    No, the new owners evidently didn't look back at previous years to see how it was done.

    Or they decided not to promote it too aggressively this year, at least in the open forum, and to instead let the dust settle from the ownership transition. I think that's fairly wise, actually. Aggressive fundraising could easily backfire on a new owner.

    I expect everyone got the same DM's I did, informing of the fundraiser/giveaways.
    There was another this morning.

    I got nothing, but then maybe it's because I already entered a few weeks ago.


    I'm not sure why they wouldn't promote the raffle. I assume they need funding for the site. They can get it from making us look at ads, or somehow ransoming us to pay to avoid ads (both very negative things, IMO), or they can make it a game, where we have a small chance at winning a great guitar, and simultaneously help fund the site we get value from. Seems like a win-win.

    I gladly buy one raffle ticket each year, always have, always will (assuming the site remains usable). But paying just to avoid ads? Never.

    Does the "supporter" flag include ad-free? It doesn't say so on the upgrade page. I hope it does, because when I just now bought mine, my "Ad-Free Member" flag disappeared.

    @moosie, me too on the gladly buy thing.

    I believe “ad-free” is a separate purchase.

    I'm in, though I haven't been around in ages...when the right Tele comes along...;)

    PS: Back along time ago, I actually won a set of p/us's...they wound up on one of my son's Tele's...as loath as I was to give them up, prolly the right place for them...

    Yep, separate. Click on your name at top right of page then account upgrades. At bottom will tell you when ad free expires. I did the ad free and bought 1 chance but I think only one of them is noted with a banner.
