I hate to have to be negative and to say things that others may not want to hear. You may find the first part boring, but bear with me.
I know that there are people in the Linus Tech Tips community which use the "Linus Forum Tips" app. I know that the majority of people using the app are between the ages of 18 and 24. I know that on any given day, between 2 and 40 people use the app. I know that people on average use the app twice per day. I know that the majority of users are using an old version of Linus Forum Tips instead of the newer updates.
I know all this and yet I didn't know when to take action.
Linus Forum Tips' growth has significantly slowed and is worrying.
User behavior is erratic at best and is unpredictable at worst.
By this point, you're wondering what the punchline is. Well here it is. I want to introduce advertisements into Linus Forum Tips for a few reasons. The first being that this will allow me to spend money on marketing the app more. The second reason is that I can support other apps made by the community by running community ADs in my app. And by doing so, ADs for Linus Forum Tips can also appear in other apps which utilize the community ADs system.
This will most likely be implemented by the end of the year. If you wish to not see ANY Ads, there will be an option to pay to remove Advertisements.
I know this may feel like a stab in the back. And that's why, when the update with this comes around, I will offer 1 month of AD free Linus Forum Tips for existing users. Leading on from this, Windows 10 build 10240 support will be discontinued one month after the upcoming Windows 10 Creators update is released.
Thanks for your patience and co-operation. I know this isn't something you aren't looking forward to. I wouldn't haven't decided to do this if I thought there was another way.
