I would pay for a movie ticket to watch that Lamoureux shootout goal on repeat for two hours. #USA
@omaha1973 Clearing cookies doesn’t work anymore as of mid-January. But there are more free stories now, so maybe many readers didn’t even notice? Plus, that was always a pretty small segment anyway: People who read a lot of stories AND argued they weren’t getting any value from it.
@ImaWildTroy I'm *actually* curious about this, btw. Just starting some research on this exact topic.
@ImaWildTroy What about answering a survey question once per day? Do you feel that's equivalent to a video ad? Better/worse? Related: What's the roadblock to buying a subscription? Price? Not a frequent enough reader? Also, what's an amount you'd spend if there was a pay-per-article option?
@maggies0023 Why's that? Until recently, everyone got five free stories each month. The new program makes the even more stories free to all readers all the time. 5 or so stories each day are marked for subscribers only. The rest are free in exchange for an occasional survey question answer.
