In post 29, mith wrote:Money is very tight right now. Baby formula is expensive. The good news (as far as mafiascum is concerned) is that we aren't too far off breaking even for the year-to-date: $917.08 in donations (less fees), -$990.00 in server fees.

In related news, I am toying with the idea of creating a Patreon account, or other subscription-based service. I kinda feel like if I do Patreon I should offer some sort of creative incentive for patrons, but also don't want that to affect use of the site itself (like, no levels for titles or admin rights or anything stupid like that, or exclusive games).

Would there be any interest in that in the first place?


Ik I'm late on this, but, Town of Salem forums does something similar for donators and such.
They give tiered titles for donators, which does nothing except change your name color and give you a title and title icon.
The more you donate the better and better the title looks, (not saying the lowest ones look bad, but, it gets fancier in the icon).

It'd do nothing except for looking cool.

Yea, I wouldn’t mind a name color change versus the title.
I was just throwing the idea out there.

I also think for it, the different pateron tiers get different colored names, with the highest one being gold/platinum, or something similar to help show how much the person is supporting.

Yea, no obviously.
I was thinking like Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum for name colors to keep it simple.
Bronze is the lowest, silver is medium-low, gold is medium-high, platinum is highest.
For how much people are pledging, as well.

Find a similar color that works on all themes.

I wouldn't mind what Invis said @tw.
When you donate, you have the option of getting the title or not.
If you don't want it, you don't get it. If you do want it, you get it.
