Why is replit adding MORE, MORE, and MORE ads to upgrade?
ReplitJudge

So, they added an ad in the homepage so we see the ad every single time we visit replit

Also, they added a button below the new repl button to upgrade

For the users that already upgraded, replit gives them offers to extend their plan ( saw it in someone elses screenshot )

Then recently i noticed if you tap the toggle with the earth symbol near repls, it will give a popup!!!

Hey replit team, i understand you need money but do you really need to go this far??? Not all of us can and want to upgrade so please dont keep persuading us to upgarde its kind of annoying for me

Also im speaking out because nobody else seems to complain... or maybe you deleted the posts?

Ps yes you can unlist or even delete this post / account and there's nothing i can do about it, but that just gives replit a bad reputation tbh

My question is WHY are you adding so many ads?

Also if it isnt obvious enough please stop the ads

I hope the replit team will respond truthfully. Thanks

The earth symbol is for making repls private. Clearly this is a hacker only thing -- so that is why.

And for all the other ads, you can literally click the x button, and it won't come back again.

Please, don't overreact.

ReplitJudge

@Coder100 you cant click the x button for the upgrade button and the teams ad, which i find annoying as you need to scroll down every single time visiting replit

Also am i overreacting for speaking out about this? Its okay if you dont find them annoying but i do so im complaining

People seem to assume that replit is profitable, which at this stage in replit's history they are probably not as they have not been acquired by a massive company and running repls takes a lot of money. So go ahead, advertise so you can get profitable and then hire more developers and create a great service.

I thing it's because the replit team is still trying to get more money.

And to make it worser Repl added an EXTRA upgradebutton.

@BearCoder01 I forget one ad

Don't overreact you can hit the x the "world" thing is something you can only do with hackers, so it tells you that, what did you expect it not to tell you anything and leave people confused on why it doesn't work? The extend plan goes away if you hit the x. And how would you upgrade without the upgrade button. Besides the adds (which you don't like). This is why no one complains. Replit is not taking the ads "to far".
P. S. I do understand you trying to get you word out don't take this in a rude way.

ReplitJudge

@cuber1515 im aware you can hit the x for the extend plan and popup ads, also you can click Pricing all the way down which will lead to the same site as the upgrade button

Im pretty sure the upgrade button was deliberately placed directly below the new repl button so users misclick it when wanting to make a new repl

P. S. I do understand you trying to get you word out don't take this in a rude way.

I am literally trying not to be rude because i know every one needs money, but this time its getting a bit too far as i remember replit without any of these ads

Wait, Replit has a premium plan? I've never seen that before, that's so cool!

ReplitJudge

@SixBeeps wait, you dont get the ads???

The only advertisement that I would say is a bit annoying is the one for teams, but personal opinions aside, replit is a growing business and needs money to feed its needs. If you really feel that the ads are excessive, you could leave some a comment on the replit feedback page.

ReplitJudge

@IMayBeMe i appreciate your answer, the reason i didnt comment in the replit feedback page (replit.canny.io) is because you need to signup to comment

Every company wanting money does this… as a company (like reputl) grows so does the greed. Replit was a sorta small company before April, since then they’ve added a lot more features

ReplitJudge

@FloCal35 thank you for your answer, i agree it could be just greed
