom of the right sidebar
  • The ad for the LGF Cookbook

Some testimonials from subscribers:

It works!!! I can load a several 100 post thread in an instant, well worth 30 cents a day.

Gone! The ads are gone!

Wow. That’s great.

Worth it, folks, it’s really really worth it!

A mere pittance brings you freedom!

It’s lovely. I thought it was all the videos and something about my “plugin-container” that made things slowish sometimes, but clearly the ads were contributing.

ausador wrote:

Yep, the page loads much, much faster. (And this is while I am running two iterations of Convertxtodvd and a torrent download), even with the computer being very “laggy” the page loaded probably three times as fast as it usually does.

Hey Charles, the improvment in speed and visual impact that comes with a subscription is very nice. Thank you, good sir! :-)

UPDATE at 10/26/10 5:24:46 pm:

Ad-free viewing is now automatic when you subscribe! For more information, see: Tech Note: Automatic Ad-Free Subscriptions.
