update 4/15/12. The ad-free process has been completed for the KK Members who paid for this feature. I am also extending this offer until the end of April. Pay $20 for ad removal and save $5 since the cost will be $25 beginning May 1st.
This entry will remain sticky or on the first page of KK for some time.
Our semi-annual donation drive begins now, but with a twist.
I have had a surprisingly number of email requests from KK members asking if they donated a certain dollar amount, could the ads on KK be removed.
Because of that request, I will have this feature implemented by the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 11th.
If you donate at least $20, ads will be removed by April 11th and you won’t see them again until a year from that date at which time you will be able to renew (no auto renewal).
Now all ads will not be removed but the majority of them will be. Ads to be removed will be the ads at the top of any KK page (728x90), ads at the top of right sidebar (300x250), ads in the very right sidebar (160x600) and ads under the first blog post on any KK blog homepage and also below a blog post on any permalink blog page (300x250).
At times, you may see a direct advertiser ad in those places, but they will be hockey related and will not be viewed the vast majority of times.
In order to participate in this, you must be a KK member (register here).
Then, just click on the PayPal button below (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover accepted) and any donation over $20 will enroll you in the mostly ad-free version of KK, which will begin by April 11, 2012.
If for some reason you want to retain the ads and still donate, just make a notation in the donation form that you wish to do so.
Now, if you are not a KK member or are a member and just want to donate any dollar amount ($1, 5, 10, 15, etc.), you can still donate thru the PayPal button below but you mus be a KK member in order to participate in the ad-free version.
once the playoffs start
beginning May 1st, the cost of removing the ads for a year will be $25 so you are getting a discount by enrolling now.
Any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at any time.
One more item, for the Abel to Yzerman fans, I communicated with IwoCPO about this idea and he has assured me he will be back for the next season in full force, meaning you will be reading more of his blogs throughout the year.
