Give the Gift of Slashdot

CmdrTaco posted more than 10 years ago | from the getting-on-the-beg-train dept.

Christmas Cheer 334

It's time to blatantly plug a recent addition to Slashdot's Subscription System: just in time for the holidays, you can now give a subscription to any other user. You have the choice to give your gift anonymously, or take credit for your fabulous selfless generosity. If that isn't enough, we still have assorted Slashdot Merchandise available at ThinkGeek... the more T-Shirts you buy, the less often you need to do laundry.

Buy a slashdot subscription to support the site. dont buy one to get rid of ad's.

Note: you can modify junkbuster to only show the banners you want to see... I only see an AD when a thinkgeek ad pop's up. (hint: AD id field)

You can buy a subscription for yourself or a gift subscription for another user. Payment options include PayPal and credit-card.

Recipients of gift subscriptions will be notified of your purchase through email.
Buy Pages for CmdrTaco
Buy Gift Subscription for UID

For gift subscriptions only:
Who do you want the recipient to be told the gift is from?
(30 character limit, defaults to your username if nothing is entered)

You have paid for a total of 2000 pages and so far 185 have been used up (10 today). Thank you for supporting Slashdot! We appreciate your contribution very much.

(We use Greenwich Mean Time to decide where "today" begins and ends. Your day may vary.)

We give you some control over deciding where to suppress ads. New subscribers default to suppressing ads everywhere except on comments pages. For accounting purposes, we'd appreciate if you had at least one type of ad being suppressed.

Ads No Ads
Homepage (Plum: see the Mysterious Future!)
Stories (Plum: reading Mysterious Future stories)
Comments
Set "No Ads" anywhere, and you'll get ads disabled for free on other pages too. (More info.)

Optionally, if you want to make sure you don't use up your subscription too quickly, you may set a limit of the maximum number of ads you will suppress per day. Note you cannot set a limit on the number of times Michael will enter you from behind. Beyond this daily limit, pages will not count against your subscription (and ads will begin to appear again). Enter the value here, or 0 to disable the limit, or blank to use the default value of 10: Note that setting this value between 1 and 9 will disable some plums.

If you have any questions or concerns about billing, ad display, or other subscription-related issues, please contact subscriptions@slashdot.org. If your question is about your daily headlines email, you can edit that at http://slashdot.org/my/messages. For a list of subscriber-only benefits, see the FAQ.

If that isn't enough, we still have assorted Slashdot Merchandise available at ThinkGeek... the more T-Shirts you buy, the less often you need to do laundry.

Not to mention that once you own enough t-shirts, you can start a pile in the corner. As you remove a dirty t-shirt, you through it on top. When you need a new one, you take from the bottom. The weight of all the t-shirts on top pressure cleans the ones toward the bottom. Once you acheive a critical mass of t-shirts in your cleaning queue, you will never have to do laundry again.

Your paying more than for the content. Slashdot is more than just content it is in itself a community. That community thrives on the existence of Slashdot and the news that otherwise could just pass by alot of us on a daily basis.

The idea that slashdot is just a linking system is false in its approach, as it also is a commenting and journalling system that allow for more exploration of the topics than the original article itself.

There are similar systems for the original content, and each of them as well has their own community, and what it comes down to is you pay to ensure that the community will exist in the future. It is just a way to show your support.

Re:Why? (1)

Ageless (10680) | more than 10 years ago | (#7670482)

~50 posts, and this is the first one I've seen that isn't ringing the tired old "why pay for the cow when the milk is free" bell.

I'm happy to be a subscriber. The fact that I'm writing and you're reading means that Slashdot is of value to both of us. Do the trolls expect some angel to pay for Slashdot's bandwidth with manna from Heaven?

I, too, like the quality ads. I click more Slashdot ads than any other site's ads. Still not enough for a post-bust business model, though. $5 every few months is a small price to pay for this level of high-tech information/annoyance/entertainment.

I think it would help the Open Source developer community if they were granted a gift subscription to /. . The content in Slashdot would be invaluable in their daily research, as informed individuals share their experiences and insights. It would also alleviate the tedium that permeates their lives when they get to follow the insight GNAA, TEH SPOKE, and Subject Line trolls.

So don't delay and support your local Open Source developer, since you never know when you need that Ogg Vorbis support in your favorite application!

I've said this before, but Slashdot doesn't know how to listen. You need money? Set up an Ebay-like auction system here.

You have a huge, loyal audience. A ton of people go through here everyday. They all have tons of gadgets, computers to sell, Batman dollies to shill. You have excellent (?) programmers - why keep tweaking Slash code? that's not making you money. build an auction system, and it will be a service to the community and keep you from begging. What a bunch of idiots you are. You're like Netscape, who waited too long and could have been like Yahoo, and blew it.

And put up classifieds, and maybe user group lists, where slash'ers in cities can meet. The Slash code is done enough, do something productive now. "Journals" won't make you money.

Go look at craigslist.com - see how they build their community. Spend 2 weeks analysing ebay in depth, then start building - you'll make mistakes, but start coding. look at some of the pre-built auction systems and learn. didn't Phil Greenspun's TCL system have an auction and classified system - download, learn the db schema, and do something practical.

what morons. not a drop of sense.

the more T-Shirts you buy, the less often you need to do laundry.

Man, I own plenty of t-shirts. You want to really help me not have to do laundry? Sell slashdot brand underwear and socks in bulk. Every laundry cycle, that's what I run out of first. Or am I the only one?

(Yeah, slashdot undergarments, I'm sure the ladies dig that....)

Not News! (-1, Flamebait)

Shame on you Taco. That post is an ad, not editorial content. It does not belong in the story queue. Totally self-serving.
