I just got one PMed, but something irks me. I'm apparently supposed to 'beta test' it, but they're asking me to pay? Since when is testing buggy software something you have to pay for?

Am I missing something here?

It's to test the payment system. It's a quarter for 2 weeks, geez.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?

There should be an option for 2 weeks / $0.25.

Then again, the entire format of the thing changed a few days ago, so that part of the testing might be over. I wouldn't know, I was a free beta tester >_>


I just got the PM today. meh.

I got a email. You get a three day trial for each service and you can just end your subscription before the trial ends then you wont get charged, I think. To be honest, I don't know if I like it that much. Maybe in a few month and more tabs and such get added, but as of now I don't think I'm going to subscribe.

Never said they were. I'm not all "OH MY GAWD WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH UG BLAH BLAH BLAH," I was confused about why they wanted to charge ten bucks for beta testing. Apparently, some people only have to pay a quarter. Clear?

Yeah, only the Ad blocking part is international, which Adblock plus really makes useless anyway.

Yeah, I got an invite. Since I only have like, 20 bucks in my bank account atm, I'm not sure I want to spend money on the features until they're a little more fleshed out (it sounds like the content is pretty limited right now). If it was part of that 25 cent fee thing, I would definitely give it a go, but I think I'm a little too late for that.

Yeah, that's right. I'm a stingy motherf***er.
#26
TS they want you to pay a small amount so they can check if the paying system works.
It's only $.25, not exactly a huge amount

If you don't have a credit card, just get a prepaid one
#27
Ok to clear up the 25 cents thing. For the private beta, they had some people use it for only 25 cents to work out the billing system. That beta already happen and only a few people were in that. Now they are opening the beta up to more people. A lot of people are getting invites for a beta if you sent a request for an invitation. The people who are just getting in the beta now don't have any special offers besides a 3 day free trial.

I was one of the very first people to get invited as a beta tester. And I was directly invited by a mod/admin (I have no idea which one, but the invite told me so).


I just want you all to know that, because it boosts my ego knowing I'm so popular.

That was directed at everyone whining about that in particular, including people I invited who made a big deal out of the $0.25.

Yes, it would appear we are the "second wave" of Beta testers. Or maybe the people that got it for free were just alpha testers. Regardless, I guess anyone that got it today has to pay now.

The free beta testers were people who won that Christmas competition, and a few people hand-picked by mods/admins. Each of us got 10 invite codes, which we could send to people so they could be testers, though they only got 3 days for free, and after that they had to do the .25/2 weeks thing, so the payment system could be tested.

The more you know!

I signed up to be a beta tester, got an invite, and then I'm like "wat" when they're asking me to pay to beta test.

By the way, this was over a month ago.

Only part of it I like is the ad-free, because the ads literally cripple my use of the site (though I don't think I should pay just so I can use the site as it's been intended for years). The UG tabs thin is basically Guitar Pro/TuxGuitar, and backing tracks are easy enough to find online for free anyway.
