I'm incredibly excited to be launching my Patreon and with your support, pursuing the goal of working on open source, desktop-focused software full-time!
@Tay0 Last I checked it didn't quite have the same feature set as Patreon, such as tiers with specific rewards. Is that something they have nowadays?
@JoshStrobl Liberapay definitely doesn't have all the features like patreon. It's FOSS, community supported, not a for profit company with stockholders to placate. patreon has a track record of defunding and banning many folks for minor infractions and even politics. They also banned people for violating TOS on platforms other than their own. I have a lot of trouble with their corporate behavior and cannot support them.
@Tay0 Thanks for the response and insight on why you prefer Liberapay. It's something I'll look into again, though I still prefer Patreon for the reason that I can more easily provide supporters a better ROI like written development updates as well as access to early builds.
