Is Floatplane worth it to you? [Poll]

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I believe Floatplane is worth it.. what about you?

https://polls.ryois.me/is-fp-worth-it/ Vote Here!

Once you're done; here are the results... https://polls.ryois.me/is-fp-worth-it/results/

for people wondering why I didn't use the forum's poll continue reading...
The forums poll is worse than the typeform method...

Typeform also supports different types of questions to be asked which was needed for this poll.

Problem with the poll you can only like FP club or dislike it. There's no middle ground. My biggest problems have been days of dual uploads to FPC and Youtube but asides from CES content that seems to have gone down a bit.

yeah, that's one of the additional perks but normally they aren't much. The FPC exclsuive vlogs about what they are trying to work on have died off a lot. Last thing we got was constant youtube live failures about the tampons vs pads thing. 9_9

There's a build in poll functionality in the LTT Forums. I know you stated this, but I'd think it's better to give the developers a better insight as to what specific features you'd want in order to use it.

 

As far as the poll goes, I'm all for FPC.

I would want date selection, better graphing, and such.

It looks like it was made to look nice, not to give a good user experience. Unfortunately not an unusual occurrence in the world we live in.

I already paid them monthly 10$ because idk why. So it made 0 difference to me. I think for them, it's a great decision, especially with all that youtube is doing to try to commit seppuku. 

think I started donating forever ago (when forum donation probably mattered more to their bottom line) because I agreed with Linus's potential to bring an enthusiasm for PCs and tech to a young audience, and I supported that. I didn't ever think reviews were particularly in depth or of use to me. Some years later they're doing exactly that, and I'm happy with how they've grown. 

Or I wanted a silver rank to shitpost with a shiny rank idk 


muh specs 

Gaming and HTPC (reparations)- ASUS 1080, MSI X99A SLI Plus, 5820k- 4.5GHz @ 1.25v, asetek based 360mm AIO, RM 1000x, 16GB memory, 750D with front USB 2.0 replaced with 3.0  ports, 2 250GB 850 EVOs in Raid 0 (why not, only has games on it), some hard drives

Screens- Acer preditor XB241H (1080p, 144Hz Gsync), LG 1080p ultrawide, (all mounted) directly wired to TV in other room

Screens- 3  ASUS VN248H-P IPS 1080p screens mounted on a stand, some old tv on the wall above it.

when you finally have some spare time, double booking is the best way to fill it xD

Also while I love the idea of floatplane and may eventually get in for the sake of supporting the channels I love, I don't have the money now and seeing videos beforehand doesn't do much for me. I'm fine with waiting, personally, but that's just me

Of course you'd still need paid membership (Zero ad's on FPC and they host it themselves. LMG needs money off it somehow.).

 

Right now the biggest problem IMHO is they removed the 1 year sub option where you pay in full for a year and get a small discount for doing so. Luke said that option will be brought back when the actually website goes up since right now it's handled only by Paypal I think. I know they are getting an actual payment processor though and that alone is worth it.

Anyway, im in floatplane cause possible linusMediaTips business insides.

And also i think its the best way to support content creators i enjoy.

Wish you could make any monthly/yearly payment with minimum ammount (not like i would pay more atm, but still).

Will see this in release version, i guess.

And while @LinusTech is here.

You are using paypal, right? What about other payment systems? Heard paypal is buggy.
