Thanks a lot for acknowledging this! smile.gif

Yes - we figured your mailboxes are already full with all the information you need about acne and viagra (I unfortunately get way more information about this than I need! sad.gif )

GMC should be a place where you can focus on practicing and interacting - we don't want to destroy that atmosphere with ads!

For some reason I don't recieve any of such "spam" anymore - I don't know what has happened. Couple of years back I got quite a lot. Now all I get are those: "Hello, I am Mr. GAROESRE from South Africa and I wanna share my money with you" mails. And even those go to the "unwanted mails" by them self.

Now that you are here, Kris - can you tell how many paying members there are at GMC? smile.gif

Could afford a good amount of gear with those money though. Of course, it will probably be you ending up paying $1.000.000 to Dr. Mbwuamba. So I hope no one of you GMC'ers are fooled into any of this! wink.gif

I don't know why there isn't advertising on this site. Wouldn't it help raise some more money? GMC probably doesn't need it much, but I don't really mind a bit of advertising.

Ads would LOOSE the site money as less people would visit the site and sign up, no question.

Yes, the fact that members pay to join is a huge determiner of the quality of the community I think - other free sites that advertise fare a lot worse.

Of course, Kris could supplement the sites income with ads but has chosen not to - not least I think because they would annoy us all, and he is building this for the members and to be a cool place to hang out, not to maximise the money it generates!

I'm very happy the way it is. Thanks for not spamming us. That is a courtesy I expect as a paying custumer.

QUOTE (JuanMV @ Jul 12 2008, 07:06 PM) *
If I were Kris, I would take any advertisement offer in a second. Don't forget that this is a company, and we members pay for GMC's services. Having sponsorships or advertisements from important guitar companies or whatever could also help GMC in terms of recognition, publicity, etc., therefore attracting more new members. And if the company makes more money, it can add more servers and improve its services even better.



Name one. wink.gif

I for one would leave imidiatly if this site was littered with spam.
Otoh I wouldn't notice because of adblock and noscript ohmy.gif laugh.gif blink.gif

I honestly don't see a huge problem with an ad or two. No need for all the pop-ups and what not. But why not put an ad on the side of each video lesson? At least for those who aren't members or something. Make it so that if you purchase a membership, you don't get any ads. I'd say that's acceptable.
