#@&! THESE ANNOYING ADS
If you're visiting this page, there's a good chance that you find ads on websites as annoying as I do. UkuTabs, and shortly after that MandoTabs, were born as a way to share my passion with others and its main purpose remains the sharing of knowledge freely with its users. Although I try to incorporate the ads as good as possible, without being too obtrusive, when navigating the website you will see several ads scattered across the pages. Why?
In short, maintaining a website costs money and the contribution from the ads are meant to help me with these costs. Definitely when UkuTabs and MandoTabs were raising in popularity it was quite a financial challenge. At this moment there are tens of thousands of registered users, millions of visitors each month and a database of several gigabytes with all of the resources.
The main costs are:
- Domain: the cost of keeping the name of the website
- Hosting: the cost of keeping MandoTabs online
These are the bare minimum costs for keeping MandoTabs online. Continued maintenance, development, writing guides and adding songs is done out of the passion that I share for the ukulele.
The bare server costs run into the thousands per year, excluding my own spent time and side costs. The ads help take some of the sting out of that cost.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Quite recently I've made a Patreon. This offers an independent and off-site way for me to manage subscriptions and engage with premium users. You need a (free) Patreon account. After subscribing through Patreon, send me a message with your MandoTabs username and Patreon email through the contact from or on Patreon. After verifying your subscription, I will upgrade your account to MandoTabs Premium Member status within 24 hours!
Independent of the monthly amount you choose to pay to support MandoTabs, all ads from MandoTabs.com will be removed when logged in. Every little bit is incredibly appreciated! You can cancel at any time, no refunds.
