Premium Memberships - Play With NO ADS!
Unfortunately, the reality of this web site is that it requires a lot of server resources to keep things running smoothly. Every time you start a game, load a page or even just submit a word to be checked, you're making a series of calls to both our web server and database server. These amount to literally millions of hits every day. This sort of a web application requires a robust hosting solution, otherwise things would grind to a halt quickly, and that'd be no fun for anyone!
As a result we've had to implement the banner, skyscraper and text advertisements you see peppered through the site. We've strived to keep these ads as "out of the way" as possible so that they won't interfere with game play, but yes, we realize they're distracting and, well, sometimes just plain irritating.
Site WITH Regular Membership
So, for those of you who have been asking for such a feature, we're now implementing PREMIUM MEMBERSHIPS. For as little as 11¢ a day, you can upgrade your existing account to a premium membership via a simple Paypal or Google Checkout transaction. Once activated, your premium account will keep all advertisements off the site for as long as you remain logged into your account. This means:
- - Faster page load times (great for those with slow internet connections!)
- - A larger, cleaner playing area on your screen (great for those with small monitors!)
- - Fewer distractions from flashing or provocative advertisements (great for those who hate distractions!)
Site WITH Premium Membership
A Premium Membership will not change gameplay in any way, nor will it confer extra points, bonus words, or any other benefit in regards to competitive play. You will, however, get that fuzzy, warm feeling in your stomach knowing you're helping to support a site you love to use. Oh, and you'll get a neat little star icon next to your name to let folks know that you're a Premium, contributing member.
Folks are more than welcome to play with regular accounts as they always have. You will never have to pay a cent to play on Cryptograms.org. Premium memberships are just an option for users who, for whatever reason, really just don't want to see advertisements while they're playing.
Limited Time Offer!
For a limited time, we're offering a free, full-color Puzzle Baron mousepad to anyone who starts a new 12-month premium membership (or renews an existing membership for 12 months) during the month of April. This high-quality, extra-large mousepad (a $10 value) will be shipped to you free of charge anywhere in the U.S. or Canada.
Just email us with your name and address after you've completed your purchase and it'll be in the post to you within a week!
