I seriously thought Patreon was just for nude models trying to sell you access to their work.
It is, you should see the first set of pics CW uploaded.
Bumping this to make sure I don't do something dumb.
When you set up a Patreon you can add rewards tied to certain levels of donations, special content or early access usually. I'm guessing you have to have at least 1 reward level which is why CW has the "reward" setup for donations of $1+, but it doesn't mean anything since this isn't a pay more for certain perks things.
You just select the reward level of $1+ and then the next screen you choose the amount you want to give each month.
This will be done shortly- Thanks Fanatics!
Maybe if the albaugh horse wins the derby, we could get a donation.
Hey, it's graduation time. Mints and nut cups could really sell!
I find it kind of amusing just not too long ago, many posters here were bashing Hawkeyenation for starting to charge a rate for a more premium experience.
I'd just like to be able to listen to an entire podcast without having to refresh the page and then repeatedly drag the mouse to where the podcast magically stopped working.
Honestly, if desktop worked a little better then I think your numbers would go up. You guys are excellent with content, it's just painful to get it.
Um there is a big difference between stating fact behind the changing landscape of sports journalism and online advertising, and trying to hide behind the facade of "premium content you won't find elsewhere (you will) and no trollls! (they will still be there, or it will be an overly moderated board)".
Content isn't changing for any audience on CF unlike HN, just new ways to support the site.
Hawkeyenation is charging because they're forum is so full of garbage you have to pay to get a board without trolls. The problem wasn't them asking for money, it was that they said they couldn't police their members so they'll charge their good members a fee for access to a private forum.
CF isn't charging for a "more premium experience", they're just asking for donations to help with the costs of running the forum.
I'm not saying it's the same, but it's really not all that different. Paying for a better experience on a message board, yes?
I think miller's explanation is pretty hilarious myself, but they are kidding themselves if they aren't feeling the same constraints. But at the end of the day, its paying for a what posters believe is a better experience. So yes, it's kind of a similar.
It's completely different. One is asking for donations to help cover expenses with no special perks or access given, the other is charging a fee for access to a private board that is intended to be troll-free.
I'd just wait until we roll this out before judging. Have some pretty creative things up my sleeve.
Can you please PM me with specifics about your browser, machine, etc. We hired out to look into this on Sunday and nobody can find anything wrong. Seems like it MIGHT be a Chrome specific issue but our devs can't find a problem.
So is CF for sale now???
No. What's with the question?
When all else fails, just tell them to open in incognito.
I do that for all podcasts now, just out of habit. Not a huge deal. (But that would suggest to me that something cookie-related is messing with the playback).
In the meantime, you could just use the download link and play it local. Not a fix, but a workaround.
