    Give me the ads, Eric.  Whatever it takes. 

     

    You've done a heckuva job for so long now, how could I be anything but grateful?

      I think your first enhancement is to make the donate button more prominent. Big grin

      Where is the donate button? I've never found one!

        I'd be willing to pay something to NOT have to see ads.  Keep a tiered pricing membership in mind.

          Thats fantastic Eric! Wish you all the best! You will definitely have my support!

            Your dedication to the site has been a wonder to watch, and we've all benefited from it, for which we owe you a debt of gratitude--and maybe more!

             

            Of course you should do whatever it takes to keep RA viable, though again I find it refreshing that you've been so open and and honest and are trying to make it as painless as possible for your users, who are robbing you of your sleep!

             

            Many happy wishes on your upcoming wedding. May you and your lucky bride be blessed with many happy years together.

             

            Me too!

              Awesome!  Live the dream Eric!  I'll also commit to paying for any apple app you come up with.  Thanks my man! 

               

              Oh and good luck on the wedding!  Tell that lovely fiance of yours that the Thunder says hi!  Miss you guys.

                So you're not working for free any more? Darn you! Wink

                 

                Just, please, none of those ads that autoplay audio. Man I hate those.

                  I'll also commit to paying for any apple app you come up with.

                   

                  YES!

                    I always felt that the people who whined about the ads simply didn't have an appreciation of the business model, weighing what they were getting at absolutely no cost, to its incredible value.  For heaven's sake, bring us the ads. 

                     

                    You have been a rockstar for us.  Best wishes to you.  Spareribs

                      I wish you the best.   I like running advertisements.  That is probably why I own so many running shoes.

                        But perhaps a membership option to be ad free (and maybe some other benefits?)

                         

                        I like the optional ads idea.

                         

                        Best wishes, and heartfelt thanks!

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                          BTW folks, if you click on the ads occasionally, Eric : ) will get paid...

                            Ads will be fine.  And I'd be happy to pay a membership fee.  I get incredible value from this site.

                             

                            Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.  I wish both of you all the best in your life together.  

                              Awesome!  Live the dream Eric!  I'll also commit to paying for any apple app you come up with.  Thanks my man!

                               I would pay for an apple app as well (as long as it was tied to a log on id and not the unique device). Don't mind the ads either as long as they fit with the site(don't really care too much about viagra). I would also pay an annual membership fee. Maybe you should consider adding the membership fee for some the the improvements you are going to add in the future (i.e. the training plan stuff). Maybe it's worth you checking out your competition and see what they are doing. Training peaks comes to mind for me. Good luck. Seems like you have a ton of support though.
