Much love ❤️
@fosstodon I'm now a $1 supporter! Fosstodon is pretty great! Let's keep it on!
@jlin thank you so much!
@fosstodon I made a one-time donation with PayPal a little while back, because Patreon stopped working for me quite a while ago.
But now I see you take Liberapay too, so I subscribed through there just now.
@ataraxia937 thank you!!
@fosstodon just saw you've got liberapay set up as well. I guess I'll join in with a small amount via that service then.
@dwagenk much appreciated. 😊
@fosstodon Supported at $1/mo. I also bought stickers earlier. Figures it's the least I can do for all the bandwidth I use posting pictures of my cat(s).
@ndegruchy we love your cats! 🤣🤣
@fosstodon Can you post another update a few days from now letting us know how much impact this little fund-raising post had?
@ataraxia937 In the post, they said patreon was at $87/month, now it's at $101/month, so it was $14/month effective.
@ataraxia937 (Not bad for 6 hours.)
@fosstodon How much of a cut does Patreon take versus LiberaPay?
Liberapay does not take a cut from your donations and instead relies on donations through their own platform. The money donated goes straight to the donatee, minus a transaction fee which is dependent on the handler (stripe, PayPal or others).
Patreon charges the same transaction fees plus an additional 5% for the platform itself.

@fosstodon I am convinced! Count me in.
