I'm kinda curious. Has anyone actually bothered to pay for UG Plus yet?

I do not. For I have no means to pay for things online.

I don't think people on UG pay for anything online. They'd download a bear if they could.

Don't have the need for it, I have guitar pro, an adblocker and whatever else they offer doesn't appeal to me.

I do not.

There are free ad-blockers out there, and I don't feel the need for backing tracks. I could see the "Pro" tabs being nice, but I have Guitar Pro and Power Tab, plus I don't mind plain text tabs.


I would support UG in other ways, if it was worth the money, because I've been here long enough to appreciate the site and all of its pre-existing services, but I don't see myself using the paid services enough to warrant paying for them.

Nah. There's better alternatives for everything they offer. I feel bad for them though, they probably worked really hard on this, and it doesn't look like anyone is using it.

This.


I almost feel the need to pay for it for a few months to show that I care enough about the site to support it, but I know I won't use it. At that point, it's just pity money, which is almost worse than not paying at all.


It looks like a great system, but its appeal is limited.

I was going to say something clever but the thought of having a pet bear made me cream my pants. Oh, the possibilities!

This.

Edit: But also, I've never seen the first ad on this site since UG Plus was launched.

I don't see the point for me. I have guitar pro, adblock, and I find it highly unlikely they'd ever make a backing track of a song I'd care about.

I'd imagine it would be great for the uninitiated in the ways of the internet. The ones who don't know about illegally downloading tab programs and browser plugins.

For sure. I thought of that as I was typing. New players, and new members to the site could see the appeal, and use it, but, as the poll shows, pre-existing users aren't really swayed by it. :/

Let's be honest guys. The most hardcore musicians are not pit lurkers and will probably never see this thread. They're the ones that have UG plus and are hiding in the GGAC forum

See, I disagree with this strongly.
Pooppooppoopfuck.

Instead of making it better for the UG plus users, they've made it worse for the free users. That "UG Plus" ad on the front page is just stupid and now you have to sometimes wait 15 seconds for the news page to load.
#33
I have never seen a poll so one-sided before. Usually there are a few funny guys who vote the for the unpopular choice to skew the results.


Somebody probably will now, though...

that's pretty surprising. i though at least a couple people might have.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I clicked on "remove banner" and it sent me to the Ad Free page to buy it.

I feel bad now that UG is trying to make money and not many people are using it. (From the poll results)

Nah, and I don't really plan to. It's not really worth it. I mean, I have TuxGuitar and Firefox with a certain add-on that makes browsing better, all of which is free. While I recognise the effort the UG team put into it, and kind of feel like a dick for not using, everything that it offers can already be had for free, thus, it's kind of just asking for donations.
