Ok im sure most people on this site have noticed that ever since UG Plus was released they advertised that if you payed monthly, you would not get and ads/ popups while on UG... But ever since then has anyone noticed how we get twice as many ads ever since that came out? every page that i got at least i get 1 popup add when i didnt before. so that leads up to my question. WHAT THE HELL UG.

First person on UG to be a grammar nazi and use the correct form of "your" in the correct context.

That's really low, warning for that. It's a legal, free, open source alternative (coded by an independent developer) to UG's product, which frankly, is a waste of money. I understand how UG is a business and businesses need money, but if UG just stopped the retarded video ads that block half the screen, I really wouldn't have any problems with typical banners. They were actually kind of interesting and gave the page some decoration.

Ya, the rollover ads are annoying as tits but I don't have to deal with any type of ads what with that adblock plus and whatnot.

A website this size costs money. Deal with the ads, or pay $2 a month. Jesus christ...

At the time of posting, this site has 1,038,639 threads. Not sure if that's including locked threads and dead threads. 1,901,774 members from all over the world, the average of which, to my count, seems to be 1,000 online at any given time. 20,817,422 posts. A lot of those are probably image macros, giant screen-strechers or gifs or other bandwidth eaters. Probably more than one of each of that has them, which is probably more than half of that giant number, and of course quoting the above post doubles the bandwidth that post ate.

If that were all, this wouldn't be a cheap website to run.

It also has probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions of tabs, a profile for each one of those near 2,000,000 members, a lot of whom - myself included - make liberal use of the MP3 uploader. Blogs, groups, also with their own forums, images, MP3's, blogs, everything. Interviews, lessons, videos, however much they're paying Slash.

And this isn't including paying the employees. Altogether, UG is a gigantic bandwidth magnet, and a fucking expensive site to keep running at all, let alone as smoothly as it does.

And you know what? We're getting it for fucking free. Zero dollars, zero cents. The payment plans are optional. Do you have any idea how easily a website this expensive to maintain could justify going pay-only?

Stop bitching about a goddamn ad here and there before the staff decide that they don't want to deal with whiny free users with entitlement issues anymore and turn off the ads, as well as the free access.
