As this forum continues to evolve, I’m wondering what kind of interest you all have in a Patreon system. Patreon basically allows there to be a supporting member system in exchange for perks. I’m thinking something like $5 a month. The overall benefits for the site would be a few things: I’d no longer be paying out of pocket, and could actually add to the number of features on the forum (we’re on the barebones version of the software).
Now, to be clear, this wouldn’t be a pay-for-access system. Rather, Patreon folk would just have an additional set of features at their disposal, and maybe even help decide the direction of The Den. For example, if we can roll out some new fancy feature, Patreon folk would carry the deciding vote. There’s probably a ton I’m not thinking of right now as well.
Let me know any thoughts on this you might have, and I’m open to ideas as well.
