Hope it's not too personal but I was just wondering how lackattack is paying for all this. Should we be expecting advertisement banners any time soon? By all means...do whatcha gotta do. Seems like a lot of work just to please a small community of internet nerds.

... I was under the impression that this a "free trial" type of thing, and we're all play-testers, more or less.

... Once it's all golden and perfect, he'll (Lack) probably start charging for access. A great way to build a small on-line business and let a lot of folks have some roaring fun in the bargain!

... I could be wrong, and if it's business Lack might be wisest to keep it to himself for the time being. Hell, I'd be happy to pay a few hundred yen a month for this kind of fun! 8)

I was hoping it was gonna be a donations run site, I don't know how long it could function if you had to pay to access. You probably wouldn't get that many new people joining, at least I don't think.

Lack's Plan

Postby max is gr8 on Sat Feb 11, 2006 9:35 am

Lacks plan is to charge for a membership which gives unlimted games and other options. He only expects 'bout 2% to pay but that would cover the costs so those who want unlimited games you have to pay.

... It's a great site, and my turns are one of the highlights of my miserable days. :roll:

... I guess I'd fall in that 2%, so long as the price was agreeable.

Since I hate freestyle, I think I would probably donate so that I can make more than a few moves a day. That is, unless I get my new computer and I get distracted by games with pretty graphics :-p.

Not saying I would not pay but I joined in early January more or less at the startup and can tell ya from being member of other stuff the place will die with a pay for play

This place has grown fantastically since start-up and it take allot of people to keep a game site going --- only 2% staying is not enough to get a game going and interest will drop like a rock.

Advertising seems like the way to go.

Nothing's going to change for free membership. The only (major) difference for premium membership that I've seen so far is that you have no restrictions on the number of games you play, whereas free players will still only have the five game limit.
