Patreon Donations


#1

I hope this is the right category to post this in.
Somewhere around the forums the following link was posted:
https://www.patreon.com/Sponge

While i appreciate a simple monthly donation system, i think that supporters which donate less than 10$/month should recieve a badge on the forums too. Maybe just a "donator" or "made Spongie proud" badge for 5$ to 10$.
This way even small(er) donations would get rewarded.

Any opinions on this?

EDIT: Whoops, me got ninja fixed. Thanks, Inscrutable! stuck_out_tongue

You're welcome to donate less than the gift margin of 10. However, as each badge has to be added to a user manually, it would start becoming a lot of work if we needed to manually add them to everyone who donated a dollar.


#3

I personally feel like people should be donating to help the project, not to get the badge. I don't think the manual adding of badges should be the issue here.


#4

I don't necessarily disagree. However, if someone donates to Sponge, in my opinion, they have a right to be proud. And, of course, with pride comes wanting people to know about it. smile


#5

To get this right:
I think that one should donate for donations, not to get the badge. But i think that 10$/month is too high as lowest badge... 1$ would be way to low too and make the badge worthless. i'd go with 5$.

Note: i donate if i got some spare money anyways wink

Maybe instead of text, it could be a little symbol next to your username?


#7

I just signed up on Patreon and realised that you created a 1$ option. Me Likes.
Thanks to the brave soul which added that.

As said before i think it's good to keep badges to >10$ donations per month smile


#8

I signed up on the Patreon and donate 10$ per month, May I receive my badge?
